Gorgeous -- as good as any MSF. I wear this every day, on top of my finished face, and am told all the time I look "fresh" and "glowing." I am 54. it ain't as easy as it once was. . . LOL
Bike riding helps, too. But this is easier. :-D

Wow, this product delivers as a beautiful, silver shimmer highlighter.... totally can't tell from the appearance of the pink strips. The first time I saw this product in the store, I ignored it as a blush... and just recently I watched a youtube blogger refer to this product as "everything she wanted from MAC Lightscapade, a fine, non-chunky white shimmer highlighter", which prompted me to check this out again at Ulta. It is gorgeous, sheer yet layerable, and the pigmentation can rival that of the msf's that I own (I can't vouch for all the other Jane shimmer blushes, this review is only for this particular color). I apply it on my cheekbones, bridge of nose and it's not that subtle, barely there shimmer (which i generally try to avoid)... I actually go through the product two times with my brush for each side of the face to get that noticeable healthy gleam. For about $6, this is a steal I must say... msf's are $30! Get it while it's still available (I went to several walgreens which sold out of Jane products until I thought to try Ulta). The one I picked up was the last one on the shelf, and let's put it this way, I love it so much that I will NOT hesitate to get a backup when I spot it again.

I love this! I wanted to buy well dressed blush by MAC but didn't really want to shell out so much cash for it. I found this blush for about $5, and it's the perfect pinkish-highlighter blush with a shimmer, just like the MAC. Would definitely buy again!

I've had "buy a powder highlighter" on my to do list for ages now, and just kept putting it off. Well, a generous swapper finally read my mind and sent this as an extra. I would never have looked twice at it in store, and that would have been sad, sad, sad. This is a perfect highlighter for my pale skin! It has a little bit of white, a little bronze, and a little plum that all come together to make a perfect, natural, not frosty or glittery highlight shade. I've seen other reviews comparing this to msfs, and I have to say that in my experience of those, there's no comparison. I swapped both my msfs because they were just too chalky and glittery all at once. This Jane Shimmering Blush is much more finely milled. It buffs into my skin and looks like natural, glowing health, not powder. I'm in love!
Note: I rarely break out from cheek products and have not done so from this.
My skin: pale (about nw10), cool toned, sensitive, prone to product induced acne but not black heads or cysts.

This looks really pretty if you put a light layer on your face under mineral or powder foundation. A more subtle glow than if you put highlighter on top. Just brush across cheekbones and bridge of nose, maybe along brow.
Useless as a blush, much too light, but definitely an excellent highlighter - and for a phenomenal price, considering you get the same look as you would with high end highlighters. I also like the warmer version, think it's called Tahiti. More color, more of a bronzed effect, but not over the top - very subtle.
These also make great eyeshadows, what I like is that the shimmer is very fine, not chunky or overboard, so with a light hand, they are good for daytime as well.

OMG HG STATUS!
This is gonna sound crazy, but honestly, if I had to live with one make-up item THIS WOULD BE IT! Why you ask? Because it's a product I can use for my eyes, cheeks, & lips! 3-in-one, ladies! It's the most amazing highlighter - FORGET MAC, girls, go to your nearest drugstore! This is just as fabulous as any MSF, no lies.
I use this for
-highlighting under the brow bone
-contouring the cupid's bow (makes lips look prominent & fuller)
-@ the inner corners of the eye for a brightening effect
-my favorite, @ the top of my cheekbones!
Instant healthy glow ALL OVER where you want it in 10 seconds. This is a versatile product for your eyes, lips, and face! What more could I ask for in a highlighter?
Down to what the actual product is, it's a handy compact case with a flip top mirror on the bottom (with the crappiest PLASTIC bristled brush ever! but we all throw that stuff away anyway!) and the powder itself
is composed of 3 different squared colors: a light cool-pink tone, a light neutral peach tone, & a light rose tone. (They're all super sheer so forget using these colors for blush or eyeshadow. Strictly for highlighting only :) When swatched or applied to the face, it gives off a beautiful, satin, gorgeously shimmery iridescent glow, NOT SPARKLE or glitter. And it won't ever make you look shiny or oily, just amazingly luminous. Oh, & it doesn't deposit much color which is why it's an amazing highlighter, but if you REALLY pack it on, it leaves a cool light pink shimmer. I will never have to step into a MAC counter any day for a $27 MSF, nanny nanny boo boo :)

