This product is wonderful! It is a thick illuminating liquid that is pink toned in the bottle but shows up like a pearl sheen on the skin. It has shimmers but they are extremely extremely fine. And I'm not just saying that -- these are very fine shimmers & even in direct sun and up close, there is no single discernible shimmer. Meaning, when you turn your face or head, you don't see pieces of glitter that stand out but rather just a cohesive sheen. I find it very thick & slightly difficult to blend & sheer out as a result but it is not bad enough to lose a rating. As a result of this concentrated thick nature, be very careful of how much you use--a tiny tiny amount is enough to do both my cheeks (think peppercorn size). The pump works very well so that you can dispense a very small amount & the bottle is very sturdy. Plus, I love that I can clean & reuse it for foundation!
EDIT: I have used both this as well as the BECCA Shimmering Skin perfector in Pearl and I honestly cannot see a difference. The Becca is more liquidy, therefore easier to apply. However, I feel like the BECCA SSP settles in my lines more so than the Boots does. The shimmers in the BECCA product are more fine & more concentrated but honestly, it costs $41 & this is $13. It's up to you but in my opinion, it looks the same on the face & not worth the extra money.
