I have this product in Moonstone and I love it. I use this as a blush, and it gives a soft rosy glow, similar to MAC msf in Petticoat. A little goes a long way, so I've had this for a long time. I sometimes forget it's there, but I'm always impressed when I come back to it. If I ever use this up I will repurchase.

I have the tinted Glow Powder in Citrine. When I first saw the sample baggie I was a unnerved by how yellow it was, but on application it adds a nice glow to my warm tan. I love how this powder isn't a glittery mess, and you need very, very little of it at a time. I use this along the tops of my cheekbones and my brow bone, and the effect is subtle but healthy. I've also done a light dusting across my entire face when my makeup looked a little flat and the result was a nice fresh glow. Whenever I finally run out of my sample amount I will definitely buy a full size.

I really don't like this. I wore it and my mum asked if I were sick. 0.o. I'm ppp cool toned and this just makes me looked washed out and not glowy.

I'd never really used a highlighter for more than just goofing off before I found this. I received a sample of "sandstone" crystalline glow with an order and tried it one day as a brow bone highlight along with my usual (neutral, work-safe) eye makeup. This stuff makes a *wonderful* brow bone highlight! The next time I used it I tried sweeping it along my cheekbones up toward my temples and down my nose. I was curious about whether this would make my blush look funny, but it didn't. My skin looked less matte without looking oily. It was like a finishing touch to my makeup that day.
I don't know if this is something I'll use on my cheeks and nose regularly, but the way it works as a brow bone highlight is worth paying full price anyway. I've tried "sandstone" with several different eye makeup looks and it blends in nicely with everything. I can't wait to try out something with more color, like "opal" or "moonstone"!

I actually use this all over my face for a dewy finish, though it's a highlighter. Still, it makes my skin look healthy and glowing. I'm so happy that it's slightly pearly and not glittery like other highlighters I've seen.
I have been using Meow Cosmetics for years and I absolutely love their products. This one is no different. :)

This is a beautiful powder. Its transparent and has this pretty warm glow. I dont think you ever have to worry if you are putting on too much, because any application is good.

HG highlighter for me. I was searching for a way to get that glowing dewy look without A. using liquid foundation and B. turning into a gross oil slick with gigantic pores. I use mineral foundation from Alima of Meow cosmetics and although I love everything else about mineral makeup, I hate how it gives such a matte look which is so dated and unnatural. This is my miracle and gives me flawless looking skin. I love how it contains absolutely no glitter or sparkle chunks and instead imparts the softest natural looking soft focus dewy sheen on skin. I dab a little under eyes, on the top of cheek bones, down the bridge of my nose, and in the center of my chin and forehead and then blend well with my Alima 25 Foundation Brush. It lasts about half the day, but reapplies well. This is one of the few luminizer/highlighter products I've ever used that works with oily skin and large pores. It never looks oily or accentuaties pores. Actually, it seems to make the pores around my nose under my eyes appear smaller. I could see how this could be far too white on some people, but on my super fair skin (Alima Cool 2), the result is purrrrrfect. ;) I'll purchase for the rest of my life as this is definitely HG for me!

I hate being the party pooper. I sooo wanted to love this, but, I don't. the product itself, the packaging, the consistancy and the easy of use are just fine, but the results of the powder itself are very average. I appreciate that this indeed does NOT have any glitter nor sparkles. but it doesn't have hardly any sheen either. it just looks "white". even when blended well. I will stick with my Aveda Shimmer Accents, as it really is a wonderful highlighter.

Love it! Gave it 5 lippies because the product it self is perfect, but the packaging isn't so. Still, I LOVE it!

Love love love this stuff! Adds a healthy, subtle glow without any sparkle or glitter (and doesn't make me break out!). Also, it's priced well and seems to last forever. I haven't made a dent in my full size, but when I do run out, I will most definitely buy it again! :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE this! After spending weeks on end searching for the perfect glow, I have landed upon it! Definitely my HG now... I used to love Revlon Skinlights back in the day when Revlon made it. I hated how Revlon used a bunch of chemicals in the Skinlights though... so I was trying to find something just as good but natural. I have the original, the sandstone, and morganite samples. I am loving all of them but the morganite is particularly awesome. There are, as others have said, NO SPARKLES in this, but a beautiful sheen instead. I would use this on my cheeks, under my browbones, cupid's bow, lips, even as an eyeshadow. I am SO HAPPY I finally found what I was looking for...