This is NOT a "blush"! The effect of the Jane's shimmering blush is very similar to the MAC's msfs or the shimmer bricks except it doesn't make my pores look uber enlarged! However, you do have to be careful or you'll end up looking a little greasy. I recommend applying this with a fiber stippling brush. MAC, Coastalscents, Flirt ( Khol's) have one or you can use a blush brush that is not that densely packed. I don't recommend using this with a angle blush brush. And just swirl a bit, tap off the excess and apply it on top of your cheek area for that radiant glow from within!
I actually like the fact that this blush is light in color because a LOT of blushes look dark/ creates a sunburned effect on me. Not that I am fair is just that I have a light olive Asian skin and the green in my skin really bring out any redness in the blush. As a result, I have to be extra careful on applying blush. Wisteria give me this lovely glow along with a hint of coral/ pink to my cheeks and I LOVE it!
Another cheaper/ better DS alternative is the Wet'n'Wild striped blushes ( which are my HG highlight/blush ). These are less shimmery and have matte blush color built in it for those days that I am lazy to do blush and highlight separately. The one that I love is " Catwalk Pink" ( though the texture could be better, "Take a pose Rose" have superior texture)<- check it out if you have are like me. I'll use the Jane for days when I am feeling extra luminous.
SIMPLY LOVE! LOVE the flip top. It's easy and convenient. One reason I might use this more than the Wet'n'Wild ones ( BTW that one is a screw top). There's a brush that come with it but it is quite harsh. Surprisingly, that brush is actually densely packed!
Reg: 6.99 give/take few $; found this on sale for $1.27(?) check your local Walgreen's weekly ad for deals!
I don't recommend this for people that have "mature" skin or really dark skin. Nothing bring out wrinkles more effective than shimmer.

I've tried so many highlighters, it's not even funny. My high end staple: Fresh Satin Lustre. My drugstore staple? Jane's Wisteria. Don't be fooled, this is NOT a blusher. It is an amazing highlighter for my pale skin. Use a light hand and this product will make you look lit from within. I get so many compliments on my skin when i use this. It is also multi purpose. I use it to highlight my brow bone, the inner corner of my eyes, and my cupid's bow. You basically cannot lose with it's dirt cheap price! This beats out so many pressed highlighters that are much more expensive.

This was a total impulse purchase while waiting on a prescription to be filled at Walgreen's. OMG it was so totally worth the $5. It's called a blush but makes the most beautiful, subtle highlighter. Not disco ball-ish at all. Just brightens the face a bit and if I apply my NARS Desire too heavily, this blends it in so well. For reference I'm NC25/N5.

I don't own any other highlighters, so I can't compare, but for $4 this is a great product. As other MUAers have said, it makes a pretty shimmery eyeshadow, and a tiny bit sheered over a cream blush is awesome in terms of a soft natural pink glow on the cheekbones. Sturdy packaging with a nice mirror. Jane rocks. I live in France half of the time, and if I show this and other Jane products to my French friends (no Jane in France, and much higher prices for drugstore makeup plus MAC, BB etc. are 50% more) they are speechless at the quality/price.

This is pretty shimmery, but a good highlighter for cheekbones none the less. I feel like this looks waaaay better than any MSF, and its hella cheaper too. It makes my blush pop in a really good way. Perfect for summer.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I really liked this product. I normally use MAC but for some reason this blush was calling to me in walgreens. I agree with the other reviewers, that this isnt much of a blush but on great highlighter. Looks great on top of my pinks and plums blushes. the packaging is ok, it would be better without the mirror and brush. They are useless and just take up room in my travel case. Other than that this is a beautiful product and I would get it again. I think I may even get the other colors.

