Contrary to how most others have rated this product, I have to say that I am impressed. The consistency isn't runny and the peachy color seems to disappear right into my light (with yellow undertones) skin. I would say that darker skin tones might not wear this well in that the color is way too light. I recommend mixing this with your liquid or cream foundation in your hand or when using with a brush and really blending well once on your face. This delivers a very flattering, slightly shimmery look to your complexion and doesn't leave your skin oily or greasy (I am normal-oily skin type). I really have to say that for the money, I am impressed with this product and would purchase again with no hesitation.

I like this product well enough, just not well enough to buy it again. I like it better than Revlon Skinlights in Peach Light which is kind of the color of this. It does give a nice shimmer that's somewhere btwn the barely there of SkinLights and the full but still wearable Becca SSP (which is what I compare liquid highlighters to), the same goes for the consistency of the liquid. It's not as thin as Revlon and not as thick as BECCA.

Nice illuminator, perfect for darker skin tones.
This is great for summer when you get a tan, great for anyone with darker skin tones. Not perfect for me, since I have a lighter skin tone, but... Oh well, it still looks good with some self-tanner/bronzer.

Eh I'm on the fence with this. Theoretically it's a peachy highlighter. On my African American skin it's very subtle, and comes across more of a brown bronze than peach. The size is outstanding for the price. I like the small hole used to squirt the products out, because its easy to start with a tiny amount and go from there. It's almost too subtle for me though. I don't wear highlighter everyday, and certainly don't like dramatic, shimmery frost on my face. But this is barely noticeable. Adding more makes it too noticeable. I even angled my face in the sun and the glow was hard to spot. I use a small stippling brush to work a dot on the highpoints of my cheekbones. I use it when im not wearing much makeup. If you're afraid of looking too summery this may work. For the price I don't regret it, but I'm not sure if I'd repurchase.

This illuminator is great! It does give a bit of a shiny glow without sparkles! I have other highlighters but they add sparkles, so this one is my very favorite! It blends in very well, I use over my BB cream and it really adds some oomph! I will be buying again!
