This is just a really quick post so that my blog doesn't become completely desolate! Sorry for the lack of posts for *cough* the best part of the year, but university has really become my main priority. If you weren't already aware, 2017 was finally the year I put on my mortarboard and gown to walk down Canterbury cathedral halls to collect my degree (even if I did trip up over my heels). The final year of a bachelors degree is intense enough but unfortunately I spent a lot of my final year in and out of the hospital for a newly diagnosed illness - so as you can imagine I had barely any time for my beloved blog. After such a hard beginning to the year, the relief that I had actually managed to get my degree and with my new ability to drink in the US after my 21st birthday, I booked a few flights away with my friends and family and spent my summer in America and Spain (Can you say Sephora haul?!) to celebrate the end of an era. Honestly, I had real intentions of starting back up the 'highlighter series' when I got back but I actually decided to enroll onto a masters degree and that has been more intense than I could have expected. I've made new friends, joined netball (Me! Doing netball!!!!), joined a new cheerleading squad and learnt a lot. So in short, I've not been able to post in a long time! Honestly, I'm not sure when I will be back posting again, all I know is that I have a bag full of products that I keep meaning to review, a £11,000 masters degree worth of knowledge in Marketing, a new camera that I can't wait to play with and an empty blog page waiting for me to return. Blogging was something I once loved so I need to stop making excuses and pick my camera back up. I hope you can wait for me!

My favourite lashes ever?! Eylure 202's from falseeyelashes.co.uk REVIEW

Buy here for £6.99

If you haven't read my last review, please do! You can read that here and it'll give a lot more context to this review. Sorry that this review is a couple weeks late but university work and hospitals have taken over my life!


These Eylure 202 lashes were the other pair that falseeyelashes.co.uk sent me. These eyelashes are my favourite eyelashes ever, I've seriously been wearing these since I was around 14 and started wearing eyelashes every day, my boyfriend even knows about these! They're from the Eyelure's double lash range and are beautifully thick and black, the double lash creates an extremely wispy effect which I love. There's also a thick band which means they're super easy to apply and great for beginners.

Now, these are thick lashes; if you love drama then these are for you! These Eylure's are the perfect 'going out lash' as, even though they're thick, they're not too long which means you avoid looking like a drag queen (no shade). I like wearing these in photos as they're really noticeable, even from afar.

Eylure are consistently good across the board and they have so many different lashes for any occasion, all available via falseeyelashes.co.uk. As mentioned in my previous review, Eylure glue is my favourite and every pack of lashes comes with a tiny tube of it - I buy that many Eylure lashes that I've never had to buy a full tube!!

As I said, I've had a lot of experience with these babies and I know that every pair I've ever had (probably close to 100 pairs - no joke! Sorry bank account) has lasted around 10 wears - and that's with me being rough and not taking care of them properly. I find using latex glue helps extend the wear time as after each wear you can just peel the glue off, but if you have latex allergies or just generally dislike it I've heard washing the lash band in a tiny bit of water and makeup remover helps keep them from falling apart.

I hope you pick these up and I guarantee you'll fall in love with them like I have.

What are your favourite lashes? Have you ever tried these?

Blinking Beaute - Coquette Lashes from falseeyelashes.co.uk REVIEW

BUY HERE for £23.95
If you didn't already know this about me, I've been a false eyelash addict since I was around 13 or 14. For the entirety of my teenage years I would literally refuse to leave the house without a set of lashes on! When I went on tour with my university cheerleading squad last summer, we all got nicknames chosen for us and put onto tshirts - can you guess what mine was? Lashes! I'm that addicted. So when falseeyelashes.co.uk reached out to me about collabing how could I possibly say no?! Although this particular set of lashes were sent to me (and another... but wait until next week for that review!) I have used this company before with my own money so anything I say about this company is obviously 100% genuine... blablabla.

The main thing I have to say about this website is that there is sooooo much choice. It's great that there's a website available where you can buy all these different brands of lashes in one place - and with free 1st class delivery on all orders! Another plus is that you can get American brands easily in the UK. With both of my experiences with falseeyelashes.co.uk I have not been disappointed and beautiful lashes have been delivered to my door within a day or so of placing my order, I really can't find one fault about this company so go ahead and indulge in your wildest eyelash fantasies!