This is a basic shimmering highlighter. It does impart a pretty and light glow. This did what i thought acapulco glow by WnW would do ,but didn't.It has gold,mauve and lilac which would compliment many skin tones.I probably wouldn't buy this shade in particular again ,because I use highlighters only in teh evening or special occasions ,but I want to try peony .Janes blushes are a great and HE comparable .

I applied it after my bare minerals foundation and ended up taking it all off. I was really disappointed with it because it just showed up like lilac pigment on my face, I looked like an alien. However, I will say that the colors, used separately make really great eyeshadows. Perhaps I'll try one without the frosty lilac to see how it goes. I'm a lola (as a latina, it makes my eyes pop when used as eyeshadow.)

i got this blush with a $2 off coupon at kmart. after trying (and loving) jane's shimmering bronzer i just had to give this blush a try. i applied it to blushless cheeks to find... nothing. a little shimmer, but that's all. this compact has mauve, baby pink and pale gold blocks that form a mosaic, so i expected a little bit of a pink color. i was completely bummed! i had such high expectations for this thing. i decided to not give up on jane, she's been with me since high school. i used another blush (mark cameo glo) with a regular blush brush then dusted jane's wisteria blush on top with my flirt skunk brush. WOW! i'd finally found something to give a pretty shimmery-sheen to my cheeks (like what you expect from mac's MSF but without having to pay a zillion $$ for it on ebay.) i also like to use the pale gold squares to highlight under my brows. staying power is amazing, and the pan is pretty gigantic, so it'll last for a long time. for refernce i'm PPP/auburn hair/blue eyes, but this will definately work great as a highlight/shimmer on most skintones.

Wisteria is not really a shimmering blush - it's more like a highlighter as others have mentioned. It's really quite pretty in the pan - it has a checkerboard design with pastel pinks, yellows, etc. I was thinking that I would get *some* color out of it because it's labeled as a blush but there was no color at all - just shimmer. The concept of the packaging is great with the special compartment for the brush and mirror but the brush is not very useful (the bristles are too stiff so that they "kick up" a lot of product but don't make it easy to blend.
I already have other highlighters so this really isn't anything special. I ended up exchanging it for Peony.
For reference, I have light skin with neutral to warm undertones, MAC NC 25 to 30.

first off, as a blush, this product is horrible. it has barely any pigmentation, but as a highlighter it's great. it goes on a shimmery cool pale pink. stays nice, is smooth and easy to blend. cool PPP, brown hair and eyes.

Wisteria is not a blush but a highlighter. It gives your face a nice shimmer like many highlighting products on the market. For $5.99 the price is very good and the product is cute to look at. It's more shimmery than the MAC Lightscape MSF that came out in Dec, 2006. If you are looking for a shimmery highlighter than Wisteria would be a good chioce.
I don't use the brush or the mirror that comes with the product so the packaging is too bulky for me. But otherwise for $5.99 this is a good alternative to department store highlighters.

So Jane has created Shimmering Blushes with the same concept of the Shimmering Bronzers. They have stripes and checks of different color. $4-$5 and appear to be a permanant addition to the line. They are all variations of pink for whatever reason, and come in 2 lighter shades and 2 darker shades.
Wisteria was probably what appeared to be the lightest of the 4. It contains a checkboard pattern of peachy beige, light icy pink, & what looks like in the pan a deeper rose shade but in reality is just about as light in application as the light icy pink. Combined together all that is created is a high shimmer effect with very little pigment.
Unfortuantly this is not even as decent as the Shimmering Bronzer concept. The pigment is way too light and the formula is veering off on the chaulky side. It is almost too shimmery for a blush, even for me, someone who normally loves shimmer or at least a little bit. Can't say I am blown away by this, and can't even say I'm necessarily glad I'm tried it. Definitely I product I think you can pass on and not feel like you're missing anything.
