Rimmel Good to Glow Illuminator

I was debating on buying Mac Strobe Cream when I saw Lisa Eldridge use this in one of her videos and I had to give it a go for myself. I've used this all over my skin underneath my foundation, as well as adding it to the places on my face that I want to have a bit of a glow after I've finished applying all my makeup; such as my cheek bones, nose, eyebrow bone etc; and it works pretty well both ways. I think it works best when applied subtly before your foundation all over, and then again on the high points of your face after wards. It gives this a pretty, natural glow.

It has a really lovely creamy texture, and doesn't sit in my pores which is the main thing I hate about cream products! As you can see from the swatch, it's a different colour tone to Mac's strobe cream, (which is more of a white, silvery highlight) and to be honest, I think I prefer the champagne tone to this one, I presume it'll look far from natural and give you that bronzed glowy look, which is pretty neat for summer! I think this is a pretty good drugstore find at only £4.99; and is one of the only cream products I've got along with in a very long time. If I decide to buy Mac's strobe cream, it will be interesting to see how these two fair up when compared!
