I LOVE this !! it gives me natural glowing look.
INSTRUCTION: BE CAREFUL about this
1. put it on t-zone to high light. don't brush it all over the face or cheek, if you do, it will give you wierd look. just for the hight light zone.
2. You should use a fine brush for evenly applying it. that's a key point. if you don't apply it evenly and finely , then it can make your pores look bigger. ( i use sonia kashuk - Synthetic Flat Top Multipurpose Brush for this, it's perfect for applying shimmer)
if you use it in the right way, then you will get gorgeous look !!!!
Out of all the highlights I've used, this have to top it so far. That natural radiant glow, I've finally achieved.
A big whoopiieee! Whenever I wear it people will always compliment on how great I look. Just a note, I have medium tan skin and it still works fine on me.
My first Smashbox product ever and have to say, excellent product!
This is the perfect product to use to get that 'glow from within' as that is exactly what it gives- a beautiful glow with no obvious shimmer/glitter etc. I use it in the day and cannot imagine now not using it. I have always been a fan of the glowy look- but not shiny/looking sweaty!! and this is perfect, i use some on my normal cheekbones to give me amazing cheekbones! and then down the center of my nose and very lightly across my forehead too....you can layer on more product for night time. Lightly used, or more heavily for night...both are look great and very nice in photos too. Its much much better (finer shimmer) than my BB shimmerbrick in pink which is what i was using before...Only thing is this product seems VERY delicate and i can imagine if u drop it it will crumble apart so i have to be so careful
I just tried this for the first time.......I am a die-hard mineralize soft and gentle fan but I want to branch out a bit. I REALLY love this..............its not at gleaming as the mineralize but thats not necessarily a bad thing.....I think I will purchase both regularly, as this is more appropriate for day, in my opinion. I also find that it doesnt magnify my pores like the mac product does. The only downfall is the price, although it seems like it will last forever so as long as you can foot it up front, its not like you will be replacing monthly. A definite winner!! I almost bought prism but I'm happy with this...........not much of a difference but this works with any look.
Purchased this from eBay in the color Lens and love it so much I want it in other colors. ( I also have it in a freebie duo of glimmer Smashbox sent me). It really gives an amazing warm glow to my skin yet mattify's at the same time and really diffuses the light on my skin... LOVE this. A little goes a long way and can't imagine ever emptying the pan. This stuff ROCKS!
AMAZING. Sincerely, it is the best highlighter I have ever applied to my "oh-so-lucky" cheeks! Firstly, the color is nearly neutral, so it blends with any blush or bronzer underneath. Also, the power does not reveal any cheap looking sparkles. Rather, the cheeks becomes illuminated with a sexy sheen. The powder feels light and soft. My only criticism is that a little goes a tremendously long way! I had once used too much and I looked like a shiny tin-man. Therefore, I recommend that one only uses this product to highlight the cheekbones, because placing the product all over gives a result that is WAY too intense in natural daylight. In addition, the packaging is a a pot with a screw-off lid; not the most efficient. And the price is worth the amount in the pot, which lasts incredibly long.
Weeeeeeee (this was the sound my heart made when I came across this item). I used this in conjunction with UD's Brightening Primer Potion, Smashbox's Healthy FX Foundation, and just lightly brushed this across my forehead, down my nose, and across each cheekbone. What was I left with, you ask? Oh, just a gorgeous, subtly imparted, BEAUTIFUL glow - seriously, a major "glow from within look". And, frankly, I've been so TIRED of my usual "matte" mineral make-up look (you know that feeling?) so I'm quite happy with my new routine! A definite HG product, people!
I love this. I went to the Smashbox counter in Nordstroms and the sales associate tried this on me and I loved it. It is a shimmer that reflects light and givse the illusion of silky skin. I use it over my blush and lightly across my forehead. Looks great.
I was guided to this purchase while browsing at Sephora for a good blush that I hoped would look natural. She suggested "Ginger" by Smashbox (which I do absolutely love; it looks so natural and *right* on my face, almost like a contouring tool) and this highlighter. While it took me a while to get used to the slightly metallic sheen of this, i came to rather like it. Unfortunately, after a bit over a week I must reluctantly (yet definitively) say that it has caused pore-clogging breakouts in exactly those areas where I've applied it. This is especially conspicuous because I don't typically break out in those areas, and they're quite specific. I think I might use it very sparingly on special occasions when I know I'll have an opportunity to clean it off my face shortly afterward (and will try and pre-empt breakouts with some kind of medication underneath.) But I don't think metallics are good for my breakout-prone skin; I have yet to try one that doesn't irritate my face.
It has a very fine shimmer, so still appropriate for day-time look, on top of a matte blush since this is very sheer; really brightens up your face w/out lookin like a disco ball; no breakouts from the product either..I have this in color Lens, and true to the description, it's a very soft peach color.....got it on a sale from smashbox.com....probably won't buy again as i use very minimal amount each time, so it would last me awhile.
