Overall rating: The Pure Luxe Web site describes this shade as "soft creamy vanilla with subtle silk finish." I gave this product five lippies for its subtle sheen and the subdued brightness it brings to my brow bone. Perfect brow bone highlighter for all eyelid shades, particularly shimmery ones so you don't end up with OTT shimmer. Perfect for work wear. The color is pale pearl ecru. I can see teensy, sparse shimmers in the pot but not really once it's applied. As a previous reviewer said, this is somewhat sheer so don't overblend. This is a real winner in my book and might even replace my Bobbi Brown matte Bone eyeshadow! It's similar but 1/10 of the price!
Where did I buy this: Pure Luxe Web site.
Price: About $1 or so for a 1/4-teaspoon sample.
Packaging: Standard screw-top sample pot.
Would I buy again: Yes!

A really really pretty, subtle highlighter. It's a great basic; it blends well, the color is a neutral off white, and the the slight sheen it gives is perfect for everyday. Don't buy this if you're looking for tons of sparkle! And it helps if you apply a moisturizer to your skin first so it will last longer. One bad thing I found about this (and other loose powders) is it's fairly easy to blend them and then they seem to disappear. Especially with a color this light. It does show up, just don't over blend, and you'll be fine. =]
Overall, a very nice color that i would recommend to anyone.

This is a great basic highlighter or allover base shade. A soft cream color with just a hint of shimmer. I don't find it similar to MAC vanilla pigment at all; MAC vanilla pigment is much more shimmery, and has a gold/pink interference. With a base underneath, this lasts all day with no creasing or fading.

This is a matte version of MAC's vanilla. It's a nice, blendable highlight for the browbone when you don't want a lot of shine.
