Stunning

I got this highlighter in the color stunner and I love it. It really blends well with my fair skin but it also gives an obvious yet subtle glow. It is perfect for someone who is just starting to experiment with highlighting just like I am. It isn't too over the top but it is definitely able to be built up. It is very pigmented to begin with so you probably don't need to use a lot. Also it was a pleasant surprise to me that it smells like vanilla, but it is faint and not overpowering. It is absolutely beautiful. The powder is very smooth and silky. However I did notice it does enhance texture, but that wasn't really a problem to me as much. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who is looking into trying a highlighter out for the first time or who likes subtle highlights. It is also at a great price because a little goes a long way. I have noticed it lasting pretty well throughout the day as well. Less

*** Stellar Glow ***

I can't believe I am only the second person to review this highlighter. It's probably because it's pretty new; I did receive it directly from Tarte before it launched on Sephora.com. Overall, this glorious creation is absolutely gorgeous! I know there are so many highlighters on the market, but this is truly one of the creamiest, silky-soft powder formulas out there. Tarte's Amazonian clay formulas are known to be excellent for so many products, so I definitely had high hopes for this one as well. Especially when the description proclaims: "Exposed brightens and awakens the contours of the face for a natural-looking, glow that suits any skin tone. Infused with micro-pearlescent flecks to mimic light bouncing off and radiating the face, this blendable, sheer formula creates a seamless strobing effect. Powered by Amazonian clay, the silky-soft powder provides 12 hours of fade-free wear that’s never heavy or chalky." To be frank, those claims are pretty accurate :) Try it out for the perfect amount of glow-- I'm pretty sure it could work on almost any skin tone. "After all, you musn't be afraid to sparkle a little brighter, darling." Live your best life! <3

Not sure what is going on with this one..

The color is absolutely beautiful and when swatched it is stunning but that is pretty much where the good side of this review ends. When first applied, the highlighter looks really good but I noticed throughout the day the actually pigments in the highlighter fade away and you are left with large particles of glitter in areas other than where the highlighter was original applied. I tried using this several times with different application methods (i.e brush, sponge, finger) but all of them turned into the same chunky, glittery mess. Instead of trying so hard to get this thing to work, I should have just returned it.

I received the highlight in"exposed" and it is so amazing. The texture is very creamy and easy to blend while the pigmentation is great! Its an awesome nude highlight which I totally recommend!
