Hate this! Way, way too glimmery and shimmery. It applies too heavily and leaves you looking fake and trashy. Don't buy it, there are better products out there.

This is the worst bronzer/eyeshadow/all over face glow I have ever used. It's a three in one makeup product. (: If you are looking for a product that delivers a fake and Barbie like face, then this is for you. I bought this with a gift card I had to Target and I hate it. I used it for the first time and liked it. Then the next morning I had a breakout all over my nose. Eww! I used it for another few weeks and just stopped because all I noticed was I was getting more blemishes. I stopped using the product and immediately my face cleared up. I am never going to buy this again and I am most likely going to burn this product.

Wow!! I really didn't expect this product to be this good!
I use as a highlighter/blush and as eyeshadow. I find that using this with sponge tip applicator(esp the white/gold colors) work best for me. Great purchase for the price and the quality is very good.

Amazing. I don't really know what this glimmer is supposed to do, but I love the combined colors and I use it mainly as a contour or blush! I usually just swipe it sideways, and then apply it diagonal on my cheek to use it as a highlighter at the highest part of my cheeks and then the darker part underneath to contour. Once I'm done, I also sweep the brush over my nose and forehead. I like it--the packaging could be nicer for $7 but not bad for how great the color looks on me! I'm NC25 FYI. Will repurchase!

This is my HG highlighter/bronzer! I got this from CVS for 7.49 but it's cheaper in other stores. The packaging is really nice and sturdy, not one of those cheap o' packagings that break when you drop them. The pigmentation is on the sheer side, so it works best as a highlighter. But you can also use it as an eyeshadow or a bronzer. I'm so happy that this highlighter isn't one of those super shimmery or glittery ones. It's very subtle and gives a GORGEOUS glow to your whole face. It's great for summer! There are no cons to this product that I see, so I highly suggest this to people who really like a glowy summer look!

I was never a fan of shimmery/frosty eyeshadows until I tried this product. For eyeshadow use, it contains 5 stripes of color that can be mixed and matched (base, highlight, contour) depending on the desired look. I also love that it can be worn in a professional setting when applied lightly or can be built up for a dramatic look for going out at night.
The packaging is nice and fits well in a makeup bag without taking up too much room.
Also I think this product might be on its way to being discontinued since I've seen it on clearance at Walgreens but not anywhere else... yet.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these! This is my 2nd most favorite in the glimmer stripes. I can use as a blush if I sweep lightly (I'm PPP) and it gives me a nice color with a bit of shimmer. Whne I have a fake tan I can put a bit more on. But what I really love is that I can use 4 of the 5 stripes as eye shadows. This kicks some BB shimmer bricks butt!

i love the glimmer stripes. i am a fan of them in general, but honey is my favorite. as is with all of them, the shimmer is not super-frosty or glittery. it is just the right amount to give you a healthy glow. it doesn't magnify pores like some of the chunkier msfs. it's relatively long-lasting. also, i guess it's pretty cool that you can use each individual stripe as eyeshadow, although i never do.
what really wows me about this product is the color. the color of this looks so good on me (nc20). effortlessly good. it's like a light pinky bronze, and i am not a fan of bronzers or even bronzy tones. for a supposedly warm colored chick, i tend to think warm colors look bad on me a lot. but this really does remind me of honey when i wear it. it's ethereal, and natural, and at the same time gorgeous.

At first this really wasn't doing much for me. But once I scraped it a bit I started getting a lot more pigment. Its a nice soft bronzer for my pale skin. I like the shimmer because it adds a bit of a glow. Overall not bad. And the packaging is pleasing to the eye which is always a plus.

Great value for the money. This highlighter is nicely pigmented and imparts a barely noticeable shimmer. I'm a very light PPP with cool undertones, and on me, this particular color can be a little too brown/bronze, but only if I'm too heavy handed in its application.
Truthfully, I like this stuff better than a couple Bobbi Brown shimmerbricks I've tried (Pink and Rose), but not as much as the Apricot Shimmerbrick, which is slightly sheerer than the Glimmer Stripes and without the brownish tinge.

