Most Helpful Positive Review Pretty impressed
I was actually quite impressed from this product! I was looking for something that gives a natural glow, with a skin-like finish but not TOO skin-like. I've been using the Glossier haloscope and I don't really like how dewy it makes me look, as I have oily skin already. But I LOVE that this glow is still a glow but more natural and radiant, glow-from-within. The only thing I've noticed is that you pretty much have to have a light coverage foundation or skin tint (or bare skin) in order for it to blend well. It blends almost effortlessly with my fingers when I have light coverage. I tried this on top of my medium coverage foundation this morning and it literally just sat on my skin as was not blending at all. But other than that, it's a great addition to my quick morning routine and lasts all day. Happy with it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not as good as I'd hoped
I'm always looking for a good highlighter from the drugstore and have had a hard time finding one I like, so I was excited to try this, but ultimately, I found it to be disappointing.
My first impression was that it has a pretty strong fragrance. It's not a terrible scent, but it's not great either, and again, it's strong, and pretty perfume-y from something with "clean" and "fresh" in the name. But I have lots of beauty products with smells I don't like, and I'll totally forgive that if the item works well.
Unfortunately, that wasn't the case here. My first impression of its texture was that it had a slightly slippery, almost cooling feeling to the touch, which I enjoyed. It feels nice if you rub your finger over it or rub it on your skin. It has a neutral champagne tone, not too pink or yellow, which is great. But unfortunately it's just not a great highlighter. I used it over foundation and just could not get enough product on my face to get it to have any effect. I tried a brush, a sponge, my hands, just rubbing it directly on my face - nothing.
I mean, if I tilted my face just right in direct sunlight you could see the champagne tone, but no real highlight or sheen or sparkle. On the back of my hand it seemed slightly more intense, so maybe for someone who wears no foundation and wants a super natural, literally almost not even there highlight, it would work? Maybe?
I really tried to get this one to work for me, and I really wanted to give it a fair shot before I wrote a review, so I've tried it over many days. The one way I have found it useful is to quickly swipe on my eyelids when I don't want to wear eyeshadow but want a little brightness. It doesn't crease or spread around and dries down quickly when used that way. It doesn't last ALL day, but long enough. That's probably how I'll continue to use this product.

Literally one of the most disappointing products I've ever received. Absolutely no sort of shimmer or "glow" just a literal oil stick.
Really good for a cream highlight
Jessie from Albuquerque
But still prefer a powder formula with a little less glitter. But the smell.... is very powdery. So just be aware. Definitely wash your face with a double cleanse if you're acne prone.
Literally a cooling glow stick
ABBY from Cleveland
When it says "cooling", it means it! This stuff feels so nice when I put it on. I use it daily and love it! Pairs really well with with matte bb cream for oily skin.

tiffniej from undisclosed
Easy to apply. Not too heavy of a product. Nice and easy coverage. Not too gear for oily skin but all in all it does what I need it to do. It's easily buildable and works well with my foundations. It's a little too pricey though but I'd buy it again.
i love this product.

This was still good it did make me glow but it was over priced a little too much for cover girl but I would still recommend this to some one just because it did work and it did what it was suppose to do .

This is so pretty! I use it on my cheeks and on my eye lids. Its glowy and had just the right amount of shimmer. I do recommend tho if you use it on your eye lids to put down a base of eye shadow first to help it from moving and creasing. I definitely feel like a faerie princess with it.

My Gal pal uses this on me one night. I like how it looks and feels. Not overly drying. No creasing, running. Hard to find though at most stores. Price is right. Will keep an eye out for it.

I was surprised to like this but found that this product gives me my favorite highlight so far. Powder highlight looks a bit dry on my skin sometimes and this gives me a very natural glow. I have tried it under my foundation to let it peek through a bit for a very natural look. My preferred method is applying it to my beauty sponge then blending onto my face where needed. Such a stunning and effortless glow.

So at first i tried putting it over my makeup but because of the consistency it pulled my makeup off so the second time i put it on before my makeup and it gave off the most beautiful blush!!!! So flirty,glowy, and fresh, ughh love it!!!
