Lisa Eldridge, aka one of the best makeup artists in the World (aka my idol/someone I want to hug in real life/source of continuous life and work inspiration), has recently launched her spring-summer collection featuring brand new products: blushes and highlighters (as well as some gorgeous new lipsticks and glosses). If you are just as invested in the beauty industry as I am, then I can tell you are already excited for this review.

Elevated Glow Highlighter
Lisa Eldridge Elevated Glow Highlighter (£27; Made in Italy) - is described as a skin-adaptive, glowy and seamless skincare/makeup hybrid highlighter that feels lightweight and looks flattering in all lighting. Available in four shades.
This highlighter comes in a beautiful glass bottle, containing 13 ml/ 0.43 fl.oz. of product. You do work with a rather chunky doe-foot applicator, with an oval-shaped "reservoir" in the middle that picks up most of the product. I do have a small issue with the liquid sometimes collecting around the mouth of the bottle, but other than that I love everything about the look and feel of Elevated Glow Highlighter.
In this post I feature Crystal Nebula, which is a light-golden champagne shade designed for light skin tones. It has a beautiful "lit from within" quality to it, appearing almost wet on my complexion. Upon closer inspection, you do see some pretty, micro shimmering pearls. Little goes a long way with this formula, you can easily use less or add more for that beaming glow that will shine bright for the stars.
As always, all of my swatches are raw and unedited (shot in daylight)
On the skin Elevated Glow Highlighter feels weightless, yet nourishing at the same time (thanks to Tamarind Indica, Oat Kernel Extracts and Glycerin). This is a fantastic option for beauties of a particular age since Lisa has used what they call a Filmexcel biopolymer technology here, that is supposed lift, tighten and smooth your skin (as well as protect it from pollution and environmental skin aggressors). It sets within 2-3 minutes, without leaving harsh lines or accentuating pores or texture.
I am very happy with the results Elevated Glow Highlighter gives me: ethereal, luminous and flawless complexion. It lasts up to 5-6 hours on me, before it begins to fade away gradually, which is something I truly appreciate in a cream product. I have tried a plethora of liquid highlighters in my reviewing years, however, nothing really comes close to this guy. A++
