I really wanted to like this product due to such good reviews, and me on the search for a good highlighter/eyeshadow to give my eyes that awake, brightness. Unfortunately, this is just too shimmery to be natural, and as a high school student, I wouldn't use this as an everyday thing. The packaging is also rather ugly and cheap looking.Definitely won't buy again.
okay, this is my first review. but i have to say it looks beautiful. i have been using this for several years, i love this on my cheeks to use as highlighter.
Newly in love with the entire Physicians Formula line. This was on sale at Long's Drugs, 50% off, so it was only 4 bucks. I got one from Target for around 6 dollars, in i think Classic, and the one from Longs is Touch of Smoke. It is amazing. Very natural. You can layer it over regular eyeshadow to make a new look. Highly recommend to all my friends. The packaging and brush included suck, toss the brush, it is useless. I toss all the brushes include when purchasing PF. The case is too big for a small eyeshadow, waste of plastic. Buy this product. I have yet to try Taupaz, berries, and the original white eye brightener.
I have mixed feelings about this product. On one hand it really is a great highlighter, makes me look wide awake and rested. On the other hand, it can look like too much very easily. Sometimes I apply this and think, 'wow, this stuff makes me look so rested and young!". Other times --maybe when I apply more? ---I look like I am trying to emulate a 20 year old with a fake orange tan, flatironed hair with 1" wide orange skunk stripes, and no common sense whatsover.
I love the compact itself, and the pan. I wish there was a law, ALL eyeshadows must be the .5 MAC size!!! It comes with a mirror and applicator. This is a GREAT overall highlighter, multi colored but ends up a nice neutral whitish-beige, so works with ANY eyeshadow colors.
A very nice all-over wash on the lids and looks really nice when I am under the sun. I use this to make me look awake when I am not...
I wear this almost everyday! A little bit goes a long way and i think it really opens up my eyes.
This is too shimmery for over-50 me, but I tried applying it more lightly and smudging it a bit with my finger, which toned it down. Can't use it in my eye corners cause I have wrinkles there, but it's good as a browbone and lid highlight.
This is a wonderful product! It looks lovely against my slightly bronzed, olive skin and it really makes me look awake. Only complaint is that it looks very powdery when first applied, but, like others have mentioned, after a few minutes it looks amazing. To speed up this process, I blend with my finger after applying to take away the ''powdery-ness``. I'm left with a sheer wash of radiant color. Again, this looks GORGEOUS on tan skin. I'll definitly repurchase when I run out, but it does last a while (I've had mine for about a year and a half). I like to apply it on my bottom lash line too, for a radiant look. I'd like to try the ''hint of gold'' eyebrightener next time.
I've been buying lots of Physicians Formula makeup lately and haven't been disappointed with any of their products. This works as advertised. It gives a nice shimmering effect to my eyelids. Like another reviewer mentioned, it actually looks better after you have been wearing it a little while. I have very sensitive eyes and wear contacts, so I have to be careful with the products I use. This doesn't irritate my eyes at all.