When the lovely Jodie from falseeyelashes.co.uk asked me what eyelashes I'd like her to send me I snapped up the chance to get another set of these gorgeous Blinking Beaute lashes. Although I've never tried the Coquette's before I was hopeful the quality would match the previous Blinking Beaute lashes I'd tried... and how could I resist that fluttery, textured finish? These gorgeous, flirty lashes are extremely black and thick but due to being silk you avoid the shiny, plasticy look of other thick lashes. On the website they're described as lashes that "provide all the glamour you need for a big night out or special occasion" but I say hell to that and I rock these through the day too! They are dramatic lashes but the sweeping, fluttery effect means they're 'natural' enough to wear through the day (or maybe I'm just crazy - I love a dramatic look, day or night!!!)

Photos pulled from falseeyelashes.co.uk

I gravitate towards my beloved Eylure glue (which thankfully comes with any set of Eylure lashes) over the DUO lash glue which seems to be most peoples favourite. It sounds silly, but the DUO glue is too sticky and I find that removing lashes that have been stuck down with DUO glue is difficult and I'm a tad conscious of pulling out any of my own lashes. The Eylure glue that I use contains latex which means I can peel the glue off my strip lashes after every use and that prolongs the wear but if you have a latex allergy Eylure do also make a latex-free version. Both types of the Eylure glue and the DUO glue are available to buy on falseeyelashes.co.uk.

As said, next week I'll be reviewing the other set of lashes that falseeyelashes.co.uk sent to me - so check back for that! What are your favourite type of lashes?

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Touch Eclat Blur Primer REVIEW

Buy here for £29.50
Yves Saint Laurent's newest primer is an addition to their fantastic Touche Eclat range and promises to illuminate the skin and blur any imperfections. At £29.50 for 30ml, YSL offer a translucent gel which helps provide a blank canvas to create the perfect complexion to instantly illuminate, visibily diminish pores, smooth skin texture and boost skin's natural luminosity.

As mentioned in my YSL beauty haul, I'm not usually a primer type of gal but the gold flecks and the pretty bottle pulled me into buying this. Not really having much experience with primers in the past, other than an awful one with Benefits porefessional which left me completely broken out and miserable, I didn't have much to compare this to, all I knew is that I should be wearing primer and that all the beauty bloggers do it, so I should too, right?

This baby is packed full of a thousand and one different types of oils that I can't pronounce, let alone try and attempt to spell, but that makes me think it's supposed to be hydrating. It feels very silicone-y but for some reason still very nice and my foundation just sticks to this bad boy as if it's made from super glue. I originally thought primers were just a load of rubbish and that they couldn't possibly elongate the wear time of your foundation but this sucker really does. My favourite long wearing foundation can go from lasting around 8 hours without touch ups to lasting 12 hours, possibly more (usually this is just when I have to take my foundation off, but I'm sure it would last a lot longer).

Besides this, I found the YSL blur primer also fills in my pores and actually 'blurred' my skin without feeling thick and gloopy. I was worried about adding an extra layer to my skin routine as I didn't want it to feel like I was wearing a second layer of thick foundation but I honestly cannot feel this on my skin, if anything my skin feels softer and more hydrated. Textured skin around my nose area is something I'm also slightly self conscious of and this primer helps immensely with that.

My only issue (if you can call it that) is the promise of luminosity as the gorgeous gold flecks seem to melt away once I apply this to my face and often I find myself (now that I'm a little bit more experienced with primers!!) reaching for a tiny drop of my Becca backlight primer to add to the mix just to satisfy that glow I'm after. However, this is more than likely due to my skin-tone being very gold-toned and the gold flecks not showing up all that well but hey-ho, the issue is easily fixed with something like Benefit's High-Beam or as said, Becca's Backlight primer.

I'd also like to add that I've noticed my skin texture has significantly improved since using this and I've suffered less breakouts, it's as if the primer has been treating my skin or almost been creating a barrier between my skin and any products I've been using. Yves Saint Laurent's Blur Primer is now one of my favourite primers ever, and yes, I have now tried a LOT more and I love it as much as the first day I used it! This is my third bottle I've gotten through and I'll continue buying it until they stop selling it!

What are your opinions? Is £30 too much for a primer?

