I don't understand why this has so many bad reviews; this is my everyday, go to highlighter. I put a little bit down my nose and across my cheekbones and it gives me a nice glowy look. It only comes off glittery if you use way too much. Just a nice swipe with a small brush is all you'll need to add some life to your face. I go over it once with my finger too just to disperse it and blend it a little bit more and it looks awesome. After that I'm out the door! Another plus: it doesn't make my extremely acne prone, sensitive skin break out. The only cons for me are the bulky packaging, which is still cute, and that the gold flecks could be the tiniest bit more finely milled.
I think this is a really cute product as a highlighter. I haven't experienced disco ball sparkles, if anything I wish it were a little more sparkly. I find it to be very finely milled and subtle. I love the packaging and the name. Will definitely repurchase.
ummm...no. This is a horrible product. PROS...oh, look there's none. CONS- where do I begin? I wanted a highlighter, and this is the opposite of what I wanted. For starters, it is flat out glittery, not the pretty subtle shimmer of highlighters. It just makes my face look like a glittery mess. Also, it looks extremely chalky and drying. And the glitter is spread out, too, so it just looks like somebody randomly dispersed glitter all over your face. Now I am aware that some people may not want this as a highlighter, that you would like your face to look like a chalky, glittery disco ball of disaster. If so, go out and buy this. But never again for me.
I completely agree with the others who say that this isn't "luminizing" and that's a horrible description for this powder. The powder itself is chalky and could be better. Not to mention that the "glitter" in the powder is awful. Whoever uses this will look like a disco ball when anything more than a dim light hits their face. I was looking for something to put on my under eyes as I have pretty dark circles and wanted to brighten them up. This is not it. It just makes everything glittery instead of glowing (which is what it's supposed to do). Just don't waste your money.
Note: If you are looking for a product that highlights and works try Hard Candy Bronzer in Tiki.
lol, I know it says "Luminizing", not "Mattifying", but didn't expect this much shimmer! xD It's very very very glittery and shimmery. So if your looking for yellow-ish beige highlighter or shimmer powder, its for you! I don't think anybody can use this for the whole face though . . .
Do love the yellow-tone color, its hard to find a pressed powder that's yellow base, not pink/orange >.<
I wish Mattifying Transluscent Powder had same exact color as this one! Too bad.
reasonably priced. decent product. great for both a suttle glow or shimmer. not too glittery. it is best used with a brush and not the heart shaped sponge it comes with.
This powder works great as a highlighter for me. I layer this on top of my normal highlighter to add some shimmer and it looks nice and soft. Like everyone said before me. This will look somewhat shimmery in natural light, but in sunlight....oh wow it looks ridiculously shimmery. I'm glad I didn't use that much because I would have looked like a flashlight. Even the arm I wiped my Kabuki brush with after I buffed it in had lots of shimmer! I advise strongly against using this all over your face...and always keep in mind how much more glittery it looks in the sun. I had no problems with the glitter, it is finely milled and not chunky. Pros: Works wonderful as a highlighter, or natural eyeshadow. Cute packaging, blends well.
Cons: Glitter gets everywhere.
I saw the Hard Candy line at Walmart and I was so excited. I remember back in the 90s? They were a really fun brand sold at department stores mostly known for their nail polishes. I was almost out of my favorite and discontinued highlighter so I thought I'd give this a go. First let me say I have very fair skin and this product doesn't show up on me. If you have darker skin this may be a wonderful highlighter but if you're fair this product is useless. The glitter in this product does show up a bit (but hardly) when I swatch but it is not at all chunky or over the top.
I have to agree with the majority...there are definitely large glitter particles in this powder that make it very difficult to wear (unless you're under the cloak or darkness or at a club). It's unfortunate because I really like the smoothness of the product, just not the obvious gold glitter. I do love the packaging though; it's quite sturdy, and I like the flip mirror/sponge compartment. I have repurposed this as an all over wash of nearly-there color for my eyes. It's actually quite beautiful and angelic on my lids.
Really liked the Welcome Matte powder by Hard Candy and thought I'd give Moon Glow a shot. Nice texture. Perfect colour for my fair skin tone. Still has the mirror under the powder like Welcome Matte (up, down, up down ... ). I didn't use the cute little sponge, instead opting for my regular powder puff. At about $8 at WalMart it's a great price. The downside ... holy glitter!!! Not the nice, finely milled shimmer I expected, but all out highly visible pieces. Glitter is not a friend at my age ... well, on my face anyway. Will save Moon Glow for the summer months on my shoulders, legs etc.
