Get the mermaid blue one. It goes on transparent/white like a normal highlight but when it catches the light its shows a sheen with blue reflects without being sparkly. It is so pretty! This is a really smooth formula. Going to purchase the other two colors as well!
I'm not sure if it's that I'm applying this wrong, but the highlighter goes on super well, looks great, and then approximately 20 minutes later, it looks like I'm not wearing any at all

I like this product, works just as well as my MAC highlighter

Stunning really, soft pink highlighter with electric glow. My husband bought one of these and was wearing it the other day (yes, you read that right, he wears makeup, too) and I couldn't get over how flattering it was on his skin. I'm like, what highlighter are you wearing today? He said, that cheap one from Ulta. I thought it was one of the high-end ones he had, and I just couldn't stop staring at his skin! So, I ordered myself one (shade Fairy) and of course I can use his, but I want my own! I have olive skin tone with neutral undertones, and Fairy (pink) looks best on my skin, the Unicorn shade is too white (he has both shades).

I usually use Milani Stroblight, however the store doesn't carry it anymore so I bought this one instead and it is way to pink. Looks like tinkerbell dust.

This highlighter is STUNNING! I mean you can see it from space. It has a lovely pink shimmer and it is amazing! Looks great on pale skin. I highly recommend.

I have now purchased this product, and got s few of my girls buying it too! It is very comparable to some of the prestige brands at less than half the price. Anytime I send my husband a selfie wearing this finishing powder, he swears up and down I must have used a camera filter!! It is a must have in my make up bag for sure:)

I wish it were a little brighter/shinier but other than that it's perfect!
Kann1313 from Blue Spings MO
I absolutely LOVE this! I use it as highlight it has more blue/purple undertones that when they hit the light are AMAZING!!! I have recommended it to everyone. I will never use anything else.

I bought the mermaid one and at first I didn't care for it, but as I started using it more, I fell in love with how smooth n not powdery it was on my skin.. It blended great with a subtle shine.. Perfect to mix with the top area of my blush

For a highlighter, the pigmentation on this product is really dull and faint. When applied it can barely be seen.

I haven't found any cons yet you can be meek or bold with this! I choose to be bold!

TEXTURE: very soft and not chalky, buildable intensity, gives a soft sheen that looks like it melts into the skin! WEAR: definitely fades throughout the day (with just sunscreen underneath) but it does so very nicely and makes the skin look great! INGREDIENTS: can do better, dimethicone, talc.
Priscilla from Oak grove KY
As a highlight it's very soft
MakeupJunkie from Indiana
I have the blue and the lavender. They go on nicely and stay put all day. They both look great on porcelain skin

I love this highlighter. I had been wanting to try one for so long, and I finally got the Fairy shade and it is PERFECT! Just the right touch of shimmer and iridescence without looking overdone. I can wear it to work every day.
BeautyDoll from California
i got this illuminator color unicorn as a gift on a goody bag, i like it is not powdery or chalky it applies smooth i use it as a highlighter for my every day, for the hint of color i can say its noticeable and has the hint of glitter of tiny particles

Love this product!! I was at the nail salon and the lady working on my nails had the most beautiful glow to her skin in the sun light, upon asking her why her face glowed she told me about the chrome illuminater, I ordered it and have been wearing it everyday, a little goes a long way and it makes a perfect eyeshadow!!
Angie from Ft. Smith Arkansas
Loved the product but was VERY disappointed that I couldn't get the free gift offered because the store had ran out!!! Did get an alternate free gift but it was not the same brand!!!!
I also had to ask for the free gift. She wasn't even going to offer it to me since the had ran out. Guess if I hadn't asked about the free girt then I wouldn't have gotten anything.

I bought this thinking it was going to be nice... but it was too faint. I'd keep applying it, and sadly, I didn't show at all.

I tried this on in the store and had second thoughts about buying it because at my age should I really be wearing Mermaid highlighter? I went home and washed it off my arm only to look down and see that it had not budged. SOLD! This stuff has tremendous staying power. It's gorgeous. Reflects silvery blue and pink. I am 48 and will rock this whenever I feel the need for a pick me up.

My favorite NYX highlighter fell and broke, but they didn't have any left in store. When I found this one, I decided to try it and it's even better than my last one! Love the color!
Jessica from Ohio
I got mermaid and while it is very pretty and subtle for this type of highlight, I find that it doesn't have great staying power. Usually lasts about 3 hours for me. I don't mind too much though because it is so beautiful and fun to wear.
Jen from Millersville, MD
I use this highlighter almost daily. I love how it shimmers in the light & isn't too much color.
Jen from Spokane WA
I was using it to highlight under my contour and I didn't want a lot of shimmer and it works great for that.
Hilary from Texas
I love this highlighter!! It's a beautiful pinkish/purple sparkle!
