The Highlighter Series #5 – Illamasqua Illuminator in Halcyon

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 27 - 2010

I love this packaging!  It allows me to dispense just the right amount of product.

And *what* a product it is…

Illamasqua‘s Halcyon Illuminator is a creamy ivory highlighter that would suit both dark and pale tones beautifully.  It’s just about neutral enough to be kind to most complexions and imparts a “lit from within” shimmer.

With a smooth texture, it blends effortlessly wherever it’s placed.  This is (if you haven’t already noticed!) one of my favourite highlighters in my collection and I reach for it often.  Which reminds me, next time I’m near a counter I need to pick up Poised (it’s cool pink counterpart!)

Priced at £13, I consider this to be good value for money when you realise just how little you need to use to achieve a great result.

Illamasqua’s Illuminator in Halcyon is available from counters nationwide or online.

    Gorgeous! I love the finish of this product but to be honest I don’t really know how I would use it…any tips?

  5. Jenni says:

    So sorry but is it a highlighter? An eyeshadow? Like Touche Eclat???

    i like the look of the packaging though i am not sure how to use it as a highlighter (on cheeks?). i prefer powered ones i guess. the colour looks very shiny and gold so i guess a little of that cream goes a long way, eh? it looks too much unless it’s an eye shadow i think.

  7. Lillian says:

    I have 2 of them but not this colour and now i thin i need it. Beautiful!

  8. That’s beautiful! It works so well against your skin tone. Next time I’m in Selfridges I’m definitely going to take a peep.

    After months of reading your blog (it’s first on my favourites list!) I’ve finally taken the plunge and started my own. If anyone fancies taking a peak, please let me know what you think. I only started it yesterday, so please be kind!

    i’d say you’d use this on top of cheekbones or on your cupid’s bow or the bridge of your nose.
    I bought nars the multiple in Luxor at Xmas but it rubs my makeup off. i hate it

    That looks really nice, and £13 seems to be really good value for Illamasqua. I might try it! Thanks for the review 🙂
