Lottie London: Shimmer Squad Highlighting Palette

 

As a girl who frequently wanders into Superdrug on a regular basis ‘just for a look’, there’s always  going to be a time where I come out with a new makeup product or two.
The last scenario: Walking in, ending up at the Lottie London makeup section and seeing this highlighting palette for £9.95 that I just couldn’t resist picking up.

The palette has four shades that are universal for a range of skin tones.

Lightest to Darkest: The Trouble Maker, The Good Girl, Queen Bee, The Flirt 

The Troublemaker: An icy white shade – perfect for fairer complexions (like myself).

The Good Girl: A true light champagne shade – perfect for fair/medium skin tones.

The Queen Bee: A light yellow gold – perfect for medium skin tones.

The Flirt: A golden bronze shade – perfect for deeper skin tones.

Upon first impressions, the texture of these powders were very soft and easy to blend onto the skin – with intense pigment from the get-go.

The Troublemaker – on my skin

If you’re like me, a lover of an intense, can be seen from mars kind of highlight, then this is the palette for you. The powders can be used on the face, eyes and even the body for a beautiful glowy look – meaning no matter what your skin tone, you will get use out of all of these shades.

My skin tends to get oily in my t-zone during the day, but the rest is usually very dry. However, this didn’t matter for this palette, the smooth texture of the powders meant that they glided over my skin, leaving it looking like a smooth glow, not scaly, patchy and textured like some others in my collection can. It also didn’t look too greasy or slide off when my oils came through during the day, it stayed put and was still looking perfectly smooth from putting it on at 9am to when I took it off at 9pm!

There one thing to note, these powders do have glitter in them, however, it doesn’t come across chunky or too glittery in any way, it just gives an extra bit of sparkle to the highlight when applied to the face.

Overall, I love this product and think it’s going to be my go-to highlight now over my Sleek Solstice palette (yes, it’s that good!).

I would recommend you run out and get it before everyone realises how good this inexpensive drugstore gem is, and it sells out everywhere (I can see it happening). You can get it on the Superdrug website here.

Have you tried this palette? What were your thoughts on it? Let me know!

Until next time,

Welcome to my blog!

Hello, hola, bonjour (that’s about as many variations of hello I know) I like to keep introductions short and sweet, so I won’t drag this out too long.

My name is Courtnie. I’m a 20 year old Journalism student from Sunderland, with a tendency to talk about music and makeup a little too much… so I thought I’d turn my rambling into something useful. Ta-da! Here it is.

Heres to you getting to know about my lifelong obsession with highlighter and gigs.

Until next time,
