Love, love, love!

My skin is acne-prone and sensitive, so my favorite thing about this primer is it does not break me out.

It also fits my profile -- I'm pale with combination skin, and I love a dewy finish.

This primer comes out an iridescent white color, which when rubbed into the skin, makes me look a little bit like a vampire straight out of Twilight. It's no longer white, but still shimmery enough that I would not exactly recommend going out with the primer on alone. :P

But when I put powder or liquid foundation on, the shimmer disappears completely. It leaves me with a bit of dewyness to my skin, though how much depends a lot on which foundation I use.

The staying powder of this primer is also really good but not perfect. I use a mattifying powder on my t-zone, and after 8 hours, I'm ready to powder again on my nose.

I thought this product would help my skin retain radiance throughout the day because foundation always clings to my dry patches and makes me look dull. This didn't really do anything for me at all. It didn't prolong the wear of my foundation and the radiance didn't show through. It looks nice if you tap it on your cheek bones after you apply your makeup. Not what I was expecting and not really a primer in my opinion.

Hmmm...I wish they made this in a few tints. I will probably use it up as a brow&decolletage highlighter. It is just very, very white.

As far as primers go....PerFekt is waaaaay better. Much more $$ too. But on my skin tone, white highlighter just isn't that great. I am sure if I used it to sheer out a fuller coverage foundation or under a tinted BB it would be good. BUT.....I use ss during the day that has ZO, and needs something tinted over or in it. And at night, I would prefer to only use ONE product instead of mixing or layering stuff.

It's a really pretty thing to own. As a primer, it definately gives a flawless, sheer, natural glow to the skin, and when you put foundation over it, you can notice a difference when your skin is just bare and when you have this on. On top of that, it's amazing to use it as highlighter, especially for daily use, because in my opinion most highlighters just look like too much for school/work, but this one works best for sure.

just tried using it today after buying it more than a month ago, as some reviewers said, the mixture separates a little but i think giving it a good shake solves that issue. this is really good in lighting up your complexion. i think it is expensive, given how little comes in the package. i like the pump, i think it helps get out all the product, however i like the tyoe of pumps that makes the bottom part come uo as the liquids deplete much better, but thats just imo.

i also like to mix in this primer with those products that are way too orange, it seems to lighten up the dark undertones such as the loreal magic bb, and almay smart balance.

This is one of my favorites! I use this everyday. I wear full coverage foundation due to my severe melasma, and really need highlighter to bring life into my face. I use this in the area on the top and apples of my cheeks and the bridge of my nose. It is not full of sparkles or glitter, but more of a sheer, pearl type of glow. A tiny bit goes a long way for me, so it is a decent value, even though it is pricey for DS product.

This product (for affordability and quality) is amazing! It works wonderfully alone or under makeup. It gives your skin a nice refreshing glow. I definitely recommend this product for everyone including those, like me, who have sensitive skin. Another + is the fact that a little goes a long way. I use it daily, have had it for 6 months and am now on my way to purchase more. A secret to getting the most out of the container is to remove the cap completely, use a makeup tool to scrape around the sides and bottom. You'll be amazed at the amount of product left inside!

I can't say what possessed me to buy this product, but I'm glad I did! This is not the kind of thing I normally use.

I've been using it, like the below reviewer, to sheer out my beloved Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation. It works great for that purpose. It makes the foundation less opaque, while giving me a little allover glow.

It IS a little greasy when I wash the remainder off my hand. This doesn't bother my face, but it might bother oily or acne-prone skin. On a positive note, there's no scent. I used to have a Becca highlighter and did not like that it was scented.

It's a little expensive for drugstore makeup, but I only use one pump (LOVE the pump) and at that rate it will last a good long while.

I originally bought this to sheer out my full-coverage, matte foundation (which I use because it was literally the only one I could find that matched my skin *and* accommodated my allergy to chemical sunscreen). It works fine for that, no complaints.

However, I only tried it as an illuminator the other day and it blew me away. I have been using ELF shimmering whip in Lilac Petal for my illuminating needs and didn't plan to switch, I just dabbed on some of the Lumi out of curiosity and HOLY WOW. I'm not sure what exactly makes this so much better, it just seems to be the perfect blend of tone (completely neutral, adds no color at all), shimmer level (subtle pearly glow) and consistency (silky, thin and easy to blend).

I'd heard illuminators being described as "candlelight in a bottle" and this must be what it means. It is SO EASY to create the perfect glow that never looks shimmery or frosty and I can't even imagine how much of the bottle I'd have to slap on to mess it up and make it look obvious. It's more expensive per ounce than the ELF illuminator but it's worth it, and anyway, if my use up till now is any indication, the tube goes a long way.

The water i thought coming out of pump is actually oil. Pumped the oil out until i get the product to come through. It's white shimmer liquid texture that gives sheen pearly glow when applied first without foundation yet. The concern is the oil separating from the product??? Could it be expired or is it ok just shake to mix the product well, i don't know i'm scared my skin might react from the oil.
