Such a beautiful little treasure to own. I love this, but I only use it on special occasions because I am not paying an arm and a leg for another one.
Originally I got this (paid far over retail) just because it was so pretty in it's pan. Visually stimulating, with the light pink, blue purple and yellow veins.
When buffed into my skin, lightscapade makes my skin glow like nothing else. gorgeous. Subtle, yet it really makes a difference.
If you have the chance to get it, I recommend it : )
Love it! It looks absolutely beautiful in the pan and on my face. Most skinfinishes are too "shiny" for someone with oilier skin like me, but this one is just right. It looks rather white in the pan, but it just gives me a really nice glow without looking chalky. I use the fan brush to apply it on the highlighting areas (brow bone, tops of cheeks). Would definitely buy again if it weren't LE. However, I should note I bought this in December of 2006 when the collection came out and because I only use it to highlight it still has tons and tons left (almost as much as when I first bought it).
I really like this as a highlighter--I can't use it all over because it emphasizes my fine lines...strategically placed though, it's gorgeous. I love to look at it because it's so pretty LOL I will not pay $40 plus for it on ebay though...maybe it will make a return in the future??? If so, I'll stock up because I use it every day. LE products that I adore make me angry. BTW, I gave it a 4 lippie rating on price because like I said, on ebay they're way overpriced. Normally though, $24.50 is very reasonable considering how long the MSF's last...
Well, I really like Lightscapade I think there are many good dupes out there. I had this faze where I collected all the MSF's (well except for pleasureflush ) but I am wayyy beyond that now. Basically, this is the only one I kept because I find it very useful and pretty. I use it to highlight my browbone and cheekbones. I have been using it for about 1.5 years and holy crap does this sucker last! It doesn't even look half gone and I use it almost everyday! So from that standpoint it is great value. I will continue to use it, and not swap it away (until I find something I like even more). Bonus points because it smells soooooo goood.
Lightscapade is beautiful to look at but I agree with previous reviews it's nothing that special. Especially since this is discontinued, it's really nothing to hunt around for.... I was literally obsessed with Lightscapade for months because I missed the chance to buy it and felt this compulsive rage I "need" it. Now that I own it, it's indeed very pretty to look at and serves many purposes as a highlighter but there's plenty out there thans not LE that does a great job. I think I might try NARS Albatross but for some reason nothing seems to win me over like my cheapo NYX Mosaic Highlighter... I don't really know why. Nothing has provided a highlight sheen but that $5 gem. I'll still keep Lightscapade because I collect a lot of MSFs that are suiting to my skin (NC15) but this is one you can pass if you don't have a need to collect them all.
I bought this purely because of how beautiful it looks in the pan. I love seeing it in my drawer, it is very pretty. I do not however think it is anything particularly special. I use it as a highlighter on the t-zone, and for that purpose it works just fine, but like I said, nothing special. To get any pay-off quite a bit needs to be used, but alas, then my skin looks like shimmer city, very chalky and enhances the appearence of large pores. I have yet to use this as a lite, all over powder. It does give a very faint, glowy result, but I only notice this if i am really looking for it. I can not put this on and still look exactly the same. I was using this as my highlighter, but now that I have MAC Sculpt and Shape, this lies forgotten in favour of the fabulous highlighter in the Sculpt and Shape. Still a pretty product, but I am not heartbroken that it is an LE, and would not purchase again, simply because it is quite unremarkable (apart from its deceiving beauty in the pan), and I can find the same in other products. I also dont think I will ever finish it anyway, it lasts forever. I am not dissapointed that I bought it, becuase I did only buy it because of its prettyness (that and I loved the Danse promo pics), and it is not a bad products, just unremarkable.
I missed the original release of this so purchased it on ebay above retail. This is really gorgeous on and does deliver the glow from within that I've been looking for. I've used this to highlight my cheeks, bridge of nose, chin and above the eyebrows. Might try it as an all over powder tomorrow. And it's also beautiful to look at in the pan.
This is basically invisible on my skin. It barely shows up. I have to layer it on to see anything, and by then it just looks chalky. Nars Albatross is 100% times better, or better yet, Mac vanilla pigment works better. Lightscapade is USELESS.
for reference, I am fairly light skinned, NW25.
Oh how I wish this wasnt LE!! I was 150% suprised by this product. At first glance I didnt think much of it...on my brush I didnt think much of it but when I applied it on my skin I was blown away!! This is hands down the most amazing highlighter I have ever used. For reference I am NC15 by MAC standards and shade #20 in MUFE face and body and mat velvet+. I have blonde hair and green eyes. This gives a very natural looking glow and really makes my cheekbones pop. I own almost every shimmerbrick that has been made available and while I love my shimmerbricks, lightscapade gives me a much more natural highlight. I think this also works great for me because I am very pale. I dont know how well this would work for someone with a darker skintone but I would highly recommend it for those who are pale. In addition to applying this on top of my cheekbones if I apply it under my eye with a sweep of my MAC 188 it really makes my eyes look wider and brighter. If this product ever is repromoted I will definetly stock up. Its AMAZING!! The texture is soft and easy to apply and blend...the only bad thing I can say about lightscapade is that it is LE!!! This is definetly my favorite highlighter and when its gone I will miss it forever!!
LOVE this stuff. An absolutely gorgeous highlight. I sweep it lightly across the apples of my cheeks and along my temples everyday to give me a nice, youthful glow (okay - I'm 22, but I swear it makes me look 10 years younger! haha). I searched forever for someone who would swap this away to me, and I'm absolutely thrilled I found someone. I'd definitely purchase this again if they every bring it out of retirement.
