I liked this product -it didn't irritate my super sensitive skin, and gave me the right amount of coverage. My skin is usually very pink (red), and this evens out my skin but doesn't make me look cakey at all. Just glowy. I get compliments when I wear it.
I HATE the brush. Will try what the others have suggested, taking the brush out with pliers.

The jury's still out on this product. I bought it for its highlighting function (not in a darker color as a bronzer) in the hope that it would brighten up my face on top of my cheek bones and around my eyes. I'm not sure it's doing the trick, though. I'll probably keep using it (not sure why I'm hoping it'll miraculously start working) but I doubt I'll buy it again. The brush is dumb (as has been mentioned before) so I just squeeze it out onto my finger. I'm a little mystified by all the good reviews (the high rating is the reason I bought it in the first place), so maybe I'm just using it incorrectly or my expectations are wrong (it wouldn't be the first time)

I got this on clearance at CVS and I only regret not getting more!
This gives you a subtle, light, dewy look. I liked the Gold Light because it balanced the redness I have in my cheeks. A little goes a long way and blend, blend, blend for that illuminating look.
It is very easy to pop off the annoying brush, but like another said, make sure the top is clicked to "off."
It lost a lippie because after a few hours the dewy look started to look a bit shiny on my t-zone, nothing a quick blot won't fix.

This is a fabulous product. In lieu of tanning, self-tanners and powder bronzers, I use a small pea size amount rubbed between my hands and apply all over my face blending into my neck. I apply it immediately after my SPF 30 moisturizer on most days, and after my zinc and titanium dioxide SPF 60 on days when I anticipate being outdoors for any significant period of time. It gives me a subtle, natural looking tan and glow, and keeps the zinc sunscreens from looking chalky. I apply my concealer and blush after a few minutes of letting it "settle". I'm not crazy about scented products, but the fragrance fades quickly. Also, I'm usually attracted to expensive skin care and cosmetic products and bought this in a pinch from a local Walgreen's store, so I am more than thrilled about the cost and quality.

I have this in Bronze Light, which was discontinued. I will try this color next, though. I used to use Skinlights lotion, so I was thrilled to see this new version. I mix this with lotion, to give an all-over glow or as a highlighter on cheekbones. A little goes a long way with this color, so I only use a pea-size each time. I like this in the cooler months, sometimes it adds shine in the summer.
Pros: great consistency, SPF 18, doesn't break me out, great color, nice packaging- once the brush is removed.
Cons: fragrance- I prefer un-fragranced facial products, expensive for drugstore

I just got this at CVS for 75% off (!!) and I really like it. I'm very fair so I use this as a liquid bronzer. I squeeze some onto the back of my hand, dot it on with my fingers, then blend with a kabuki. It doesnt make me oily or a anything. My only qualms are the packaging..I hate these stupid brush bottles..and the smell. Its kinda weird.
I probably wouldnt have bought it for full price but if I see it on sale and needed more I'd pick it up.

I just got BL and loved it so much that I had to try Gold Light. I'm so happy I did <3 I love them both but I think I like this one a little bit more. The colors are very similar but Gold Light is darker and obviously more golden. They both are gorgeous. & I ripped the brush off of both.

Man! I love this!!!! I bought this today from my local Target (Australia) for $30 and I am NOT sorry I did. My YSL Touche Eclat pen is going on hiatus for the minute cuz this is the SHIT!. Now IMO this is pretty much the skinlights range reborn in smaller packaging with a brush. It gives my skin the most awesome glow without being hideously shiney or plastic looking. I applied this over tinted moisturizer but I cant wait to mix it in with my foundation or even highlight my face and then apply pressed powder. This is a MUST HAVE. PS - I didn't get it in gold light, I have bare light.

***********I believe this is discontinued.***************
PROS: A lot cheaper than most highlighters. I agree with others here that this must be their replacement for the skinlights, which they discontinued. Soft, very subtle, but still sufficient highlight. Does not make me more oily.
CONS: Still not cheap. Wish they had more range of colors because the lightest one they have, pink light, is too pink for my N15 (leaning to NC) skin. The next lightest one, bare light, is fine, but I wish it were just a tiny bit lighter, but I still love it. Gold light was too dark on me.
APPLICATION TIPS: I just apply lightly with fingers and blend quickly.
USAGE TIPS: The brush, as others have mentioned, just traps and wastes product. (I did as others suggested and pulled out the bristles with pliers....make sure you turn the cap to "off" first!! Then the packaging works fine.)
ALTERNATES: Better to me than Moon Beam by Benefit because it is more natural (Moon Beam is more iridescent.) The "Bare Light" is very close to Moon Beam with about 10 - 20% less shimmer. The "Pink Light" is supposed to be a cheaper dupe for High Beam. High Beam is slightly more frosty.

