Shine bright!

This product is so good cause it blends out so easily without giving you chunks of shimmer other powder or cream highlighters have. I wear it underneath my foundation for a subtle glow, over my makeup for regular makeup look, and both over and under my foundie for that glowing, beaming, goddess from the stars look. Try it and I'm sure your inner glowy goddess will love it too!

A blinding glow in a small package

I used to think I would never be the kind of girl to wear highlighter, but after my sister introduced me to her ELF highlighter, I was hooked! So I went on out in search of my own highlighting product. Of course, Maybelline was the first brand on my mind. When I put this item in my cart, I honestly thought it would be so much bigger. It's literally just around 4 inches tall, cap included. I thought I would be disappointed with the amount that it contained, but boy was I wrong. Just a small drop is definitely more than enough to give you a blinding glow! I use it on the upper edge of my cheek bone, my brow bone, and the tip of my nose, and it never fails to give me a beautifully glowing look that lasts the whole day. In love with this product!

Awesome for starters, a little goes a long way

I like how this is so easy to blend. The color is just perfect! It's the first highlighter that was actually noticeable on me. I first tried the NYX Illuminator one but I like this better. It's more watery than the NYX one so maybe that's why it's easy to blend. A little goes a long way for this one. 👌

im blinded

i tested this product out and it is very blinding! if you're a fan of flashy, bright, eye catching highlights then you should definitely try this out but if you want something more subtle i suggest you stick with the powder version of this (which is amazing too) or just tone it down by putting powder on top of it.

I really love highlighters. It has always been a part of my makeup routine. This is my very first liquid highlighter, and I was very excited to use this when I finally received it. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. During my first use, I had difficulty blending it out because it tends to dry up pretty fast. After a couple of tries, I find it easier to blend by using a damp sponge rather than just using my fingers. Another thing that I don't like about this highlighter is that it has too much glitter in it!! I am not really a fan of glittery highlighters because it can make my face look like a disco ball rather than giving it a natural glow. I also tried to mix it with my liquid foundation but unfortunately, the glitters are still very visible. The strobing sticks from maybelline are way better than this. The only good thing about this is that a little goes a long way. Will not repurchase and I might just give it away to someone who is into glittery highlighters.

Glitter glue

Upon receiving this so called 'highlighter,' I immediately tried it and saw very very very minimal highlight on my face. So i applied again and it looked horrible. It literally looks like glitter on my face. Pigments aren't mixed well. Disappointed in this product because i had high expectations for it
