I seriously love this product and am sooo glad it's part of the permanent collection. This is such a pretty golden champagne colour. I have previouslyonly ever used liquid illuminators and highlighters but I am glad to say I'm a convert to this product. I tend to use it over a darker blush (e.g BeneFit dallas or hoola) and it realy does transform my face to a glowy shimmery look. I can see this working for many skintones. I'm also very impressed with the staying power! Most shimmery blushers or highlighters can fade and gather in pores but this stuff seriously didn't budge all day and there was no need to re-apply. The price is also quite reasonable for the large amount of product you get.
i seriously adore this product. it's a beautiful champagne color which looks gorgeous on both cool and warm undertones. i know a lot of people comment on how expensive the mineralize skinfinishes are, but you don't need to apply very much to get a beautiful, brightened effect, so this will literally last you for years. but oily skinned girls beware! as with any of the msf's, the glitter in these will highlight big pores & make you look extremely shiny throughout the day. continued >>
Nice highlighter for us fair skinned girls. Not bronze at all. Just a shimmer highlight to the top of your cheeks or where ever you want it. Very nicely milled. Great product.
When applied very fairly, gives your skin an amazing glow. Looks amazing on pictures. Glowy not Oily looking. A bit expensive even if you get alot of product
Awesome highlighting powder that gives a glow to my cheekbones. I was using this everyday and thought dang, my cheeks look good, lol but then after seeing pics I knew I was applying wayyyyy too much, so be careful, you can easily end up looking like a disco ball. Now that I'm a little bit more light handed with the product, I apply it over blush, and its a beautiful glow for my skin. (I'm an NC45). My mom uses this too and she's an NC40. I've had this compact for over a year and I still haven't made a dent in it, so you'll be getting your money's worth.
I am NW20 and I love to use this as a highlighter, just goes on really naturally and stays all day. Combined with Nars Laguna and MAC's Trace Gold, I get the perfect summery bronze look! This MSF is part of my daily routine now, I was afraid of the shimmer but I'm so glad I bought it! FYI, I apply with a small skunk brush...
The first pic is the most accurate of how this looks. It's a light tan/golden MSF with lots of shimmer, but not glitter. I use this to highlight my cheekbones when im wearing bronzer & its amazing. I sometimes use this as a brow highlight also. The pan is huge. I don't think i will ever run out. I don't think this would work on super pale skin. continued >>
I like this highlighter a lot but it isn't my favorite ( my fave is Nars Albatross) The color is a dark champagne color which i think is just a bit too dark for my NC30 complexion. I think this would look a little better on me when i'm tanner, and the color would show up a bit lighter. Either way it looks gorgous in the pan, just make sure not too apply to much because it's a little bit chunky, and can emphasize pores.
I wasn't WOWED in the way I should have been. This was RIS from a wonderful swapper, and I was really excited to try it, but was hugely let down. It made my pores look like the size of Texas, and just gave me a bit of an oily look. My skin is naturally oily, and it's a look I'd like to avoid! I could see it as being a collarbone/chest highlighter, but I wouldn't wear it enough to justify it, so I just decided to swap it. The finish was nice, it felt soft on my skin, but it just didn't work for me.
I really love this as a highlighter (NC35). Looks just perfect and gives me that natural glow. Have already bought a back up!
