Vasanti® Instant Pick Me Up Colour Correcting Illuminator

We’d love to have a professional lighting crew follow us around all day, but we’re pretty sure that’s not in the budget. Luckily, this highlighting illuminator from Canadian cult favorite Vasanti® is the next best thing. It creates a soft-focus glow wherever we apply and doubles as a concealer for red spots and dark undereye rings. Multitasking never looked so good.

This product wasn't very effective, and the brush works terribly. It's too stiff to actually apply the illuminator, so you end up having to rub it in with your fingers. Not super happy with this.

Make-up

I really like this product. It really gave my skin a pretty glow and actually did a good job at hiding some hyperpigmentation! I will purchase it as soon as I run out.

Doesn't live up to its hype
Purchased

I wanted to like this, but it's just OK. It works as a highlighter, but is too sheer for a concealer. Also the brush is too stiff to be comfortable under the eye. I have to use a separate brush.

Obssessed

I absolutely in love this product. I'm a medium brown skin tone and the cc4 was a perfect concealer to used on my skin. not to mention its easy to use , mess free. the actually product itself does what it says it going to do which is illuminate that areas where applied. this is my new go to concealer/highlighter. it make my make-up look professionally done. I LOVE IT!

It's okay.
Purchased

I do like the blend-ability of this product. However, as I have found with a few other undereye products, it does tend to gravitate toward my fine lines and makes them A LOT more pronounced. I really wanted to love this but I find myself forcing myself to use it so it isn't a waste of money. Unfortunately I will not be purchasing this product again. I've been a fan of Vasanti for several years now and was thrilled to see some of their line on Birchbox, but I am just not a fan of this particular product.

A little bit of daily luxury
Purchased

A bit of a splurge but after years of forgoing concealer I decided it was time for a change. This is so lovely and easy to use, the brush really helps to get the product right beneath the lash line and it doesn't settle or cake into any little wrinkles. Wish it had slightly more lasting power but it does fit nicely into a make up bag. I have an issue more with puffiness than dark circles but this nicely lights up my face and really helps to diminish shadows. I have fair skin with freckles and some redness and the light is perfect!

Great, easy to use concealer
Purchased

This is a definite yes for anyone looking to conceal anything! I ordered the medium color based on the sample swatches, and I will reorder it in light. The medium is really for people with medium skin tones... It is super easy to use, and I applied it happily under my eyes, on age spots (what spots???!!!), and on red patchiness. This is one if the "best in field".

Bright Eyes
Purchased

I used the Vasanti Instant Pick Me Up Colour Correcting Illuminator under my eyes for brightening. I also use it on my lower cheeks as I have some redness. I love this fat stick of sunshine. I am usually scared to buy or test a product like this fearing that it will be too thick or too chalky like some foundations can be. Nope. All wrong. This is uber moist and super easy to blend with my face makeup. I also use this as a base for my eyelids. I give my Vasanti full credit for my bright eyes.
