We can never have enough of highlighters, now can we? This jumbo stick of highlighter looked so convenient and easy to use on the high cheek bones that I had to pick it up. See how it turned out in the review below 🙂
Cream highlighter crayon that adds a healthy dewy radiance to the skin. Easy-to-use, blendable formula; swipe and go! Highly pigmented, buildable pearlescent sheen.
GBP 3.99. Available at Boots UK and Superdrug.
My Experience with Superdrug Collection Speedy Highlighter Pearl Sheen 1:
This highlighter was launched with a contour cream palette last year. This looked so cute with the whole jumbo twist-up smooth pencil. Ease of use can be easily noticed with this product, something like a jumbo blusher stick by Clinique.
The amount of product you get is not too much if you see, but since the highlighter is used sparingly, this seems okay. The texture is average, not too thick or light, and you can swipe it on the face directly on the bridge of the nose and the high cheekbones. It looks good as it is, but once you blend it, the trouble begins. I have noticed that when I blend, it just vanishes into thin air, you simply cannot see any highlight. May be it would show up better on lighter peaches and cream skin tone, but otherwise, the product does not show up as soon as you try to blend it.
The color can be described as a cool-toned whitish highlight, not a very warm shade for dark skin tones.
The product is not thick enough to set, and hence just disappears. This actually can be used like a highlighting base all over the face 😛 it is so light. There is no chunky glitter or shimmer in this highlight. Though versatile, I would want something that shows up more and lasts too! For me, this is a product I would need to layer on and on.
Pros of Superdrug Collection Speedy Highlighter Pearl Sheen 1:
- Easy to use.
- Cute jumbo stick.
- Can be applied directly without a brush hassle.

Cons of Superdrug Collection Speedy Highlighter Pearl Sheen 1:

- Would not last long even if you build it up.
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Superdrug Collection Speedy Highlighter Pearl Sheen 1?
If you really want a light illuminating base or highlight, only then. For me, it did not work!
