Illamasqua - Gleam Highlighter in Aurora ♥

Hello beauties. 

I wanted to share with you my gorgeous new highlighter I purchased from Illamasqua. I have always been a fan of Illamasqua I love the look of all their products and just the ethic of the company in general, while I'm singing Illamasqua's praises can I just add their customer loyalty scheme is amazing, on your 3rd order and every order made after your 3rd you receive 10% off all products how brilliant is that? Such a lovely touch. Anyway I must get on and introduce to you the beautiful Aurora….

Aurora is a gorgeous champagne coloured highlighter. It is a solid cream compact with a beautiful iridescent finish. Apologies about my messy finger prints in the compact as soon as I opened it I needed to try it and then I remembered about ze blog ohhhh dear Blogger fail at its best please forgive me :) 

This is how Aurora is described on the Illamasqua website: Back by popular demand, and with a new and improved formula, Gleam's lightweight, iridescent finish sensuously highlights the natural beauty of your face and body. A solid, cream compact, containing lustrous pearlescent pigments. Smooth Aurora (champagne iridescent) over skin with fingers or a brush for an alluring glow that lifts and highlights wherever it's applied. This is light-reflecting beauty.

I couldn't agree more it truly does lift the face and provides such a beautiful highlight to any areas you want to accentuate. I have always loved a good highlighter but tend to always stick to powder highlighters as I just thought they were easier to use but I have been converted. This just blends so effortlessly in to the skin and leaves such a natural dewy finish. I have very very dry skin so often struggle to create a dewy finish but with this is so easy and the results are just stunning. I apply this using my fingers, on my cheekbones, nose and cupids bow. I have been using this beauty on all of my clients recently and they have also loved the results. Aurora retails for £18 on the Illamasqua website which for a high end make-up brand is a steal :). 

Below is a picture of Aurora blended in to my hand, you can see just on my hand how beautifully it highlights and catches the light. 

The first picture is of me wearing Aurora and you can instantly see the highlight along my cheekbones, the second picture is of some make-up I did recently again using Aurora to highlight.
