I wasn't a fan of highlighters of any sort a few years back but recently all the strobing overload on Instagram has made me feel I should jump on the bandwagon soon enough. Being picky about highlighters, I really cannot stand ones that have a chunky texture, a flaky consistency or a patchy wear-off. The 'shine' has to be classy and one that blends in with the skin. Anything metallic or with an unnatural gold or silver undertone can find its way back to a jewellery store. Besides Urban Decay's Gwen Stefani LE Blush Palette, this is the only other one that's lived up to my expectations. I don't think highlighting should only be reserved for night outs. I like to make them a part of my daily make-up regime if I can find a good enough one that's both appropriate for work and play.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow is deliciously beautiful! The powders smell of peaches, the glossy tin case is such a keep sake and the intricate embossing makes me not want to use these at all. Attention to detail and quality is ten on ten here. You get three well thought of shades in the palette; a dusky sunset, bronzy pink, a true peach and a subtle sunkissed, bronze. None of the shades are ones you'd already have in your collection. My favourite is the dusky pink highlighter that puts all champagne and silver highlighters to shame. It's got a nice, visible dew that adheres to the curves of the face so well that it almost looks like it's from within. I love how it blends in well with almost any base and fades off gradually, melting into the skin. Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow palette is a perfect trio for those warmer days. Just pair it with a tinted moisturiser, some concealer and a bright lip to channel a glowy tan look.
