The packaging is really elegant. The product itself is really nice. Although you have to layer the highlighter on because its very light. I personally love the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter but i got a allergic reaction to that so... gotta look for something else. I definitely recommend this product though, if you want more of a natural glow to your face.

Works on every skin tone. If you like a highlighter that’s not blinding this is it . It looks like the same glow a VS model has its perfect for that look. It brightens your own skin and reflects naturally. It’s not cakey and the particles aren’t thick either so it’s a natural application. Colour pay off is great you don’t need much either

Definitely loved this powder and how soft and velvety it is but my only complaint is that it kinda oxidized a little weird and just looked very Orange on my skin for some reason I don't know maybe I apply to much but every single time I've used this it left an orange cast or maybe it's just too dark for my skin

These highlighters work so well. They are very affordable and give off so much illumination to the face. I always have this in my make up kit. I highly recommend this product to anyone who’s a make up artist that is adding on to their kit.

Love this highlighter. Such a beautiful lit from within glow! Sometimes I use this alone for a more natural look or sometimes I use it underneath a more blinding highlighter. I have pretty dry skin and it never accentuates the texture which I love. I’m also pretty tan and this still looks amazing even though it’s a lighter highlighter. I picked mine up at Sephora. The best part is they also have this in a mini size so it’s super easy to just throw in your purse.

Hourglass is pricy but worth every penny. It's a beautiful finishing powder. Its like a photo filter in makeup form. Its smooth, finely miled. It just gaves a nice subtle glow. I would definitely recommend this over all others.

One of my favorite highlighters! This will not give you that blinding highlight if that’s what you’re into. I am kind of over the blinding highlights that leave stripes of glitter on your face, and have gotten more into subtle natural looking highlight. That’s what this does, it gives you a subtle shimmer. It is pigmented and blends so well! I want all the shades! I recommend if you like subtle highlights like me :)

Being that I am new to the make up world, I am trying to find quality products that are easy to use, look natural, and don't make me look over-done or like a clown. I apply a light dusting over my face to finish off the look and I am complimented daily.

I’m so obsessed with these powders. They’re so versatile. They’re beautiful lightly fluffed all over the face as a nice diffusing setting powder, or you can use them a bit more concentrated as a subtle highlight.

Do these have glitter or shimmer? Or are they just luminous powders? I haven't had a chance to go and swatch them in store yet. Thanks for any insight!
