review - no7 skin illuminator

with my £5 off voucher from Boots, i bought this skin illuminator. i've always wanted to try one, and had my eye on benefit's high beam, but i thought this would be a great tester and practise before i spend big bucks!

there are two tones available and i got the PINK, the over option is PEACH.

it's packaged in a box and comes in a tube/brush format. to turn the brush on you rotate the tube neck onto the 'on' posistion, fairly simple. you squeeze the tube and the product comes out, beware, it comes out at a fast speed! to turn off you simply rotate round to the 'off' posistion.

i don't really like the brush it comes with, i find it's a little on the large size when it comes to face illuminators, so i like to use a concealer brush (a no7 one i also purchased with the voucher!) then dab it onto the areas to higlight, then use my finger to blend.

overall i really liked this product! first time i used it was when i also wore revlon's photoready foundation, which already gives off a dewy, glowy effect, so i couldn't really tell the impact. then i wore it with my every day foundation (clinque's anti blemish solutions liquid foundation) to see if it really did give off a glow and highlight my face, and it did. i'm very glad i bought this!
♥ it!
