Topshop Glow Stick Highlighter in Play Up Review

Hi guys!

I’ve not shopped at Topshop for makeup in a while but when I went in last week there was so much I wanted to buy! One of the products that caught my attention was the Glow Stick highlighter in the shade Play Up.

This is a cream highlighter in a twist up stick form which makes it super easy to apply and no need for any messy sharpening. It gives a gorgeous champagne, golden glow to the skin without being glittery or sparkly at all making it look that much more natural. It reminds me of Benefits Watts Up which has a similar texture but is just slightly darker in colour and at £10 the Glow Stick is a much cheaper alternative. I found it super easy to blend and the staying power is impressive, even with it being a cream based product it lasted well through a long day at work which is always the main test for me with makeup products.

I’m a huge fan of the Topshop highlighters in general and really like both the Sunbeam and Crescent Moon ones but unfortunately I think both have now been discontinued. This is definitely a good alternative though and I can see I will be using it a lot in my daily makeup routine.

Have you tried the Topshop Glow Stick highlighter? Which are your favourite Topshop makeup products?

Thanks for reading,

  1. The swatch is soooo pretty! I've never tried TopShop makeup but have read really good reviews on them. Will keep this highlighter in mind if I come across TopShop. xx
