Love love love! Best highlighter ever! Not a bronzer? It really finishes off your makeup! I use it day & night and it just makes your skin glow! You only need a little so compact will last for ages, i purchased a few back ups just in case it ever got discontinued. Highly recommended, I have all 3 colours in this range and love them all.

I purchased this in Australia for $30, which is ridiculous, but the quality of this product makes up for that.
It's technically sold as a bronzer, as there are darker shades, but this shade is definitely more of a highlighter.
This gives an amazing glow without being 'sparkly'.
The overall packaging seems strong and the presentation of the product itself is visually appealing.

My skin is super dull now that it's fall. This gives me a glow. I use it all over my face because I need the boost some days. It can easily look greasy if you over apply.

his is one of my HG product.
Actually I don't use it as a bronzer but as an highliter.
The texture is incredibly soft, creamy and pigmented and I prefer to apply it with my finger than a brush.
I can't see anybody use it as a bronzer 'cause is extremely shimmery and light.
It doesn't contain glitter, it's only a champagne color powder perfect for the ligher complexion.
I've seen this compare a lot to Mac mineralize skinfinish in soft and gentle.
I own both of them and I don't think they're dupes.
Soft and gentle is more pinkish with glitter, the prestige one is more on the yellowy side.
I think this is an incredibly beautiful hightler, the one that i reach the most, but you have to use with moderation otherwise you can become a discoball because of its reflecting power.
The packaging isn't the most beautiful but I can deal with it.
This product is sell in two other shades, both too dark and orangy for my skin even as a bronzer.

Such a beautiful highlighter - particularly for very fair skin. It's certainly not a 'Bronzing Powder' though, which they have marketed it as.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
I am the fairest fair (lighter than NW 15) and I love this a lot!
It gives you such a pretty shimmer, makes you look radiant and fresh, especially when used in the under eye area or on the cheek bone.
High quality and long lasting without big chunks of glitter.
You only need a little bit.
Affordable. Got it at Ulta for about 10 bucks.
I have sensitive skin and it did not cause any problems for me.

I am so glad that I found this before deciding to shell out the $28 for the MAC MSF in "Soft and Gentle." This is exactly what I was looking for in a highlighting powder! For reference, I'm about an NC20-25, oily/combo skin. A few blogs I read compared this to "Soft and Gentle," so I had to give it a try.
I'm not sure the exact retail price of this. Fairly inexpensive. Definitely much cheaper than MAC. Most of the shops on eBay had this for around $10, but the best price I found was on Amazon (2 for around $14).
I had the Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder in 'Brighten' that I used as a highlighting powder. And while the it does leave a nice natural-looking sheen, it was a little bit hard to apply. It would take a while to pick up on the brush., and you would need a few good swipes to have it show up on your skin.
But the Prestige "Pure Shimmer" is so much more finely-milled. Doesn't feel chalky at all. And the payoff is much better than "Brighten." It picks up very easily and the finish is beautiful. It's advertised as a mineral bronzing powder, but I mainly just use this to highlight my cheekbones. It has a nice golden undertone to it, but it doesn't leave my complexion looking orange or ruddy. Those with VERY fair skin may be able to have this show up more as a bronzer, but for those with light-medium to darker complexions, this is a great highlighting powder. I love that it isn't just white shimmer. The golden-peach color blends into my skintone so nicely. It looks very natural, and it doesn't look like I have glitter sitting on my face.
It lasts well throughout the day, and hasn't caused any breakouts on my acne-prone skin. It doesn't have a particular scent to it either. The packaging is pretty much the same as Revlon's; square compact, black holder, and a clear cover. I like that I can see exactly what I'm reaching for before opening it. And it isn't too bulky, so it travels easily. Note that this does not come with its own brush or mirror.
I think this may very well be my HG highlighter. It's inexpensive and very good quality. If you're lemming "Soft and Gentle," trying this first could save you some extra money. Highly recommended!

