The BH Cosmetics x Ashley Tisdale Illuminating Shimmer Powder (£6 for 9.8 g) is the illuminators Ashley Tisdale created in her collaboration with BH Cosmetics. They are available in two shades; Shimmering Sand (a more cooled tone shade) and Beach Bum (a more warm tone one).
On their website they state that the illuminators
– enhances face and body with a beautiful sheen
– is a silky, buildable baked powder
– gives an intense yet natural-looking radiance
– enhances all skin tones
– are highly pigmented
I was a bit sceptical about the illuminators to begin with as they are only available in two shades and I honestly didn’t think any of the shades would match me. I tried the lightest one (Shimmering Sand) and got pleasantly surprised as it actually was light enough for my fair skintone! The illuminators are illuminators and not highlighters! I think it is important to know the difference especially if you are looking for a blinding highlighter and then buy these because what you get here is a very subtle glow. An illuminating glow. I really like the look of the illuminator – it is very subtle and gives you that “glow from within” look which I some days really love! If you want a illuminator for your no-makeup days, then I would definitely recommend looking into these! They are not glittery at all and look very natural! I think the two shades will complement a lot of skintones. Shimmering Sand might mostly be for the fair to light-medium skintones while Beach Bum is more for the medium to dark skintones.
I can’t get over how surprised I got about this product and how I actually fell in love with it when I finally decided to give it a chance! The product lives up to all the statements – maybe not the one about it being intense as I think it is very subtle! I think the compact itself is very flimsy but that is what to expect for the price. I really enjoy this product and will award it 5 out of 5 possible hearts!
I think it is a beautiful illuminator and I actually don’t think they need more shades as I think they hit a lot of skintones with these two shades. Have you tried the BH Cosmetics x Ashley Tisdale Illuminating Shimmer Powder? If you have, then let me know your opinion in the comments!
