My take on the Product

First of all let me tell you about the packaging.  It comes in round cylindrical bottle which looks like a nail polish bottle. Don’t you think so?

Bottle is very travel friendly and it doesn’t get spill over.  The brush applicator wand is used to apply highlighter in perfect quantity to brow bones and cheek bones to enhance the glowy look.  I like how precisely you can apply the product with the wand.  Bristles of the brush are very soft.  It doesn’t harm the skin at all.

You just need to dab very small quantity on your cheeks and blend it smoothly. You can also use this with your moisturizer to get that perfect sheen.  A little dab goes long way.  So be very careful while using with moisturizer or else you will turn into Shiny Disco Ball 😆 

My favorite thing about this highlighter is that it doesn’t give the illusion of an oily or sparkly face like some highlighters tend to do. It doesn’t glitter, it glows. I just adore the bright, illuminated touch this gives your face. I put a dab on my cheekbones, middle of my forehead, and a tiny bit on my chin and the bridge of my nose. With a perfect shade of bronzer, my skin looks so beautifully polished and complete with a healthy glow.

Pricey, but it’s worth it if you can shell out that much money. It really does make a difference in your make-up. I can’t be without a highlighter now. I will surely repurchase this product. But I think this bottle is going to last me forever. Lets see!
