FEELING PRESTIGE......


Right so I am going to tell you all the truth..... I have had these products since May, and they were still in their packaging until last week. This was not because I thought of them as awful products, rather I am a makeup obsessed human being, who has too many highlighters, and can never decide which one to use. I guess that these kind of fell to the back of my highlight drawer, and were for a moment forgotten!

(Glam tan, Pure shimmer)
I was having a sort out and found them... I immediately tried Glamtan.... and let me tell you I love it! Not only for the name. This highlight has a warmth to it that I have never experienced before. This would be the perfect highlight for complementing contoured cheeks. These products would best be compared to MAC's MSF's. I know I hear you say.... 'Not another wannabe MSF!' Don't dismiss these quite yet though. I am about to say something shocking!............. I personally feel that the texture of these is more consistent than the MSF. I adore the MSF's but I have to admit that the texture of them is never quite the same, some are great, and some are so freaking full of chunky glitter that you end up looking like a bloody disco ball. (rant over) These however have the same great texture, finely milled highlight... and no glitter in sight! There are three of these, and after trying these two I will definitely be buying the third.
The second one I have is called Pure Shimmer, another lovely name. This does exactly as it says; it gives you a pure, glowing highlight. This is comparable to MAC's By Candlelight. So if you couldn't get your hands on it recently here is a dupe.

You can find these products in most larger boots, for the bargain price of.................wait for it!..............................£8.99. Now that is £10 less than an MSF! or £22 cheaper than Dior Amber Diamond! This really is such an amazing price for a mineral highlight, of such excellent pigmentation, finely milled sparkle, and amazingly smooth texture. These are not just a recommendation but a must have for anyone interested in makeup. See if you can get them during a boots offer.... they seem to have them all the time! 3for2 would make these products even better value! What more could you ask for! Apart from.... Oliver style..... Please Prestige can you make some more?

  7. These highlighters by Revlon look amazing! I am definitely going to try one next time I go to the drugstore. I love that they are an affordable option for everybody who does not want to spend the money on the MAC mineralize skinfinishes.
