I had heard about this product for quite some time but I was concerned about a few things... First the coconut oil base - would it make my skin break out? Nope! Second, is the shimmer really different? Yes - the shimmer is very subtle and more ethereal rather than glittery. And third, I have oily skin - will this make me look greasy? No, if you apply very sparingly. And I will also add that I apply this over powder so that the rest of my skin has a matte finish.
If you are expecting a dramatic highlight, this product might not be for you... However if you are looking for a subtle glow, add this to your cart STAT!
I'm not really big on makeup, but have been wanting to find something more natural that feels less cakey and heavy on my face. This is a really nice luminzer - creamy, but not thick or heavy, much like the rest of the rms line. It also isn't too sparkly or anything like that - just the right amount of shine to catch the light and make you look more awake. Looks nice on the eyelids, too, to kind of brighten up the eyes without using an actual eye shadow.
This product creates the most subtle glow of any highlighter. It is very light and does look like light is hitting the face. I have oily skin, so I wasn't sure about it....but I use it very lightly on the cheekbones and below the eyebrows. My favorite thing about it is that it is natural and does not contain harmful chemicals.
Not worth the money
I wanted to love this SO MUCH. I've heard wonderful things and read a lot of reviews. But my verdict is in: It's nice but not enough to justify the hefty price. First of all, it DOES NOT STAY ON YOUR FACE. I love how it looks right after you put it on the face but unfortunately it doesn't last very long.
I feel like there are more affordable products that does the job equally well. If you are concerned about the ingredient and doesn't mind splurging, go ahead. I returned it at the Birchbox store.
This has a nice shimmer, but it doesn't really soak in. I use it right under my eye lids where I won't smudge it accidentally.