It's an OK highlighter!! sometimes it is just a bit to powdery and can sit on fine lines that I don't have...!!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I really like this! the shimmer is so pretty! It's slightly peachy golden depending how much of the more "peach side" u use. I think it's only good to highlight cheekbones and eyes and it gives a very natural pretty sheen. But because this has fine glitter putting it on to highlight the cupid's bow probably won't give me effect i want. However I'll use my MAC pearl for that (which is also very very pretty however doesn't last that long on me) I said I won't buy it again because i can see this lasting a very very long time for me. And if it does run out eventually it's not HG status enough for me to want to buy it again.

Amazing product! Give your skin a natural glow! Love it!

I have never bought a highlight before but decided to try this one. It is very pretty on my fair skin. I apply on my forehead, the bridge of my nose, on the tops of my cheeks and above my lip.

I'm NC25. This was 50% off at Rexall's, and it was the only way I could justify picking it up because it's normally $15~$18. I picked it up for about 7.50, I believe.
It's creamy, golden toned highlighter. It definitely gives that life to the face.
However, I wasn't paying attention to ingredients, and this has the ingredient I'm sensitive to! Will not be picking up more.

Wow! I'm light-medium skinned with neutral warm undertones, and I adore this highlighter. It is so finely milled that the iridescence it leaves on the cheekbones, inner eye, and brow bone is a unified glow instead of the dreaded chunky sparkle. The color is a warm yellow, champagne, slight peach color. HG!

This product is AWESOME! My search for the perfect highlight is over! This just gives my face a glow-sort of a pearly/satiny finish. It does NOT have noticeable chunks of glitter like some other highlighters I have tried. It is also great for the inner tear duct of the eye. Plus this looks great with my paler skintone. I could not be happier with this product :)

I bought this product after trying Mac Soft & Gentle and not loving it. I didnt get much if any pay off from it and i'm nc 15! So i seen this in boots and decided to give it a try. And thank got i did .. It brilliant. The amount of compliments i have had on my lovely "glow" . I just use it on my cheek bones and it really makes a diffrence well worth the 13.00 euro it cost as suppose to the Soft & Gentle that was way more expensive and did nothing for me.

Really nice highlighter with very fine shimmer. Looks great and also tones down some bright blushes.

I originally bought NARS Albatross but found this worked better for me. For reference, I'm NC25, and I found that the Albatross just looked like shimmer on my face. The Pure Shimmer shows up better on my face. Both give off a golden shimmer but the gold is more noticeable in this.

I did not like this product, it was a bit too glittery for my taste, I like my highlighters to leave a soft sheen to my skin and this did not. Also if you apply too much it can look powdery.

I bought this because Lollipop26 praised it on one of her YouTube makeup reviews. I came by it for €3 off - €10 as opposed to normal €13 - and decided to give it a whirl.
I thought it would be a natural looking bronzer as it looks like a golden bronzer in the pan. But it's not remotely a bronzer, it's a highlighter. That's OK though, I'm very pale (N4) and needed a good highlighter.
For pale girls, this gives you a really pretty candlelight glow. It's a great dupe of the MAC Mineralize highlighters. It's very subtle, and indeed if you want a more obvious evening shimmer you have to ditch the brush and swipe it on with your fingers.
This product looks like it's gonna last forever - you get a lot. And since you can use it as an eye highlighter too I think it was a really good buy.

Because I live in Australia I had to fork out over thirty dollars for this product so on that note, reading the other reviews I think I will be buying online next time...
Besides the stupid price tag (I actual could have bought MAC for around the same amount) it is a really good highlighter, gives a healthy glow and is great to carry in your purse and dab and blend with your fingers if you are feeling a little dull...
It is a really really nice power well pigmented and moist however I wouldn't recommend wearing it without a primer as it seem to accentuate my pores without it. I am impressed that it is wholly mineral based and Talc free which is more then I can say for MACs mineralise skin finish
Besides that it really needs a mirror in the compact!
