Laura Geller Ballerina Liquid Gelato Pillow Top Illuminator ($26.00 for 0.85 oz.) is a soft, medium rose gold with warm undertones and fine, golden pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which was only opaque just-squeezed out of the applicator, but the watery texture made it impossible for it to actually stay that way once I started to blend the product out. I tried applying a second layer on top with minimal success. As long as the product was blended on the skin, it dried down for the most part. I don't recommend applying with the sponge applicator, especially if you use any base products, as it will absolutely pick up foundations and concealers, which then muddies the highlighter a bit. It had a subtle sheen that was more noticeable in person than in photos (almost looked like nothing was on my cheeks in photos) with little color (against my skin tone). The faint glow lasted for seven hours on me.
It's supposed to be "sheer" liquid version of the brand's powder highlighters. There's a sponge applicator on the end, and you squeeze the product out onto it, which was the aspect of this product I liked least. I think a simple squeeze tube would have made more sense and been just as practical--it would have worked well for getting product out for highlighting key areas of the face as well as for mixing with base products. It's much harder to mix with base products that way it is packaged. It was fairly sheer on the skin (as marketed), but it might have been in that range of "too sheer" for some. It also worked well as a base for powder highlighters or mixed with base/foundation products.
