The Celestial Skin Liquid illuminating emulsion is a blend between a gel and a creamy weightless fluid and is designed to glide effortlessly onto your skin for makeup perfection. The long-wearing formula is designed to last 12 hours and can be used as a primer, foundation or even a highlighter.
How to use: Use all over face to moisturize and cover. It adds a delicate highlight wherever it’s placed. If using solely as a highlight, lightly apply to cheeks, brow bone and décolleté and blend with fingertips.
Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Skin Liquid Illuminating Emulsion ($52.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “long-wearing formula” that can be used as a “primer, foundation, or even a highlighter.” It says it can last as long as 12 hours. It has a lightweight, thin, liquid-y consistency with a warm, golden sheen. The powder version of Candlelight The Celestial Powder is much more beige, less golden/yellow. See comparison swatches against some golden powder highlighters. The most comparable shade with a similar formula that I could think of was Giorgio Armani No. 10, which is liquid as well, but it is warmer, darker. Other formulas that have similar consistencies would be MAC Lustre Drops, MAC Strobe Liquid, and Tom Ford Skin Illuminator.
