    Comments about ULTA Illuminator:

    I got the shade Brilliant Diamond and the luminescence is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. The only thing that is difficult to work with is how chalky and dusty the product is, but when blended on the skin, it is absolutely beautiful!

      Comments about ULTA Illuminator:

      this is the best highlighter, Illuminator I have ever purchased! I ordered it in yellow diamond because I was looking for a highlighter that didn't have a bluish or pink undertone. This is absolutely beautiful! It
      gives such a subtle, nice, natural glow. I can't say enough good things about this! I use absolutely every say! I plan on ordering in all available colors.

        I'm not an everyday makeup wearer, but I wanted an easy to use highlight. It's very easy to use! A little goes a LONG way. I used too much the first application and it took a lot to dull it. It's not as subtle as I would like, but I do like it.

            I was sceptical about trying Ulta's highlighter! But, Ulta did not disappoint me at all! This is a great find! All it takes is just a little on your brush because it goes a long way! This should last me a very long time! Great job Ulta❤️

              I got the full size "Radiant Diamond" in a free gift. I absolutely love it. It shows up beautifully, and as far as highlights go, this is one of my absolute favorites. It goes on so nicely, and looks amazing! If you're looking for a cheap highlight, this is the one. Worth every penny, and I will definitely purchase again. 15/10 recommend.

                I have a light to light medium complexion with oily to combination skin. What color would best suit me? What brush would be recommended for use?

                  A:

                  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:
