Review // Collection 2000 Face & Body Illuminator in Maldives

Collection 2000 Face & Body Illuminator - £3.10
 I was recently on eBay looking at make-up and came across the Collection 2000 Face and Body Illuminator in shade Maldives. It's sister product, Collection 2000 Face and Body Illuminator in Palm Beach, has been described as a dupe for NARS Multiple in Palm Beach, however the whole Collection 2000 Face and Body Illuminator product range is likened to NARS Multiples.

It only cost £3.10 (including P&P) which is £25.90 cheaper than NARS Multiples! I haven't ever tried the NARS Multiples but having read some reviews online, they do sound very similar.

The stick Maldives comes in is retractable, which is very handy as you twist it up, wipe it where you desire, twist it back down then throw it back into your make-up bag. I forgot to take a photo of the stick itself with the lid off but you get the general idea. The stick is the perfect size for highlighting cheekbones - one short swipe and you're all good. However, this can be a bit of a pain when you want to highlight the inner corner of your eye as it's really chunky and very pigmented so you don't need to use too much.

The colour itself is a gold highlight with a silver shimmer to it, making it the perfect highlighter for cheekbones, eyes and cupid's bow. I find the stick too chunky to be able to highlight the inner corner of my eye as it is very chunky, which is a shame.

This product lasts around 5 hours of wear (without a setting spray) but if you regularly re-apply your make-up then it shouldn't be a problem for you. Overall, I am really impressed by this whimmy eBay purchase. It is a lovely cheap highlighter with a  lovely golden shimmer, perfect for highlighting cheekbones.
