Illamasqua illuminator (fondle) - Review


Highlighters are a compulsary item in my makeup bag, i prefer them over blushes or any face product for a natural fresh healthy glow , heres my thoughts on this illuminator by illamasqua.



Review:
The illuminator comes in a rectangular slim twist tube , like a lipgloss , you might think the the quantity is so little but this pigmented highlighter goes a long way. It has a good color payoff. The reason i bought this is that its warm pink with a golden sheen which is why it blends in with my natural skin color flawlessly giving it a natural healthy glow,its a beautifully unique color. It also applies really smoothly , you have to rub it with your fingers as its a liquid. I dries really fast so if you dont blend it soon it will stain your cheek.The lasting power is disappointing and stays not more than 3 hours....though a primer may help. The price may put you off , its extremely expensive in my opinion. I like the slim packaging for i can always throw it in my purse when i go somewhere and its travel friendly though the applicator is a bit stiff.It doesnt accentuate pores as well. Over all its an average highlighter and didnt make me go crazy over it...You can use this on your cheeks , cheekbones , cupid's bow, eyelids , inner eye corners







Packaging : 2.5
Price: 2
Quality : 3
Quantity : 4
Overall: 3
Will i buy again? No

Pros:

  • Unique natural and beautiful colour
  • The slim tube
  • Quantity
  • Ease of use
Cons:
  • The applicator is weird and stiff , kind of useless and harsh against the skin
  • Extremely expensive for what it is
  • If not blended quickly stains your cheeks


This illuminator sells for 2750 at beauty unleashed on facebook or on the illamasqua website for 13 pounds

Hope this helped
take care

    1. Its somewhat close to it , like 60 % , the texture and effect counts too which is not exactly the same
