Seventeen Skin Wow Highlighter Review

Highlighters are something i have only started to use properly over the past 6 months or so. I guess i was a little scared to use them as i didn't want to apply too much and look extra shiny! Now i have to admit contouring and highlighting is definitely my favourite part of my makeup routine. This is where the Seventeen Skin Wow Primer/Highlighter comes into the mix. 

What is it? Well it is actually advertised as a primer not a highlighter. I have learnt this product can be used many ways. I first tried it as a highlight across my cheekbones and fell in love. The texture is very creamy and easy to blend. You need to be careful not to apply too much as it spreads really well. I have also tried it as a primer before applying foundation and it gives a subtle glow to my skin, if you don't want a full glowy look then apply this as a primer but use a flat top buffing brush. Lastly i also tried mixing it in with my liquid foundation and loved the result. It left my skin glowing without feeling oily.

With having oily skin i did worry mixing this in with foundation or using it as a primer might make my skin more oily. If i apply a small amount it feels lovely on my skin and doesn't make my oily skin worse at all! No matter what skin type you have this product will work well. 

It retails in Boots for £5.99 which i think is really good considering you get a decent size bottle. I also love the fact it comes with a pump for easy application. Seventeen have really upped their game over the past year!

Have you tried this product?

  3. Such a gorgeous glow! I too worry about mixing liquid highlighters or glowy primers with my foundation because I'm also oily so this kinds of recommendations always are welcome!
