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. We wear it when we want to sport a unified look that plays up our best features (think model-esque cheekbones and alluring eyes).

How it Works

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.

Just purchased this highlighter. Leaves a subtle natural glow on the skin! The packaging is beautiful and compact. It is a great deal for the price. Very pigmented

great highlighter
Purchased

This highlighter lives up to the hype. It's super pigmented and gives a strong beautiful highlight. It's definitely not for the faint of heart, but you can use it lightly. If you don't like a strong super shiny highlight, then this might not be for you. I use this for nightime when I'm going out.

oh MaryLou, I love you

This is now in constant rotation in my bag of tricks. It's a creamy powder that's easy to apply and looks good just about anywhere. Plus, the compact has a swell mirror so you can see how good you look. Love!

Love using this highlighter
Purchased

I sampled the rosier product and loved it so much I bought this one. It gives the perfect highlight and blends really well. I also love that it can be subtle or I can play it up.

Best highlighter I've ever used
Sampled

This is my favorite highlighter I've ever used--it goes on a sheer, shimmery gold and looks gorgeous. I've actually had friends comment on my make-up when I wear this and I've gotten a few to start buying it themselves because they liked how it looked so much. I think it would work with any skin tone/complexion and really helps brighten up your features.

Love it!!!!!
Purchased

At first I was skeptical about yet another "highlighter" on the market, but this is no ordinary highlighter! It gives an instant pick up to my whole face when applied to my cheekbones. Tip: if you are older and have some wrinkles around your lines, do not get it near the wrinkles or it will just make them stand out! I focus on the cheeks. It is also amazing for dotting just at the top of the bridge of your nose near your eyes. Another benefit: I have reddish skin and the yellow tone in here helps calm it down.

Please give this a try!!!

Great product! Very pretty as a highlighter and an eyeshadow. I especially liked to use it under my brow bone.
