The No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter has featured on many blogs over the Summer, and following its success, No7 have created a new Bronzing Highlighter. Just like the standard highlighter, the No7 Instant Radiance Bronzing Highlighter is packaged within a pale gold, short, chunky plastic stick, with a wind up base. I was initially worried that the Bronzing Highlighter might be too dark for my pale skintone, but I needn’t have worried as it’s a really subtle gold shade rather than a bronze.
The highlighter has a cream consistency which is a dream to apply as you just simply swipe the stick across your cheekbones, and then blend with either your fingertips or a brush. I’d describe the highlighter as having a cream to powder finish, that’s lightweight on the skin without being sticky or shiny. The highlighter effect is really quite subtle once blended into the skin, with a beautiful golden shimmer without any glitter particles. Even on my pale skin, the finish is really natural, although you can create a more intense finish by layering it.
It’s such a pretty highlighter that would suit all skintones, so even if you have pale skin, don’t be put off just because it’s described as a bronzing highlighter as it’s definitely more golden rather than bronze. The consistency and finish is very similar to the Benefit Watts Up! Highlighter, so much so I’d describe it as being a dupe except this is a little more warm in tone. It’s such a beautiful highlighter that imparts a gorgeous glow to the skin. I’ve also enjoyed using a shadow brush to blend the highlighter all over my lids for a pretty, golden shimmer.. it’s such an easy product to apply, and I’d love to get my hands on the other shade.
