REVIEW || NATURAL COLLECTION HIGHLIGHTING STICK IN SHADE ROSE GLOW



The obsession over testing out one brand at a time has taken over the blogging world, and I couldn't help but notice that Natural Collection has come out with a new line of products. Obviously, I got the new products, but the one I want to focus on today is their highlighting stick!


I'm no stranger when it comes to strobing and highlighting, I honestly go all out! I'm currently obsessed with the Makeup Revolution highlighters - they're seriously so good.


I got the shade "Rose Glow" which I think is the perfect shade for my skin tone as I've got warm pink undertones. The packaging is quite basic, I don't like it very much and it's a lot like the ELF all rounder stick. However, it only cost £1.99 so I didn't expect much. I was hoping for it to have more product though as it is quite small.


As you can see the colour is very pinky gold, kind of like champagne pop by Becca. I do love this colour, I think it'll suit all skin tones as it's not too light and not too dark - quite universal.


This swatch just proves my point, look at the pigment! It's absolutely beautiful and easy to blend. The only issue I did have with it is that too much product applies with the lightest swatch! So it's best to apply it with a brush or a beauty blender.


Here's a swatch of the highlighter blended into my skin, so you can see that it's quite warm but still very shiny - yes please! I do want to try the other shades from the collection, but I need to get more wear out of this one first! 

Have you tried Natural Collection's new highlighters? If so, which one did you pick up?

Lots of love,
