Topshop Glow Stick in Play up

My favourite highlighter, possibly of all time, is only £10 and from Topshop. One of the only products I finish and repurchase consistently. Glow Stick in Play Up contains no hint of glitter. It sinks into skin and looks like it belongs there, giving that elusive lit from within glow. I use this in almost every look I create. On its own it's subtle, dewy and easily blended but it is also the perfect base for a powder such a MAC's mineralize in Lightscapade, which is easily layered on top for an extreme light bouncing effect. The nude tone suits fair to medium skin tones with no hint of a greyish cast, it looks beautiful on anyone between an NC/NW10 to NC/NW35. The stick packaging is so simple to use and the perfect size for hitting the cupids bow, collar bones, cheek bones and bridge of the nose... and for the inner corner of the eye I dab it on with my pinky finger. The natural luminosity this product creates I find is perfect for enlivening complexions for which you have had to use a higher level of coverage. It kind of breathes life into skin and can make a made up face have the kind of healthy sheen that reads like bare skin. I panicked slightly when this shade was not listed on the website and I feared it had gone the way of Topshop's other excellent product, the cheek jellys, and been discontinued. False alarm its back now but I will be buying several to hoard just in case.
