Illamasqua: my brand first impressions

OMG: The review

I’ve been lusting over this highlighter for what feels like forever. But at £34, I was struggling to part with my hard earned cash! But thanks to good ‘ol Santa, I’ve finally got my mitts on it! Read on to find out my review…

It’s called OMG for a reason.

After I few finger swabs in Debenhams, I already knew how pigmented this highlighter was. So I couldn’t wait to see how the product would apply to my face, and I wasn’t disappointed! It’s unbelievably pigmented and so so pretty. I mention all the time how much I love highlighters in champagne hues. ‘Cause champagne shades can be applied for a subtle shine, but are also really buildable at the same time.
I use Hoola bronzer by Benefit for my contour. And OMG really compliments the bronzer and blends well. I know £34 does seem like a lot of money for one highlighter, but I’ve been assured it literally last years! So if you fall in love with a shade as much as I have, it’s basically an investment, right?

I applied the highlighter using a finishing brush, to my cheekbones, tip of my nose, and a little just above my top lip. For extra sparkle, apply to your brow line.
