Living in an area surrounded by small towns can be rough as a beauty blogger. I see all these other beauty bloggers and YouTubers going to CVS, Walgreens, etc. with all these awesome beauty products and I don’t usually get them in my stores for another 6 months to a year. I can of course drive an hour and 45 minutes to a bigger town and get them a bit sooner than that or I can drive 2 hours and see if some of the stores in Columbia have the items. Doing this on a regular basis, especially while in Cosmetology school from 8 am until 5pm can be difficult. So I was super excited when I found a town that’s about 30 minutes away that has a CVS and Walmart that actually get new stuff pretty quickly, like the Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighter in Notting Hill Glow that I scored the last time I was there!
The Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighters are billed as having light reflecting pigments that provide a luminous and radiant look. The Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighter currently comes in three shades Notting Hill Glow (an icy pink), Piccadilly Glow (a rosy pink), and Soho Glow (a bronze). The Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighters are said to be light enough to wear on the face and décolleté by itself or mixed in with foundations or primers.
The Walmart that I went to had all three of the Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighters in stock but I chose to just pick up the shade Notting Hill. Since I don’t self-tan I don’t usually bronze my face as well. That would look super weird wouldn’t it? Super Casper pale on the bottom, just stepped off the beach on top, yeah no. I also felt that the Piccadilly Glow was a bit pink for my skin tone. As you can see from the swatch, Notting Hill is an icy pink with reflective pieces in it. Due to this you want to use a small amount, a little goes a long way, and you want to blend very very VERY well. I actually did really like the way that the Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighter worked when mixed with my tinted moisturizer for a more luminous look. Again though, I needed to make sure to blend very well.
If you’re looking for a cheap highlighter, at $3.97 for a 0.84 oz. that’s pretty cheap, and are willing to put in the little extra effort of making sure your highlight or foundation is blended very well then you need to pick this up! However, if you’re looking for a highlighter that you can just pop on super quick and then run out the door then you’re probably going to want to skip the Rimmel Good to Glow.
My personal opinion is that this is a skip for me. I have other highlighters and illuminators that do a way better job and may be a bit more expensive but they’re worth the cost. I will, however, be keeping the Rimmel Good to Glow Highlighter in mind if I’m ever in a bind or need to recommend a decent liquid highlighter that is super cheap.
