Review - Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Highlighter (Rose illumination)

When Michele (@MicheleBell21) mentioned a rose gold highlighter on Instagram last week I was sold, sign me up to anything related to the shade rose gold. I do have a slight addiction to highlighters anyway so I did not have to be too persuaded to induldge in this Elizabeth Arden product.

After a quick google search the best price I could find was £19.55 with free delivery from www.feelunique.com It arrived a few days later and I have not been disapointed with my purchase.

In a beautiful rose gold round compact the powder is a joy to put on, very easy to apply...no harsh streaks and no glitter. Staying power was great too, it kept a consistent shade on my cheekbones and did not go patchy which seems to happen with many powder highlighters I use.





At first I thought this might be the powder sister to Jemma Kidds cream highlighter in 'Rose Gold'(left) but as you can see below they are quite different...pink tones are definitely more evident in the Elizabeth Arden product (right).


I will get much use out of the hightlighter too...it worked lovely as a eyeshadow, on my cupids bow but also on my decolletage. Looking forward to wearing this throughout the Summer but as it is not in-your-face highlighter wearing it in the Autumn and Winter will be a must.

Have A Great Weekend!
