              Just didn't like the way the product went on (looked faked). It seemed cheap and didn,t go on evenly. Needed to be more subtle.

                i use it to highlight my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, cupid's bow, and sometimes use a bit to add a shimmer to my eyeshadow. it has a dewy look, my only complaint would be the color is a liiiiitle too orange-y for my fair skin, but that's easily fixable once i blend it with powder highlight.

                  Disappointing. I've used this for years, but I may look for an alternative. Did they change the formula?

                            Watt's Up! is a champagne cream-to-powder stick that is ideal for soft-focus highlighting. Girl Meets Pearl is a golden-pink liquid that is ideal for mixing with foundation for an all-over glow. You can use both products together or you can alternate, but they will both look gorgeous on your ivory skin!
