Topshop's Crescent Moon Highlighter Review.

Hey Guys!
Hope you're all doing well; a while back I had a haul and a few people mentioned wanting to try the Topshop Crescent Moon Highlighter so now that I've used it over the past few weeks I thought I'd review the highlighter.
 Ok first of all can I start with the packaging? The packaging is so simple but the stars across it make it feel very Christmasy; which is probably why I like it so much. I like how Topshop are quite simply flawless with the packaging of majority of their products, this highlighter being no exception, it is sleek and lightweight as well as being quite stylish; I wouldn't mind being seen with it in my possession; it's not offensive or off putting in anyway. 
 When I bought Crescent Moon I was slightly sceptical of  whether or not I'd like it; I've tried highlighters in the past but they have been nothing special or too shimmery for my liking. To my pleasant surprise I'm really enjoying using the new Topshop highlighter, I apply using my ring finger and lightly tap across my cheek bones and a very small bit on my brow bone using a thin eye liner brush.
What I like about Crescent Moon is it is very suitable for the A/W period; I think that the gold tones and lightly dusted shimmer adds good definition to the face and brightens up the face more, I've used this pretty much ever since I bought it; I can wear it at school lightly and on a normal weekend build it slightly more if I want to; the only time I wouldn't use a highlighter would be if my face was slightly sore/red as the highlighter would draw more attention to it.
Not exactly a con to the product but something I will they had was a mirror; it would have been the perfect product if there was, however considering that it only cost me £10 and there is a lot of product I cannot complain much.

I think that Crescent Moon would suit most skin types and tones; the product itself if very versatile, day or night; summer or winter, for the price paid I can't complain, I never thought that I would add a highlighter to my everyday make-up routine but I have!
