Highlighters/Illuminators - Liz Earle

Now that we have the sun shining in full glory, I thought it would be just perfect to do a series of posts on Highlighters/Illuminators.The posts will be a summary of my favourites till date, a mini review about them, where and how to use them and so on.

Highlighters are great to use in the winter too as you do not naturally have a glow then, but I feel its purpose is best achieved when complemented with naturally dewy skin, the sun and all that tanning going around.

In no particular order, here's a Liz Earle Sheer Gold Shimmer that I have been using since a while.This baby is the first to star as it can be used on the face as well as the body.

You have to get those legs out now. It's a rule!

Besides the superficial benefits, this also contains Aloe vera, Vitamin E and 10 essential oils to keep the skin moisturised. Inclusion of the oils in the ingredients makes it smell heavenly, just like other Liz Earle products.

It is a golden liquid in the tube with glitter particles. These are not too fine not to show up but not as chunky too, making it appropriate to wear on the face.

I just love the yellowy gold colour as its quite unique to be honest. It's either dark bronze or a 24-k gold colour you'll usually come across. This is the first time I have come across a soft yellow based golden highlighter.

Because of its yellow undertones, it mimics the sun kissed glow that the skin would have in the sun. The glitter particles may look a bit harsh in the closeup but on application on the body, it just gives a lovely radiant finish with an added bit of colour.

It's subtle and can be easily layered on for a dramatic finish. You can ofcourse use it on the face but it is much more suitable for the body and works best there. 

I have more lovely affordable illuminating products coming in the next few posts so don't forget to join me then!

50ml tube for £8.95.


That is so pretty! I don't think we have Liz Earle in the US :(
