      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Don't waste your money and explore other highlighters available on the market.

      "Turn up your "all that" appeal with miss popularity. All you need is our new precision highlighter in all the right places and you're "all that" just like that. This soft white shimmering highlighter makes it so easy."

      " Miss popularity's secret lesson for highlighting: For bright eyes... apply to the triangle of the eyes & blend.
      Perk up your smile... apply to the outer corners of lips & blend.
      Slimify your nose... apply 3 dots down the middle & blend.
      To enhance cleavage... apply above your bra line and blend."


      REASONS FOR PURCHASE

      I didn't buy this, it was a Christmas present from a family member. My mum had passed on the message that I quite like Benefit, so that particular year I got lots of 'not quite me' cosmetics chosen for me!

      My reasons for not purchasing this is that I'm not overly fond of shimmer and glitter. Nothing personal against Benefit! :P

      PRICE / APPEARANCE / AVAILABILITY

      This highlighter is no longer available from Benefit, but you can still get it from selected outlet websites.

      While it is important to avoid fakes, when a certain product (like this one) has been discontinued, it is highly likely that you can pick up the genuine article from another website. The Benefit 'best sellers' such as Highbeam, the face powders like 'Hoola', and certain eye and brow sets are most often faked.

      Websites such as www.discountcosmetics4u.co.uk and www.clickfragrance.co.uk still stock this highlighter, as do certain ebay sellers. Stick to UK sellers and check seller feedback to avoid fakes.

      On ebay you can pick up a full sized highlighter (2 grams) for as little as £4.99. The original RRP was £17.50. So quite a saving there!

      As you may expect from Benefit, the packaging is very 'good looking'. The box it comes in features a little tutorial on the side, with pictures and instructions for use.

      The bottle / tube is strong clear plastic, it has a screw top lid and is similar to a slim nail polish bottle. Inside, the wand has a sponge tip and the powder is only picked up right at the bottom of the pot. The sides are protected with another layer of plastic, so you don't end up with too much product coming out.

      APPLICATION AND MY THOUGHTS ON THIS HIGHLIGHTER

      While this isn't my usual type of highlighter, I gave it a fair trial. I liked the tutorial aspect of the packaging and ripped it out and kept it in my makeup box.

      As advised, I tried this on my brow bones and the corners of my eyelids. Very easy to apply with the sponge tip applicator. I dotted the powder as instructed, and my first thoughts were that this powder is very glitzy and shimmery. It made me think of a silver / white powder eyeshadow more than a highlighter. When I blended this, I used my fingers. I wanted to blend this into my skin as much as possible to lose the glitz and just leave a subtle highlight.

      Unfortunately it wouldn't blend as much as I would have liked, and made me look as though I was wearing silver eyeshadow.

      So much so, that one of my very blunt friends said to me "eww yuck, you're wearing silver eyeshadow!" and still refers to the 'silver eyeshadow incident' two years later! So much for giving a different product a chance!

      So for me, this didn't work as a brow highlighter. I switched back to High Beam which is about as shimmery as I can handle!

      I liked the idea of slimming down my nose, and applied as per the picture instructions. Needless to say, all this did was give me a glittery nose. Never mind!

      On the corners of my mouth - the same. Just looked like I'd been eating powdered dougnuts.

      On the collar bones, I have to say it wasn't too bad. Dotted about and blended in with enough vigour, and this will be ok for a night out. I think other products work better though. Something you can apply with a great big powder brush.

      For longevity, I'll give this product it's dues. It is a real nightmare to remove! If you loved this highlighter I'm sure that'd be a selling point, but when you want to remove it as soon as you've applied it, well it's not ideal!

      OVER ALL

      I'm really sorry to say it, but I can see why Benefit no longer sell this on their website (or in the department stores with Benefit counters).
      Really, they do some great highlighters, so this extra product was not needed.

      It would be great for pre teens who love to play with glitzy 'fun' products, but with a £17.50 RRP it would (or should!) be very out of their price range.

      I can't recommend this product, but if you want to try it for yourself, seek out the cheapest price going on ebay so you don't waste too much cash!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good for achieving a bright wide eyed look but possibly not worth the money.

