No.7 Instant Radiance Bronzing Highlighter

 Hello Lovelies!

Do you remember a couple of months ago when I discovered the No.7 Instant Radiance Highligher? You know the one, I raved about it at the time and it has been a firm staple in my make-up bag since (and has featured in quite a few Instagram pictures) Well being the geniuses that they are, those lovely people over at No.7 have only gone and released a Bronzed version! So really I had to pick it up, it was just calling my name!

The packaging of this is the same as the original, small compact and simple. They really hit the nail on the head with the packaging of this, it's perfect for throwing in your handbag for top-up's throughout the day and it doesn't take up much room in your make-up bag. The only difference between this and the original is the colour, instead of the baby pink it is a bronzed stick. To dispense the product you just twist the bottom and it comes up, but you really only need the tiniest amount to get a gorgeous glow! And considering you need such a small amount, you actually get so much product. I've just about leveled out the top of my original one and I have been using that since before Christmas! So it's amazing value for money!

The formula again, is the same as the original and it was the formula that won me over with the first one. I had previously been in love with the Jemma Kidd All Over Radiance cream because it was so beautifully creamy but we all know why I had to end that affair (sob!!) and started on my hunt for a replacement. I find that this highligher is actually creamier than the Jemma Kidd. It just blends like a dream- I actually use my fingers to apply because I find if I use it straight from the stick it looks a little too harsh! You can use it anywhere on your body, so I have great plans for the bronzed version. Once it (eventually) gets warmer, and I have my legs out and tanned I want to pop a little bit of this down the centre of them to give them abit more of a glow, on my collarbone and maybe my arms? I'll just be a bronzed, shimmery being come summertime! The other good thing about this highlighter is it is shimmery, not glittery! Nothing worse (in my humble opinion) than having glitter specks on your cheekbones -less is more!

I honestly don't think I can rave about this highlighter more, and if you are a highlighter lover like me you need this in your life! Available online here!

  8. It bums me out that we don't have very many No.7 products in the states. Most of the time anything I find is from their skincare line. It seems like a lovely product and I love all your ideas of other clever places to use it!

  9. I've really gotten into highlighter lately, and trying my best to contour also, and this highlighter looks great! I really want to try Lightscapade by MAC :)
