This product is really nice. The formula is really nice and it’s almost like a gel feel; not exactly a cream, definitely not a liquid. It gives a really subtle highlight to the face(I love it on my cheeks). It’s not super shimmery and it gives a nice iridescence. The gold shade is really beautiful and super universal because it’s not dark or warm toned but it’s not too light because of the gold base. Even on the darkest or fairest skin this would give a nice glow or sheen. This comes in one other shade, pearl, which I think is more suited for fair to medium skin tones.

it feels really nice on the skin. It’s not greasy or oily and it doesn’t add oily to my skin. It doesn’t make my oily skin look or feel extra oily because even though it goes on creamy, it dries to like a powered finish. This brightens up the skin and complexion beautifully. It’s a natural glow that makes the skin look healthy. I highly recommend this as a great, solid highlighter.

I am not, however, a fan of the packaging. It is easy to travel with; you can drop it in your purse and go but there’s a click button on the bottom that distributes the product and if you accidentally push it, the it comes out from the brush. I am also on the fence about this brush applicator. It’s cool  and different and makes it really nice for quick application but it’s not really sanitary, especially for a makeup artist. You would have to apply it to a clean palette then apply to the client. And you can’t see how much product you have inside.

What do you think?
