George Glow Shine Highlighter in Sun Ray

You may remember me mentioning this highlighter in my previous post about the George Cheeky Tint which is a dupe for Benefit's Posie Tint, and I feel another dupe alert coming on!

The Glow Shine is a luminous waterbased highlighter with a soft warm pink tone. George haven't gone all out on design with the clear glass bottle packaging but it's compact and you can easily see how much product you have left.
The consistency is much more cream than liquid so could've done with being in a pot rather than bottle but the flexible brush aids application to the cheeks, nose and browbone as only a small amount is needed. The thin cream is easy to blend out with fingers or a brush and quickly dries to a velvety finish which I find an advantage as I'm not a fan of sticky feeling face products.
From afar, this highlighter does give the 'naturally radiant glow' that George promises and is a flattering colour on my skintone- Sun Ray is close to Benefit's High Beam but with a bit of warmth from Sun Beam added in. The problem I find with this and other luminisers of the same consistency (even Benefit's) is that once blended out the tiny flecks of shimmer tend to highlight my pores, even on my cheeks where I didn’t think they were very big. To negate this I've been mixing it with a small amount of primer before application, but it's an unnecessary faff compared to a product like the Jemma Kidd All Over Radiance Cream which I can just smooth on and go.

The Glow Shine is a very close highlighter dupe to Benefit's High Beam but unfortunately one that just doesn't sit well on my skin. If this type of product does work for you then you could do worse than getting yourself down to Asda to give this a try for less than a fifth of the price of Benefit's offering!

George Glow Shine is available in-store and online from Asda for just £3.50.


  1. I noticed the other day George's makeup range. Seems the entire collection is just dupes of other brands! For the price I will be trying out a few bit for sure!

    1. They do have quite a few dupes, I suppose Asda puts more effort into new foods than make up haha but Im not complaining. I bought their quick dry nail varnish the other day and I find it exactly the same as Rimmel but about half the price x

  2. I've only tried a powder highlighter before so am quite intrigued by what a liquid one would be like! I've seen someone raving about a similar one to this by mememe. It's a shame it doesn't quite work for you, I find highlighters to be quite hit and miss.

    1. I think W7 and Technic do cheapy ones as well, worth giving them a go for a few pounds cos Im sure they'd look nice on you! Im really loving a lotion kind of one at the moment x

  3. That does look super pretty and amazing price :) I love the mememe versions of these too!


  4. that looks lovely! I really want to try powdered highlighters but i also have one like this, shamefully its from the pound shop! BUT Its actually really good haha x

  5. Aww what a bummer! I definitely like how much cheaper it is, bu I wouldn't want my large pores to be highlighted. That wouldn't be cute haha.

    I'm so excited I found your blog!! Just followed you on Bloglovin :)
