    It looks good when applied and blends very easy. I suggest baking with setting powder after you apply a generous amount of the product.

            I've been looking for an inexpensive lavender highlight to try out and this one is absolutely perfect! The creamy stick format makes it easy to swipe on in all the right places, and you can go for a brilliant highlight or a subtle glow easily. It blends out nicely, although it can settle a little in fine lines.

              This illuminating stick works great! I use "champaign shimmer" on my cheekbones just to brighten up my face and it adds just enough light and shimmer. It is great for everyday natural looks, as well as highlighting and contouring. Plus, the quality is great for the price. I would definitely buy this again, maybe in a different color!

                  This product was recommended by one of the girls in the store, my last highlighter finally got used up & I decided to give this a whirl. I love the pigment it gives out. It's super creamy, so it's easy to apply. My only down fall is that after a few hours it leaves these strange little spots where the product clumps on my face. Other than that I love it!

                    Love this blush. Goes on very smoothly and blends easily. Lasts all day. I got Rose Petal Pop, have used it with several different foundations. Works well with all of them. I apply before using my setting powder.
