Before I start with the review, I want to ask those who've shopped at Eyeko before, have they raised their prices slightly? Last time I was on Eyeko, the cream was I believe $8USD - now its $9USD? Also, I believe their Fat Blam use to be $5USD and now its $8USD? Correct me on that? Or maybe I just haven't been on the site for a while my eyes are playing tricks on me, lol.

This is going to be a fairly quick review. To me, not all highlighters work for all skin types and skin tones. I'll be talking about which of these highlighters works better for me and why. I'll start with The Body Shop. The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter goes for $14USD and you get 25ML (.84FL OZ.) - which is the same size as the Skin Primer Matte It.

I like the fact that this highlighter comes in a squeeze tube so I can control the amount I want. It's very light on the skin and as you spread the product around, there's just a slight cooling sensation (but I don't know if it's just me). This is a pearly pink highlighter, but the pink disappears as the product is spread on the skin and you're left with a sheer champagne glow. This highlighter is said to be universal and can be used on all skin types and skin tones. Though, I honestly feel that if you're a bit tanned, sometimes this can look not ashy - but, all you see is silver shimmer. The only way I've made this work for me is mixing a tiny bit of it with my moisturizer and this gives my entire face a healthy sheen (which I like) without looking like I have silver shimmer on my face.

This is a sample of Eyeko's 3in1 cream that Lane was kind enough to send me for my birthday. This cream comes in a tub and retails for about £7($9USD). The site didn't say how much you get, but I'm positive you get more than what The Body Shop offers. Since this is a cream, it has a slightly thicker consistency, but it still feels light on the skin. It gives a nice glow to the entire face without looking obvious and it works nicely mixed with your moisturizer as well. I like the fact that this cream is sort of multi-dimensional - there's champagne shimmers, but theres also some golden shimmers/undertones mixed in it as well - which means us warmer skin-toned girls would look lovely with this on. I don't know if this makes sense, but to me, this is like MAC's Triple Fusion MSF in a cream form - with no chunky glitter, lol.

Swatches - like the primer, The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter is like a gel form and its a shame my camera didn't catch the golden flecks from the Eyeko cream because it looks so pretty. I'm sorry if the two highlighters look identical, haha. I'd recommend The Body Shop for fair to medium skin toned girls and the Eyeko cream for girls who have more golden to olive toned skin only because its more flattering.


The Body Shop has something similar to the Radiant Highlighter called Tinted Glow Moisturizer (I think), and that has golden tones to it which I prefer more - at the same price and size. I only bought the Radiant Highlighter because there were so many reviews on it and I was curious to try it out. I've only used The Body Shop highlighter about 2-3 times, so its like brand new. I think I'll add this to my upcoming mini giveaway as a bonus. Thank you for reading and viewing. Hope you all have a nice day!


  1. Aww... I was about to send you a sample of the cream lol

    I absolutely hate it with a passion haha!

    By the way, read my blog on the neutrogena review.

  2. I'm looking around for highlighters so your review was very much appreciated!!! Now, how am I going to get my mitts on the Eyeko cream? Or should I get the Tinted Glow Moisturizer?

  3. oopsss... atelier gal, i had no idea u were gonna send dee tat cream...

    eyeko is really fantastic right dee! I think u are right though, they did increase their price. i bought it a few months back so I can't remember the exact px but it does seem more exp.

    anyhow,I use it as a base, highlighter and it works perfect. one tub can last a lifetime for me...

  4. - Ateliergal ;
    I've read it and you're so sweet! I want to send you a few things too, so maybe we can chat through email.

  5. - Blair ;
    Hmm, that's a hard one. I honestly think that with your complexion any one of them would work, lol. Let me go comment your blog real quick, lol.

    I know, I went on YT to look at some reviews and the tub looked huge! Yeah, I thought the prices might've been raised. But its still affordable compared to what others are selling their's for and the amount you get. So its still a pretty good deal. I can't wait to pick myself up a full sized one!

  7. i'm thinking about buying the radiant highlighter but i can't seem to find any reviews on it other than yours >_<
    do you know where they had reviews on this? cause you wrote that you saw a lot >___<

    thank you. it'd really help a lot
