I like to keep my everyday makeup routine relatively simple, and normally don’t really bother with highlighting/contouring as I just can’t ever seem to get it to look right on me!  However, a few months ago I received the Topshop Glow Stick – and this has completely changed my opinion on highlighting!

The Topshop Glow Stick is described as a “light reflecting cream highlighter to sculpt, define and enhance the skin”.  The shade I own, ‘Play Up’ is a gorgeous champagne colour, similar to Benefit’s Watt’s Up cream highlighter, however this comes in at around £15 cheaper!  

What I love about the Topshop Glow Stick is just how easy it is to use!  As I previously mentioned, I find applying highlighter and contour to be quite challenging – however, this makes things so much easier!  You simply twist up the cream highlighter stick, gently apply it to the top of your cheekbones, blend it out with your fingers and you’re done.  It’s really easy and quick to blend into the skin too, and only takes a few seconds to apply.


The shade itself looks so natural on the skin, with no shimmery or glittery particles visible (as you can see in the photo, above).  The product is also very pigmented so a little goes a long way, and is also very long lasting on my skin.

I think it’s made such a big difference to my everyday makeup – you can see the Topshop Glow Stick in action in my recent Glowy Everyday Makeup post.

The Glow Stick is available from Topshop for £10, and is available in three different shades.  Shop here.
