Iconic London Illuminator Drops
The highlighter comes in 3 different colours- shine, original and glow. Shine is a pale pink shimmery colour which adds a pearly glow. This is ideal for fair skin. Original is a gorgeous champagne colour which adds a golden shine. It is ideal for medium skin tones. Glow is a terracotta toned shimmer which adds a deep golden shine. Glow is perfect for darker skin colours. The packaging is really classy and pretty. They each feel and look like pots of gold, once you use it, you’ll see its not so far off.
These 3 Illuminating Drops are the most pigmented highlighters around. They give you the most amazing shine, one that you could have only dreamt about before. The highlighter gives your face a beautiful, dewy finish. You can add it to primer, foundation, moisturiser or you can apply it alone. You can apply it either before your makeup to create a dewy base, or you can apply it as a regular highlighter.
How to Apply
Since the Illuminator Drops come in a liquid form it can be a bit tricky to apply. If you apply it directly to the face you risk putting too much on or ruining your makeup (if you’ve already applied makeup). I recommend applying a drop to the back of your hand and then with your fingers dab on to the desired areas. You can then blend it out with a beauty blender or a brush. One drop goes a really long way, personally I wouldn’t use more than a quarter of a drop for each cheekbone. Yup, the highlight is that strong and pigmented. One tip I have for when applying is to blend it out straight away as the highlight dries really quickly.
What does it look like on?
It looks truly glowing on. You can blend it for 10 minutes straight and it still won’t look sheer like most highlighters do after a while. It looks beautiful and dewy. However, even though it looks dewy it feels dry and matte, almost as if you’re not wearing anything. What really stuck out to me is that when you apply it, it doesn’t remove or interfere with your blush or any other products that you have already applied. It’s really annoying when products don’t work together. However, no need to worry because this highlighter works really well with the rest of your makeup.
