        Great product. I am more on the oily side, so sometimes highlights accentuate my oily skin, but this stays on like perfetion. It is not chalky or blotchy. Very blendable with buildable coverage. I use it alone for a subtle glow, when I'm not wearing much makeup or pair it with Becca Champagne Pop.

            Very natural looking u actually use less product with this color than gilded honey. I always have to layer tons of gilded honey for the gold to really show up.

                I use this product everyday to get a nice, natural-looking glow. Depending on the look I'm going for I sometimes need to put on a couple of layers to get it to show up a little better, but overall I love this product. It works well with my skin tone and perfectly completes my everyday look.

                            Each shade is very universal and looks great with any skin tone, however Charming Pink and Peach Glow are much lighter and brighter than Gilded Honey and Ballerina. If you would like to sculpt your cheek bones and add light and a brightening effect, Charming Pink or Peach Glow will work best for you. If you want that true shimmery golden glow, choose Gilded Honey. Ballerina will probably be a bit dark for you, it'll be more like a rosegold bronzer. Enjoy!

                            I would definitely go with Peach Glow! It is much lighter than Gilded Honey, so if you would like it to truly lift and bring light to the high points of the face, choose the peach glow. The Gilded Honey will add luminosity, but it is a bit darker and much more golden. The Peach Glow will sculpt your features a little better. Enjoy!

                            Honestly, you can't go wrong with either choice! All shades are suitable for all skin tones, so I would recommend trying one shade and then adding the other to your collection. If I had to choose, I would say start with the Peach Glow. It is a little more peachy as opposed to pinky. My clients with Hazel eyes look amazing in that shade!

                            Our Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator will do exactly that- it has a slight luminosity/radiance to it, so it will give your skin the perfect glow without adding shimmer or glitter. There are definitely no flakes of glitter that will fall around the face. You can use this product to sweep throughout the entire complexion for an all-over-glow, or you can use it only on the high points of the face to enhance certain facial features. The shade Ballerina has cooler tones and Gilded Honey has warmer tones. Enjoy!

                            Absolutely! Using a fan brush will help you achieve you an all over, natural looking glow. For more intense pigmentation, use a sponge tipped brush and swipe along the high points of the face. For the utmost pigmentation, try wetting your brush and then applying the product. Enjoy!

                            Because these illuminators are very sheer, you can really get away with whichever shade you prefer! I do not think you have to match your undertone. The Ballerina actually works best with skin tones that are deeper, so I would recommend going with the Gilded Honey!

                            You can use any fluffy brush that you already have, and this will give you natural luminosity and moderate pigmentation. For extreme pigmentation, you can simply use your fingers! This will enable you to see the illumination the most! Enjoy!

                            For the best outcome (to receive the most pigmentation), I recommend using your fingers to apply. This will pick up and deposit the highest amount of pigments into the skin. For a less dramatic look, you can use a light, fluffy brush like a blush brush. Enjoy!

                          Is this highlighter more of a warm toned gold or cool toned? I've seen many reviews online of some saying its a cool toned cold and others saying its very warm toned. I'm so confused.

                            Gilded Honey is a pure golden color, so I would consider that warm. Ballerina has much more pink in it, so that would be cool :-) Both Illuminators are incredibly gorgeous. Gilded Honey seems to be the more popular choice, but Ballerina tends to work better on deeper skin tones. You can use these products as a highlighter and only apply to the high points of the face, or you can use it as an all over glow and lightly dust onto the entire face. Enjoy!

                          Which color of the Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator, either the Ballerina or the Gilded Honey is best for fair complexion, with reddish undertones?

                            Either one will look gorgeous on your skin tone! My recommendation is the Gilded Honey. It is much more golden, and you can really see the beautiful pigmentation with just one swipe. You can't go wrong with either choice, but I would say start with Gilded Honey- you won't be disappointed!
