First, it's not glittery. It has a lovely luminescence that works on everyone and any skin tone. The applicator brush is inconsequential as I use my fingers to blend it, anyway. It has a nice texture, blends easily, and has excellent staying power. A little goes a long way but it's also buildable if you need a little extra glow. If you're over 40, this is a good product to add to your arsenal. It creates the beautiful glow from those earlier years.
