I’ve had this Gerard Cosmetics BB+ Illumination Facial Creme for a couple of months now since I featured it in my Beauty Bay haul, and I’ve hardly used it that much. A favourite of bloggers, I bought it because it was recommended by Kaushal Beauty, proving that it really doesn’t take much to market to me!
It’s not because I hate the product, but this is part of my professional makeup kit, so I save this for my clients, and honestly this is the kind of product you save for special occasions.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
This retails for £18 on BeautyBay and only comes in one shade.
HOW DOES IT WEAR?
When applied on its own, it gives the most beautiful golden highlight or mixed with foundation, it gives an illuminated glow that makes you look like you’re shining from within.
I mean we can’t look like ethereal angels every day, but I’m going to try!
For me personally, I like to glow for special occasions, so I only use a tiny bit of this on my clients or myself for that subtly highlighted look.
WOULD I RECOMMEND IT?
I think if you’re scared to try out powder highlighters, start with this. It’s subtle and you can use a little or a lot to create the desired effect.
It is a little pricey, but for £18 you get a really decent amount of product that’s very versatile.
