Clinique Up-Lighting - 03 Blush

When it comes to the appearance of skin, we at the Beauty Bite always aim for illumination. Whilst the hunt used to be on for the perfect full-on foundation, more and more women are opting for sheer bases topped with liquid highlighter to deliver that elusive dewy look.

Clinique's Up Lighting tubes are available in 4 generic shades (natural, bronze, blush and peach), which can be used for both highlighting and mixing. We tried out number 3 - 'Blush' - a brown based red packed full of shimmer.

Dispensed via a pump, as always with these products far more liquid than needed was dispersed. Because the shade is so strong, we cautiously applied the illuminator onto our cheeks using a stippling brush. The bristles managed to break up the shimmer particles beautifully and dispense a fine veil that caught the light to perfection.

We won't lie - the colour is bold! We're used to our gold, pink and white highlighters. Having ultra pale skin makes wearing red based products tricky, and unfortunately, unless patted on with a brush, this shade is far too intense for our colouring. However, if you're lucky enough to have medium to dark skin then this product would look divine. It gives great wear and an absolutely stunning glow - it makes a fantastic blush.

At £18.50 for a 30ml bottle it's certainly worth a punt. It stays fresh for up to 2 years and is wonderful to blend. Plus, the shimmer doesn't look like you've just survived an explosion in a glitter factory - result!

Clinique Up-Lighting is available worldwide and from for £18.50
