Gabrielle

JD Glow Gabrielle Pressed Powder Illuminator ($16.50 for 0.28 oz.) is a rich, medium copper with strong, warm undertones and a golden sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was powder-like but with some slip to it.

The texture was lightweight, thin without being dry or powdery, and had good adhesion to bare skin while blending out nicely along the edges. It didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture, which is always nice. The color lasted well for nine hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$16.50/0.28 oz. - $58.93 Per Ounce

The highlighter formula runs nearly opaque to opaque with moderate to intense luminosity. A couple of the more metallic shades can emphasize skin texture when worn at higher coverage levels, but for the most part, the glow was intense, shiny, and reflective without emphasizing my natural texture.

The consistency felt smooth, lightweight, and thin without being powdery or too firmly-pressed into the pan, so it wasn't messy to use while picking up readily with a typical highlighter brush. There was a creaminess and some slip to it that made it feel almost like a cream-powder but was definitely a powder product. The highlighter applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with ease, and lasted between eight and nine hours before fading on me.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Not that I need it, but let me just say how stunning this looks as a blushing bronzer on your lt.-med. complexion! I can only imagine how gorgeous it works as a highlighter on richer skintones!

Beautiful as always eye look and the cheeks are lovely too! I find this a unique colour for a cheek product. I don’t have anything quite like it.
