I’m not sure what it is about this time of year, but it’s easy to feel a bit ‘blah.’ Maybe it’s because Christmas feels like decades ago, and the Easter break is more than a few weeks away, or perhaps it’s the cold and grey weather, but I never feel right at this time of year. So, in an attempt to give my skin a bit of a faux-glow, I turned to Too Faced’s Fresh Squeezed Sparkling Pina Colada Highlights Drops
Part of the brand’s Tutti Frutti collection, the Highlighting Drops are a multiuser product which can be used on the face, on eyes, on the body, and even added to foundations and moisturisers to give a little extra glow. Packaged in an adorable glass bottle, complete with dropper, the Pina Colada version (there are two, and I’ve reviewed Pink Grapefruit here) is a flattering champagne colour, which should work well with most skin tones. For days when I want my skin to look a little glowier than normal, I add a drop into my moisturiser, and follow up with a tinted moisturiser or skin tint as normal. The result is skin which looks naturally illuminated with a little sparkle thrown in there for good measure.
The Highlighting Drops have an incredibly light, almost watery consistency. Blended into the skin, there is no stickiness or tackiness – just hydration and a little golden glitter which sparkles in the light. For evenings out it’s glorious blended into the high points of the cheekbones, and it’s beautiful blended out on the eyes too. It has a subtle coconut scent, but that vanishes when applied, and instead you’re left with skin which looks healthy and hydrated.