      As more and more highlighters are appearing on the market, it is becoming increasing difficult to decide which one is right for you. With the variety of shades and colours, powders and liquids, it can be confusing to know where to start.
      Miss Popularity is described as being the perfect precision highlighter. The bottle, which resembles a pot of nail varnish, contains the so called magical soft white shimmering powder and will supposedly turn you into a party princess. The dazzling powder's job is to reflect the light thereby highlighting the areas of your face to which it is applied giving you a sparkling radiance. That's my first cue to tell you that this product is not entirely suitable for day to day wear and is better suited for when you are dolling up for a night out.
      Inside the lid is a rounded sponge applicator which is used to apply the powder to your face. The box comes with instructions on how to use it, telling you that you need to dot the powder onto different areas of your face and then blend it in.
      It comes with a whole variety of claims and promises. Use it on your nose to make it appear slimmer. Use it under your brow to give you bright eyes. Use it on the outer corners of your mouth to perk up your smile. Use it above your bra line to enhance your cleavage.
      I would agree that it brightens your eyes. You can also use it in the corner of your eyes as well. But as for the other claims, although I still do as instructed, I can't say I've noticed any incredible results. You need to be extremely careful when blending the powder as well or you may end up looking like you've had a fight with a bag of flour, especially when using it around the mouth.
      Another problem is that it is difficult to control the powder and a lot of it will fall onto the floor when pulling the brush out. A few times when applying it to my eyes, the powder has fallen off onto my cheeks and ruined the rest of my make up. Plus due to the price of the product, it's a shame to have any of the powder go to waste like this.
      Overall, I will continue to use this product before a night out, particularly above my eyes. However once it's run out, I won't be buying it again and will find a new highlighter. That said, if I received one as a gift, I still wouldn't be disappointed!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A pointless product

        *Introduction*

        In October, I was starting a bit of my Christmas shopping whilst in Debenhams. I bought a few items from Benefit for mum for Christmas and myself just as a treat. The make up sales lady was extremely helpful and I even got a free product for buying two items. The free product was Benefit Miss Popularity 10ml Highlighter. I, like most people, do love a freebie so I walked away quite chuffed wanting to try it out.

        *The Claim*

        Benefit Miss Popularity is a precision highlighter for face and eyes.

        *About the Product*

        Benefit Miss Popularity...turn up your "all that" just like that. All you need is Benefit's precision highlighter in all the right places and your "all that" just like that". This soft, shimmering highlighter makes it so easy.

        *Application*

        The application of Benefit Miss Popularity Highlighter will depend on what/where it is that you're applying it.

        For bright eyes: apply this to the triangle of the eyes and blend.
        Perk up your smile: apply to the outer corners of lips and blend.
        Slimify your nose: apply 3 dots down the middle of your nose and blend.
        To enhance cleavage: apply above your bra line and blend.

        To apply, all you need to do is unscrew the lid which is also attached to the applicator. Tap the wand gently on the edge of the lid to remove any excess product and this way you can tap it back into the pot and prevent wasting it. Then apply away to the place above that you want to enhance.

        *Price and Availability*

        Benefit Miss Popularity can be purchased at the very expensive price of £17.50. *SMASH* I think that was your jaw dropping to the flow. You heard me correctly with that rather steep price. And especially considering that it is certainly not an essential product or one that I think it overly amazing.

        This highlighter can be purchased from most of the larger Boots stores as well as Debenhams, John Lewis and House of Fraser. You can also buy it from is online at www.boots.com or at www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk.

        *My Opinion*

        The packaging: Benefit Miss Popularity Highlighter is packaged in a small bottle which is similar in shape to that of nail polish. The bottle is compact and consists of two parts: the base and the lid. The bottle base of this highlighter is clear although it has a white sticker on with the product name. This sticker is designed to look like a sash, therefore getting a pageant theme going. The lid of this product is a bright blue/purple and is also attached to the applicator. As for the applicator, it is a stick and at the end is a foam piece which dips into the product in the bottle.

        The packaged bottle actually comes in a cardboard box which is purple, girly and a little bit over the top if I'm honest with curtains pictured on it. This cardboard box has a Velcro slip opening which details hint and tips on how and where to apply the highlighter.

        As with most Benefit products, I like the design of the packaging. It looks cool, stylish although a little bit like a toy that you would buy your children. It is also practical and small enough to be good for travel. The packaging is however a little bit cheeky and deceptive as it has a hollow tube down the middle therefore you don't get as much of the powder as you initially think.


        Colour and texture: The colour of this highlighter is white. It also has quite a shimmer to its shade however this shimmer isn't over the top, in fact it is actually quite subtle. As for the texture, it is powdery and light. It applies with ease to your skin and isn't difficult to blend in.

        So for the purposes of this review I have tried and tested this product in each of the areas that it says it can enhance. And these are my thoughts on each.

