  • "this is a really powerful highlighter. it has beautiful pale pink and pearly undertones. however i find that it can sometimes be hard to blend into my cheeks properly and you can see the line of product on top of the blush. i find a little goes a long way with this and adding a powder highlighter on top really helps it blend more into your face and helps it stay put." in 123 reviews

This is a great dope for Cover FX custom enhancer drops in Halo. Much like that product I use this to add to my highlight. The irredentist is a lot more of a rose gold though as opposed to the Halo which is like alien blue. That being said though the Maybelline product sits nicer on my skin and blends better. I also feel more comfortable wearing it alone as a highlighter than I do my Cover FX drop. Considering the Cover FX drops are about $40 and the Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter is about $8 I'd say it's a good deal.  Maybelline Facestudio® Master Strobing Liquid™ Illuminating Highlighter

Review for: Light - Iridescent more...
When I purchased this product, I actually had every intention to buy primer instead. However, this product has proven to be quite great for me! It is very affordable! The pigmentation is great! You can blend it out to be as fair or bold as you want, and the product is very easy to build! For me, this highlighter looks like a snowy white on the skin, which works well with my current complexion! I may have to try a deeper shade for summer! The only reason I can’t give this product five stars is because I’m not 100% sold when it comes to liquid highlighters. I have found it much easier to apply a powder highlighter than a liquid, and often times don’t find myself reaching for this product for that reason alone. But if you are into liquid highlighters, you definitely need to try this product out!

This is a very nice liquid highlighter! It has high shine and very shimmery. With this, you can mix with foundation for a dewy, glowy look, use a buffing kabuki brush and swipe across the whole body, or just use as a regular highlight! Definitely recommend!

OMG you guys...this is my top buy this year so far. I’ve never been a fan of liquid highlighters and illuminators simply because I feel like they’re not an easy application, but I couldn’t resist buying this when I swatched it. I mix it with my foundation and the overall glow is amazing. I get so many compliments on my makeup when I use this. It’s super pigmented and affordable. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to add a little glam to their look.

Review for: Light - Iridescent more...
I was a little worried about this coming out pink on my skin with my redness, but it looked very pearly and incredible on my light and pink undertoned skin tone. I have very dry skin and this gives a great, natural glow to my face. I would say that if you have oily skin I wouldn't use too much of it because your face is naturally oily. However, this puts the glow in the right place!

Review for: Medium - Nude Glow more...
I like this product it's not bad but I do find it drys on the skin a little quicker so just work w it. For this particular shade I like to put it all over my face before foundation or even mixed in. But the lightest shade I like to put on my cheek bone as a highlight before powders. I would recommend if ur looking for a good cheap liquid highlighter.

I love how smooth this highlighter is when I put it on my face. It has champagne/gold undertones and adds just enough glam to my look. It’s more subtle so if you’re looking for a dramatic highlight this isn’t for you. I took off a star because it will sometimes make your makeup look streaky if your foundation hadn’t dried all the way

This product is brown girl friendly! I have a deep warm skin tone and a dry skin type. I used it as an illuminating primer. It gives a great glow. It does not hide pores or smooth skin but it is good at blurring discoloration and illuminating. If you have dry skin You can do what I did and layer it over a hydrating primer. I also added a little to my moisturizer on ' no makeup' days.

Amazing idea from Maybelline, and they have definitely produced a better product, but this was a total flop.. When blended on the face it turns into nothing but just a brown patch on the skin with no shimmer. And when its mixed into a foundation ot makes one of the most ugliest formulas ever:(

Does anyone know how well this product works?! I've been wanting to try an illuminating primer but have held back because I don't know what it necessarily does or if I would like it?! Any help would be appreciated on this one!?!?

I didn't love this product.. maybe I'm not applying correctly? I rubbed a little into my cheekbones with my ring finger. Felt like I could hardly see it.
