Lavender to baby purple colored tube package with a gold cap. It came in a squeezey tube type to dispense the product.




Try on:

Squeezed a pea size amount and immediately noticed it giving my skin moisture. It was lightweight and smelled pretty great. A little goes a long way with this product. The glitters were tiny and had a very subtle shimmer in it.

On the snap below, I exposed it on natural light. As you can see, the shimmers were so evenly distributed.

On both snaps, the highlighting claims of the product was evident. A very subtle glow. For the moisturizing claims, it made my skin soft and smooth to touch. Immediately after applying the product, it must be blended because it tends to dry up quickly. I would use over or under foundations. I could also use this as a highlighter in itself. A little dab on the high points on my face or my clavicle area would instantly shimmer. I would recommend this to try but for the price of $32? I would suggest getting a cheaper option from the drugstore. This would come in handy to use if you guys prefer and all in one moisturizer and highlight.

    1. Hi! It did last all day but instead of applying it under makeup, I just went ahead and apply it on top of my foundation( after setting with powder, then just dotted a few). It had a really subtle glow which was PERFECT for a little glow from within kinda look. Thanks for commenting!