        - For bright eyes: Ok so Benefit pass this test with flying colours. When you apply this to the triangle of the eyes and blend, it really does brighten up the area around your eyes. It makes you look more awake and doesn't even look like you are wearing make-up.

        - Perk up your smile: Not so much. When you apply to the outer corners of lips and blend it supposedly perks up your smile although I found the effects of this to be very minimal.

        - Slimify your nose: I had my doubts that Benefit Miss Popularity would be able to slimmify your nose and I think that I was justified with my doubts. I have a bit of a thing about my nose. I think it is quite big so when I saw this claim I thought great, it might help, although didn't hold out much hope. Good job too as this highlighter makes absolutely no difference when applied to my nose. What a load of rubbish!

        - To enhance cleavage: I haven't used the product to enhance cleavage as it isn't something that I need to do but personally, I can't see that it would be particularly effective at doing this.

        Staying power: The enduring power of this highlighter is actually pretty good. As I have only tended to use it for nights out, I am not talking about wear for 14 hours, but for 5 or 6, it lasts well. At least on your eyes it does anyway.

        Longevity of the product: Benefit Miss Popularity Highlighter will probably last you quite a long time simply because it is not an essential make up item that you will use every day. Instead, it is a product that you will probably wear on evenings out or when you are trying to impress.

        *Would I Recommend This Product?*

        As I got this product for free when I bought Benefit Play Sticks Foundation and Concealer and Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes I am not too fussed that it wasn't a fantastic product but I would certainly feel aggrieved if I had paid £17.50 for it as it is a lot of money to waste on something that isn't actually that great. Needless to say, I won't be buying it in the future and I think I've done my job in telling you not to bother either. But if it is free, why not?

        *Overall*

        Benefit Miss Popularity Highlighter doesn't have a particularly massive impact with me. Whether that is because I have pale skin I'm not sure but it does mean that I'm not a big fan of this product. It costs a lot of money and in my opinion, doesn't warrant this price. I would feel very aggrieved had I not got this product for nothing so I advise you test it out to see if you like it first.

          3 out of 5 stars

          Benefit Miss Popularity


          I recently bought one of these Miss Popularity highlighters from the Benefit counter in Boots as a bit of an impulse purchase, I really didn't need any more makeup at the moment and I already own quite a few different highlighter type products, but I just couldn't resist. As soon as I was within touching distance of the counter the Benefit sales assistant swooped in and before I knew it I was having a mini makeover. Benefit is one of my favourite makeup brands.

          You can use this as a highlighter for both your face and eyes, anywhere that you want to accentuate. Personally, I mix some of this in with my eye shadow to give me a little bit extra sparkle and then apply a bit more around the brow area and inner eye. I find that this makes for a great effect on my eyes and because this is a white shimmer powder it brightens my eye area making me look more awake. You can either apply this very lightly for a bit of shimmer as a day look or apply it more thickly for a heavier more glamorous night look. It goes on really is and you don't need or shouldn't rub it in too much or it will like it has disappeared.

          Furthermore, you can also mix a little bit of this in with your foundation to give yourself a little extra shimmer. However, I would recommend only using a little, as with this product a little looks nice and a lot looks a bit costume-ish. Alternatively, you can mix a little bit of this in with your blusher which will highlight your checks and again give your face that little extra sparkle. One of the reasons I really like this product is the amount of different ways you can apply it and use it to accentuate what you already have.

          You are also meant to be able to use this to slimify your nose apply 3 dots down the middle and then blend. I did try this once and then wiped if off and applied my makeup as normal. It just made my nose look a bit shimmer and a bit messy, maybe I just lack the knack or this is just something that isn't going to work for me, but it's something I have never had any concerns over.

          The last little trick with this highlighter and one that I have tried but don't really use, you can apply this to your cleavage. Personally, I prefer to go out looking a little classier than having makeup highlighting my breasts. I think this is a bit of a gimmick by Benefit.

          Or you can very simply just use this how you would use a normal highlighter and apply it directly over the top of makeup to the brow and cheek areas.

          The little bottle that you get this in does come with its own applicator. I have used it a few times but I have found that if you want to get any sort of precision then you need to use an additional brush, as the applicator is a bit chunky.

          As with most Benefit products this is a rather pricey purchase, a small tub of this will cost £17.50. However, like most Benefit products this will last you for a long time, I have been using mine for about a month now and it doesn't look like I have made much of any dent in it. I have read some mixed reviews of this Miss Popularity but I have really enjoyed using it and I have been very pleased with the results.

