Birchbox Breakdown

If being too gorgeous were a crime, this luminizing powder would turn us all into serial offenders. Ok, maybe that'’s a little extreme, but can you blame us? This three-in-one highlighter, eyeshadow, and all-over shimmer is the prettiest honey-hued pigment we’ve ever laid our eyes on. As the pun-tastic name suggests, this versatile luminizer imparts a soft-focus glow wherever we choose to apply it. Light-reflecting silica particles conceal blemishes and fine lines, while the honey color leaves a sheer wash of shimmer. It’'s our secret to looking great in all settings, from fluorescent cubicles to candlelit cafes.

How to Use

Using a blush brush, sweep the powder on your cheekbones, layering over foundation or applying directly to bare skin. You can also use your fingertips or a shadow brush to wear it as a shadow. Don’t be afraid to get creative: consider adding a bit of luminizer to the bridge of your nose and your lower lash line to illuminate your whole face.

Super Punchy Luminizer

First off, the packing is adorable, but also sturdy. And then when you open it it's like a choir of angels singing! So pigmented and high shine, I love this for a cheekbone highlight, but also use it for a highlight under my brow bone or as an inner corner shade. Multipurpose and good at it!

Super creamy powder
Purchased

This is a really pretty golden creamy powder, it goes on very nicely and is pretty pigmented for a luminizer. It can also be easily blended. For a more glowing less intense look.

Love!
Purchased

I try and return products all the time because it is so hard to find products that work so well! I bought this based on some Youtube reviews and I love it. It is just the right amount of shimmer to give you that glow but not at all obvious. Sometimes I actually feel like I have to put on more to see it but I am tan and I do like that it looks more natural than in your face. It also doesn't have any glitter type specks so it looks beautiful on. Love it!

Not for me
Purchased

A lot more shimmery than I had expected. Also the color did not match my skin tone. I like theBalm but this product was not for me.

Not my favorite highlighter

This is not the best highlighter but I like it as an all over shadow on lid. I haven't tried it wet but will do to see if that makes a difference.

Use This EVERYDAY
Purchased

I saw this product used in a Grav3yardgirl Youtube video and had to have it. I love this product and use it every day instead of using a liquid highlighter. Very easy to apply.

Amazing!

My favourite highlighter of all time. Has yellow undertone so a Perfect shade for my complexion. Looks very natural and feels a light as air. I find liquid highlighters to be too thick, difficult to apply on top of make up as it seems to move the underneath make up. Dont have that problem with this, after applying everything else i just dust a tiny amount over my checks and brow bone. Gives me a natural dewy finish. Doesnt look power like at all. The only problem I had with it was my own doing, didnt know how to use it at the beginning so used toooo much (&went out), looked ultra glittery/shimmery. Its very pigmented so use a very small amount. As you only need so little of it, it should last a long time.

I'm LUMINIZED!
Purchased

Ohhhh yeah. I bought this and it has such a pretty glow to it. If you're into very gentle hi lights, this isn't for you. And if you put it on wet, ummm yeah, no one can miss you, lol. I love it!
