  • "this is a really pretty liquid pinky/pearly highlighter. it's a pretty fine shimmer. it's a liquid, so you can blend a little and make it more subtle, or lay it on thick for a super glory look. i really like it, but prefer powder highlighters. " in 22 reviews

I went to Sephora specifically looking for a highlighter that would leave me glowy, not glittery. A MUA applied this all over my face, swept on a bit of Benefit blush, and I bought the Pearl stick on the spot. It wasn't until after I got home that I saw that she put WAY too much product on me -- I was shiny, a little sparkly, and gold! Next time I used it, I just put on a tiny bit along my cheekbones, but it wasn't enough to be noticeable. Now, I sweep it along my cheekbones, blend, check, and sometimes reapply to get the glow I'm after. I can't use it down my nose (makes even my dry skin greasy), and the effect doesn't last all day. Also, I've found that it needs to go on top of foundation or the the glow is gone. Not sure if I'd buy this again, but the stick formula is easy to use, it doesn't break me out, the glow (when I finally get it right) is very nice and age appropriate (I'm 39), and it has a cooling sensation when applied. Better than others I've tried in this price range. Worth a try, certainly.

I’ve tried a million different highlighters but this one is the most natural and long lasting! I love that instead of a glittery, eyeshadow looking effect this one blends seamlessly into my foundation for a natural sheen!

I wear this all over my face after my primer for an all over glow. I have no shame I wear it by itself too. It's so pretty and I wish they didn't discontinue this from Ulta! Its very pretty and natural and would be perfect for photography makeup

This was my go to luminizer for a really long time! The peachy pink shade blends perfectly into my fair skin tone and gives just enough shimmer and sparkle without being overbearing. I only stopped using it because Sephora stopped selling it on their website

This stuff rocks! It literally is exactly what it says - “liquid pearl for your face.” Twist the tube and dab a little (that’s all you need!) on your cheeks and nose, and your face instantly looks like it has a permanent pearly light shining on it all the time. The ingredients are good for your skin, so even sensitive skin can use it; and it lasts a long time, so the already reasonable price is well even more well worth it :)

I love this stuff who doesn’t need a luminous glow? And it’s so easy to apply I like using it under the brow and cheek bones and even use it on my collarbone when going out sometimes I’ve been using this since it came out!

I don't like this product at all. I personally love blinding highlighters and this was so sheer I applied this after my foundation and it just moved my foundation around. And even applying as a primer for a glow within it's still sheer and unnoticeable. After a layer of foundation, concealer, and face powers, you still can't see it! I do not recommend this to a friend.

I used this as a primer on my face not as a highlighter and I loved how it made my face look. My makeup looked glowy, fresh and like it was lit from within. I only had a sample and once it’s gone I plan on purchasing the full-size.

super pretty highlight with a slight pink tint
it’s pretty liquidy when it comes to consistency
I like to apply with my finger and tapping it on as opposed to putting the stick to my face

This is technically a primer I believe but I love mixing it with my foundations it gives a beautiful Luminosity to your skin or if you want to mix it in with your moisturizer and wear no makeup it will give you more of a Radiance all over it does not have as much of a highlighter effect as much as an Illuminating effect all over the skin

I've heard good things about this product, but I have medium skin tone. Would it work for me?
