Make Up: Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme.

Up until two weeks ago my make up collection contained zero face highlighting products. For some reason they never appealed or I didn't quite see what all the fuss was about. That was until the Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme hit the bloggersphere and I instantly wanted to try it. I received this as a birthday gift and I am so, so happy that I finally got to see what all the fuss is about! It's completely worthy of all the hype.

Firstly, the shade is absolutely beautiful, I have Iced Gold & that pretty much describes it perfectly. Having never really dabbled in highlights before I was concerned that it would look overly icy or frosty on the skin but it actually looks really natural and gives you that beautiful healthy glowing from within look that I crave so much. I have mostly been concentrating this on the tops of my cheekbones which instantly brightens my whole complexion but it also looks stunning down the centre of the nose, on the cupids bow and a tiny amount on the forehead if you have a drier skin type like I do.

I was expecting this to be much creamier than it is, but having used this pretty much every single day since I got it I think the formula is perfect. It's not too dry and it's not too creamy but it's super smooth and lightweight so it blends beautifully into the skin and it doesn't slip & slide around. It stays put on my skin all day so it's one of those products that I adore because I don't have to worry about touch ups throughout the day.

I absolutely love the packaging, I really like that it's a round compact & it has a huge mirror inside which is perfect. It has that same rubber feel like the NARS packaging does, which means that it can get a bit tatty looking but that's nothing that a baby wipe doesn't sort out super quickly. There's something about the packaging that makes it feel like a luxury product, it's sleek looking and it just feels nice to hold. I don't know, I'm a bit of a packaging nerd I guess, but when you're paying a fair bit of money for a product, it's nice for it to have lovely packaging too.

This has fast become a staple in my make up routine, I reach for it every single day and because you really only need a small amount each time, I can see this lasting for a really long time. At £17 it's not super cheap but I also don't think it's really expensive. It's one of those products that is completely worth every single penny and I can see myself repurchasing this for as long as they make it!

Have you tried the Jemma Kidd Dewy Glow? What did you think of it?
What is your all time favourite highlighter? I think I've been bitten by the highlight bug & I'm excited to try more!

  6. It looks lovely on you! I've heard such good things about this highlighter and I really want to get it for myself! I was going to buy it the other day but simply the name iced gold put me off, I have fair skin and I'd have worried it would look too 'gold' on me, but it looks so natural on you I will have to buy it now! xx
