Gives a fine glow...

Trying to capture its actual beauty

  • It lives up to its name - it does brighten my face - albeit gives a glow too!
  • It is a marbelized compact (rumored to be a Dupe to MAC Mineralize skin finish) which can be used to highlight areas where you want a glow!
  • No chunnky shimmer - very fine powder which gives a sheen to your cheeks
  • Very little is needed at one time - will last a long time!
  • Stays long - it stayed the whole party - 6/7 hours or so!(have to yet test the 16 hour claim!)
  • I have oily skin - it did not break me out 
  • Available in 2 shades - I think the  shade sunkiss will suit dusky complexions more (more like a bronzer)
  • Expensive !!!
  • If you have open pores, rough skin - this will only highlight these flaws.... skin needs to be smooth if u apply this
  • If used with a heavy hand- it can give the oily look u dont want!

The Last Word:
It is quite expensive and I consider it a one-time investment....as it will last a long itme! It gives the good results that it claims.... gives a nice, subtle glow which I Like!  If u don't mind the price - give this a try too!
