The world has gone highlight crazy (yes!!) and much to my delight there are a whole host of products out there ready to give you that radiant, dewy complexion and the perfect stroke of light. Here’s a look at the Sleek Barekissed Illuminator line up. There are 4 sumptuous shades to choose from and I have them here swatched for you.

The textures are beautifully creamy and they melt elegantly into the skin. Monaco is a simple yet super effective highlight for my skin tone, but if I want to add a nuance of colour, the peachy tones of Cuba are just perfect, although it contains a little hint of glitter that Monaco doesn’t have. They are each very buildable so you can go for a very subtle glow or really intensify the effect if you want to make a bit more of a statement.

I am yet to try them as an eyeshadow base – but I really like the sound of that! I definitely want more radiant eye lids!

The Sleek Barekissed Illuminators are £9.99 each. Boots are currently doing 2 for £10 on Sleek so shop via the links below.

  1. I was looking forward to these but when I swatched some of them in store I first thought the texture was very nice, but blending the heap of product that comes out with one pump is quite the task (waste of product imo) and when I left the store my hand basically resembled Edward Cullen in the sunlight. I found them way too glittery for being subtle, even Monaco – the shimmer was not as chunky as in Cuba but still very prominent, I mean “light reflecting pigments”, yeah, that.
