This isn't a terrible product, but probably one of my least favorite. I purchased it as a Pure Radiance set that came with a brush.
For me it provides a bit TOO much shimmer, and application isn't anywhere as easy as compared to The Love Affair highlighter that I think does a much better job. The packaging could also be a bit easier, since I would have either too little or too much come out.
However, it has dual purpose in that I've used it as an eyeshadow, and it has good staying powder.
I won't be repurchasing it again as it didn't work well for me.

This highlighter just did not work well on my tanned skin. It accentuated every pore and wrinkle and gave my skin a strange metallic sheen. I had it for years then tossed in the garbage. I recommend trying this product before purchasing. I am otherwise a huge bare minerals fan.

I got Pure Radiance in a holiday set, and used it in combination with Bare Escentuals Lovely blush. Pure Radiance is a great highlighter to put over your cheeks, down your nose, and across your forehead or jawline. It's very shimmery, so I don't think I could wear it during the daytime, but it'll make you photo-ready for a night out.
I have to say that I do hate the packaging though. The jar is so tiny that when you screw the lid off, glitter gets everywhere. It's a mess. Just be careful when opening!

This is my favorite product from bare minerals. It really brightens up my face and gives me a "healthy glow." You shouldn't use too much though, because it can be too shimmery.

I wasn't looking for all over glow. I use BE Medium foundation and it provides plenty of dewiness for me. I wanted Pure Radiance to highlight my brow bone, which it does nicely. It is a neutral slightly pearly color that is not over the top for me, I am 48 and need to tone down the glitter/sparkle but I was not ready to give it up all together!

OMG. LOVE. in a tiny jar with a black screw on cap.
I got the mini version of this with the BE "The Total Package" kit (full size BE redeemable voucher with small sizes of this, the mineral veil, cleanser, primer, and mascara) and alone I thought it just made my pores look huge and my face like a disco ball (read: it's shimmery).
HOWEVER, when I sweep this lightly with the edge of my brush across my cheekbones up to my temples over a brush/bronzer, I look positively like I am a glowing angel. I swear to god. It is quite amazing-- I just hate the jar, I get glittery sparkles all over myself.
In the pot it looks like a shimmery mauve/taupe/tan goldish colour, but on the face somehow it just turns into GLOW.
Going to buy the full size of this, ASAP! For reference, I'm BE Golden Fair/NARS Fiji/NC 20-range.

I love this product! I sweep it down my nose above the top of my lip and on my chin. Pure Radiance give my face a great glow!

I love this product. I use it over my Beauty blush when I want a little shimmer and I love it by itself for a no-blush look when I'm going to be outside and doing 'sporty' things. I have also used it alone as an eyeshadow with a pink palette. The effect is very soft yet a bit warm. The shimmer is not glaring in the least. So many times a pinkish highlighter will have undertones of blue in them. Not true here. The effect is "pure radiance".

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product. Not too long ago (maybe a few months back) I wasnt really into the whole glowy face look. I thought it made me look "shiny" but I decided to give this a try one day because it came in a kit I had purchased. OMG I love the way this lights up my face. I put a little swipe down my nose, on my cheek bones and then a little on my forehead and chin. It makes me look alive and glowy without every looking shiny. The foundations I wear are matte formulas so this helps counteract that by putting a little more life into my face. Definitley a repurchase. I have this in the color Pure and the Clear Radiance...Both are awesome but I have been reaching for Pure more as it has a nice bronze tint to it- Clear it more of a pink tint (not sheer) but it barely shows up- it just makes your face look glowy and heathly. These are HG and I use them everday after apply my foundation!

Seriously pretty! Received this in a bare minerals kit for Christmas. Everytime I wear this I get compliments. Really makes your skin glow. Wish I had known about this great little item earlier. You need only a small amount and looks fabulous swept across cheekbones, forehead and décolletage. Lovely, will for sure get this again.

