Although I am not usually a fan of liquid highlighters I wanted something to mix with other products. I found that this works really well when I mix it with my concealer. It really brightens my eyes as it gives them a lift without to much sparkle, just a beautiful healthy glow. A little goes a long way with this product so for the price I found it quite reasonable.
This is a really great product for days you don't wish to wear a lot of makeup, just to give your skin that oomph it needs.

The best way to use this is by mixing it with foundation and put it all over your face, and then to dot it on your cheeks and nose and such. I wouldn't rub it in because it could rub off the rest of your makeup, I would pat it on top as a finishing touch. Don't use too much though! I tried this today and my skin glowed!

I would not repurchase this product simply because I don't think it's the best highlighter out there. I find it looks nice on my skin but fades pretty quickly.

I found that this product didn't have any chunky or visible glitter. It blended well the three different liquid foundations I rotate. Also works to make semi-matte foundations more luminous if you add a drop to foundation and mix together. Buildable for a more dramatic shimmer. Works well with fingers or foundation brush application. It looks pink in the bottle but I didn't find that it read particularly pinky on my skin. Didn't run or dramatically fade on me, but not transfer resistant.
Dulls down with even a light dust of powder over it.

Very disappointing.... It does;t look natural on my skin, doesn't blend well when applied over powder and make my large pores looking even more visible.

I'm not too big a fan of this sadly. In general I love The Body Shop, but some of their makeup products have been pretty disappointing. For reference I am NW15 and because this has a subtle pink tone to it I thought that would suit my skin quite nicely.. The packaging is okay, it does the job and is simple.
It's not a bad highlighter per say, but I am someone who wears powder on top of my liquid foundation and I'm not sure if that is the reason but it just didn't look too glowy. I tried applying it a couple different ways the most acceptable way was a tiny little dot on the back of my hand, and using my finger tip sort of lightly tap it along my cheek bone - then blend. But I was just not satisfied. I find it looks too unnatural maybe a little too shiny instead of a subtle shimmer. I prefer powder highlighters in general and will stick with my favorite: Hard Candy in Pin Up. (that's a baked blush but many use it as a highlighter!)

Not too much of a review yet because I haven't had it for long, but compared to the Tinted Glow Enhancer (which no longer is available at my store, so it may be discontinued, replaced by this) it is much more pink. The Tinted one is a bronze colour with larger shimmers, where as this highlighter is a lot more subtle natural. Will post comparing swatches soon!

While there seems to be alot of controversy whether this product is actually any good, IT IS! In very very small doses, this highlighter works just fine. Use very very little when applying and you'll find that it works great as a highlighter. If you're still having problems with it looking very noticeable, Apply it on your hand from the bottle, then use a finger to put on you're face, and cover with a bit of foundation still if needed. Definitely does wonders!

Great product. I had tried Benefit's before this one and I found to much too pink. But this one is just pink enough, and shiny more than shimmery. It is great worked on foundation (do not dust powder over it afterwards), patting it on in a big "C" shape on cheekbones and brow bones... It makes the tired skin around the eyes seem much younger, healthier. Really a great "cheating" product to take years off skin, better than piling on foundation. At 13 euros in Spain, I really recommend it, I like the packaging too, very convenient and simple.

Originally when I bought this product, I hated it. It showed up as nothing more than silver shimmer on my skin and was streaky and unnatural. I think the key to applying this product is to use very little of it and blend it in really well into the skin. It does have a lot of shimmer in it so I tend to only use it if I'm going out at night. I'd say save your money because there are tons of better highlighter out there like the NARS Albatross or Dior Amber Diamond.

I've read about a million reviews praising Benefit's Highbeam as pretty much the best liquid highlighter out there, suitable for all skintones etc etc. Unfortunately that isn't available where I live.
So I read up a few random reviews (not on MUA) comparing the TBS Radiant Highlighter to Highbeam and decided to buy that. I was NOT disappointed.
Most reviews on MUA are negative regarding this product, but I think it's a lovely highlighter. Absolutely fantastic for brightening up the face, especially on days when you don't feel like applying much makeup or look tired/sallow. I apply very lightly over my cheeks and sweep it up to built intensity on my cheek bones. That gives a very fresh, dewy look to the face.
There is shimmer in this product, but it is not visible. I've worn it from dusk till dawn and not needed any touch-ups or whatever. I also splashed my face with water and the dewy/glowy effect remained.
In daylight, it looks like you are glowing from within - a very natural type of glowiness (not a word, I know). In the evening, it looks very lovely in the soft light and gives a great, illuminated effect.
I've noticed I get noticed a lot more when I go out wearing this. Most days all I need to create a look to last me all day is this product, an eyeliner and, if I feel like it, a lipstick.
It has done me pretty well in summer, but I feel this will look best in winter light when the sun isn't too strong.
This was my very first liquid highlighter and I really like it. All I need is a tiny bit to make my face glow - literally less than a pea-sized amount. Best for dry/combination skin, I would say.

I'm really tempted to compare this highlighter to Benefit's High Beam because I really saw no difference when I grabbed this at The Body Shop and I have yet the time to compare. But for me, this highlighter didnt even show much on my cheekbones when I applied it. And with my primer, it would roll into little specks that really bothered me. Won't be repurchasing and will move on to another better highlighter.

I wanted Benefit's High Beam but I bought this instead hoping it would be the same. It's a bit too glittery/shimmery for my liking and it seems to dry out my skin a little. But it's alright I guess. It does highlight well, albeit in a not so subtle way. It works best if you apply it with a damp sponge rather than spreading it on with your fingers.

This product DOES NOT WORK. Period. No glow or shine. Mine didn't even give off a sliver tint or anything after being blended into my skin. Thank goodness I got it on sale because for something so pathetic, I'd not have been happy paying full price.
With that said, at least it doesn't smell bad.

I love the body shop, i think they generally carry a handful of great quality products and the odd terrible product. there i've said my defence. but this hilighter is definately one of them and when i used it the first word that came to mine was "rubbish". i know its terribly harsh but the quality and colour of this was a huge disappointment. i agree with a previous reviewer who said this is just silver glitter and nothing else. thats exactly how it finishes on the skin, its not pearlescent or a creamy pigment with a slight shimmer, its just straight up glitter and no pigment. i can't blend this in to hilight because it just sits there, on top of my skin being all glittery and therefore, annoying! if you want a hilighter that looks natural and sophisticated, stay clear.

I don't really like this product... I had my eyes on it for a while, but when I finally got it, I was kinda dissappointed.
First of all, the tube looks good and the product looks good in it. But once you open it, you have to be so careful not to squeeze too hard, because the product really just flows out. Not nice.
Once you're over that, the product does not, in my opinion have a beautiful "highlighting-effect" to it, rather than highlighting, it just makes me look shiny, not at all glowy. So no, I will not repurchase this, at least not this particular shade. I got it in number 01, so maybe I will try another shade...
But overall, this is not a great highlighter, not for the "candle-light glow", but if you like "I just came from the gym without a shower-shiny", then this is your go-to thing.

Good product! It blends really well and there are no big glitters, it's just sheen and it looks really nice under the foundation. It creates a lovely natural glow. You can also mix the highlighter with your liquid foundation and apply together.

This is a gorgeous glowy liquid highlighter. It's nice and creamy but it blends so easily into the skin. It looks extremely beautiful without being glittery or overly shiny. You can even use it if you're a person who uses powder foundation or mineral makeup. Just make sure you add a sheer layer of powder to set it over the top. Definitely one of my HG products, it's amazing.
