The New Highlighter On The Block

Saturated Colour Cosmetics Make Me Shimmer review

Highlighters have promptly become the 'must-have' product in everyone's makeup bag in recent years. People no longer apply their '5-minute face' without even a little bit of highlighter. If you read my Becca Champagne Pop review then you'll have probably guessed by now that I'm hopping on this highlighter bandwagon and I've found some real gems. They come in all forms from liquid, to powder to creams. The latest highlighter I've been enjoying is this highlighting pencil called 'Make Me Shimmer' from Saturated Colour Cosmetics*. 


   1. Shade:   


It's a beautiful golden shade packed with lots of shimmer. The shimmer is quite pearlescent looking on the skin which provides a healthy glow and a 'lit from within' look. It gives a subtle luminous sheen to the skin which is perfect for everyday wear.

   2. Colour Payoff   


The colour payoff is excellent for a cream product and considering the £6 price point I'm very impressed! It isn't overly intense so it's amazing for daytime wear but I was able to build it up easily as well. It would also be perfect for beginners as it's very easy to use and you can go light-handed with it too. 


   3. Formula:   


The formula is actually my favourite thing about this as it's really creamy which makes applying it so simple. It literally glides onto the skin effortlessly and is much easier to use than the No7 highlighting stick which drags my skin a little.

   4. How I Use It:   


The pencil-style applicator makes it very easy to use on the inner corner of the eye, the brow bone, down the centre of the nose and on the cupid's bow. The style of this pen is much more practical than the Clinique Chubby Sticks or the No7 highlighting stick which are neglected in my make collection because what's the point if you can't highlight the smaller areas of your face? I usually apply two layers of it for daytime wear and then if I want my makeup to be a little bit more dramatic looking I apply it under a powder product. I find that this makes a powder that's lacking a little in pigmentation really pop for a dramatic highlight.

   5. Where To Buy:   


It can be bought on Saturated Colour Cosmetics' website and it's a bargain at £6!


The photo below is me wearing 2 layers of the highlighter on my cheekbones and 1 layer on my brow bone, down the centre of my nose and on my cupid's bow - I'm in love with it!

Have you tried any products from this brand?

Love,
