I think this might be my HG highlighter. It is perfect on me, but it is definitely not universally flattering. I'm pale and yellow and this looks uhmazing on me. I can't see this working on pink toned girls. I was told this works on skin tones darker than mine, but I would disagree as I am around MAC NC15 and I think getting it to work depends more on your undertones. Has good pigmentation for a highlighter, isn't so sheer you need to pack it and not so pigmented that you need to apply sparingly. It lasts all day for me and I don't have any issues with application. The formula doesn't feel particularly amazing; it isn't silky and buttery, but it isn't cheap and low quality either. Not a big issue though, I buy luxury makeup if I want luxurious textures. I guess I would describe the shade as a white based yellow gold. I only ever like to highlight my cheekbones but I wouldn't recommend this to highlight other parts of your face such as your nose. It just made my nose look jaundiced. There are sparkle flecks in here and it isn't completely shimmery smooth (if that makes any sense), but there aren't glitter chunks or large particles so it doesn't look like glittery child's makeup. Just something to consider if you want more of a refined satin finish. Like most highlighters I am pretty sure this will last me a good while. Addicted and I recommend trying to see if it suits you! I just love how I look with this, makes me look glowy and bright. Just a perfect match for me.

This is good. It shows up on pale skin. It's easy to blend. It doesn't add oil. Packaging is fine. I'll repurchase.

This product is so great for highlighting and lasts a very long time. It only takes a little bit to be noticeable on the skin and the powder is very light and not cakey at all. The product lasts for most of the day. My only complaint is that it it is a bit too sparkly for my taste.

I LOVE this highlighter. I am extremely pale and it gives me an amazing natural glow. People say it looks yellow on them, but I haven't had that experience, and everything always pulls yellow on my because I have very strong pink undertones. Elf gotta glo is recommended by a lot of people as a dupe for this but that is about half as pigmented and does not last well on the skin.

I just bought this product and I heard great things but I am on the fence. It's a nice gold tone and goes on nicely but the price is hard to justify for such a plain highlighter in comparison to others on the market. I would suggest asking to try it at sephora first before you Dish out the cash and see how you feel. You may so want to look into physicians formula highlighter from wal mart. It's cheaper and also gives a great shimmer.

I dunno if I'm applying it wrong, but it looks too yellow on me. My complexion is in Deauville (Nars).. .

This is my favorite highlighting powder to use on my cheeks every day, it's the subtle look and if you want it to be a little more dramatic just keep applying!

Nars powders are great that I've found in staying on all day also by keeping your looks looking dramatic or subtle for any mood. The powder is fine so it doesn't clump or make you look like you have powder on your face.

I'm always in search of the best highlighter, and I think I've found it. Initially, I thought it was going to be very white, but it's light gold. I use it with Orgasm or Outlaw and it's perfect. LOVE!
