Topshop Highlight in Crescent Moon

Okay, this is very much not one of my 30 Things, but I was getting a bit sick of talking about myself all the time, & missed blathering on about make up!

Since leaving college to come home for summer, I have also massively missed Topshop in St Stephen's Green (and it's only been a week!) So I decided to bring out one of my favourite highlighters. Crescent Moon is a pearly, champagne powder highlighter, with finely milled shimmer.


The packaging is cute, like all Topshop packaging - A sturdy white plastic case covered in hand-drawn stars. Some people may think it looks cheap, but I like it! It contains a nice 6.5g of product, & seeing as I've been using it for a good year now.. It will last forever.

You can see it on the left of my face, where the light hits it!

The colour is more pink-toned, but it's quite in the middle (a little bit silvery), so suits a range of skin tones. Pigmentation is strong, so you only need a light application - I apply to my cheeks using my NIMA Brush Dome Blush Brush, & use a Stila #9 All Over Blending Brush for my brow bone, cupid's bow, etc.

The wear time isn't amazing, but it lasts a standard day (about 10 hours).It's easy to re-apply anyway! My one issue is pricing - It's £10 in the UK, but more like €15 here. Which annoys me, but the product is still decent.

What highlighters do you recommend?

  1. I hate when the Irish priced are jacked up! I've been looking at this though, looks lovely on you! I'm obsessed with illuminating products at the moment!

  2. It's really pretty on you Chloe, suits your skintone to a tee. Revlon have some really nice ones but I'm not sure if they're old or new, I got mine in Cara Pharmacy ages ago in a sale! Topshop are great but they're a disaster for the dodgy exchange rates x

  3. This looks great on your skin. I prefer a sunkissed look & normally wear Chanel Soleil De Tan illuminating fluid. It may sound expensive but it lasts for ages!
    Would love you to check out my latest outfit post:)
    Have a fab weekend Hun xoxo
