Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish Review

Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish Review

Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish is a product that so many of my friends swear by, a product that has forever been on my beauty wish list and yet never purchased. Why? I truly do not know but as the old adage goes "good things come to those who wait" and my goodness is it good. If you need the push to try Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish, here it is...

Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish Review

Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish comes presented within a small, screw top jar that is compact and offers a wide enough opening for the fluffiest of brushes and the chubbiest of fingers. In true Topshop style the packaging is fairly pretty - a frosted glass jar with a white lid that is adorned with doodles in the shape of stars. The size of the product is ideal for both travel (yes it does feature glass but it is robust and not prone to shattering) and everyday use, yes it is dinky in stature but trust me when I say one jar will last for what seems like a life time.

I'm struggling to perfectly describe the shade of Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish, in some lights it has an evident pink, opalescent tone - a light, illuminating oyster pink if you will. Then in other instances it has a strong yellow reflection which reminds me a lot of powder highlighters such as NARS Albatross and Topshop Sunbeam Highlighter. Best put, Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish is complex, difficult to dupe but completely universal. The main problem as you will see below is that light reflects off this product making it extremely difficult to photograph on the skin. I tried my best but I am sorry the photos do not do the highlighter any justice.

As you may have gathered Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish is a cream product but rather than being overly soft, this features a firm almost (and I say almost texture). As such I do find it best to apply using the fingertips as the heat of the hands helps to warm the product and aid application. I personally dab Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish onto the skin and then blend out using a tapered, fluffy brush. I have found that Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish blends out with ease and despite being a cream product it does not lift any product applied underneath, nor does it cake over powder textures. If like myself you suffer from enlarged pores and steer clear from highlighting for this very reason, make Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish your next cosmetic investment - it does not gather nor settle into the pores, if anything if glides over such imperfection helping to create a flawless complexion. If that is not enough once applied to the skin, this glowy highlighter quickly transforms from a cream into a powder ensuring prolonged wear - even on the oiliest of complexions.

As an afterthought, as Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish is a cream to powder formulation, I see no reason why this couldn't double up as cream eyeshadow or be gently mixed into liquid foundation or blush for a truly radiant finish.

In a nutshell this is the perfect cream texture and I urge everyone to try it out; every make up bag needs a jar.

  15. Unfortuntely this product did not work for me, It kinda removed my makeup when I applied it. The other shade Topshop offer; Gleam. Is much better and probably my most used highlighter!
