staying power

longlasting

i love the formula, i love how it is in stick form, which is really innovative, at first look, it looks like deodorant stick, but it is very easy to use, blends very well, i love how it is very highlighting, it is one universal shade, which suits every skin tone, one can through it in bag and dont have to worry that it may break, it is very long lasting after 8 it hours it started fading, on my dry skin, im completely in love with this

- Sephora User

i topped this with becca's champagne pop and it was stunning and lasted all night

- Sephora User

consistency

creamy

i love the creamy texture that makes it easy blend and lasts all day

- Sephora User

it's creamy consistency helps the product glide on effortlessly, it's blend able and suits all skin tones as it has flakes of pearl, golds and silvers

- Sephora User

blendability

blends well

a little product goes a long way, when blended it gives off a glowy effect, since it's buildable you can make it wearable on an everyday occasion

texture

smooth

it went on nice and smooth on my face

- Sephora User

i have very sensitive skin and my skin felt so soft and smooth from using this product

- Sephora User

weight

lightweight

i'm not usually a big fan of cream highlighters but this doesn't feel heavy on my skin and is very blendable or buildable depending on the type of coverage you prefer

- Sephora User

initially i was drawn to the super cute and chic packaging, but soon realized this product gives me a beautiful sheer glow and it's lightweight and perfect for this humid summer

- Sephora User

fallout

does not have fallout

but upon using this i immediately fell in love, its not messy in the least, no fall out and blends seamlessly

- Sephora User

what i like the most is that i can take it on the go and not worry about a powdery mess

- Sephora User

pigmentation

sheer

it is so easy to apply and gives a beautiful glow in a sheer natural way

- Sephora User

i am not a fan of glitter on my face so i was weary at first; however, this glow stick goes on sheer and just shiny enough to add a level of freshness that no make up product has ever done

Wow

I'm not big on heavy face products, and the Glistening Illuminator glides on easy and blends in without feeling thick. It leaves a delicate glimmer, which is what I prefer. I'm mid 30's - so the last thing I need is to look like a disco ball.I love the sleek packaging. It has a really easy-to-blend, creamy texture.

Doesn't blend

I was so disappointed in this. After reading all the rave reviews, I took the plunge, but after a few uses, I returned it. The consistency is not even and goes on patchy (see photos). I applied both directly from the stick and with my fingers, which is how I would apply any other cream highlighter. It was so blotchy when first applied and I had to work really hard to blend it. Once it was blended, I thought it was a pretty effect. But I don't think I should have to work that hard for $40+. If I had gotten this for free like others I probably would've liked it, but not for the price.

Buildable Glow

I've been testing this out for almost a month and I really like it. I find that swiping the stick directly onto my skin can add a little too much and can also disrupt the foundation under it. I like rubbing a little bit into my finger tips and then I pat it in to the areas that I want to highlight. I've also swiped a brush onto the stick and I find that works well too, but it is more subtle. It's easier to just build up and blend using the fingers. I find that this does last pretty long on the skin. I don't feel the need to top with a powder. Overall, I really love the product. I find that a little bit goes a long way and I like that it offers a glow that just looks like healthy skin. It would be great on any skin tone because it just sheers out to look like a glow. It doesn't appear to have any opaque pigments. Once sheered out, you can see the micro shimmer in it, but it doesn't look like glitter. I've included some pictures below of the product on my face as well as a full on swatch and a sheered our swatch.

Fool-proof highlighter

This is a great highlighter! Super easy to use. And completely unlike any other highlighter in my collection. It doesn't impart any actual color -- just gives the skin a beautiful sheen. Think of how your skin looks if you just dabbed a little vaseline or facial oil to the high points of your face -- except without the slippery oily goopy effect. The gold and silver shimmer give you the PERFECT pearlesque glow that would work on anyone (no more accidentally picking the wrong highlight shade). No chunky glitter. Just etherial, glowy goodness. The stick is super creamy and easy to blend (no stripes or streaks) and doesn't leave any other color behind (no champagne/gold/pink highlight). I don't know how they did it, but this also sets exceptionally well. It's creamy to the touch but when it sets, it's not wet or sticky (even though it kind of gives your skin that sort of wet dewey glow). I've been wearing it in the humid Florida summer and it stays put. It's also buildable. Take it from subtle office-friendly glow, to magical creature status -- whatever you fancy. Interestingly, it's still sheer enough that I found it difficult to go overboard with it -- while still being able to amp up the glow factor. I'm really impressed. And for the price you are getting a lot of product too. The packaging is good too. Sturdy, makes it easy to use the product, and offers great portability. I would recommend.

Highly pigmented, flattering highlighter

This highlighter is a beautiful pearlescent color that features both silver and gold sparkles with a frosty sheen. Despite having olive toned skin, which usually doesn't look nice with frosty colors or products, I found this product is flattering on my complexion. This is a well pigmented product. I don't find myself having to swipe a brush or finger over the stick multiple times in order to see the illuminating effect of this highlighter. I usually only have to swipe once or twice to get the perfect amount of this highlighter. This highlighter's formula is creamy and doesn't leave a sticky or tacky residue. When applied on top of my regular BB cream (Garnier or Missha) I find it a little difficult to blend only because it adheres well to my facial makeup. When applied without primer or BB cream underneath it is easier to apply and blend. I suggest using a blending brush with semi-stiff bristles to more easily facilitate the blending of this product. This does have a little bit of transfer but no fallout (like most powder highlighter products). This product has a slight chemical scent but I don't find it to be strong or offensive. Luckily this product's formula is long lasting. When I created the nighttime looks they were for evenings in which I had dancing in humid conditions in mind. This highlighter lasted the entire night without reapplication. I didn't find that it had faded much was is good news for individuals who cannot often reapply or touch up their makeup. « less

On the prowl for a new highlighter - preferably one with not a single particle of glitter. Ideas?

Glow sticks of other cheaper brands could work too! Most highlighters have glitter so it’s hard. Glow sticks aren’t great but don’t have glitter
