There is something undignified about a glowing, metallic highlighter during daylight hours. Bit tragic? Bit try-hard? Bit space-buns? Metallics do their best righteous work when the sun has gone down. Their pearly, shimmery schtick is deeply pleasing but, at 11am, it looks amateur. However that does not mean that we are prepared to give up on the architecture of our face. We still want cheekbones and radiance just without the glimmering, gleaming signposts that we’ve painted them on. Perricone MD’s No Highlighter Highlighter is a luminous complexion brightener without the glitter. Dotted on to cheekbones it pulls focus, and blended across the top of eyebrows and down the bridge of the nose it starts to give that elegant sculpted look without the tweeny strobing. Grown-up highlighting for grown-up people.