An amazing high quality product! I love it! It will last you forever because there is alot of it (the tub is pretty much full) and you only have to use a tiny amount. Gives a gorgeous glow from tiny gold shimmers. It's just a beautiful product!
The only thing i disliked was the pacakging because the 'excess' dust in the tub would fall out but I just poured some into a container and so now it's much eaiser to manage. I recomed the flawless face brush for it :)
Anoter must buy :)

This is a great multi-tasker product. Can be used as an eyeshadow, a blush and even a lip gloss if you dip a balm in it. Love the color.

I ordered this with high expectations. I felt that the powder looked chalky on my skin. In my T zone where I can get a little oily, the powered did not help much to control the oil. The subtle shimmer wasn't really my thing.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
I use gobs of this stuff, because it practically matches my skin tone. Just gives a super-subtle shimmer, not glittery. It other words, it doesn't look like makeup, it just looks pretty. Almost a dewy-glow,i think.
Perfect as eyeshadow base color, brow highligher, top of the cheekbone hightligher, all-arounder.
I find that guys like it as well (not on themselves, of course!)

Probably the most wearable of all the BE Radiances for daytime. A warm soft carmel gold, very sheer, minimal shimmer. Can be worn alone, can be mixed with foundation without changing the color, or the way I love to use it, mixed with a little mineral blush in any color and dusted across my cheeks, concentrating on the apples...I don't have cheekbones, which I suppose is good because rounder faces age well, but sometimes I long to be able to wear blush the way cheekboned people can...
Wear is pretty decent, may have to do one touchup during the day, depending on your skin type and the weather. A little goes a long way, so a jar of this lasts for quite a while.
I love the BE Radiance line, best highlighters out there for the price, some with more color than others, some a little more sparkly than others - but they all give you a soft shimmery flush that looks sooo pretty.

love! i sweep this all over my face for a gorgeous glow. perfect mix of shimmery pink and gold. a little goes a reallly long way with this stuff, so it lasts forever. i haven't tried yet, but i bet it would look great as an eyeshadow too.

This is the first BE product I've ever used an entire container of, other than the foundation. I just adore this multi-tasking Radiance. I am relatively fair (Fairly Light in BE) with warmish undertones, and I use this Radiance for almost everything. Dust it on cheekbones, dab a bit over lipgloss, brush over collarbone and shoulders, and over eye primer, it makes a gorgeous, neutral, just-shimmery-enough eye shadow. I can't get enough of this stuff and it's really hard for me to overdo it. I do not think of it as a bronzer, but sometimes will apply over light bronzer for more glow. Or just over a cream blush. Basically, whatever I wear under it, Pure Radiance makes even prettier. Kind of a peachy note to it so I think this is probably better for warmer tones.

This is a beautiful highlighter particularly for warm skin tones,.You can wear this on top of blush or cheekbones for a natural luminious glow. The color is a warmlight subtle golden light peach. Pairs great with with peachy pink or neutral blushes.As a great, everyday natural look, I normaly wear this over BE's Golden Gate blush (warm subtle apricot) - sweeping Golden Gate on cheekbones to temples and then apply Pure Radiance above slighly higher on the cheebones across to my temples with a tapered blush brush.

I didn't like this. Although I should have known that it would be wrong for me. The undertone of this is slightly pinkish, which is not good on my skin. Im half korean with slight yellow undertones so it's a no go. I bought this based on a few reviews that it was a nude/ neutral type, obviously they were wrong! So do not get this if you're warm toned, as this won't look great on you!

This is a little too shimmery for me, I prefer more a more subtle look, but if I'm going to be out in the sun all day, or more casual and not at work, its fun to use and makes me shiny and glowy. I just have to be careful to go light on it, because on older skin, it can highlight all the things you don't want highlighted! It's a deeper color than clear radiance, and I don't get the cakey shiny look with it that I do with clear, even if I do use a bit too much. I don't know that I would get it again, but it lasts so long, I'm not sure I'll have to buy another pot of it anytime soon.
