Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polished

I think that there's a slice of the audience which is absolutely sick of hearing about contour and highlight – I understand, everything's been overused in the media. I admit that I also have times when I simply cannot take a look at any cheek product but if you know anything about me it's that my make-up is always wearable. I rarely step into the realms of artistic make-up expression as my lifestyle doesn't give me any time to stop and play with make-up. It all mostly comes down to fast application, multipurpose products and simple looks. I think that every highlighting and/or contour product I own is pretty much tame and even though such products rarely photograph as stunning visuals – in real life they do look fabulous! I'm all about enhancing the natural look and texture of the skin and this following highlighter does just that. In fact, this is my first make-up item from the brand but it probably won't be the last one because I really ended up loving it! Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polished (approx £8 via feelunique.com) is the most recent addition to my highlighting/ illuminating arsenal and the continuation of my love towards cream cheek products. It's funny how I go back and forth with cream make-up but the Essence creamy highlighter and blush got me back into the saddle. I was eyeing the Topshop offering for months and this April I decided to take the plunge – so glad that I have!

Vec mogu reci da je dijelu auditorijuma preko glave price o konturisanju i iluminiranju lica – razumijem jer su mediji zaista pretjerali sa eksponiranjem tih tema. Priznati cu i da nekada bude dana kada ne zelim vidjeti nikakav proizvod koji se nanosi iznad, na niti ispod jagodica ali ako znate nesto o meni to je da je moja kompletna sminka vise nego nosiva i prirodnog izgleda. Rijetko kada cu zakoraciti na teritoriju umjetnickog izrazavanja putem sminke ponajvise zbog toga sto mi nacin zivota uopste ne ostavlja slobodnog vremena kada bih se mogla poigrati sa sminkom na taj nacin. U mom slucaju ce se sve svoditi na brzo nanosenje, multiprakticnost i jednostavnost. Ubijedjena sam da je svaki proizvod za iluminiranje i/ili konturiranje iz moje postavke dosta njezan te, iako rijetko kada tako umjerena kozmetika izgleda upecatljivo na fotografijama – u stvarnosti je uistinu prekrasna i ostavlja divan dojam. Najvise sam fokusirana na isticanje, uljepsavanje i usavrsavanje prirodnog izgleda same koze a hajlajter o kojem cu pisati u nastavku to cini na najbolji moguci nacin. Ustvari, ovaj hajlajter je prvi kozmeticki komad ovog brenda no sigurno nece biti posljednji jer sam se zaljubila u njega! Topshop Glow hajlajter u nijansi Polished (kupljen za cca 22KM preko feelunique.com) najnoviji je dodatak mojoj kolekciji arsenala za iluminiranje koze i nastavak moje ljubavne price sa kremastom kozmetikom za obrascice. Zanimljivo je kako konstantno idem naprijed pa nazad kada je u pitanju kremasti make-up ali su me Essence kremasti hajlajter i rumenilo ponovo zainteresovali za njega. Ovaj Topshop hajlajter sam mjerkala mjesecima i pocetkom aprila sam se odlucila da se napokon njime pocastim – sada mi je drago sto jesam!

Packaging is simple yet eye-catching. I think that Topshop has successfully created a visual identity and their make-up is easily recognizable thanks to the black writing of a specific font on the white background. Glow highlighters come in a glass pot which truly alleviates worth of the product inside. Much, much better than any plastic pot – well done Topshop! The glass pot is compact, fits any and every bag and/or make-up storage. You ‘only’ get 4g of product but the minute you swatch it you realize those 4g will last you a lifetime – pigmentation is out of this world! Topshop Glow highlighters come in two shades – Gleam (bronzey shade) and Polished (pearlescent pale pink/champagne shade). I think I'll pick up Gleam come summer but Polished is exactly what I prefer – not too warm in tone yet it catches the light as if you were walking under a pool of sunshine. I love how creamy it is but it feels like a cream/mousse hybrid and its pigmentation and longevity are amazing (has no scent whatsoever)! It lasts an entire day on my face and you need just a tiny touch to highlight the brow bone, cheekbones, cupid bow, the bridge of the nose etc. It can be sheered out to a completely natural, believable and soft glow or you can build it up but I wouldn't as I appreciate how daywear-friendly it is. It looks more natural than theBalm's Mary Lou yet it's more noticeable than the Essence Soo Glow! illuminator. It isn't glittery but it does contain very finely milled shimmer particles which blend seamlessly into the skin and are almost unnoticeable. I prefer to apply this highlighter with my clean fingers as the warmth of the skin additionally melts the texture and makes it perfect to work with. I really love this highlighter, it's exactly what I look for and want in such a product and I honestly recommend it. I'm looking forward to purchasing Gleam as I'm sure it would look stunning with a tan.

Pakovanje je jednostavno ali i lijepo. Mislim da je Topshop uspio izgraditi vizuelni identitet i njihova je kozmetika prepoznatljivog dizajna zahvaljujuci crnim slovima i bjelicastoj pozadini te specificnom fontu slova. Glow hajlajteri dolaze upakovani u maloj posudici od mutnog stakla i samo taj detalj cini da kupac ima osjecaj kao da drzi dosta skuplji komad kozmetike. Staklo je neuporedivo bolja opcija od plastike i zaista bravo na tome za Topshop! Staklenka je kompaktna, zbog malenih dimenzija stati ce u svaku torbu, neseser ili organizer za kozmetiku. Unutar nje cete dobiti ‘samo’ 4g proizvoda no onog trenutka kada napravite swatch – shvatiti cete da ce ta 4g da budu nepotrosiva – pigmentacija je vanserijski dobra! Topshop Glow hajlajteri su dostupni u dvije nijanse – Gleam (bronzana nijansa) i Polished (blijedo ruzicasta/boja sampanjca sa bisernim odsjajem). Mislim da cu sebi nabaviti Gleam za ljeto dok je Polished sve ono sto volim – nije previse toplog podtona a opet prekrasno ‘hvata’ svjetlost na kozi koja kao da je okupana ispod snopa suncevih zraka. Divna mi je kremasta formulacija koju bih cak opisala kao hibrid izmedju krem i pjenaste teksture. Pigmentacija i trajnost su izvrsni (hajlajter takodjer nema nikakav izrazen miris)! Na mojoj kozi se zadrzava cijeli dan i potrebno je bas malo kolicinski kako bih naglasila bilo luk ispod obrva, jagodice, usne, nos itd. Formulacija je zahvalna i mozete hajlajter da ‘razvucete’ i time dobijete izuzetno prirodan, uvjerljiv i mekan efekat no takodjer ga mozete intenzivirati sto licno ne bih radila jer mnogo cijenim tu prirodnost koju vjerno kreira na kozi. Izgleda prirodnije od theBalm-ovog Mary Loua a ipak je primjetniji od Essence Soo Glow! iluminatora. Ne sadrzi sljokice ali sadrzi shimmer koji je nevjerovatno fin i sicusan te se stopi sa kozom te je uopsteno divne teksture. Najvise volim nanositi ovaj hajlajter cistim prstima jer toplina koze dodatno omeksa teksturu i blendanje bude vise nego uspjesno. Zaista mi se dopao ovaj hajlajter, nisam pozalila kupovinu jer je sve sto bih ocekivala od jednog takvog proizvoda i od mene ce uvijek dobiti toplu preporuku. Radujem se kupovini nijanse Gleam za koju vjerujem da ce izgledati carobno uz osuncan ten.
