My Fave Highlighter of 2016- Becca and Hourglass

Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good highlight! It started back in 2015 with my love for the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow and is continuing years later with Hourglass and Becca!  I don’t own a tonne of them but I do own 5 highlighters which I switch between on a daily basis. Most recently though I made the splurge to try two highlighters that the beauty world puts in very high regard -Hourglass Ambient Iridescent Strobe Lighting Powder and Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Champagne Pop.


Hourglass Ambient Iridescent Strobe Lighting Powder – I fell in love with this highlighter when I saw it on display. There are four colours to choose from but I chose Iridescent Strobe Light which is “an illuminating pink powder imparting a soft highlight”.The collection is a stunning sheer base highlight with micro pearl particles which gives a natural highlight to the skin. I also love how this can be used wet or dry depending on how intense you want your highlight to be. Even when I have found myself to have gone a tinsy bit overboard I still come out looking okay.


Becca Champagne Pop – This was the most raved about highlight of 2016 and I can see why! I love the colour of Champagne pop as it is a highlighter with peachy pinky undertones which I think goes perfectly with my skintone. The quality is incredible and the colour pay off is insane, a little really does go a long way with this product.  The product promises to “Find refined luminosity in any light. This bestselling formula is enriched with ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light so your natural radiance is never lost.” and it definitely delivers – there is no unnecessary chunky glitter and light reflects of the skin beautifully throughout the day. This is definitely a long lasting highlighter – it is one of the few things left on my face by the end of the day!

    I have just got the hourglass palette so not sure what the highlight in it is called. But I love it anyway. So subtle but light reflecting. I really want to try Becca so many people rave about it. Xx