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation REVIEW

I haven't really tried that much of Charlotte Tilbury's products before. I mean, they look gorgeous, but without actually popping them on my face it's a bit difficult to judge if they perform or not. This foundation had super good reviews and when I was having a girly weekend with my mum in London and had forgot my beloved Nars Luminous (I seriously need to find a new HG) I needed to pick up something to last me the weekend. The pastel pink box and rose gold lid was staring me down in Selfridges and I ended up picking the Magic foundation up from Charlotte Tilbury even though I didn't know all that much about it.

After getting home and doing a little bit more research on it, apparently this was 5 years in the making and promises a poreless complexion - which may be the reason why I don't get along with it because for some reason anything that promises a poreless complexion either breaks me out or just disagrees with my skin. It's such a shame this doesn't work for me because it really does look gorgeous and flawless as soon as you apply it but after about 3 or 4 hours wear it started to break apart and felt almost heavy on my skin. And, unfortunately, the next day I woke up with a few new pimples on my face.

The Magic foundation is definitely full coverage, which I like for a night out but not really for the day time, and reminds me a lot of the Estee Lauder Double Wear demi-matte finish. Dewy, luminous finishes are definitely my preference, but I will make a matte foundation work with luminous primers and highlighters if I love the formula of it. I found a sponge worked better with the thick formula of this foundation better than a brush, which just moved the product around and created a cake-y like texture, whereas the sponge helped absorb a lot of the excess product; but that may have been my mistake as you really do need a minuscule amount to make this foundation work.

I chose not to powder this foundation as much as I usually would as it does dry down quite a lot, but that really is down to personal preference.

On my yellow toned Mac NC35 skin I chose shade number 7 which was a perfect match, I believe Charlotte Tilbury has 12 different shades of this foundation, which is OK in my opinion but the darker end does need expanding as I think there's only 3 really dark shades.

Do I like this foundation? Uh, its OK. I still wear this from time to time, but I think since I bought it in early December I've only worn it about five or six times and I always pick other foundations over this. The formula is just too thick for me and unfortunately it broke me out, but if a matte, full coverage foundation is what you're looking for then this is probably going to suit you perfectly.

Have you tried this foundation before? What were your thoughts?

HIGHLIGHTER SERIES #5: Jeffree Star Skin Frosts - Regina George and Princess Cut REVIEW

UK readers buy here for £25.50
(My highlighter series is a series of reviews running through January and the beginning of Feb where I look at the most blogged about highlighters of 2016 and decide if they're worth it or not! I'm going to put up a highlighter series review every Monday.)

Let's be real here, what actually made me want to buy this product is the crazy pink Barbie packaging. I mean, it doesn't store very easily but it looks gorgeous in instagram posts! Another great thing about this packaging is that the mirror is huuuuuuge so when I'm carrying this around in my handbag, I don't need to carry around another compact mirror. There's been a bit of controversy around these as well, as it looks like you get a tonne of product (I mean you do, as you get 15g - compared to Becca champagne pop which is only 8g and £7 more) but people have been popping the pans out of the compact and showing how unbelievably thin the pan is. I mean, I haven't done this myself so I can't say for sure, but I just wanted to say that people have been complaining of these shattering easily because of the pans being stretched out so thin. (BUT if you've read my Becca champagne pop review which is linked below, you'll know that smashed and because I loved the formula of the product I wasn't overly bothered and didn't let it affect my review at all, so take that how you wish).

When I first heard Jeffree was releasing highlighters to go with his liquid lip line I think I peed myself a lil bit - I was so excited. Unfortunately, other things came up or other make up releases came out and I never ended up getting around to buying any of the Skin Frosts until this Black Friday release came about. I'd heard so many good reviews of these little (I mean... big...thin...who knows?) things so I thought chucking £50 (cry) at these would be a no-brainer, especially after watching his swatch video over on his youtuber channel where they looked unbelievably blinding. I mean, pink... glitter... highlighters??? Need I say more??? Could these skin frosts be any more of my aesthetic??? Admittedly Regina George is a bit out there, even for me, but I thought it would be a perfect blush topper for nights out and I could even use it as an eyeshadow. So, there I sat on Black Friday Evening, laptop and debit card at the ready... to make a huge flipping mistake.

I mean, they're OK. They're passable. If you dig your brush in the pan and scrape the top of the product off the compact with your nail then yeah, you're gonna get a bit of pigment, but do I want to spend 10 minutes ruining a highlighter just to get a patchy, crumbly mess on my cheek? Um, no thanks.

