GOLD by Giles Pink Cheek Highlighter

I’m sure most of you have heard that quite recently fashion designer Giles Deacon has teamed up with New Look to create an affordable make up range – GOLD by Giles.  The range is made up of things like lipstick, nail varnish and eye shadow palettes




However on my way to the till recently I spotted this highlighter, in the shade ‘pleasure’. I don’t really own many highlighters, and thought for the £2.99 price tag, it was definitely worth a shot.

The product comes in stick form, it’s a pretty pink colour, and not too shimmery. It does need to be blended properly in order to stop it looking caked on though. The pigmentation isn’t amazing, but it did give a fairly nice overall glow. Out of interest I did a swatch of it next to Benefit’s High Beam to see how the two compared.However for £2.99 I’m not complaining,  the packaging is cute and if you are looking for an extremely affordable highlighter, I’d say give this one a go.

  • I Love this highlighter! Seeing as I use just light eyeshadows all the time (oops). Thanks for sharing!


  • i like that it's not overly shimmery like high beam. Looks good, might have to pick some stuff up.

  • I had no idea about this new make up range in newlook! May go and have a nose around now! <3

  • Looks like this would be fab for everyday xx

  • that looks like a great product, might give it a try especially with that price tag!

  • That's a great color, not too vibrant but it makes a statement =)

  • I love that it's not a really strong shimmer, sometimes highlighters like that too way too over the top! For £2.99 I don't think you can go wrong with this really 🙂 I tried the God by Giles nail varnishes and they're great value for money too! 🙂 x

  • I like the packaging of this one, and the fact it's a stick – I sometimes use a wee bit too much high beam! Xo

  • That looks really cute~~
