REVIEW: St Tropez Skin Illuminator

Hello my lovelies,
About a year ago (!!) I bought this skin illuminator from St. Tropez in 'violet', whilst looking for a dupe for the MAC Strobe Cream. I think I was most attracted to this as it was on offer, but it also intrigued me!

This really does have a violet-coloured undertone to it - so is perfect for those seeking the bold look which I always associate with brands such as Illamasqua. Frankly, now I am wondering if this was meant for use on body rather than on the face - however I really have liked using it. It's perfect for a bold 'night-out' look and I think would look particularly great on those with a darker skin tone. If I wear this alongside a bright pink blush, it tends to look awful! However - I must say that it is incredibly illuminating and so I will continue to use this when I want a more eye-catching look until it has run out - and am especially looking forward to trying it out on my legs in the summer!


  1. I picked up the Rose Gold one last summer to go alongside my (fake) tan. I love it for shoulders and legs :) xx

  2. I also have the rose gold one and I use it mainly as a highlighter but also on legs and de collatage to make my skin glow with a tan!! xxx

  3. That really does look quite illuminating! It looks pretty good though :)

  4. this looks so nice! I can imagine it looking lovely over collar bones and shoulders on a night out

  5. This is such a great idea!! I've never actually used this, I'm always worried I'm gonna end up looking awful!! I may have to give this a try though, thanks for the great review! XxxX