          Personally I like this product, I think this is a bit fun and funky, which does act as a nice highlighter. I don't think it is the best highlighter out there but I like how versatile this can be. I tend to mix this with an eye shadow and use around the eyes, all the other uses I think might be better suited to someone a bit younger than me. I imagine I would have gotten a lot more use out of this when I was in my teens.

          Overall, the best feature of this product is its versatility and I do like it. However, it is nothing that special and does deliver pretty average results that you would expect from all highlighter products. I would like to be able to give this more but I think to be fair it deserves a pretty average 3 out of 5 stars, maybe getting closer to 3.5.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A very disappointing product from Benefit

          Ok like in my previous reviews of Benefit products I will give a little overview about how it Benefit started; Back in 1976 twin sisters Jean and Jane Ford opened up their first Boutique in San Francisco known as " The Face Place", The sisters passion for make-up mixed along with the high quality products they sold, their originality and the sisters combined sense of humour ,which we see depicted through the sassy packaging and witty product names today started to attract a lot of attention and in 1990 they re branded and became as what we all know today "Benefit". At that point they had 5 Boutiques within the San Francisco area but with the help of word of mouth, popularity and high demand it soon started to see Benefit counters opening in Department stores across the world. They had literally put fun into make-up and girls and women absolutely loved it.

          Now if any of you have read any of my Benefit reviews before you will know that Make-up and Benefit products are one of my Penchants in life, I just love their make and find it very hard passing a Benefit counter without sneaking a peek to see whats new and usually purchasing something to add to my ever growing collection
          Now just before christmas I was updating my make up and Benefit had a promotional offer that if you purchased any two benefit products in one transaction you would receive a free gift worth £17.50
          This free Gift was "Miss Popularity"

          Miss Popularity is a precision highlighter that is designed for highlighting key areas of your face, that by using this product Benefit claim that you can create big bright eyes, perk up your smile, slimify your nose, enhance your clevage and be popular! That suitable for both daytime and evening wear you can enhance your best assets or glam up and add that extra bit of shimmer fot a night out.

          Now the procuct comes in a cute, sassy and very girlie rectangular box which is purple, pink and lilac in colour, it has a small window to the front which is incorported very well within the box design as surrounding the window printed are a very threatrical pair of curtains which display the product inside very well.
          To the left hand side of the box is a full out flap with a section which reveals a glamorous beauty queen and tips and tricks for the user of the product.

          Housed within this box is a small white bottle with a purple screw top lid
          now this bottle which the highlighter comes in is extremely deceptive and misleading. The screw top bottle is small as it is so to find once you open it for the first time that it acually contains a small hollow tube down the centre and thats all the powder is contained within is disappointing.
          So if your expecting the bottle to be full of powder its not at all, infact the bottle contains a very minimal amount which really does question why its so very expensive.

          Now once you unscrew the lid you have access to a rounded sponge applicator, now this is also housed within this hollow tube so it will give you even more of an idea how little powder there actually is inside 2g/0.07oz.

          Inside the tube Miss Popularity it's actually a very fine powder, it comes out on the applicator looking sheer white but when you apply it to the skin it leaves a transparent shimmer with hints of silver and iridescent pink. Application is easy and you only need a minial amount on the tip of the applicator when you apply to the desired areas.

          Benefit has some great suggestions where you can apply Miss Popularity:

          As I said the box has a section of Tips and tricks:

          For bright eyes... apply to the triangle of the eyes & blend.
          Perk up your smile... apply to the outer corners of lips & blend.
          Slimify your nose... apply 3 dots down the middle & blend.
          To enhance cleavage... apply above your bra line and blend.

          Now I will say that when applying the powder formula blends really well although when it comes to applying to the inner corner of the eye I did wish the applicator tip wasnt so big.
          It leaves a nice shimmer to the skin and not a glittery look which some highlighters out there can do.

          Now to be totally honest and I am very supprised that Im saying this about a benefit product but I am very glad that I got this as a freebie from the benefit counter, I certainly would not have paid £17.50 for this product. I was not impressed with the results at all. It did nothing to perk up my smile, it didnt slimify my nose and certainly did nothing for my clevage, it just made me look all shimmery. The only thing that Miss Popularity had going for it is that it did help to make my eyes look more brighter and sparkly, other than that I would call it no more than a shimmer powder.

