My favorite way to wear this is by mixing it into my moisturizer and putting it on after I wash my face, and before my foundation. Depending on the level of shimmery "glow" you want, you may want to add quite a bit to your moisturizer, but I add only a little bit to it, then put it on my face. When I put foundation over it, my face does seem to look a little brighter afterward. I wouldn't say there are dramatic differences or anything, but I still do like this product and would buy it again. You can use this product many different ways, too, that's just the way that I prefer it!
Well....It seemed like it would be a really pretty, pink tone highlighter for face and body- and I suppose it is. It's a good thing though that it comes in such a ginormous tube though because you have to slap on a ton of this stuff for it to even show up! I feel like I could use half the package trying to get a shimmery look on one cheek(face, not butt lol).
Pretty effect overall, but will not repurchase- I prefer the ELF shimmering facial whips despite the runny mess they can be.
I have always owned powder highlighters and this is my first liquid/gel highlighter I have purchased so I really have nothing to compare it too.
I do enjoy using it over top of my foundation to highlight areas of my face and I apply it with either my MAC 188 or 192 brushes. I have started to experiment with this item by mixing it into some of my favourite matte foundations. I have to say it works great and gives my complexion a radiant and subtle luminosity. I also love adding a small quantity to my body lotions to give my skin a slight glow without looking like an extra from Twilight.
I personally have found this product to have a very nice shimmer without looking overly glittery or obnoxious. The tube packaging is great, but it could only get better if it was a pump. Plus the price is excellent for the quantity and quality. I think I would repurchase this item, but it's kind of been the gateway product that has peeked my interest in trying other liquid/gel highlighters now.
Gotta say the first couple times I tried this, I wasn't too impressed. Applied nicely, felt really creamy, but it seemed to just sit on top of my cheeks (which are on the drier side, so that's probably got something to do with it). But I figured I give it another shot a few days after I second time I wore, but decided I'd see how it looked when mixed in with some lotion (Clinique DDML) and I love it!! I now mix a small dot of each product and it sinks right in, leaving a light, natural pink glow to my cheeks, LOVE IT!! :) I also sometimes put a tiny dot down the center of my nose and on my cupid's bow.
This is an excellent highlighter! It is pink, but not too extremely pink, so I think it would look good on all skin tones. I put some on the back of my hand and then apply it with a stippling brush over my cheekbones and T-zone. You don't need a lot of it, only a little bit more than a pea-sized amount. It looks great either after foundation or under it as a primer. I don't know of many drugstore highlighters, so if you're looking for one this is probably your best bet.
I love this product!! I have it in doll face and it's not glittery at all, just the right amount of shimmer. I use it as a highlighters on my cheekbones & around my eyesockets, and a little big on my nose/chin/cupids bow. Sometimes a little on my forehead too. It's cheap for how much you are getting and I'm sure it will last a LONG time. I also use it sometimes on my collar bone/chest and on my legs to add a little glow if I am going out. I am buying this in Glamazon soon since it's almost summer
I really like this product. I hate any type of glitter on my face since its oily already but my skin and my foundation has been so dull and needs a healthy glow. I know there is a fine line between having luminous/healthy skin but on me it ends up looking oily and shiny with most products. So I tried this due to high ratings on MUA. Just the application of this product makes it a winner, most shimmer products are meant to be used after you apply foundation. I use this as a primer under my Colorstay foundation, and it really provides a glow from within the skin, and then my colorstay provides full coverage, I can still see the luminosity in my skin, it looks natural, and my foundation doesnt look flat. I think this product is a great dupe for Benefit That Gal face primer. This product is a pearly pink, I have NC40 skin, and it doesnt take away the yellow in my skin, pink highlighters make my skin look to grey/white cancelling out my yellow in my skin color. I also use this on my front part of my legs to make them look long. Anyway, its $8 and you get sooo much product to last several years, the only downside to hard candy is they only sell in walmart, and I only go there once in 5 years, which is perfect, this product would probably last me that long, since Im not a walmart shopper.
I'm really enjoying this product! I put it right on the top of my cheekbones and it really brightens my face up. I was afraid of the shimmer highlighting my large pores, but it doesn't.
Definitely recommend this stuff for a brightening highlighter.
This in my opinion is not over the top, def. not glittery, just a little shimmer and glow and I adore it. I usually mix this in with my foundation and it creates and dewy shimmery look that just works!!! After I finish all my makeup I sometimes put a tiny bit above cheekbones for extra glowiness. Very smooth, blendable consistency. It's a very large tube for $6 and you only need a little so it will last a really long time.
This is fabulous for layering under foundation for a dewy look. I find my Benefit's high beam can get overdone very easily and this is very hard to overdo. What i do is apply the Hard Candy primer(either the original, skin perfecting or illuminating) on after I apply my moisturizer. I let it sit for a minute, and the I take less than a pea sized amount of the glow all the way in doll face and apply it to my cheeks, temples, bridge of nose, cupids bow, collarbones and brow bone. Then I use my MAC Face and Body over it and I have a gorgeous, dewy, luminescence to my skin that screams healthy. for $8, you really can't beat this. I also have the glamazon bronze one and it's wonderful too.
