Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula is a very warm-toned, light gold with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.43 oz.
Lisa Eldridge Crystal Nebula Elevated Glow Highlighter ($38.00 for 0.43 oz.) is a light, yellowy gold with fine, lighter pearl and a soft, luminous sheen. It imparted a glowing, almost wet-like shine to my skin that wasn't overtly shimmery but was more intense than a lot of other liquid highlighters on the market (which are often very sheer and lower in pearl).
It had a sheerer base, but the intensity of the glow was more moderate, and the intensity could be built up by layering the product; layering achieved an almost metallic radiance that didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. The formula did live up to its "smoothing" nature when left on bare skin for about three minutes to set, and it was smooth, reflective, and flattering on even my drier skin.
The consistency was fluid, lightweight, and thin without being too watery, though I did find it easiest to work with it from the back of my hand as it ensured I didn't over-apply and had better control over the area of application. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Elevated Glow Highlighter is designed to add an amplified luminous glow to the high points of the face whilst whilst simultaneously delivering some serious skin benefits and a subtle lifting, tightening and smoothing effect.. An ingenious glow/skincare hybrid with subtle skin tightening and smoothing effect. Elevated Glow contains lots of small, multicoloured shimmering pearls in a sheer, lightly tinted and skin adaptive base. The level of shimmer on the skin depends on how much you apply so start with a small dot and build to the desired level of ‘glow’ you prefer.