          Unless you are looking for a highlighter for your eyes I wouldnt bother.
          Retailing at £17.50 from Benefit, various department stores and Boots for 2g of powder I personally believe that this is a very poor and overpriced product from Benefit but I guess that this depends on your own personal preferece as I have friends that do nothing but hype about this product but personally I wouldn't bother.
          If you are interested and your not getting it as a freebie I would advise that you test it out first at a local benefit counter, let one of the girls show what it does on you.

          A very disappointing Product from Benefit.

            Disadvantages

            very overpriced and not realy much of a difference to being natural

            This product was, I found, completely useless. Unlike the rest of the products in the Benefit range which are expensive but definitely value for their cost, this seemed to have no justification for its price. It did make my eyes look slightly brighter and opened up when used above my eyebrows but when used on my nose seemed to make it look wider and greasy instead of small and neater. This product does seem like a waste of time, it is barely noticeable when applied. I found it to stand out from the the rest of their products which I have always been very pleased with. I suppose it does highlight and make skin, for example on the chest area, look brighter and fresher but I would steer clear of using this on your face unless you want to look shimmery. This product does not go well with matt foundation as it contrasts the look and makes it too shiny.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            If you've got the money then its worth it.

            I was going through a phase of being quite into new make up things and decided I needed a highlighter. I had never worn one before and feeling a bit flush I decided to treat myself to Benefit's Miss Popularity highlighter.

            To be honest I was won over by the packaging. It comes in a brightly coloured pink and purple box set up like a show with curtains opening over the highlighter. I thought this was really cool and shelled out the hefty £17.50 that it cost. The packaging of the actual bottle inside is quite attractive white and purple. It contains lots of tiny white shimmer particles aimed at highlighting your face. There is a tube inside the bottle which is empty, the bottle only contains 2g however the packaging is designed to make you think it contains more than that.

            Benefit claims this product highlights eyes and mouth and slimifies the nose. I have added it to my nose and to honest cannot really see the difference, the same with the corners of the mouth trick. It does however work with the eyes (in my opinion). You apply to the inner corner of the eye, the outer corner and above the middle in a triangle and this opens out and brightens up the eyes. I started applying a tiny amount of the powder just over the top of my cheek and feel that works very well too.

            Over all this is an expensive product for a few uses. I'm a sucker for it though, pretty packaging, shiney powder and the promise of making you popular!

              Disadvantages

              lovely highlighter

              My friend got this product for her birthday and I have two minds about the product.

              About the product:

              The highlighter comes in a 2g bottle, filled with shimmering highlighter. Benefit claims- Miss popularity's secret lesson for highlighting: For bright eyes... apply to the triangle of the eyes & blend. Perk up your smile... apply to the outer corners of lips & blend. Slimify your nose... apply 3 dots down the middle & blend. To enhance cleavage... apply above your bra line and blend.

              The packaging is typical of Benefits style, it is fun and consists of a purple sash type label across a white background with the words Miss Popularity on it. I think the name of the product is a little bit ... I don't know. You make your own mind up.

              In my opinion I thought the product was excellent and managed to brighten up my eyes excellently. It made my eyes look a lot bigger and brighter and you could hardly tell it was makeup. It doesn't really look as though the nose is slimmed down, but again this is only a trick of the light in the first place. No change on the mouth. It really compliments pale skin as opposed to dark or tanned skin in my opinion.

              I would recommend this product, although it is quite expensive, those who are fans of benefit cosmetics will love this highlighter. Although it seems a bit of an unecessary product, it is perfect for a night out so limit its use and it will last for ages.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Get down to the makeup testers before buying

              Now if you know me you'll know I don't use makeup all that often. For that reason, I tend to stick to makeup staples such as mascara, eyeshadow and lip gloss as I don't like spending half an hour or so just putting makeup on.

              So when my friend (the same one who convinced me to spend over £150 on makeup in one go last year) recommended this to me, I was - to be honest - a bit confused.

              The name of the product doesn't exactly help as it's simply called 'Miss Popularity', the main name on the packaging you notice straight away. The clear bottle with purple lid is filled with white stuff, making me think 'what's that?!'

              I was soon to find out as my friend showed me hers and demonstrated it for me, and yes, I gave in and ended up buying some.

              Miss Popularity, when you unscrew the tiny bottle, is a white powder which is applied with the built in stick brush. If you've ever seen the film Cruel Intentions, it is exactly like Sarah Michelle Geller's character who carries cocaine in a cross 'bottle' around her neck - probably not something you'd want to go through customs with!

              To apply, simply tap the excess off the brush and and drag across your face. Benefit recommends you use it down your nose to make it look thinner, on your browline to enhance your eyes - basically anywhere you want your face to look more highlighted.

