More colors?

I'm pale, like, Snow White pale. There's only one color and it's darker than my actual make up somehow. I was really excited to use this product after all the great reviews but alas, no avail. It has a great consistency nonetheless, I just wish they had a variety of colors.

Not sure what everyone's so excited about
Purchased

It's basically a flesh-colored concealer. There is no "highlighting." It's also pretty textured and obvious. I got the lightest color possible and it goes on like a cheap concealer pencil. People put it around their eyes apparently but it just makes your eyes look like they have more flesh color around them. 0/10.

not for me

I like what the product is supposed to do... highlight certain areas. But the pencil was rough and tugged at my skin. I wish it were a creamier consistency. I won't be buying. But glad I got to try it out. I ended up civic it to my daughter and she actually likes ita lot.

Cheap Product. Problem is that it is $18.
Purchased

I bought this product because of the 5 Star reviews; and at $18, for a pencil, expected some bit of quality.

This product is grainy and not high quality. It reminds me of cheap makeup you find at drugstores in strange parts of Eastern Europe, next to the blue eyeshadow; only I threw away about $20 for it.

I much prefer a liquid product for strobing, or getting the highlight effect.

Doesn't blend well

I have pretty dry skin and found that this highlighter pencil doesn't blend well into my fair skin. I'm not impressed with it at all and found its formula to be dry as well.

could do better

The product isn't bad, I just don't have the need for it. I barely wear makeup, and don't have the lifestyle to spend so much time highlighting my face.

I love this product!

I love that I've been wanting to try highlighting and was able to sample this product. Sample size was perfect and product was very effective.

Useless because it can't be sharpened

I was thrilled with this highlighter when I first received it. I used BB's tips for concealing/highlighting and the product works very well. Nice and thick, unlike cream concealers that can wipe right off.

However, the pencil is so thick that it was not able to fit into any sharpeners after I used up the tip. I even tried it in an extra fat sharpener. Since I could not use the whole product for this reason I would not buy or recommend.

not a fan

the product is not blend-able and does not work well with eye shadow. I've tried other similar products and had the same experience; it's thick and chunky. It might work it you use just this product by itself in the inner corners of your eyes but you'll have to be either heavy handed or blend very minimally.

Too Chalky

My skin gets dry in the winter, and I found this product not creamy enough for my skin. Instead of highlighting, it just dried out my skin and flaked all day. I had high hopes, but was left wanting.