I think my issue with these is that I set my expectations too high. I'd seen all the beauty gurus who were, lets be honest here, either a) friends with Jeffree Star or b) sent PR packages of his products, giving great reviews of these and I'd believed every one of them (damn). I'm going to give the skin frosts one more try, I've seen a lot of people consistently using Ice Cold so perhaps that's a slightly different formula to those? Who knows. I'll keep you updated.

Run down of why I don't like these particular skin frosts:
Not that pigmented. I thought Jeffree was all about crazy pigmentation?
Princess Cut is stupidly patchy. A finger swatch is almost crumbly.
Stiff formula. If you've read my past reviews you know I like a smooth, buttery formula like Becca champange pop (OK, I'll shut up about Becca now).
Regina George has NO highligher-ness (great wording there Alex) but it is pretty much just a blusher with a few flaky specks of glitter that fall off your face in an hour or so wear time. There is no glow with this guy and forget any hopes of a glossy look. Did I get a bad one??

Are these Jeffree Star approved? Heck NO. Such gorgeous colours and thumbs up for being 100% vegan and cruelty free, too bad that the formula sucks. I'd hate to leave this blog post on a negative note, so I'm just going to say that his new palette looks pretty and I'm tempted........... but my bank account is screaming no after giving him my money for these dust collectors.

ALSO: I'm taking a short break from this highlighter series! I have a few other highlighters that I want to review but this was only supposed to be a January thing and I have some other make up goodies that need their time to shine. I've actually had companies and people email me about this series which is INSANE and I've really enjoyed creating it (duh, of course I have, highlighters are my thing). THE GLOW WILL BE BACK SOON but until then enjoy my palette and other make up goody reviews - every MONDAY at 6pm GMT. (I'm still gonna be on the hunt for that perfect golden glow tho...)

Have you tried any skin frosts? What shade did you try and what was your opinion?

HIGHLIGHTER SERIES #4: Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Champagne Pop REVIEW

Buy here for £32.
(Also - pleeeeeaaaase ignore the terrible photoshop in this photo :) I'll explain in the blog post ↓↓↓
Or if you follow my instagram @alyspace you'll already know there #shamlessselfpromo)
(My highlighter series is a series of reviews running through January and the beginning of Feb where I look at the most blogged about highlighters of 2016 and decide if they're worth it or not! I'm going to put up a highlighter series review every Monday.)

Champagne Pop. Is there much more to really say? It's a cult favourite. A blogger must-have. A make-up hoarder necessity. Now with the words 'Skin Perfector' in the title, this little compact has a lot to live up to but slap the gorgeous Jaclyn Hill's face on the packet and I'll pay good money to have even a small chance at it. At £32, this little baby isn't exactly drugstore so it took me a while to fork out the buck for this sucker.

This collection was originally labelled as limited edition, which I missed out on first time round, but was brought back due to popular demand. Usually I hate when companies do this! I'm a companies dream and will buy products purely because I'm scared they'll sell out and I won't have the chance to buy them again, so I get a bit annoyed when they're released again and I could have thought my purchase through a bit more. But, as I missed the first release of this I'm actually pretty happy they brought this back to their permanent collection.

Housed in Becca's traditional rubberized packaging, the highlighter is relatively safe from my clumsy hands. I say relatively because mine actually shattered after I dropped it on my bedroom's wooden floor *cue a tiny violin* hence my awful photoshoped image above. The packaging looks attractive and hard wearing but I think the product smashed due to the extremely soft texture of the product. Now, I actually adore the consistency of this highlighter; I love everything about the way it applies, the way it feels, the pigmentation it gives, the way all my brushes pick it up - so I think I'm going to just have to deal with being a bit more careful with not dropping it!

As said, this product is extremely soft to touch. It literally feels like dipping your finger into butter. When my pan was in one piece (sad face) I used a Sigma tapered highlighting brush and it was extremely pigmented, definitely a night time highlighter or for a glam #instagram look. If you like a blinding highlight then this is definitely the one for you.

Despite having a very dramatic glow, the colour is surprisingly 'natural-toned' or is so on my NC35 skin. If you've been following my highlighter series, you'll know that I've been on the hunt for a strong gold toned highlighter for what feels like ever, unfortunately Champagne Pop is not that highlighter. Luckily, CP is a gorgeous colour but I'd say it is rather a peachy pink than a gold and champagne probably being the perfect colour name for it so well done Jaclyn on the perfect name - did that sound condescending?

