I'm such a highlighter fanatic. You can bet anything that promises a "healthy, luminous glow", my wallet would say, "Hello!". Boots NO.7 High Lights Illuminating Lotion has become one of my favorite highlighters to date.

What I like most of about this highlighter is that it comes with a pump. The only issue that I have is that this is meant to be "travel friendly" but the bottle is made of glass - no bueno. Also on occasion, there can be some product build-up in the nozzle causing clogs to happen. So if you're not careful, tons of product can squeeze out and you waste product. When this happens, I usually do little short pumps then scrape out the excess dried product to clean out the nozzle.
Now, before purchasing this, I did read a few reviews and some have said that this made them look like a walking disco ball. Unless you use a thick strip on your cheek or quarter-sized amount mixed with your foundation, all is well.
This is not sheer at all so less is definitely more. This pale, pearly, pink-beige highlighter - when used with a light hand, gives a lovely glow to the skin. There are no visible chunks of glitter, the shimmer is very fine and blends well on the skin. When I use this, I get compliments of how dewy and healthy my skin looks. I have also used this on clients and they love it as well. This is a nice alternative to Benefit's High Beam and its definitely worth to check out.
I recommend this to those with normal to combination skin. Those with a dry skin type might want to use a good moisturizer before applying this as it can accentuate dry areas. What's your favorite highlighter? I love finding out about new goodies!
