Illamasqua Illuminator in Glimmer

Illamasqua are fast becoming one of my favourite brands. I love everything they stand for, the amazing quality of their products, and the fantastic, imaginative colours that they incorporate into everyday products. I also love how you can achieve a neutral everyday look, or you can go wild and theatrical with some of the weird and wonderful shades available. A good all rounder I'd say.

In their recent sale, Illamasqua had some amazing products and I could all ready hear my bank account
crying in the background. I picked up quite a few items, two of them being their Illuminators. The shade that I'm going to be showing you today is Glimmer but I did also pick up another in the shade Fondle, which I shall be sharing with you soon.

First, the packaging is so simple but is actually pretty great. With it's squared shape and clear plastic appearance, it's not too dissimilar to a lipgloss, and it makes it easy to see what shade you are picking up when it's in your collection. The casing is also a solid plastic which makes it great for travelling purposes as it's not going to bend and split in your bag. The applicator is a small, sturdy brush which makes application easy and precise, and picks up just the right amount of product.

On to the shade, Glimmer is a beautiful warm, golden tan which really warms up my complexion. It is packed full of shimmer but when applied it doesn't look over the top which is definitely a bonus. I like to apply this to the tops of my cheekbones when I have applied some bronzer. Once blended out this gives the most natural sunkissed look I have ever had without actually having a tan. I have also used this on my eyes and it looks beautiful, so it really is a multi-use product.

I love this product and it just shows why Illamasqua are fast making their way to the top of my favourites. I would definitely recommend this product if your looking something that is easy and effective, but with the best quality.
This is currently available on the Illamasqua sale here, for £5.00 with an RRP of £13.50.
