Highlighting and contouring are all the rage right now and with so many products to choose from we can all be our own expert at perfecting the contoured look.
This month Rimmel have released several star products to add to their ever growing, ever amazing range. I've got three products to swatch and road test - Brow This Way Highlighting Pencil, Good to Glow Highlighter and Kate Sculpting Highlighter Palette.
Brow This Way Highlighting Pencil
Brow This Way Highlighting Pencil is a creamy pencil that glides on the brow bone easily for added impact through its soft gold shimmer illumination. Even though it says it's for the brow, it can be used in other areas of the face you want to highlight. Apart from the brow bone I've also applied it on the side of my nose and jowl lines.
I love pencil/chubby stick highlighters because they are super quick and easy to use. They are creamier making it easier to blend. The highlighting pencil comes in two shades, Pink Matte and Gold Shimmer. The one pictured above is in Gold Shimmer. I also love this colour it perfectly suits my olive skin.
Good To Glow
The Rimmel London is Good to Glow is an instant, buildable liquid illuminator and highlighter. Available in two different shades in Australia, 001 Notting Hill Glow, 003 Soho Glow. There is a third one but it wasn't released in Australia, it is 002 Piccadilly Glow. Colour shown and swatch is 001 Notting Hill.
It contains light reflecting pigments to give skin that radiant luminous look, that looks natural without being too overly shimmery. The texture is super lightweight making it comfortable to wear all day.
It can be worn on its own to emphasise the high points of the face/decolletage or mixed with foundation/moisturiser to create an all over glow.
There are no rules on where you should apply. Experimenting is the fun part. I applied it on the bridge of my nose, above my lip and along my cheekbones. It's lightweight texture blends effortlessly creating a long lasting glow that livens up any look.
Rimmel Kate Sculpting Highlighter Palette
Another fab collab with Kate Moss. The Kate Sculpting Highlighter Palette is available in Coral Glow. Again, three shade options to choose from overseas, 001 Golden Sands, 002 Coral Glow and 003 Golden Bronze. Colour pallete shown and swatched is Coral Glow.
The palette comes with a highlight, contour and blush shade. The highlight shade is a subtle champagne with a yellowy undertone and a subtle soft shimmer, perfect to highlight the cheek bone, brow bone, forehead, centre of chin and bridge of the nose.
The contour shade is a warm shimmery brown. The blush a is a matte coral pink which is nicely pigmented giving good colour and definition.
On the back of the palette there are easy to follow instructions on how to use the palette. The palette is flattering and foolproof to use especially for a novice like me, so go easy and just build your colour until it's what you want.
