Cream Highlighter Collection

My highlighter collection is predominantly creams; it's probably the natural sheen from the cream mixed with the iridescent glow of the shimmer that draws me in. It has the ability to provide a natural lit from within effect, whilst still looking extraordinaryly beautiful. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again (until I find something better) topshop highlighters are hands down the best cream highlighters on the highstreet. Particularly the Topshop glow pot - not only is the glass pot luxurious (yet not practical in the slightest)  the product itself is a perfectly irredecent cream that effortlessly blends into the skin, giving an almost wet look finish. 
The Topshop glow stick gives a similar finish but with more of a cream to powder formula, making it a brilliant slap and dash product. 

The ELF all over face stick was concidered a dupe of the nars multiples, which initially drew me in. The shade persimmon is a pinky beige cream although unlike the topshop highlighter stick, it doesn't set. The formula itself is quite thick, making it impossible to wear over foundation, however it works beautifully when applied on top of tinted moisturisers and bb creams. The all over face stick is absolutely tiny, perfect for throwing it into your bag for on the go application and touch ups. 

Another affordable cream highlight I love comes from essence, a brand I believe is only sold in wilko stores. The so glow highlighter is a cream-to-powder formula that feels completely weightless on the skin. Whilst it does have a rather obvious shimmer, the shade 'Bright up your life' does exactly what it says on the tin, this particular shade would look beautiful on paler complexions. 

A slightly different type of highlighter in my collection comes from Burberry, the fresh glow nude radiance luminous fluid base (and breathe...) it's a water based 'primer'. It doesn't exactly make foundation adhere to it, it simply lifts a sallow complexion making any foundation you apply over the top luminous. You can also mix it in with your foundation or apply it over the top exactly where you want a strobe like glow. If you're not a fan if glitter, then this might not be the best product for you, whilst it's not chunky there is obvious glitter.