Champagne Pop did not necessarily accentuate any pores more so than any of my other highlighters, nor is it necessarily that glittery, but I wouldn't say it's a glossy-look highlighter like L'Oreal's True Match Powder Illuminator (another fav!) either. Wear time is nice, lasting all day with primer and a decent foundation underneath (usually my fav Nars All Day Luminious). Champagne Pop has risen to number one spot on my top fav highlighter list, purely due its amazing pigmentation and buttery smoothness. I adore this product and NEED all the other Becca highlighters now. What are your opinions?

Pigmentation is AH-MAZING
Soooooo smooth and buttery, my brushes pick this product up so effortlessly
Gorgeous, versatile colour for any skin type - even dark skinned gals could rock it (would be quite daring tho)
Not too glittery
Ma fav highlighter eva. Just buy it and you'll see what all the fuss is about. Seriously.

Did smash easily
Can't do a natural look with this one! It's all or nothing! (Not a problem for me - but might be for you!)
Doesn't give a glossy look. (I need to drop it with this glossy-look thing.)

If you're looking for a show stopper then look no further because Champagne Pop is truly blinding. Warning: these products aren't for the faint hearted!

HIGHLIGHTER SERIES #3: Laura Geller Gelato Swirl Illuminator - Gilded Honey REVIEW

Buy here for £21.
(My highlighter series is a series of reviews running through January and the beginning of Feb where I look at the most blogged about highlighters of 2016 and decide if they're worth it or not! I'm going to put up a highlighter series review every Monday.)

Recently I've been after that perfect 'golden glow' for my NC35 skin but my skin tone is at that awkward in-between colour where shades are either too light that they don't give a golden look or it just looks like I've shoved bronzer on my cheekbones. Laura Geller's Gilded Honey is a typical 'Instagram Made Me Buy It' product, after seeing all these girls with similar skin tones to me rocking that perfect golden highlight while wearing this highlighter I had to pick it up to see if it was really worth the hype. I love glitter as much as the next make-up obsessed girl but sometimes you just want a glossy-look highlighter instead, and that was exactly what I was hoping from the pictures I'd seen on instagram.

I have to admit, despite this highlight promising a whole lot and costing not too much (£21) it took me quite a while to buy it. I think it was due to the poor, cheap looking packaging. The flimsy, plastic lid reminds me of a cheap product from the drugstore that I'd pick up for around a fiver and when I'm paying over £20 for a single product, I kind of expect decent packaging - or at least something that looks like it's going to last being thrown around in my handbag. However, Cult Beauty offer a 15% off code for new customers YOU15 (I just open a new account every time - oopsie) so I picked it up using that and I felt a little less guilty.

Gilded Honey provides a very luminous glow to the skin once applied, but unfortunately the colour payoff just isn't there. I suppose this doesn't necessarily have to be a negative thing for a highlighter, it just depends what you're looking for but for me who's looking for a true golden glow, I was disappointed that there wasn't a stronger colour payoff. As expected, this really isn't a glittery highlighter and as I'm all about that glossy look at the minute I was impressed with the luminosity of this highlighter and I still wear it often, despite the lack of colour pigmentation.

Gilded Honey is soft to the touch, but not as buttery as Becca's highlighter's, and I find it best applied with a tapered highlighting brush or stippling brush. I'm yet to try applying it with my fingers but I've heard that works well also. Wear time is nice, lasting throughout the day and due to the lack of glitter this product did not accentuate my pores.

Overall this is a nice product, but not mind blowing and not up-there with my top fav's. Do you need this product? Not really. Is it a nice addition to a make up lovers collection? Yeah, and because it's so small you can easily put it in your make up bag if you need to take it travelling. I recently took this highlighter on a trip to Vienna with me and I survived using just this for a week!

My tips are;
If you can get it discounted on Cult Beauty - do so!
If you can't afford to get both, get Becca's Champagne Pop instead. They're in the similar colour family but Champagne Pop is so much more gorgeous.
Layer it up!!!!!!

Do you own this highlighter? If so, what are your thoughts?

HIGHLIGHTER SERIES #2: Nars Albatross Highlighting Blush Review

Buy here for £23! (Remember - Asos do student discount!)
(My highlighter series is a series of reviews running through January and the beginning of Feb where I look at the most blogged about highlighters of 2016 and decide if they're worth it or not! I'm going to put up a highlighter series review every Monday.)

