I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with highlighters; it's that fine line that can go from having lovely glowing skin to ending up looking like a shimmery disco ball that scares me a little bit. Apart from my beloved Benefit High Beam i tend to stick to powder highlighters, i don't know but i feel like i can control the application better but inbetween my love affair with MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlight ive been having a little fling with the Studio 10 Youth Lift Glowplexion*.

Studio 10 is a high quality brand that is actually aimed at 35+ to help them enchance their feature and help bring back their youthful looks (Well as much as make up can) and to be honest, despite the fact that i'm 12 years younger than their intended audience, i'm really impressed with this brand - their contour palette and concealer palette are two of my most used products, i've been able to try quite a few of their products out and im yet to be disappointed.

I've had the Studio 10 Youth Lift Glowplexion* for a while but it's taken me ages to actually get round to using it. It's a liquid/cream highlight and illuminator that you can either apply before your foundation to give you an all over radiant glow or concentrate it on the cheekbones and other high points of the face to highlight - i prefer to use it mostly as a highlighter rather than an illuminator but it does work well either way.

I'd say it's almost a peachy toned highlighter which is quite unusual as most highlighters are either pink or gold toned but this is somewhere in the middle - i tend to opt for pink toned as i find they compliment my skin tone much better. I really like that the packaging uses a pump as you can control the amount it dispense and avoid wasting any product and it also means it's less mess. It is longlasting, lightweight and creamy - although, it does requite a little bit of extra effort to blend in, which is partly one of the reasons im not a big fan of cream products like highlighters and blushes but that little bit of work does end with a really lovely healthy glow.

It is quite a pricey product at £26.00 (available here) and whilst it won't be replacing my affection for MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlight anytime soon, it's still a lovely product and i will definitely continue to use it - i think it's going to be a lovely product to wear in the spring summer especially because it has a peachy tone to it.

Do you prefer powder or cream highlighters? I'd love to know your thoughts.