Great everyday blush/bronzer. I have NW 25 skin with some redness and most blush looks too pink or obvious on me, but this is perfect. And cheap. Just enough natural color for day, easy to use. Case is sturdy and easy to open.

I like this because I dont wear blush and since this is so light and just gives me a little glow, it works. I wouldnt use it if I wanted tons of color and it just gives me a slightly gold and pink color. I used the top 4 ones which is white,pink,tan and gold. I use it sparingly though cuz if you put too much or use the bottom brown color it can look orange on fairer skin.

POWDER: Great quality for the price. Soft, easily blended. Thereís a slight fragrance while in the package that reminds me of the MK makeup my mom wore in the early 80's...you canít smell it once applied.
COLOR: The bottom 2 brown shades are very orange on my PPP skin so I can only use the top three colors (white, pink and a soft tan)...which I can also use on my eyes. The strips are too skinny to drag a blush brush over and only pick up one color. I mostly use it as a blush although I was hoping for a soft bronzer. Shimmer is about right...plenty of it but not too over the top or metallic looking.
PACKAGING: I donít like the packaging, a slim sturdy but kind of cheap looking compact. I could get past this if there was a mirror and small brush included, but theyíre not.
OVERALL: This little baby just doesnít work for me...too many things I dislike and not enough that I like. Price is nice at around $6-7, but I have other products Iím in love with. I'll use it up but I wonít repurchase.
ME: nw15, light green eyes, dark brown hair.

A sweet swapper got this as an extra for me. It can be used as a very subtle bronzer as the last 2 strips of the compact are pretty dark. When I use the top 3 stripes, it works as a light blush shade, or as a highlighter. When I layer more, it is a light pink on me. Not much shimmers on this, it gives a soft, glowy look once applied.

I'm in love with this product. Wow. It's awesome. Makes my cheeks just a little glow-y with a touch of color. Very natural and pretty. I really am porcelain so I think that it wouldn't work for anyone beyond a medium skin tone, however, the Glimmer stripes line has a lot of colors, so I'm sure those with darker skin can find one to work for them. EDIT: Last year I was totally in love with this product. . .now I'm a year older and my skin is different. . .that much shimmer on my cheeks just doesn't work for me now. :( Oh well. Great product for a PPP who can wear shimmery cheeks though. :)

omg i love this! i got it for $6.99 @ CVS which IMO isn't that expensive. there are five different "stripes" and you can use them individually for eye/cheek colors or swipe all of them for an all over face glow. IMO these are dupes of the bobbi brown shimmerbricks and the MAC MSFs, but at a much affordable price. i think i'll be stocking up on these - they're perfect for getting that nice, glowy skin look!

This is a great product! Looks very natural on my pale skin tone! The only thing is that the bronze stripes don't really show up, and is not the prettiest shade of bronze on me, but the light stripes are really great for highlighting and make my skin look all glowy!

I love this!! I like how this product is so versatile...I use it mainly as an eyeshadow and a highlighter for my face. The colors are soft, shimmery (not TOO shimmery though), and light...they're flattering on just about anybody. I don't have too many complaints but one thing that is kind of bothering me is that when I use it as an eyeshadow, the color looks far too pinkish, even if I'm not using that one pinkish shade:/
When I use it as a highlighter though, I first put on blush, then use a brush and swirl it all in the product, then brush it over the blush. It makes my skin look really pretty and glowing!:) And you don't have to use much effort to blend it in very well, either. You can even use your fingers to do the job and it'll still look good. I will repurchase:)

Very soft, some MUAers have complained about them shattering. As you can see in the picture, the bottom right color of my Pink Glimmer has broken off. I have the GlimmerStripes in these colors:
and I think they're all wonderful. Honey can be used as a VERY SUBTLE bronzer (I'm NW20), but for me it looks best on the eyes. I believe I paid $6.99 each at CVS. Subtle shimmers, nice colors, looks good on cheeks or eyes. Sold!
