Product of the Week: Inglot Face & Body Illuminator

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 31 - 2011

I picked this up at the start of the week from the Inglot store in Westfield.  I was impressed with the super-fluid texture that I knew would combine nicely with my foundation.  I tend to use liquid highlighters to give a boost of radiance to my foundations rather than as ‘spot’ highlighters.

There are a few colour options available, I didn’t take not of exactly how many… but something like 6?  I chose the pale gold which looks remarkably yellow.  Infact, truth be told… I didn’t choose it.  The SA told me I should choose it over the two that I was contemplating (a white/silver and a rose gold).  I was unsure because this really is pale GOLD gold.  She argued that it would tone down the pink-tones in my skin for a more even complexion.

Yeah, that sold it.

I’ve been mixing a single pump into my foundation before applying and I really like it.  It’s not glittery but gives a nice amount of radiance to my complexion.  I also agree that I’d been steered toward a good colour choice… it doesn’t give me a more neutral-toned complexion but it compliments what is already there without exacerbating the pink undertone.

I can’t find my receipt but I think it was around £11, a bargain compared to similar products like the Armani Fluid Sheers (love those too).

Do you mix highlighter in with your foundation?

    I mis Benefit Moonbeam in if I’m using a super matte foundation like Revlon Colour stay. It just helps it look a little bit more like skin. This looks gorgeous! x

  2. This looks lovely! I love that it can counter your pink undertones.

    I’m also very pale and pink-toned … I’ve come to realize that I don’t actually want anything to make me look MORE pink! I mean, it sounds dumb, but realizing that I don’t want to add more red to an already too-red complexion was a major turning point in terms of how good my makeup looks. (I’ll still use blush to add “focus” to my cheeks, but I prefer foundations and highlighters that are more neutral or even seem kinda yellow rather than those that match my pinkness. I’m not pink all over my body, just my face, so when I go more yellow, I look more even-colored, less red-faced, and generally more natural. Go figure!)

    The SA was right. Looks like she has great taste :)
