Most Helpful Positive Review Little goes a long way
It doesn't take a lot to add a nice cheekbone highlight- I put a tiny drop on my fingertip and pat it across gently. It definitely has a dewy finish and doesn't show up super well under powder. From my experience with highlighting, this is about midway between glittery and satiny. You can still see individual specs of glitter every once in a while, but for the most part it has a nice glowy, smooth finish. Works well for cheekbone and eyebrow highlights for going out, but I wouldn't use it on your nose or chin- it's too glittery for that. I haven't tried mixing it in with lotion or foundation, but I have high hopes for that.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's Ok (Depends on Preference)
I got the duocrome sunray burst. I think the color is a little dark for me for a highlight but that's my bad (beware if you have very fair skin). I do wish that they showed swatches on the website so it'd be easier to tell the colors. This does illuminate, but the glow is VERY subtle. I think it'd probably look better over bare skin rather than over foundation. Great if you want an EXTREMELY NATURAL glow.

Easy And Naturally Pretty
Emily K from Boulder, Colorado
I really enjoy this highlighter. When I ordered it I got both colours, and both give a really pretty natural glow to my face. I usually just put a couple drops on the back of my hand, and use two fingers to blend across my cheekbones and a little on my temples. Both are quite subtle shades, so they're perfect for a natural slightly dewy look, but would not work well for glam looks, or for someone who wants more glittery or visible highlighter. I highly recommend, and will definitely buy more when I run out.

I never use to wear illuminator, but this makes it so easy and quick that I wear it a few times a week now. It's so subtle and cute.
Love this bronzer!

I was looking for some sort of BB cream when I saw this. I put a dab on my finger from the tester and immediately thought it was WAY too dark. But when I spread it on the back of my hand it actually was perfect. Just the right amount of glow and color. I have used this product on top of my foundation, and have also mixed it with my foundation. I think I actually like mixing the two together the best.
I would buy this product again.

I use under my foundation. Makes it go on smoothly.

I bought this in the stores and when I got home I was super excited to try this. But i shook it up before use and i tried applying it to my sponge. But the product wouldn't come out so I kept on squeezing and squeezing until it finally exploded out and all over my wall. It would not get off my wall either. And also the product was super liquefying and some of the product looked to be like juice and the other part was just really glittery. And I decided to give this product another chance and it did the same exact thing. And now my wall has this huge makeup stain. 😡
Wanted to love it.... but
Valaz from Phoenix
I bought this to use as a mix it for that "yoga skin" trend that I love so much. However I noticed that the liquid would soak right into my skin leaving glitter particles behind. I was disappointed. I absolutely loved the texture of this. It looks so beautiful swatched. It also didn't last long when I used it as a subtle highlighter in the cheeks. After a couple hours it would be faded. I would like to mention I have oily/combo skin. Olive skin tone. I ended up donating this to a friend who loves the glitter look.

Works well with my skin tone and gives a subtle glow from within. Very surprised this worked so nicely with my foundation.
Bright Lights Shade
Alexa H D from Tampa, FL
I absolutely LOVE this beautiful "highlighter". I put this on my cheekbones pretty heavily before my foundation and it gives the most gorgeous glow from within look. Sometimes I'll add more on top of my foundation for that subtle highlight look. It's not glittery at all. I have Light skin and this shade is wonderful. This goes on sale so frequently that there's no need to pay full price. There is a very generous amount in the squeeze tube so I feel like it will last a while even with using a decent amount almost every day. I prefer this over any powder highlight. I love how you can make this look like a glow from within or a soft highlight. I will definitely repurchase when I run out and I highly recommend this. If you're looking for an intense highlighter look from outer space this isn't it.
Kay from Ohio
I usually am not a fan of most of the ulta brand, no shade just like other brands better. But this stuff is liquid gold, I get every single color and I actually mix single ones with my foundation to give me a nice luminous glow. Its amazing!!
I couldn't see it on my skin
Janine from Sacramento
I wanted a little pop of highlight or natural
Glow added to my foundation and thought I'd find it with this because of the reviews but whether I was mixing this with my foundation or putting it on by itself, it was so light or watered down that I couldn't tell I was wearing anything.
Melanie from Tampa, FL
I was leary of trying the house brand liquid illumination when there's so many name brands available to choose from. So glad I gave it a try! It mixes well with my base foundation and gives a nice even glow over my whole face. This is the perfect product if you want minimal coverage with a touch of illumination at a fraction of the cost. Love, love, love!
Love the duochrome
For better or worse from Capitola
Got it on sale and I'm loving it so much. It's definitely my go to new highlighter! I don't wear foundation often and it comes out gorgeous. The one problem I'm just starting to notice is that I get the very slightest itch right where I blend out the highlight. I'm not sure if it's the brush I use or the actual product because I have it above my cheeks, (where it itches) and on my nose and my cupids bow (doesn't itch). The product is itching but not breaking out my skin, no redness, nothing that even would indicate an irritation.
I think it's pretty good
J from Ny
it's definitely not blinding, but if you're looking for a very subtle highlight then I think this is pretty good.
One of my favorites!!
La Latina from Traverse City, Michigan
I love to use as my highlighter under eye and on lid. It's that finishing touch that makes you look like you've added a "photo filter" in real life.
Kara from Wheatley heights NY
This is nice to make you have some shimmer in your face. It blends well also
I actually really this product
GoodieGood from Chicago, IL
I actually got a sample of this. I have acne prone skin. I didn't get any breakouts from using this. I like the option of wearing this alone. I'm not big on wearing lots of makeup. I try to keep my look natural as I can. The only complaint I have is it doesn't last long.
Love the glow!
mrsjoe3 from Washington state
I use this product over my foundation...just a small amount goes a long way and adds the perfect hint of shine!
JBROWZ from Cheyenne
This is a cute subtle liquid highlighter. I blend it with a damp beauty blender and it looks like a healthy pretty glow. Just wish it was a couple bucks cheaper