I love Meow's original Crystalline Cat Glow Powder, as well as the tinted versions. It gives a nice glow to my features without any garish glitter. This just gives a nice highlight. I have the original shade, Morganite and Quartz. I really like all 3.

Absolutely love it! The phrase, "A little bit goes a long way", describes this perfectly.
I dab a few speckles of this bad girl on top of my blush (Marvelous by Lumiere) and blend it in. And voila! Beautifully radiant cheeks~ It looks so natural and truly glows. Meow has another hit with this powder. Mmm catnip for my cheeks

Love this product. Feels and looks great - no sparkles just a lovely, soft and luminous glow. If you want to try any product by Meow Cosmetics definitely try this one.

Unequivocally, my HG highlighter product. After trying many highlighters that were either greasy, too shimmery, or had chunky glitter particles, this finely-milled, pearlescent powder was a godsend. It gives my asian NC30 skin a healthy skinned lustre without looking flaky and shimmery. I only use a very minimal amount to achieve that effect. I brush it over a blush to highlight the top of my cheekbones, and the bridge of my nose. It never makes me looks greasy like many liquid and cream highlighters do, or flaky and glittery like powder highlighters. I've already bought 3 full-sized backups of this because it works so well for me.

I found BE's Clear Radiance etc, way too obvious and shiny rather than glowy. This stuff is just incredible if you are looking for a subtle glow rather than a disco ball sparkle. Check it out!

I am shimmer and glitterphobic, and for me this highlighter is a dream. I don't see a speck of shimmer or glitter, just a lovely subtle glow/sheen. I use it daily (down my nose, along the top of my cheekbones and on my forehead) and it makes my very dry skin look a bit more alive, but never OTT. I also often use it over matte blushes to give my cheeks a bit more glow. I am quite fair (Stila A/10 watts) and it is translucent on me, unless I mistakenly put on too much (when it can look a bit white). Because you only need a small amount I would think this will last for a very long time - I've been using it daily for about 3 months and I've hardly made a dint.
One more thing - although the 2nd ingredient is Titanium Dioxide, and my skin usually breaks out with large amounts of this, so far I've had no breakouts. Not sure why, but I'm not complaining!

This multi-purpose highlighting loose powder from mineral makeup company Meow Cosmetics is hands-down the best highlighter I've ever tried, and I have a drawerful of them.
Cat Glow comes in a medium-sized (4g) plastic jar with a sifter inside. I had a bit of a problem initially with peeling the plastic off the sifter as there was no easy-pull tag and I had to get a pair of scissors to help out - perhaps Meow could think about adding one in the future? Apart from that little hiccup the sifter is fine and the jar is able to be sealed tightly so no product escapes.
The product itself is a pearlescent whitish powder that goes on fairly sheerly. It's extremely finely-milled and has absolutely no sparkles, glitter particles or anything that makes me look like a teenager (I'm 28) or an oil slick (I have normal skin). That in itself sets it apart from 95% of the highlighters on the market. It just leaves a beautiful, radiant glow on the skin; a sheen rather than a shimmer or sparkle, if you like. I use it only on my face but I imagine you could use it on any body part you wished. I apply after doing my blush either with a brush or my fingers on my temples, nose, top of cheekbones, browbone, anywhere the light's going to hit. You could probably also use it as an eye brightener too. There's a lot of product in the jar and it will probably last forever as hardly any powder is required to get a gorgeous glow. I'm fair-skinned (NW25-30) but I can see this working on a variety of skintones and colours because it's quite sheer and is pretty neutral on, being pearly rather than gold, silver, apricot, champagne etc. I recently used it on a couple of friends in the same age group as me and they fell in love with it too, having the same issues as me re highlighters and sparkle/glitter/shine.
Cat Glow is attractively priced at US$12.95 (samples available for US$1.00) and although shipping takes about 2 weeks from the US to Australia, it's well worth the wait. I've paid many more times that for high-end highlighters that don't do half as good a job as this. Would definitely repurchase; in fact, I might stockpile this!
Ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide.
