Let’s just take a minute shall we, to admire the beauty of the Topshop highlighter in Crescent Moon. Ready? Let’s begin. Highlighting is a new found love of mine, sure I’ve had highlighters in the past – who hasn’t had a sample of Benefit’s High Beam thrust upon them at some point or other but I’ve never had a highlighter as pretty as Crescent Moon. It’s hard to describe the colour, it’s quite pearly but with hints of pink and gold too, it’s so flattering on pale skintones though rather unlike it’s sister Sunbeam which is a very yellowy gold colour that would look ridiculous on my face. The powder is smooth and easy to apply and there is no chunky glitter in there, it just adds a lovely sheen to the tops of your cheekbones/cupid’s bow/brow bone. It’s really easy to blend into the skin too, and works seamlessly with some of my blushes and contour shades.
It was really hard to get a photograph of it on my face, but as soon as I manage it I will update you all with how beautiful it looks. In the meantime, hop along to Topshop to swatch it for yourself – you won’t regret it!
