Advantages: long lasting, looks amazing, flawless skin, adds shimmer
Disadvantages: a little costly
I have used this product one and off for a number of years now and absolutely love it. I tend to find benefit products can be a little hit or miss, but ones I do like are firm favourites I purchase again and again.
This is essentially a shimmer or highlighter product which you can apply to several areas in your face to achieve a highlighted look. I tend to use it on my cheek bones, bridge of my nose and under my eyebrows to add a little shimmer and definition.
The product comes in what is best described as a nail varnish style bottle. It is made of glass and has a plastic twist lid which comes off to reveal a stick with my brush on the end much like the ones you get in a nail varnish. You basically dot it onto your skin where you want it and then rub it in accordingly.
I find that it rubs in really easily and gives an instant little shine to your skin. It has the effect of brightening your skin, giving definition to these areas of your face and smoothing the skin. It also gives the impression of light, flawless skin that looks dewy and fresh. I find I tend to use it specifically when I am going somewhere special to enhance the look of my make up and to add a little shine. I have a cheaper highlighter I use for everyday so I prefer to save this more expensive and superior one for special occasions.
I think generally the design of the bottle and the quality of the highlighter formula is of the highest standard I have come across for this kind of product. It gives a great look to my skin, enhances my make up and lasts all night with no need for a second application.
It also lasts for absolutely ages. I don't use it everyday but do use it consistently for special occasions or nights out, probably once a week or every two weeks. I have been using this product for well over 3 years and it has still not run out yet. As it does dwindle it makes it harder to get the remnants out of the pot but, because it is glass, you can see inside to see what is left and where is collects in the bottle.
It does cost £18.00 which is quite expensive. Though I would love to be able to find the same quality cheaper I never have done and so stick with this product. I suppose this price isn't too bad considering how long it lasts anyway!
Overall, I think this is a great product which will last you many moons.
Summary: A star of a product.
