Review: No 7 Limited Edition Powder Highlighter

Hello crumpets :)

Absolutely ages ago, well... April, I snapped up this cute little item from Cosmetic Candy's blog sale. I've been using it quite a bit, and thought I'd review it for you :) Even if it is an LE item and no longer available muahahaha.


Cute packaging, yes?

I've used this a lot - you can barely tell!

No 7 say: Put the romance back into your beauty this season, with this powder-soft, whisper-light highlighter.

I say: I have to say, when I opened this for the first time, I wasn't quite expecting the powder to look so... foundation like? I think this is because it's a pressed powder. I was expecting to see more shimmer, but I think that's because a while back I saw the latest LE highlighter and it looked substantially different to this one. As you can see in the above photos, there's a cute flower design on the powder that matches the lid. It's rather lovely.  It blends nicely leaving a lovely subtle highlight. Overall, I was impressed with this product..


The compact features a handy mirror and a brush

Swatch *flash*

No 7 say: Lightly dust onto your face, body and décolleté for skin that looks lit from within. 

I say: I use this to highlight the tops of my cheekbones, and the brush provided does a perfect job. I swipe the brush across the highlighter, then brush across the tops of my cheekbones and a little way up the temple to help give some definition. I then blend it in and I'm left with a gorgeous, subtle highlight that is noticeable where the light catches my face.

Price: Haven't got a clue but I paid about £7 for it
Size: Not a clue o.O
Available from: Well, nowhere but I'd keep your eye out for any similar items!

Product: 10/10
Price: 10/10 (Shhh I know it was a blog sale)
Packaging: 10/10
Overall: 10/10
Repurchase: If I ever run out of this (it's looking unlikely folks, I've used it a lot and not even made a dent in it!) then I'd see if No 7 have anything similar in their permanent line.

Has anybody else got this highlighter? Or own another one by No 7? What do you think?
