  • "i don’t normally enjoy a cream highlighter but this one is actually quite great! it is easy to blend and easy to build with a damp beauty sponge! on its own it is more of a natural, glow from within highlight, but i amped it up by setting it with a powder highlight from bh cosmetics! ultrashine!" in 36 reviews
  • "i am not normally fan of creamy highlighters, because they normally don't blend well. however, this one blended beautifully with a beauty blende! i loved using it on my collar bones and on the high points of my face. i even used it as a base for my eyeshadow to add a little pop. " in 29 reviews

I would give this hoghliter a 4 star and here is why:

I never used highlighter in my life. I always wanted to but most of the time it felt overpowering and too much for my makeup style which consist of a simple and natural makeup look.
I got the highlighter from Covergirl as a influenster complementary product. By now I’ve tested it long enough to say it does the job.

It illuminates your face, and you don’t need an excessive amount of product for it to work. I do think it feels not quite smooth enough— aka they need to work on it for the highlighter to blend better as it kind of still leaves a harsh line after trying to smooth it out. The product is creamy and it did not make my face oily so that is a great thing. COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Glow Highlighter

I don't typically use a dedicated highlighter. My highlights are usually some shimmer shadow brushed accordingly. When I received this from Influenster for reviewing I was a bit, "meh" but I must say that I love it. The texture is like a mousse. I used my fingers to brush it on but imagine a damp blender would work well too. Once the product is on your face there isn't a lot of room for playtime. It's just there. There was a silvery undertone to this. And I would describe it as more of a shimmer than a glitter for sure. Not too over the top I think this is a great daily highlight for cool toned complexions.

You have to put a lot in order to get that "glow". I find it better to apply it first and adding another highlighter on top, which helps it pop more. Overall, I think it's a good product for all types of skin and to help your highlighter stay on all day but I would not use it as a highlighter by itself.

I was unsure how I would feel about this product when I received it in my VoxBox for free. I’m a big fan of highlighters, but I usually use a buildable powder highlight to achieve a blinding glow. I really enjoyed this product though. It was a very pretty subtle highlight with a light golden glow to it. I enjoyed it most when I used it on a light makeup day to accent my skin without having a crazy bright glow. I can’t wait to try the other colors!

THIS PRODUCT IS BEAUTIFUL. I have actually used it over my eyelids after using all my eye shadow and it is fantastic. I've used it on my lower lip in the middle to make my lips seem fuller. Ive used it on my body too in different areas like shoulders to create a skin-kissed look. I really like it. I do think that it would be better in a stick form as you get it under your fingernail, or it is hard to get access to the product. Also, putting your fingers in a cream pot can harbor bacteria. But, if you use a little spatula to get the product out, then you have nothing to worry about. The color really is nice.  I received this product complimentary for my honest review.

I love the glow + the actual potency of the  COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Glow Highlighter !!! It gave my blush such a radiance and blended really well. The shimmery finish is my favorite part! Excited to continue to use it. The reason why I gave it 4 stars is because of it's size! It's hard to get the product out of such a small little hole. Especially since I typically blend with a beauty blender. I think I will start having to use a smaller brush to apply! Other than that, it's great! I would still definitely recommend to my gals!

I was pretty surprised by how much I liked this highlighter. I typically don't wear highlighter, but I think that this one is one that could be very nice for daily wear as well as more glam looks. I love the consistency of it, it's very creamy and goes on nicely. Additionally, by adding just a little it creates a natural glow. With a bit more product it can become a little more dramatic as well, but I think that the main reason that I like it is because it doesn't have to be dramatic and it's not too over the top like some other highlighters. While I received this product free from Influenster, I think that I would be interested in purchasing this product again.

The texture of this is not typical of a cream product. It’s very squishy. On the skin, it’s difficult to blend because it drys quick. The glitter is also very big and chunky and dispersed so it doesn’t have a smooth, metallic sheen effect. It’s not metallic enough to be blinding but the chunky glitter also makes it look unnatural, so I would not use it to highlight my cheeks. It also lifted my liquid foundation and made it turn cakey even though there was no powder. In this picture, I used it as an all over base like a primer, and applied foundation over it. It gives a pretty shimmer to the skin with fine specks of glitter if you’re going for that look.

Good highlighters are SO hard to come by, and I am so happy I got to test this one from Covergirl! I typically use a high end brand that gets the job done well, but really hurts my wallet. I’ve been looking for something that gives me the same look for less and.... this product really measures up!! The color was beautiful, except next time I think I’m going to try the more bronzey highlight in sunkissed, BUT I still loved the overall glimmer and glow it gave me without the sweaty/shine look most cost effective highlighters give off! My only complaint is that I didn’t feel it lasted very long, so I took a star off for the fact that I had to reapply pretty often! I’ll be trying it in sunkissed next, so I’ll absolutely use this product again!

Loving the new covergirl vitalist healthy glow highlighter illuminateur. It’s so creamy and rich. Such a bright and beautiful highlighter. This was my first time trying cream highlighter, and I will definitely try more out. Compared with powder highlighter I feel cream is easier to apply and accurately place it where wanted. A word of advice , apply with your finger and then blend with a brush. Once blended the highlighter won’t smudge or run. The finishing product is a bright and glamorous highlighter. GIRL!!!!! Watch that highlighter pop!!
