I've never had an illuminating cream before, just a little illuminating powder in a contouring cheap set because I didn't get its potential. Then, I've seen this Revlon skinlights used in a video tutorial of the most famous italian MUA, used as a primer for a dewy look, and fell in love with its lovely effect. Unfortunately my foundation is too thick, so I can't rely on this product for the glow effect that I thought I would have loved to imitate, but I don't mind: used on strategic spots, like in the eyes' corners, on the brow arch etc, it really works, providing a sweet and healthy effect. The cream itself is quite thick and looks kind of shimmery on fingers, but once applied it is plain and just provides what it states. Once squeezed it looks pale pink but becomes transparent on the face (depending on your skin colour - I guess this suits lighter skins better). I suggest to blend it as better as you can because it dries quite fast, otherwise you might risk to see it swiped in a weird way (I don't know if it makes sense, english is not my mother language). It has quite a long lasting effect, I could notice illuminated spots after 5-6 hours (and I usually use just 2-3 drops).
The packaging is sleek and elegant, pretty thin, so it can fit in a corner of your beauty bag.
I guess I would buy this again, but since I use it about 2-3 times a month, it will last forever!
