Lemme start by saying, I'm NW20. I love highlighters, especially powder highlighters. But I also want to wear gold highlighters. ICONIC London Illuminator in "Original" is too dark for me (dark shadow visible when no light hits the highlighter on my face). But this one is a beautiful, shimmery gold which does not show up when there is no light. Only when light hits, it reflects a gold shimmer. Looks not too glittery but not too subtle. You can either wear it the safe way, by applying a tiny bit. But if you want that blinding result, layer it carefully til you are satisfied. It stays at least 10 hours on my cheekbones, brow bones and inner eye corner. Truly an universal shade though I think very pale people might try it before buying. I also think it's too expensive. It might last many months or even years but over 30€ is too much. 20-25€ might be ok but not over 30€. One strange fact: This golden highlighter is called "Beaming Blush", yet the other shade in "Show Gold" is a pinkish highlighter. In my opinion, "Beaming Blush" was supposed to be called "Show Gold" since it's a golden highlighter. I always struggle when people refer to "Beaming Blush" because then I think of the other pinkish highlighter ("Show Gold") and not this one.
