What an amazing little product!

I originally buy this to use it as highlighter, which works wonderfully. It gives a really nice glow.

Lately though, I have been mixing this with my foundation to give my face a dewy look and it definitely works! My skin looks glowy and healthy and I believe it is due to this product. I never use MAC strobe cream, but some people have told me that this is like the dupe of that product.

For those of you looking for a new highlighter to try, give this one a try! x

Wow, what an amazing little product.

i became addicted to this and have been using it every single day since i got it.
i do not wear any make-up because i love a natural look....
i simply smooth this product all over my face on top of any moisturizer or sunscreen that i use.

you can also use it by mixing it with your foundation.

or i use it as a highlighter on cheeks or so.

its a very versatile product but like i said...i love using it all over my face.

its a liquid serum in a rosy-pearly-gloden shade thats full with super fine pigments that magically smooths out your skin complexion and it make you GLOW with amazing sheen.

i normally dislike anything with shimmer in it due to the fear of it looking tacky, but this is in no way tacky.
you cannot see any shimmer once blended on face,
the result is just a super beautiful glistening glow.
its like magic...i swear.

this is one of my favorite products (and that means alot when it comes from me).

plus it smells devine....to me its something in between strawberrys,cream and champagne lol.

i highly reccomend this!!

Wow so pretty! Really perked up my skin which had been looking rather dull. I love that it is white, nicely textured and subtle on my very fair skin (Mac C1/ C2) for the days when you want less intensity or for work. I ordered this off of eBay. Would definitely repurchase and is also great for those 'no makeup makeup' days and you can mix it right in to your foundation or BB cream etc..!

This is a really nice highlighter! But it's a versatile product so you don't just have to use it for that.

When I first bought this I was a little worried - it is quite strongly fragrances so if you have sensitive skin I'd definitely try to trial it before you pay for it, but I've had no issues myself.

This is a pinky/silvery liquid, very runny so be careful with how much product you pour out - and because it's very runny it blends right into foundation (if you have runny liquid foundation though this will become a challenge to apply without making a little bit of a mess)

For fair skin tones I'd say blending in with foundation is a major possibility, but the darker your skin tone gets the less you should blend in, purely because it starts to look like grease if you're not careful, but it's all trial and error.

In small doses this works pretty well as a highlighter for all skin tones - on very fair skin it doesn't show up as much so it's more of a minimalist look, and if you're warm toned you might not like it, because it matches the tone of cool toned foundations.

I like to apply it on my cheekbones, brow bones, in a very fine line under the eye and my cupids bow + chin. You could apply this down the bridge of your nose and on your forehead, but very sparingly so it doesn't look greasy.

If you have oily skin or rub your face at all you might have to re-apply throughout the day, but all in all if you favor the dewy look over matte this really could work for you!

Having been on a bit of a shopping rampage buying liquid illuminators recently and I had tried HP on my hand a few weeks back and I knew I wanted to purchase this. I either blend this into my foundation and it makes a really lovely subtle dewy base that catches the light over your cheek bones/forehead and if you're wanting a more obvious look you can tap a tiny bit over cheek bones and forehead and it looks really lovely. It is subtle but just makes your skin look naturally beautiful! (If I do say so yourself). It does not have any sparkly, shimmery particles so is entirely dewy and sheeny and looks like a slightly pinkish/nude metallic colour to it. The consistency is light and liquid and has a scent to it which is nice and not overpowering. Get a cheeky test of this before you buy perhaps and see if you like it? Would have preferred not such a high price - but with Soap and Glory, I suppose you are paying for the brand. Would definitely buy this product again but I reckon it will last me ages as you only need a really small drop.

My mom bought this for mistake and gave it to me. It sat in my beauty drawer for ages before I actually started using it and now I wear it everytime I put makeup on (sometimes I just can't be bothered).
It's subtle, not too shimmery, not too pearly and you need the smallest amount. I usually put a half a pump on my fingers, massage it in between my hands and dab it on my cheekbones, then what's left on inner eyes, cupids bow and brow bones. I feel like I don't even have to wear foundation with this, just a bit of concealer, some bronzer and my face is done. Super simple, subtle glow that doesn't give away the fact that it's a highlighter.

My favourite liquid Illuminator, I use it on its own, mixed with foundation and dabbed on the cheekbones (on ultra special occasions I use benefits sun beam with it). It's very expensive and in an annoying squeezey bottle, £13 for highstreet product?!?! But I love it too much not too repurchase, it has no shimmer or glitter and would work for a lot of skin tones. Smells lush too. Photographs beautifully, doesn't exaggerate any fine lines or imperfections

I like this highlighter quite a bit, mostly because as a lotion I can use it in various ways. If I'm not wearing a lot of makeup I'll just add a little to moisturiser to brighten my skin up. If I'm doing my usual makeup I mix it with my liquid foundation to create the perfect effect. If I'm doing a full "big" makeup look I use it on top of makeup as well to add highlights on cheekbones etc. It blends really well, and provides a nice dose of light right where you want it.

It is quite pricey for what it is, but you only need a tiny amount so it does last.

I would buy this product again but its quite expensive for all that it does! It adds a glow to your skin and makes your skin more radiant but if you have a good foundation with light reflecting pigments then I doubt this woukd be off any real benefit.

This really is a very nice little product. I usually just buy the basics - foundation, blusher, mascara, concealer - I bought this on a whim and I really was surprised by how much I like it. I would say 13 is a little overpriced for what it does, but it's the sort of thing that I would repurchase if I had a bit of spare money, and you only need to use a little so I imagine the bottle will continue to last me a fair while.

What I like about it is that it is very versatile, if you had good skin you could easily just mix it with moisturiser to get a glowy/dewy complexion. I use it as a cheekbone highlighter, and it brightens my complexion and makes my skin more radiant. Especially good for those Winter months where my skin tends to be slightly drier and less glowy.

All in all I would recommend this product, it does make a positive difference to how my skin looks.
