great drugstore product!

purchased this in pink, because i was thinking of mixing it with my foundation (if i bought yellow it would enhance my yellow undertone even more and i wouldn't want that). first things first, very pigmented. if you were to use this as a highlight, you would only need the size of 1/4 your fingernail at most. it is sparkly and really shiny and cute, i was so impressed. second, it's great mixing with foundation (at least for Mac and L'oreal Infallible). played well with the base and i looked bomb wearing it. it's great, buy it! you will not regret it. :)

Good duper for coverx enhancing drops

I bought this in pink and it compliments my morena skin tone so well. It stay on my face all day and still shines really bright even when i set it with makeup. I use this as eyeshadow as well i just put this on my eyelids and set it with powder (but just this alone it doesnt blend well with eyeshadow). I like and i think its good dupe for my coverfx enhancing drops since the swatches are pretty close!!

I got a free tube from my friend who didn't really like this, but I tried it and FELL IN LOVE. The glow this gives is beautiful! It doesn't smell foul like other cream highlighters that I have. You can use it sparingly to create a more natural look or you can use to make your highlight so blinding, they can see you from outer space!! I really love the pink shade and the "wet look" it gives! LOVE!

Glow girl

Some people like to use glitter on the face. Kudos to them but I definitely can't pull off that look. I love the fact that this highlight can give you a glowy look that can go from "makeup what makeup this is skin" to "is your face reflecting the sun" (well not that blinding but you get the idea).

Can be natural, can be blinding

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT SO MUCH!!! I can use it mixed in with my foundation when I want a more dewy look and I can use it as a highlight on top of my foundation. A little goes a long way with this--if you use a little, you can get a natural highlight. But if you build it up, you can definitely get a blinding highlight with this! It is also really easy to blend! It is a little glittery though so you have to keep that in mind when you put a lot.

subtle yet looks good

This product works fine already, so there is no need to buy those high end highlighters for this one works as nice as those expensive ones. The shimmer of this one looks natural and subtle as to compared to other cheaper highlighters. But comparing this to the stick version, the other one definitely is better in terms of application, for the stick one is easier to apply. :) Over all, this product seems to be the best drugstore highlighter for me.
