Good but glitter-ly
Apply it under foundation, apply it over foundation and - oh, so forbidden - apply it over powder: it works nicely. Depending on when and how you put it on it can be subtle to noticeable but I wouldn't call it a "blinding" highlight (throw some powder highlight on top of it and you have that look if you want).
I've got Gold and Champagne Flash; on my light winter complexion, Champagne is easier to work with (where I feel like with the Gold Flash I need to choose the rest of the make up like eyeshadows, blush etc. more carefully so it doesn't look odd to me - or wait for a tan ;) ). The sticks are very, very soft (do not push out too much of the stick and risk breaking it) and I personally love the shape of it (triangle like the foundation sticks).
My only "complaint" would be that I didn't expect it to be "glitter-ly" at all. I don't know why I thought I wouldn't see any glitter but that was the image I had in mind. Now, don't get me wrong, it's not a glitter stick but people in normal speaking distance can see some glitter. Not the end of the world but not what I had in mind. (The cream highlight by Kevyn Aucoin in Candlelight [The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining Volume II] "doesn't glitter on me" as a reference or recommendation if you're looking for cream - not a stick - highlighter with a subtle, not "glitter-ly"effect that I personally can apply over foundation and powder but doesn't really show when applied under foundation.)
4 stars for the quality, the flattering shades, the simplicity of applying it and the overall lovely effect it has on my skin.12 found this helpful.Erica L. Jan 18, 2018
Shine for days
I love how this highlight turned out. The formula is soft and creamy without being greasy. The color I have is just the right amount for my olive skin tone. When applying I decided to put it under the foundation on my forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin to give an all over sort of shine. After the foundation I put on the rest of the contour and highlight then added this to my cheeks, chin, and nose for the really bright highlight. It works so wonderful. I love it and would recommend it to anyone wanting to find the perfect cream stick highlight. I did receive mine for free in return for my honest opinion I was not paid in anyway for my opinion.8 found this helpful.Fabi F. Feb 10, 2018
I bought this on a whim because i love hourglass products and let me say its stunning! I applied it over my foundation and before powder with a beauty blender and it left a beautiful glossy glow. I applied a little powder highlight over it and it lasted all day.7 found this helpful.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.Utah 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.
