Highlighting BAES with Iconic London

Yes guys, it’s another highlighter post. I never get sick of them! Also it’s technically my job to test them for you, so…. go figure!! Iconic London is a brand that has stormed across the UK and splashed my instagram feed with so much Rose Gold and highlight envy. This brand gives me all the heart eyed emojis and it’s not hard to see why..

I was superly (is that even a word?!) excited to try these bad boys illuminators. Liquid highlighters are THE summer staple in my opinion. I mean are you even a highlighting Queen if you dont own these? Iconic London very kindly sent me these three shades and I have been loving using them! Bascially I just want to bathe in them all day long.

There are three gorgeous shades:

  • Original – Champagne Toned
  • Shine – Pink Shimmer
  • Glow – Terracotta Shimmer

You could say each shade caters to a different skintone, so Original would be perfect for pale tones, Shine for medium, and Glow for Dark. I’m not about sticking to the rules though and I use all three. I mix them together, blend them and highlight my face to the max! Who doesn’t want maximum impact right? I have tanned hard this Summer, so a combination of the three shades actually works very well for me.

As always, these illuminators can be used in many ways:

  • Highlight
  • Browbone Highlight
  • Mixed with BB Cream or Moisturiser
  • Wear it alone with primer
  • Wear it over or under your foundation
  • Use as a body highlight
  • Use to accentuate collarbones
  • Can be used a eyeshadow
  • Mix with your lipstick to give a metallic finish

I think a product like this is always great to have as a staple in your kit because it works in so any different ways, and if you like to experiment, these liquid illuminators are the one.

The product is housed in a matt glass bottle and the applicator is a dropper which pumps out the product. It’s easy to control the amount of product that comes out – because believe me you don’t want to be wasting any! This is liquid metal at it’s finest and the colours certainly pack a punch!

You get 10ml of product in each bottle and a little goes a long way – this will last you ages!

I love the intense shimmer these give off and it really does feel like Summer in a bottle! There are many different ways to apply this with. A few of my favourites are:

  • Apply using a Beauty Blender
  • Apply using an angled brush
  • Use fingers to apply
  • Use an Oval Brush (thin one) to apply
  • Use an Eyeshadow Blending Brush

So many variations – it’s all about finding what works best for you. You can purchase these gorgeous highlighters right here.
