IT Cosmetics Hello Light Illuminating Powder ($24.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a warm-toned, medium beige with a frosted finish. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is lighter. theBalm Mary Lou-manizer (P, $24.00) is lighter. MAC Star! (LE) is similar. MAC Belightful (LE) less gold. Chanel Mouche de Beaute Illuminating Powder (LE, $80.00) is darker. bareMinerals The Shining Moment (LE, $26.00) is a little lighter. Bobbi Brown 24 Karat (P, $42.00) is more frosted, darker. See comparison swatches.

This is supposed to give a “true airbrushed look that works on all ages.” It’s also supposed to give a “natural radiance” while blurring pores and imperfections. It’s actually a very chameleon-like product, because in the pan and when photographed, it looks almost golden beige, but I noticed that at times, it looked almost showed as a silvery-white gleam on my medium complexion–ashy in a way, so it might be better suited for fairer skin tones. For a less pronounced sheen, I would recommend a stippling brush and a lighter hand. It doesn’t have glitter, but it has very, very fine shimmer that translates into a highly reflective sheen. The only way I could get this to apply and not look metallic was with a fan brush and use very, very little product. It didn’t do well on drier skin, as it emphasized the imperfections. I don’t feel like this blurred any pores or imperfections on my skin at all. The texture is incredibly soft and finely-milled, almost buttery, and really feels like silk. I love a good highlighter, and there are so many I love and reach for, but this one felt like three times the work to get just right. Once on, it lasts eight hours on me.
