This is the first highlighter I have ever purchased, I have always been skeptical about using highlighters thinking they will definately just leave me looking oily/sweaty and that throughout the day they will just melt away and start to slide off my face! But.. I couldn't have been more wrong, at least about this highlighter anyway!
I had this put on me at a benefit counter and loved the result instantly! So I bought one! I used it for the first time on christmas day and have been using it ever since every time I apply make-up whether its for a night out or for day time.
I apply this highlighter (over my foundation) along my cheekbones and a little on the apples of my cheeks too, then I apply a small amount on my brow bones and sometimes on my cupids bow. I blend it using my fingers generally as I find I have better control that way and don't disturb my foundation, although the sponge provided is also good at blending. The result achieved, is a beautifully natural looking soft glow to the face. The colour is perfect for all skin tones, blends wonderfully, doesn't look cheap or fake but just like a natural glow. It gives the face a wonderfully sculpted look as well when applied to the cheek and brow bones. Its staying power is AMAZING, I can put this on in the morning and it will still look perfect by night time, even on a night out in a sweaty warm nightclub it stays perfect! Not once has this highlighter ever looked oily or sweaty on me, and not once has it ever started to slide off my face!
I love this highlighter so much! I will definately be repurchasing when this one runs out, not sure i'll ever change to a different highlighter! :)
If you love highlighters, or are wanting to try one for the first time, try this one, you just cant go wrong! :)
being fairly fair skinned, I bought this product not really knowing what to expect (most of the reviews are from medium skinned women). So, here's a small list of pros and cons about buying this is you are a fairer skinned woman.
Pros: its a pretty, shimmery gold highlighter with a velvety texture. You don't need much, so it looks like it will last a while. The gold colour can be used as eyeshadow, which is really nice.
Cons: it is not suitable for dry skin, because it will not blend well and it will make skin drier. It is not suitable for very fair skin (you will have gold streaks on your face). It is a little to pricey. It can be very noticeable and unnatural if you are heavy handed.
Overall, I like this product. I need to be careful with the amount I apply, and, having dry skin, I need to mix it with some moisturizer. I especially like that it can double as creamy eyeshadow. However, fair skinned people beware, this is probably not your highlighter.

I tried several highlighters from powders to creams and sticks. So many added color or sparkle/glitter, which is definitely NOT what I want. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for!! It applies and blend's so easily. Seems like sooo many have a color and sparkle that REALLY stand out when light hits it. I don't want my highlighter to be a focal point of my face?! Maybe the younger set wants that but I want it to blend/work with my contouring. This is absolutely perfect for me :) It has a sheen and blend's so well it compliments my contouring without "standing out"... Also because you only have to use a small amount it seems it will last forever (I wish, ha, ha). I was a little hesitant because of the price but I'm so happy I took the chance because your actually saving as you won't have to purchase another for a LONG time ;)

I had a mini of this back in the day and it took years for me to use it up. I would always dab this on with my finger for subtle glow. The product isn't too gold or icy, just the perfect in between. I can wear this over liquid foundation, powder, or no makeup at all. It blends beautifully and doesn't leave a chunky highlighter look on my skin. The full-size packaging is a bit bulky for me, but I will definitely be on the lookout for minis (if they still exist)

This works, but its really not the best. You have to apply a lot for it to show up, and its really hard to blend out. I do like the natural glow it gives if you apply a lot of it, but it is definitely not worth the price. If you want to splurge on something, I say chose something else.

I love this bronzer

If you're wearing a powder foundation or no foundation this is a pretty good highlighter (if you wear it underneath the foundation). It's very subtle and pretty. If you wear liquid tho this will pull all of your foundation off and look patchy!!
Ally from NYC
It easy to use and color is amazing.
Gena from Alabama
This cream highlighter has the most amazing dewy finish and the color is perfect when I'm tan or pale. It gives a way more natural blend into the sling than other powder or liquid highlighters I've tried and won't see the sense in using much else. It glows instead of looks overdone and frosty, and stays on ALL day! I even us it under my eyes in the corner to give a pop. Or on a no makeup day where you still want to look like you're not one of the walking dead, you can pop this on the tops of cheekbones, bridge of nose, under eyes, a dab above the Cupid's bow and you have brought yourself back to life with little help from anything else.

I have brown skin and i LOVE this highlighter. I have been buying this for years. Looks great, goes on easy.
Heather from Corona, Ca
This is a great cream highlighter. If I want it to pop more, I'll add a powder highlighter over. Not necessary though.
brooklyn from New Jersey
i love using this product for my inner highlight for my eyes. it's subtle but makes a pop
Clau from Arizona
For all type of skin
yigg from la
I'm dead pale and this is too dark gold for my skin even when I tried to use just a little for eyeshadow. i wish they had it in lighter colors. like more white. I'll probably give it to my sister she's hispanic and I think it will work better for her
Violet from Baltimore
Beautiful color and it glides on so easily. Very natural, but you can also pack on more if you want a brighter highlight.
Adrienne from Manhattan, KS
I liked the product because it was very creamy and has that soft subtle glow that i am looking for. However, when i try to blend it into my skin (even lightly) it clumped up into little balls. It's also not oil free and it has caused me to break out.
Karly from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
I'm in the medium-deep shade range and this highlighter provides a very soft gold glow. Initially it does apply on the skin as a start streak of ashy gold but it is highly blendable and provides a nice soft natural glow once completely blended into the skin. The tube does look like it would last a fairly long time.
I would recommend this highlighter if you're in that medium-warm shade range
J-Slay from Omaha, NE
I apply this on my cheek bones and a little bit down the nose. It's one of my favorites actually. The color pay off is great. The only downside is that it dries fast. I thought I could just apply to all the spots and then blend after application. This is not the case. Apply and blend right away. I just use my fingers and it blends seamlessly into my foundation. But, I also use all cream products usually. If you haven't tried it, give it a shot!
Jo from LOUISIANA
I didn't like how wide the stick was / is. Had it been smaller, I think I would have, the color was good.
Lauren the Beauty Researcher from Beverly Hills, CA
I love this cream highlighter. It's one of the best on the market for a natural 'glow from within' highlight. It's buildable by itself but also works well if you use it as a primer and dust a powder highlighter overtop. It CAN over exaggerate bumps/pores so use it with a light hand. I, personally, like using it for my nose highlight and inner corner of my eyes to give a natural glow.
Jasmine from Bay Area
Love this product!!! This product works great for everyday natural look. Easy to apply and blend out.
Lexi from Forney, Tx
This color is really pretty! I have been wanting this for a while and decided to go for it. It goes on well and is even pretty on a bare face for a glowy look. Will definately buy again
Ivonne from Texas
It's a good product. It has pigment. It's a little hard to use a brush to blend it out. But with your finger it works great. It's very nice. Not greasy or anything.
Sofia z from New York
Omggg love, love love itttt. Goes on smooth and easy to blend into skin
Meg from California
Oh. My. JESUS. This highlighter is a staple in my makeup rountine. I do a more natural look every day, and this highlighter is just so goregous on bare skin as well as over foundation! It's super soft and rosy, and it looks very natural but still noticable, taking advantage of your natural skin tone and making the absolute best of what you have. I love this so much, and I will never go without it!
Lo from Utah
