Happy Sunday everyone :) Weather is treating us worse for wear this weekend but I love to give myself a little something to keep me going and what's better to brighten up your day than a bit of strong strobing game going on :)

I recently made a little order from Cult Beauty (check them out here) and what grabbed my attention is a little holiday mini set from BECCA :) Glow on the go is a duo of cream and pressed highlighters. I chose mine in Opal :) Opal is one of the most coveted highlighters from BECCA and as I heard so much goodness about it, I just couldn't say no.
Set came packaged in a small box, which I had a problem opening (yes, me and boxes do not play together too well lol). Inside you will find mini Spotlight (cream) and Pressed highlighters. I really enjoy mini versions of makeup products, as I rarely use up all the standard size and they go out of date :). Set costs £20 so you save yourself a £10 from a full size pressed Opal and you get to try both cream and powder version. It's a win for me :)
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlights Opal is a gorgeous golden champagne highlight. Cream is intense and super easy to blend leaving you with glowing complexion. I love cream highlighters as I either add them to my base primer or underneath my foundation to the high points of the face. I tried it on top of foundation as well and it looks beautiful. I rarely powder down my face these days as I like the wet skin look so I opt for cream products more and this one is a hit for me. It reminds me a little of Benefit High Beam in formula, not the colour. Applicator is a standard something you will find in most of concealers so easy to use. I recommend blending out with fingers by gently tapping over your foundation, or with a brush if you use it underneath. You get 5g of the product in the set.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Opal is a cute little powder highlight. It goes on slightly darker than cream version, just by a tone though. It has the most gorgeous golden sheen to it and it blends beautifully on the skin. I set the cream highlight with it for the extra wow strobing effect. Use it to highlight your inner corners as well. Absolutely stunning formula glides on easily to a highly polished look. Packaging is so compact, which makes it a perfect travelling companion. You get 2.4g of the product.
To sum up, I can't fault this duo. I find the packaging to be of a good quality and expensive looking. They are a perfect addition to your makeup bag. Off to work/school or for a weekend away? Finally a mini product that takes less space. I can't leave a house without my highlight. I find it makes me look radiant and healthy. Colour itself changes slightly depending on the lighting and gives you the luminosity, that's hard to beat. I am forever in love with The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer but this one just stolen my heart as well. I think I need to try the Jaclyn Hill shade now so I'm off to hunt the internet world for it as it's not available in UK :(. The set gets 5* from me !!
What do you think ladies? Are you as obsessed with highlighters as I am? Has this mini duo stolen your hearts as well? You can buy it from Cult Beauty here :) Let me know your thoughts and I will see you here on Tuesday :)
