Rimmel Good To Glow In Soho Glow

30th March 2017
Rimmel Good To Glow

The world has gone highlight mad and I’m no exception. I tend to favour powder highlighters or matte creams. However I’ve had my eye on a cream bronze highlighter for Summer. Think ColourFX drops or Benefit Sun Beam.

I find these kinds of products lift makeup underneath. It’s been years since my once beloved Benefit High Beam was used. As I find these are better for more minimal makeup than I wear now.

However in Summer or on holiday, I love a bronzed skin focus look. When I spotted Rimmel Good To Glow in Boots for £4.99 I decided to get it. It’s not a product I’ll use frequently so I can’t justify spending too much on it.

Rimmel Good To Glow In Soho Glow

It’s available in two shades: Soho Glow which I purchased and Notting Hill Glow which is a pinky shade.

Soho Glow is a bronze shade with very finely milled glitter. It’s not sticky in consistency and glides onto skin easily. I was surprised at how well this product blends into the skin. The cream is very sheer and not overly pigmented which I like.

Rimmel Good To Glow is a cool gold shade and it’s super reflective. I love the way the light catches it. To recreate this look with a powder highlight you would need considerably more product on the skin. The light picks up not only the shimmer but the cream itself.

When the light isn’t picking up the highlight it’s very subtle on the skin. It doesn’t draw attention to texture or imperfections.

I wore this all week in Lanzarote with minimal makeup and loved it. I’ll be getting this out again for the Summer months.

    I think this might be a little too dark for my skin but I love the idea of adding a little summer glow to my makeup routine. My pasty skin misses the sunlight!

    This looks so good! I would definitely wear this in the summer or at least when I’m wearing fake tan for an extra glow.

    I love a good highlighter! Everywhere on my face lol! This looks very pretty and should be even prettier with a bit of a tan, so definitely one for the summer! x

    This looks like it will be gorgeous in summer, but I must admit I’m more of a powder highlight person!xx

    I have a similar product and love to use it on my cheekbones and/or on my eyelids. Makes a super quick yet pretty eye makeup!
