I don't get it
Sampled

I love highlighter, but I didn't think this one did a good job of highlighting at all. The formula is kinda of thick on the skin. Even rubbed in it looks more like a mask then a highlighter. I also didn't think it highlighted at all.

The color is not for me
Sampled

I own a fantastic highlighter. It's by a popular brand and although is a bit pricey, I find that the little crayon lasts a really long time - even with daily use. And, it's a pink toned highlighter which is what I prefer. This sample - although more like full size product - had a yellowish undertone and I just don't want that color as a highlighter.

Pencil was too light and smeared too much. It didn't last either - was gone in less than 15 minutes.

Not for Me

This is an OK product, but it's not right for me.
I can't be used as a highlighter on my skin because it makes me skin tone perfectly and I think the pencil tip is to thick to get a nice clean line on the water line. This is a pass for me.

Too flat, no shimmer
Sampled

I like a little shimmer in a highlighted. This color was really flat. It just looked like I was wearing concealer that was a little too light.

I didn't really like the color and it is not really something that I would use on a daily or weekly basis. It might be handy as a spot treatment on an occasional basis.

Not for all skin shades

I love highlighters! Once you get a feel for creating the dewy skin look you too will be hooked, I normally use a highlighter with a more luminescent finish and would have to say this one did not make me want to toss out my old brand. I have light-medium skin coloring with neutral undertones so in theory this should have worked just fine...but after the third try I was back to my old highlighter. I couldn't see any change with this pencil and was loathe to use more and more for fear I'd look like an 80's movie gone bad. Maybe if I try the latte pencil...

What?
Sampled

I am a bit newer to some of the products that come to me through Birchbox, but I had never heard of a highlighter other than one to mark up textbooks. I think it went on nicely, but as another reviewer said, I have watched the videos and tried to figure out how to use this pencil, but I have no clue as to how it would really work with my makeup routine. Maybe as a blemish concealer?

Disappointed
Sampled

There was so much Birchbox hype about this highlighter, so I was super excited to be getting it in my box. However, I was extremely disappointed. I didn't feel like it did anything for me, and just figured I was using it wrong, or maybe it was better for others. However, the lady at my work that subscribes to Birchbox also received this in her box and agrees that it isnt a great highlighter at all. I uses Benefit's Pearls are a girls best friend, which is a creamy stick thing, which a lot of shimmer....I guess I'm just used to more illuminating.
