Lush Feeling Younger Skin Tint

Following on from my last review where I raved about Passionate, one of the lip colours from the Lush Emotional Brilliance range, today I thought I'd show you my other purchase from the new range; the Feeling Younger skin tint.
As soon as I saw this I knew that it would be coming home with me. The idea of this tint is that the light reflecting shimmer in the cream helps to reflect light and brighten the skin. Now, the obvious choice of application is to use the cream as a highlighter around the tops of the cheek and along the brow bone, and this really does look gorgeous, but another way that I have been using the skin tint is to mix a tiny amount with my foundation or BB cream so that it gives a soft glow to my complexion and a nice dewy finish.
The amount in the swatch above is enough to mix with foundation for a lovely, brightening finish. As you can see, this really is a beautifully creamy product and its also highly pigmented meaning you only need the tiniest amount per use, especially if only using for highlighting the brow or cheeks. Immediately it is easy to make a comparison with Benefit's High Beam which is similar in regards to effect, however the Lush skin tint does not have the same pink tone and is a lot creamier, although the biggest difference is the style of the tub making it easier to use and blend in my opinion than when using the Benefit polish brush applicator. It is also a lot cheaper at £12 per tub so over all, a pretty good bargain for such a similar products in my eyes, especially as it is actually better (in my opinion).
Finally, like all Lush products, I thought it was important to share that this skin tint has in no way been tested on animals or manufactured using ingredients that have been which is a big bonus.
Lush products are known for having a short shelf life, however the new Emotional Brilliance range and that includes the skin tints, all have a shelf life of around 18 months so there is no need to worry about this going off after a couple of months and like all Lush goodies, they are delivered freshly made to the store and have a production date on the bottom. Mine was made a couple of weeks ago :) Another interesting fact I learnt was that the glass pots can be thrown across the room and still wont break so no worries there!

Have you treid any of the Skin Tints? I have my eye on the bronzing tint at the moment. Would you buy Feeling Younger?
