Do you ever feel like you need a little extra something special to brighten your skin? Look no further than Eyeko’s Cream with Extra Glow.
This product is billed as a highlighter, moisturizer (I really need to start using an “s” instead of a “z”, as per the British way) and eye cream. I beg to differ with two of those statements, but you can get glowy…
I would say this is a really good highlighter but would make a terrible moisturizer or eye cream.
First off the product isn’t exactly moisturizing. In fact it’s a little on the dry side. And quite frankly I’m not so sure I want my entire face glowing like a disco ball. I exaggerate, but you get my meaning.
As for using on the eye area I would avoid that as well. Adding something super shimmery and light around your eye is only going to draw attention to any dark circles, bags, fine lines, etc. that you might have, and who wants that?
The key to using this is as a highlighter in a small amount.
The areas where I apply this is on my cheek bone above my blush and then on my temples. It’s nice because when you turn your head and the areas catch light, you can see it, but it’s not glaringly obvious.
You can see it’s pretty bright and “glowy” when it’s unblended. It’s not very pink looking once it’s blended in, but it’s definitely a cool, icy kind of look.
Once you blend it in, it’s fairly subtle. Something to note is that because the product is on the dry side (at least on my skin) it does take a tiny bit of work to blend it in so you don’t see obvious lines of where you placed it.
I recommend it if you aren’t already using another similar cool-toned highlighter. I prefer Benefit’s High Beam just because I like the bottle better and it blends a lot easier. This is a huge amount of product though, so cost-wise it’s a good deal.
Do you use a highlighter and if so, which is your favorite one?
