        Comments about ULTA Liquid Illuminator:

        I use just a little underneath my foundation at the cheekbones and browbones. It adds a very light highlight which is exactly what I was going for. I like that it's creamy and doesn't get either flakey or streaky which I've had problems with other comparable brands. I have dry, fair skin. A little product goes a long way for me. Cannot comment on if it adds more pigment when applied more liberally, but I can say GREAT for a subtle, everyday highlight.

            I received a sample of this when I got a free 19 piece kit with a $65 purchase during Black Friday sales week. It blends nicely and gives a more subtle glow. So it's not blinding! But for a subtle highlight it works.

              Comments about ULTA Liquid Illuminator:

              I got this in a free ulta goody bag. I didn't understand how to apply it at first. then I read that it can be mixed with your foundation. I put it under my eyes as a concealer and put my foundation on top. wow, what a result. the shimmer isn't noticeable under the foundation, but it really does function perfectly to reflect light and hides dark circles. I'm hooked. Love it. It's now been added to my daily routine.

                  Is this glittery? I like to apply illuminator to my décolletage to make my skin there glow, but I don't want an obvious shimmery or glittery shine.

                • Q:

                  I am looking for a replacement for what was the ulta BB cream in "illuminating." Would this be a good choice or is the tinted moisturizer more comparable?

                    A:

                    A great replacement would be the Ulta Tinted Moisturizers. If you want it a little more illuminating, you can always mix in one of our Liquid Illuminators for extra radiance.

                    It's formulated for all skin types, but if you have any concerns, it's always a good idea to review the ingredients list prior to use.

                    All of the shades are subtly sheer, so you could really use any of them! We would recommend testing the shades at your nearest Ulta Beauty store to see which you like best. :-)
