      Apply lightly after foundation for a luminious look. Can be easily overly applied which causes appearance of caked on makeup.

          Comments about ULTA Illuminator:

          This was my first highlighter I tried, and decided to go with a cheap one at first. I found this product to be O K, because although it looks nice at first, it wears off fairly quick. Another thing was that after a bit of use, it broke! Made a huge mess, but I looked it up on online and tried the method where you crush it up an de mix it with rubbing alcohol, and then press it back in the container- it actually worked! Overall, I gave this three stars because it just didn't seem to meet my needs for a highlighter...

                    If you are looking for highlighter this face powder could double for one. Do not make the same mistake I did and buy it to wear as a face powder. I looked like I had spread Vaseline all over my face, it was a weird look.

                        All of the shades are designed to be universally flattering on all skin tones. :-) If you want a stronger highlight, go with a lighter shade such as Brilliant Diamond or Yellow Diamond. These are great for spot highlighting certain areas of the face. For softer, more diffused highlight/glow for all over application, go with a shade like Pink Diamond or Radiant Diamond.

                        Our Highlighting Brush would work perfectly to apply it:
