I put "no" for repurchase but I may again. This bottle lasts you quite a long time, like the "tints" that Benefit sells. It has a beautiful finish on the skin and actually works quite well for people with combination skin (I can get quite oily fast, which speeds up the process when using highlighter). I may repurchase again but I haven't been 'into' highlighting lately.

IMO overpriced and overhyped.The liquid formula doesn't apply too well for me, you have to spend ages blending out the lines but often I can still see exactly where the product starts and where it ends. Perhaps it's my poor skills but it often also swipes off the underneath foundation... I also hate getting my fingers messy with this. It's just so much easier to apply a powder illuminator. The wear is quite good though - once you get this on nicely it stays there pretty much all day!The shade is very nice, doesn't have annoying glitter particles in it, but I think it's too bright and pigmented. It's very easy to put on too much of this/end up looking overdone (at least for my taste). It lasts quite long because of the pigment, but a lot of product will probably go to waste because you can't reach the remainings at the bottom.With all these downsides considered I wouldn't have found this TOO bad, but (my generally not sensitive) skin got very irritated by this - painful burning & itching sensation every time - obviously quit using this.

This highligher looks amazing on most of the people I've seen wearing it. I love the pearly colour. However, since I have such pale skin, the highlighter doesn't really show up on my skin. I've tried blending this with my fingers and also a beautyblender, and I found that it does look better with the beauty blender. But it just doesn't show up on my skin like it does on other people.

Products like this are just terrible to me. I do not think they look nice on anyone's skin. Looks fake even when blended.

Too pale. Looks cheap on the skin (as does the packaging)

I love, love LOVE this product!Dry, flaky, pale skin mean that this is the highlighter for me. I use this over my foundation (Catrice All-Matt Plus) and it gives me a perfect shimmer with a really healthy glow. I have no complaints whatsoever. For me, this is my go-to product that I wear every day, makeup or not. I've had this product for around 6 months now and I'm barely 1/3 through the bottle and when I say I use this every day, I mean EVERY day. Complaints I've seen about this product is the product under-tone (pinky-white) and that it's difficult to apply. Also, the price. I don't know of any other highlighters that work for all of these complaints, but if you're willing to splash the cash, Benefit's Watt's Up is your holy grail if you have darker, more oily skin and aren't a fan of the nail-varnish style applicator that this product comes with.At first, straight after application, this can feel a little wet on your skin, but after blending, dries nicely into your skin, yet still leaving a little hydration. The white-ish undertones, for me, fade as I blend, leaving a pleasant, pinky tone. For me, this felt quite natural, un-perfumed and feels nice on the skin. Over all, for me, this is one of the best beauty purchases I've ever made. It is the missing piece that I've been looking for and I will rave about it to anyone who listens. For dry, sallow skinned, practically transparent ladies like myself, just buy it now. Now! Go! Thank me later. For my darker-skinned, oily counterparts, head for Watt's Up, also worth splashing the cash.

Got a sample size of this in a set a few months ago - its only an ok product.My main gripe with it is the lumpy glitterball texture. Its not as finely milled as you'd want, the glitter particles can look very obvious under some lights, although I find if you buff long enough it starts looking more natural. I just don't feel like I should put that much effort into a highlighter, especially a more expensive one like this. Its also way too cool toned for my NC 25/C2 skin, it almost pulls blue and looks a bit unflattering. So for the above two reasons I will not be repurchasing.Having said that it does ave very good lasting power and usually looks the same at the end of the day as it did when I put on, if you don't mind the extra buffing time and dont have strong yellow undertones this could still work very well for you

Ehhh.I bought this product a while ago and have not been able to get it working for my skin. It took me a few goes at applying this product to figure it out. I first applied it under foundation, but by the time I applied my foundation/powder it was gone. I then tried on top of foundation and was left with a horrible finish on my skin!! It clung to certain places and broke away instead of leaving you with a beautiful highlight. I must admit, it looked great in photos and from far away but on closer examination of my face it was a train wreck. I now opt for powder/cream highlights with more of a yellow tone instead of the pink/white that is in this product.I personally wouldn't purchase this product again.

I LOVE this product!! I use it over my BB cream on my upper cheeks, nose bridge, and on my chin to highlight. I finish it off with bronzer blush on my cheeks and it makes my skin look glowy and beautiful. I like the applicator, I just dab a bit on the areas and dab/blend it in with my fingers. This is definitely in my daily makeup routine. I don't wear much makeup daily anyway (BB cream, highlighter, bronzer blush, mascara) so this product gives me an amazing dewy, glowy natural look.
