Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold Highlighter Review

This was one of those things where as soon as the email popped into my inbox, I have a secret penchant for highlighters and just need to own anything sparkly... Must have been a bower bird in a past life.... 
This is a gold based, glitter flecked highlighter, and the only highlighter I own like it. It is intensely pigmented, and the glitter in it is very finely milled and thus creates a shimmery look to the cheek. You can create different looks depending on how heavy handed you are with the brush, although as it has a considerable amount of glitter in it I tend to use it more for nighttime looks, or if I don't have much colour on my face- it looks fab with jet black eyeliner. I also think it looks nice as a wash over your eyelid for a pretty day-time look. 

I have to say I am pretty disappointed with the packaging, online it looks like a gold bar but in reality it is a bronze cardboard box. It does use a magnet to keep the box shut but Im not convinced this would last if you were to take it travelling very often. It is quite different from the packaging of her other products so I'm not sure why they have gone down such a cheap route for the highlighter- particularly given the name! 

You can get this online for £30 from
