It's a very liquid, water-based highlighter that dries down quickly after it's applied, whether patted onto lips or cheeks (it can be used for either purpose, per the brand). The glass bottle has a dropper that dispenses a moderate amount of glitter, which I'd describe as medium in size--bigger than shimmer and sparkle but not super chunky glitter. I was surprised at how well it applied onto cheeks, including over base makeup, as it did not lift it away, and it did not seem to sit in my pores either. It dried down and stayed on well with minimal migration over an eight-hour period. I did feel like it felt a little clingy layered over lip products (I tried the liquid lipsticks from the same release by Smashbox), though. I also found the applicator harder to work with, though I am at a loss as to what might be better. The bottle needs to be mixed thoroughly as the glitter settles to the bottom of the bottle.

This liquid shimmer potion acts as a weightless sparkle topper for lips and a shimmering liquid highlighter for face. Vlada calls it “drops of heaven!” It instantly adds light-capturing luminosity and glitz to any look. Try it over your favorite Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick or anywhere you want a pop of radiance.