Althought Nars Albatross isn't necessarily a 2016 cult beauty favourite, it's been a highlighter that I've been eyeing up for years now. I love Nars blushes (Orgasm being a cult favourite and one of my personal all time favourite blushers) due to their intense pigmentation and butter-like consistency. Now if you're into really glittery highlighters, then you may want to give this one a miss, but if you're more into the glossy look then keep on reading.

The stark white pan looks quite intense; I showed my mum whose a similar skin tone to me (mac NC35) and she recoiled and said it was far too bright and out-there for her. But with a light hand it can look so pretty and give a natural, luminous glow from within. Due to my really strong warm undertones the gold undertones running through Albatross really suit my skin and I just can't put this highlighter down. You can't really see the yellow in the pan, but it really is there and is definitely gold on the cheek.

After recently trying Jeffree Star's Princess Cut Skin Frost (review soon!) I was really happy to find that the texture of this was a lot smoother and very soft, a lot similar to Becca's Champagne Pop (one of my favourites). It's strongly pigmented and you can build up quite an intense glow if that's what you like, but as previously said you can also keep it quite natural as well. The wear time is nice, with it lasting around 6 hours on my oily skin (on top of primer and foundation). I use this for nights out because I love the intensity I can create, and because I have so many natural highlighters that don't get much of a look in any other time, but if you can only afford one then I really recommend considering this!

Albatross was actually a bargain for me, ASOS have recently introduced their rewards system where you get ASOS vouchers for spending money on their site! I pay for premium (£10 for a years worth of next day delivery - so worth it!) so I end up spending quite a bit of money on ASOS and without even realising I had a £20 voucher sitting in my account. ASOS also let you use your student discount alongside the voucher! So including delivery, this highlighter only ending up costing me 70 PENCE. Can I say bargain any louder?!?!?!

Obviously for 70p, this is a no brainer and a million percent worth it, but even at the full retail price of £23 I think this is a good highlighter which I'd buy again. Other than my beloved Becca Champagne Pop, this is definitely up there as one of my new favourites. Have you tried this before? What do you think of Nars highlighters?

HIGHLIGHTER SERIES #1: Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette Review

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know about my highlighter series running all through January (and if you don't know about my instagram you should go follow me on @alyspace ) but for those who don't, I'm posting a highlighter review every Monday throughout January where I'm going to be looking at the cult favourites of 2016! A recent buy for me, and a long overdue purchase, is the Sleek Solstice highlighting palette, which is the review that's going to kick off this series.

The palette includes 4 different shades; 3 powders and 1 cream. They are all relatively cool-toned shades, which is not usually my thing on my yellow toned skin, but it surprisingly works with this palette. Here's a quick look at the colours!

Ecliptic: is the only cream shade in this palette. It looks very purpley in the pan but is surpsingly more of a champagne colour. I don't actually reach for it all that much, just because I feel like I have more pigmented cream highlighters from Jouer that suit my skin tone better, but by no means is this a bad cream highlight. It's pigmented and creates more of glow-from-within look rather than a glittery streak on your cheekbones.
Hemisphere: is a purple lavender colour with a very luminous glow. I wouldn't wear this every day but it's lovely to play around with, or to apply very lightly just for a subtle cool-toned glow. Colourpop's Hippo or ABH's Purple Horseshoe are very similar.
Subsolar: is an extremely light yellow highlight. It verges on being gold whilst still being quite a cool-toned colour. I really like this shade and it's extremely pigmented. I found this was the only highlight in the bunch that accentuated my pores somewhat, which is disappointing, but it's still pretty nonetheless.
Equinox: is the warmest in the palette. Equinox is a copper/peach colour with an almost metallic finish. This is my favourite shade in the palette and I've been wearing it almost every day! I would pay the full price of this palette for this shade alone.

For £9.99 at your local Boots or Superdrug, this is a no-brainer. Even if only one shade worked, it's still only £10 for a beautiuflly pigmented highlighter - so the fact that you get 4 is amazing! I can see why this was in everyone's favourite videos this year and I've already bought the other two shades (oops!). Verdict? DO NOT HESITATE. DROP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND PICK THIS UP. RIGHT. NOW.

What do you think about this palette if you have it? Or are you going to pick it up? :)
