Topshop Glow Highlighter in 'Polish' Review


Hi guys. On Friday, I popped into my local Topshop in aid of treating myself to a little something after having quite a shoddy week. I was intending on buying an item of clothing but nothing really caught my eye or was in my budget. So, after standing deliberating over all of the lovely products at the make-up stand for about 10 minutes, I ended up walking away £9.00 poorer but with this gorgeous Topshop highlighter in my hand!

Topshop's 'Glow' comes in two different colours; Polish, (a pearly white) and Gleam (a glittery gold.) I opted for Polish as I decided that it would definitely suit my skin tone better and I imagine that Gleam would look better on darker skin tones. I only got into using a highlighter in the later part of last year and up until now, I have been using Soap & Glory's 'Glow All Out' (which you can read my review on here.) However, the main difference between these two products is that 'Glow All Out' is a powder whereas 'Polish' is cream based.

 I was amazed by just how luminous the product was when I first swatched it on the back of my hand and I knew that had to have it! As soon as I got home, I applied the product onto the tops of my cheekbones and I was still just as impressed. The creamy consistency made it so easy to blend and I was left with lovely, luminous glow to my skin. It catches the light really well and I do think that it take any make-up look to the next level. I can only imagine how radiant and glowy it will make my skin look in the summer when it is nice and sunny outside!

The only thing that I would say is that I did not find this highlighter is not subtle. So, I would probably stick to using at at night time for clubbing and so on, rather than during the daytime as it could be a bit too much. The only other downside to this product is that I can imagine it to be rather troublesome to get out of the pot when you are running low and there is less product in there but I guess time will tell with that one!

Overall, this is a lovely little highlighter which does not cost you an arm and a leg. This is actually the first ever make-up item that I have ever bought from Topshop and I am thoroughly impressed, so I am sure that I will be buying more items from them in the future. I would love to know your thoughts on the Topshop range and if you have any product recommendations, so please leave me a comment below if you have any suggestions for me! Thank you :)