              I have to say that with its typical hefty Benefit price tag (£17.50 from http://benefitcosmetics.co.uk), this is a definitely 'try before you buy' type product, and is likely to only appeal to makeup/Benefit fanatics. I personally still have almost the whole bottle left even after a year, because quite frankly I think it's an unnecessary product. I'm also lazy and don't see it as making enough difference to my look to make it one of my makeup staples.

              In case this affects your view, I have olive skin...but my friend who has white skin didn't look particularly different with it on either. She likes it though so maybe it's just a matter of taste, and the psychological impact!

                awsome highlighting golden powder

                Benefit's Miss Popularity is one of my absolute favourite Benefit products ever! It's available from benefitcosmetics.co.uk, larger Boots stores, Debenhams, House of Fraser etc. It currently retails for £17.50.

                This is a pearl white/ golden coloured powder, suitable for highlighting. It comes in a little bottle with a sponge tip applicator but I prefer to use my own make up brushes to get the effect I'm after, as I find that this little applicator tends to give off too much product.

                I love using this powder as a brow highlight and on my cheekbones as it adds a golden glow and compliments my tan. it's the perfect golden highlight colour for me and I think a little goes a long way. It just suits my olive skin so well and goes with practically every look I create... I just love it!

                I highly recommend you try some at your local Benefit counter... I doubt you'd be disappointed.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Does one of the five things it claims to

                Benefit Miss Popularity Highlighter

                * Cost * £17.50 from Boots or direct from www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk

                * Packaging * Miss Popularity comes in a 2g/0.07oz small bottle that somewhat resembles that of a nail varnish. The bottle itself is sleek and stylish and is very elegant looking. The bottle comes packaged in a cardboard box which is blue and purple and very girly and has an opening with tips on where to apply the highlighter.

                * What Benefit Say * Turn up your "all that" appeal with miss popularity. All you need is our new precision highlighter in all the right places and you're "all that" just like that. This soft white shimmering highlighter makes it so easy.

                Tips and tricks: miss popularity's secret lesson for highlighting: For bright eyes... apply to the triangle of the eyes & blend. Perk up your smile... apply to the outer corners of lips & blend. Slimify your nose... apply 3 dots down the middle & blend. To enhance cleavage... apply above your bra line and bend.

                * My Opinion * I decided to buy this product as I felt like treating myself and had quite a few points on my Boots Advantage Card. I had just had a baby and had been suffering from sleepless nights even before the birth, so I was looking for something to open my eyes and make me look a bit more awake. I wouldn't usually consider buying a highlighter and I certainly wouldn't pay £17.50 for one, but I decided as it was going to be free I would give it a try.

                I bought the highlighter primarily for my eyes, but this Miss Popularity's secret lesson to highlighting claims to teach you how to not only create big, bright eyes, but also perk up your smile, simplify your nose, enhance your cleavage and be popular!!!

                I used this on my eyes with fantastic results. You apply it to the corners of your eyes and also a dot at the top, so you have three dots which would be a triangle if you joined them. You blend it in and voila! This does give your eyes a bright look and makes them look sparkly and awake, without obviously showing that you are wearing make up. I think even if someone did notice something about your eyess, there's no way they'd be able to tell you that it was make up that was making them look so bright. I really was pleased with the results with my eyes and so decided to give it a go elsewhere. I have to admit I noticed no difference whatsoever to either my mouth or nose. I followed the instructions perfectly. At the mouth I felt it just blended right into my make up and there was no difference. The same with my nose. I thought maybe it was just because I had foundation etc on my face and so gave the "enhancing cleavage" method a go. Nope! No joy there either, it just shimmered and looked like I'd been sweating a lot - lovely!

                I don't think you get a lot for your money either. The bottle itself is very small and it has a hollow tube down the middle of the inside, so although when you buy it you think that the bottle is full of the highlighter powder, this is not the case. I think the purpose is so that the powder doesn't go all the way up the applicator and so that you don't get too much on the applicator at once, but this is very misleading.

                * Will I buy it again? * Absolutely not and although I'm a little disappointed that I spent 1750 of my hard earned advantage card points on this, at least I didn't spend any actual money!

                * Would I recommend this to others? * If you have money to throw away and need a good highlighter for your eyes then yes. If you're like 99% of the population and don't want to waste your money, no! It does work very well for highlighting your eyes which is why I have given this 2 stars, but for all that it claims, it doesn't measure up well and I certainly wouldn't call it value for money.
