Bloggers #Christmasbeautybrawl16 Day 3

I hope you are enjoying this beauty collaboration led by Beth of La Blog Beaute  If you wish to know more about it please read my introduction for full details of what it is and who’s involved.
Day 3 and our remit for today is to review a highlighter. This was the most tricky for me as I initially thought it was a sculpting product and I have very strong views about sculpting for the mature woman. I have said before it’s not a good look you only have to look at Liz McDonald in Coronation Street to see that!

But then I thought again and decided that what I use as a highlighter is a shimmer brick. The first one I used in this category was Bobbi Browns but at £33 it is a luxury. Now I’m retired I like to look for cheaper alternatives. To this end I am reviewing Boots Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick in pink bronze.

I apply this to my cheekbones, nose, brow and chin just to give a soft glow. I liked this product and the colours suited my pale colouring. I found it comparable to other high end products including the one by Bobbi Brown.
My scores are:

Packaging: 90/100 Nice compact – sturdy and simple.

Price: 100/100 at around £3.99 it’s fabulous value and I will continue to use this. A new favourite.
Product: 95/100 Lovely block of 4 shades of pink. Lovely subtle sheen, applies well and lasts. Gives a natural healthy glow.

Thank you for reading today’s review – I hope you come back tomorrow. In the meantime pop over to Victoria’s blog to see her choice of highlighter to review.
