Glowing On A Budget♥*


Liquid highlighters I adore; how about stick highlighters? I was mega intrigued by these three from Natural Collection* - a blush, bronze and highlight shade, although the blush and bronze shades could be used as highlighters on darker skin tones (and would look gorgeous!)

I was curious to how a stick highlighter would work. How do I apply it? How do I blend it? What if it looks unblended? No need to panic. They are pretty simple to apply, blend and glow with. I swipe some on my cheekbones then use the bottom of my damp beauty sponge (from Primark) to blend it out, look less harsh and help it look more natural. I wouldn't suggest using the bronzer colour for contouring on pale skin because its on the shimmery side and is slightly too warm toned too.


Coral Glow; this is such a beautiful pink and gives the appearance of "natural, flushed and rosy cheeks". It has a hint of shimmer through it which gives a healthy and radiant look. It has a creamy texture which blends effortlessly with a damp makeup sponge. A little goes a long way for this product (as with all the other sticks too) - it's super pigmented.

Rose Glow; Perhaps my favourite of the three. It is an absolutely stunning highlight shade which compliments my skin tone ever so well. It's a unique shade too - I don't have anything else like it. I noticed that it's quite a cool toned highlight also, definitely not on the gold side. Basically it's stunning, shimmery and you need it!

Copper Glow; I reckon it's more ideal for bronzing rather than contouring as it is more on the warm side. It gives a sunkissed glow to make you look as though you've just stepped off the plane after a holiday abroad for a week. Although it is quite shimmery so a little amount is all that's required - don't want to go Oompa Loompa style!

For £1.99, I don't see why these shouldn't be in your makeup collection. I know that some people wouldn't like these due to being quite shimmery but as I have said previously, a little goes a long way.

Have you tried these highlighting sticks? Did you like them?

  19. I haven't seen these! To be honest Natural Collection don't appeal to me, though I did love one of their blushers. It's the only thing I've tried from them because I find that a lot of their products are too light for my skin tone. The price point however is insane!

  20. I am not really sure if I like highlighting sticks, I am just more used to powder ones. I haven't tried them, but I had a few blushes in this from and wasn't a fan ;)
