Get glowing this Summer

Get glowing this Summer

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a lovely Father’s Day! I feel like I haven’t posted in a while as I didn’t post last week due to exam season but as the weather we are having here in Britain is absolutely glorious, it seems like the perfect time to share with you the drugstore highlighter that everyone needs this Summer to get glowing! I hope you enjoy my lovelies…

 

To start off, I’m just going to put it out there and say that it wasn’t until this year that I have really got into highlighters (I know, have I been living under a rock) but I can now safely say that I have no idea why I didn’t purchase one sooner because I am now highlighting to the gods! I knew that highlighting/strobing was and still is a big trend but never really got into it myself. I think the thought of putting something sparkly on my face was a bit daunting, but I couldn’t have been more wrong! For those of you who were like me and are a bit apprehensive about highlight or flipping love it like I do now, I have got you covered! A few weeks ago when I was looking for a new highlighter to try, I came across this Maybelline Master Strobing Stick’ which retails for £7.99 and thought I’d give it a try! Now having tried and tested it, I thought I would share with you my opinions and why you should try it too!

Maybelline have two shades available of the strobing stick, ‘light 100‘ which is an iridescent champagne shade which is what I have for pale skin tones and ‘medium 200‘ which is a gold shade for darker skin tones. Although I think there should be maybe more choices of shades, ‘light 100’ works perfectly for me as I’m pale and I’m sure it would suit a lot of other skin tones too. The product is also a nice handy size for travelling and on the go and you get quite a lot of product in the stick for the price as a little goes a long way.

When I tried this product for the first time, one of the things I noticed was how easy it was to apply. The stick shape makes it so easy to draw an even line where you want the highlight to be for example the tops of your cheekbones and brow bone. You can also take some product on your finger and apply it to your face or use a makeup brush which makes the product so versatile which I love!

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect formula wise as I know in the past I have tried some highlighters that have clung to my dry patches which wasn’t exactly great. This highlighter however is SO creamy and easy to blend which makes it super quick and easy to use.  Compared to some cream products, this is definitely not one of those that takes you ages to blend which is amazing. By the end of the day, my highlight is still as blinding as it was when I first applied it in the morning which is another thing I love about this product as you know it won’t budge. I also love the fact that this highlighter gives your skin a lovely natural sheen rather than containing any chunks of glitter which is something I definitely look for in a highlighter as I’m not personally about that glittery life.

How it looks on the skin:

Overall, you can probably tell how much I have fallen in love with this highlighter that will definitely keep me glowing this Summer! If you are looking for a highlighter that is still blinding but gives you a more natural glow, I’d definitely recommend giving it a try for the price! Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this post and in some way found it helpful! Make sure to let me know what your favourite highlighters are as I always love trying new products out even though I’m pretty sure I’ve found my perfect highlight!

Much Love, Amelia xx

    I love highlighting!! I find that powders are easier, but for summer cream highlights give you so much glow!! My fave has to be the benefit watts up! It’s super golden but suits even my pale skin, and it is so long lasting! It compliments a tan so lovely!

      Yes!! I don’t feel like my makeup is complete without it now, I’m obsessed! Yes, I haven’t tried that many powder highlights so let me know if you have any that you would recommend! Yes, for Summer I love the effect cream/liquid highlights give your skin. Ooh thanks for letting me know, that sounds lovely! I’ve had my eye on Benefit high beam for a while but never got round to trying it out after falling in love with this one. I’d definitely recommend this Maybelline one though, it’s so gorgeous for the price! Thanks for reading Sophie xx