this is a nice highlighter with a golden shimmer to it. easy to spread and subtle (maybe too subtle?) on my medium, yellow tone tan asian skin. i wouldnt buy it again only because i find using a powder easier than having to dot, dot, dot and spread. i dont feel like the coverage is even when i use liquids. i read all the reviews and agree-that brush would just soak up too much product so i ripped it out with my fingers. i really like the packaging with the on/off switch. very helpful! it was $10.99 at CVS. im not going to return it because its a nice back up to have in my purse. im going to sephora to buy the CD amber diamonds highlighter. that will probably last me yearssss. i cant detect any fragrance and thats a good thing. not bad but not super fabulous-good stuff for ds!

I bought this after using (and loving) the "bare lights" shade.I figured the goldish shade would be even more flattering on my NC30 skin. I actually think the other one is nicer on me! This one kind of blends into my skin so the effect is more subtle. Which is okay, too! This would be a fun one to try to mix with liquid foundation to give yourself a glow. A little goes a long way, keep in mind. Also, I was wiser this time then I was with my "bare lights" version of this: instead of cutting the brush off, which effed up the applicator, I just pulled it out. Another MUAer recommended using pliers, but you don't even need that. Just use your hands and rip that horrible brush out. Pops right out. Then you have an off/off dispenser without a little brush getting in the way soaking up/wasting the product.

I love this!! I was going through my old makeup draws and found the old illuminator's in bare light and golden (over 6 years old!), the bare light was good but the golden was way to dark. I rediscovered my love for illuminator mixed with my foundation and then the bare light ran out :-(. Then I discovered that revlon had relaunched the range in a different package, but when I tried them the bare light was to light and the pink was just not good on my already pink complexion..but then I tried the golden light and it was a different formula and much lighter and is exactly the right formula that mixed with my foundation gives me a glow - amazing! so glad I found this again :-).

I use this as a cheek highlighter and love it. I was surprised by its supreme quality in comparison to similar high end ones in the market that were the same if not worse. I put this on my cheekbones and temples over my tinted moisturizer then put matte blush on top. This is so perfect and just the look I go for. It sets in wonderfully and lasts all day. The texture is creamy and smooth and so easy to blend. I love that Gold Light isn't over the top Goldish. It's beigy with a hint of gold shine and not an obvious ton of bright gold sparkles everywhere. Also love the squeeze tube. I will definitely repurchase.

I bought it at a discount which made it less then $3.00 and boy, am I glad I bought this. It works great. The color is great too. I don't use its own brush, coz I wanna keep the brush clean, so I just squeeze out the amount I need and use a separate brush. I use it on my cheekbones and just below my hairline, and it makes my skin glowy and healthy looking. Will purchase again, without any questions.

welcome back, Skinlights Illuminating Lotion! Now, if Revlon would just bring back the original pump packaging we would be set.

I absolutely LOVE this product!! I bought it in the golden color and initially didn't even know how to use it. But it gives my skin a beautiful dewy glow with a bit of color, so it works as a bronzer as well as an illuminator on me. I use it as a base before putting on my tinted moisturizer or mixed with foundation. When you first put it on the color seems very scary on your face but soon settles into your skin and blends right in to your natural skin tone. I don't know of any other product that has the same effect of being both a bronzer and dewy highlighter for my dry skin. I'm nc40 and love all bronzers and anything that gives my skin a dewy look so this is the most perfect product for me!

This Stuff is AMAZING. I swear, since I've bought it I've used it every single day. I cant live without it!
This gives the most beautiful dewyness to my skin. I put it on around my orbital bone, on my eyelids, inner corners, bridge of nose, etc.. My skin just looks very healthy and hydrated. I put it under my powder foundation.
I hate the brush applicator though. I just cut it off with some scissors I had lying around. Dont get me wrong, the quality of the brush is very nice, but I feel like im wasting too much product with it.
Anyway, dont mind the packaging, this stuff looks amazing. I paid almost 20 bucks for it, so its not that cheap, but Im very happy I got it.
