Review: No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter

The No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter caused a bit of a stir in the blogging world when it was released and as a result it was always out of stock when I went to purchase it. I finally got my hands on it not too long ago - but was it worth it?


The No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter comes in a round, compact tube, housing the cream highlighting stick inside, which also has a rounded end for direct application. It is designed to create "the illusion of younger, dewy skin" on the cheeks, brow bones, centre of the nose and cupid's bow. The highlighter is a shimmery nude with a very subtle pink tone to it, which should make it suitable for a range of skintones. It retails at £9.95 but can be bought cheaper if No7 have one of their money off makeup and skincare vouchers available.

I get on really well with the No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter, mainly because it is so easy, quick and simple to use. The stick is for me the perfect size for bringing radiance to the cheekbones, which is the only place I tend to use it; it's not too thick nor too thin. I simply swipe it lightly across my cheekbones for a subtle glow, which is especially lovely on those bright, sunny days, then soften out the edges a little with my finger. The formula isn't the creamiest I've come across, which may be due to the fact it comes in stick form, so I would advise doing any blending straight away as it does dry fairly quickly. I get around 6 hours wear out of this on the average day.

In summary, I would definitely recommend picking up the No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter if you're on the lookout for a cream formulation for summer. If you prefer a bit of bronze on your skin, there is also now a Instant Radiance Bronzing Highlighter too. You can check them out here.

Have you tried the No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter? What are your favourite highlighting products?
