Excellent highlight, but worth $42... maybe?
I love Hourglass products and this highlighting stick didn't disappoint. It performs exactly as it should, providing a shimmery reflect without glitter or chunkiness, blending easily and beautifully, and lasting pretty well all day. One tube is a lot of product. If you have no highlighters but plan to use this every day, it's a good investment. If not, I wouldn't spend $42 on a cream product, which will expire within the year.Megan S. Jan 10, 2020
I only really ever use powder highlighters and dislike stick highlighters. This is a stunning luminous highlighter. It applies smoothly and evenly without the look of "i just drew a shiny line at top of cheeks" that sticks tend to look like on a person. This fades out to transition into a seamless finish and its beautiful. It wears all day without fading away, melting off or losing its pigment. It stays pretty perfectly on throughout your day. Is it a good buy?I try to think of the product vs cost when i think of value and worth the buy. I wouldnt call this a value because its a luxury brand item. You could use a more inexpensive highlighter and be perfectly happy. I look for the best product for myself and if you are the same way then i recommend this because its the best highlighter in this format in my opinion. I bought champagne originally and have added pink flash with it and love it too. Great highlighterNicole A. Oct 03, 2018
Great lasting power for a cream highlight
I typically prefer cream products over powder. I feel that they are more natural and flattering on my skin. However, most cream highlighters I tried tend to be a bit "sticky" and don't dry down which makes them prone to slipping all over the face. This cream highlighter had a semi balmy consistency that gave it enough slip to feel and blend like a cream highlighter but not enough to feel greasy or tacky. I did find that it didn’t fully dry down, but it stayed in place for a while on me before breaking down a bit. I didn't find that it slipped around during the day - instead it just started to break down towards the end of the day. It has nice color payoff in a single swipe from the tube and was easy to blend out. I do find it easier to apply using a beauty blender rather than swiping it across the face directly from the tube. Swiping it can disturb the product underneath and using a beauty blender to dab it on the stick and then directly on your cheeks worked much better for me. If you are going in directly with the stick to your face, I would recommend letting your foundation completely dry down before you do this. Overall, I think this is one of the better cream highlighters I have tried. Is it worth the money? The jury is still out on that. I definitely really enjoy this and am glad I purchased it. I will need to keep using this and see how long it lasts me before I can say that it is worth the price tag. If you don't have an issue with the cost, I would say go for it - it is beautiful on the skin.Trisha W. May 03, 2018
I have Rose flash and Champange flash and I can't stop reaching for these. Cream highlights are always going to look more natural than a powder highlight and melt into the skin in a way powder can't do. I highly recommend cream highlights for anyone with textured skin, anyone who wants a natural glow, and also perfect for mature skin! These are definitely worthy of going in my pro kit but I can't part with them! LOL5 found this helpful.Uta K. Apr 11, 2018
pretty in look, and pretty expensive for what it is
a more subtle, not the kind of highlight you can see from outer space, which is good for my taste.
Have to mention the excellent customer service - the replacement came in so fast after I emailed them about a faulty product; truly appreciate that.2 found this helpful.
