My favorite highlighter! It's all glow, no gold streaks or heavy glitter. You just need a tiny bit of this to get a fabulous glow and with the amount of product you get, it's going to last forever. It can get heavy if not applied with caution! Can also be used to turn any matte shade into a shimmery shade.

This is the most highly pigmented highlighter I've ever used. You barely need to use any in order to get a beautiful golden glow to the face.The pan is also large so you really are getting good value for money, too! I have very pale skin, and although this product is very pigmented it still suits me where other tinted highlighters can make my face look dirty.

The colour of this highliter is a light gold, so if like me you have indian/ asian skin, it may look a little too bright so I recommend using this sparingly. The product is highly pigmented and with the right brush, it blends out beautifully to give a really nice soft finish. In fact, it gives a nice dewy glow that most highlighters (even expensive ones) don't give. Its such a great value product too as you get quite a lot product and the price is very affordable. I wish this would come in more colours because I really do consider this product as one of my favourites.

This has become my favourite highlighter of all time. I've set aside far more pricey products like Guerlain in favour of this. I applies beautifully and you can take it anywhere from very subtle to a far more "full on" look if you want (not my style at all but if you club a lot or go to a lot of "events", it's perfect). This also doubles as an eye shadow or eye brow highlighter. And the price is had to beat too. Great packaging, with a mirror - something you don't get with some higher end highlighters.

I've never had a highlighter look so greasy on me! I have extremely dry skin, so it was a shock for me to see what looked like oil after applying this. I think it was a mix of my Asian skin with cool skintone that made it appear that way.

If you blend this out, it looks great but you really have to blend it out because there is so much shimmer. My favorite use of this is as eyeshadow, I use this and the Betty Lou Manizer to contour my eyes; the combination of the two results in a great neutral everyday look. I love how large the compact is, I can use this product liberally with no fear of running out. Although be careful with it, my Betty Lou started to crack near the hinge. I would say this is a powder version to a yellow toned champagne-y highlighter that Benefit would have.

I bought this a few months ago after reading and hearing all the great reviews. It's a great product if you know how to use it. I haven't really ventured to much into highlighting so for me it's a very big eyeshadow. I did try this a few times as a highlighter but I felt it had to much shimmer for my liking. I do however enjoy it for under the brow and the inner corner of my eyes. One thing I do have to mention is the packaging, it's a great looking compact with a big mirror great for throwing in your purse.
