Until recently I have never been much of a beauty person, I had a non existent skin care regime and all I ever used were cheap high street cosmetics. For the past I don't know how long exactly but I'd guess as long as 2 years I have never worn blusher or highlighter, I didn't quite get why I needed it and due to my cheap foundation it would never last. But alas, as I have travelled further into the world of beauty I thought it was time to invest!
I headed over to Boots with the intention of picking up one of the new Revlon Lacquer Balms when saw this highlighter which seemed perfect and seeing as there was a 3 for 2 offer on I deemed it an acceptable purchase! Seeing as summer is approaching I decided to go with the slightly darker shades to give a bit of a 'summer glow'.
I'm have a pretty pale complexion, often even the lightest shades of foundations are far too dark for me, but this highlighter even though it looks dark doesn't leave me looking too ridiculous. With just one light brush over, my face looks glowing and has some colour to it rather than looking like my pale self. The highlighter has just the right amount of 'shimmer' to it that I look like I have a 'just back from holiday' glow which is great!
Now as a beauty novice, all I need to learn is how and where to properly apply it and whether I can use it as apposed to blusher as I have been doing. If you're a beauty guru who has answers to my questions please share your wisdom in the comments!
