I'm not sure what other people are seeing in this. I think it is awful. It doesn't blend, and it makes my face look like a disco ball. Much too much comes out of the pump as well, which makes it messy. I had to laugh when I saw the instructions said to use it alone.
I have tried many luminizers/ highlighters and this is The best luminizer ever!!!
I'm actually doing a review on the new illuminizing powder. It is amazing!! It might be early as it is only my first day, but I am WOWED! A little bit goes a long way with this one, but the finishing result is so natural looking, glowy, not too sparkly. As we speak, my skin feels soft. The powder comes a bit loose when you swirl it with a brush so I'm a bit worried that it might not last too long. Other than that, this is the perfect illumizer! So good for your skin!
I have been using a Smashbox highlighter for years, but picked this up in a fairly recent Josie Maran haul. This line is really working for me, and this highlighter is so fantastic that it will be replacing my Smashbox for good. What I like about the JM highlighter is that it melds beautifully with my skin. When pumped out it seems bronzy, but, when smoothed on my cheekbones, nose and cupid's bow, it is flesh-toned. There is no pearly or silver cast, it just GLOWS. My skin looks incredibly luminous and healthy. I'm very impressed.
I got this product in the Sephora Favorites Glits & Glam kit and I love it. I wore it on my cheekbones and it gives such a pretty, natural shine to my lighter skin. I used to use high beam, which I also love, but I've been reaching for this product a lot more since I got it. I think I am going to purchase the full size bottle of this but I like the tube packaging so much better than the pump. continued >>
I got this in a LE light gold color. It comes in a pump bottle which sucks because its impossible to do half of a pump so you get all this extra product in your hand. I put it on my brow bone and cheeks bones and it looks like my skin is glowing. It last for most of the day. It does dry fairly fast so i cant blend it as much as id like
I had to pump the bottle about a hundred times to finally get it to come out but I think I love this! I smoothed just a tiny amount on my cheekbones, nose and chin and I was . . . well . . . glowing. In a really good way. I will try it out tomorrow for a full-day test but first impression is really good!
I have a love-hate relationship with this highlighter.
I really think it leaves such a beautiful glow on your face, BUT, I find that it takes a bit of work to make it look natural. Oddly enough, when I apply it with my fingers, it can easily look streaky. I tried all kinds of patting motions and such, but couldn't quite get it to work for me. It just looked like two landing strips on each of my cheekbones. Not cute, right? Right.
Then I started to apply it with a blush brush (I used a cheapy ELF one), and it worked much better. I also find it looks so much more natural with you very lightly powder your skin on TOP of the illuminizer just because it's really easy to put too much of this stuff on. But yeah, under powder, it gives a "lit from within" look that I'm totally loving right now.
It's expensive, but you got a lot of product. I've been using it for about 6 months almost every day and haven't even used up a quarter of it. The phrase, "a little goes a long way" is so overused in the beauty world, but it's SO true with this product.
I've grown to love this one. I would recommend it, just be careful with the application and take the time to make it look natural.
