I'm glad I didn't get a full jar.
have you tried applying it just like a liquid highlighter on your cheek bones?

I like it. I could live without it, but I like it.

Here's the best swatch I could get


It pretty much disappears in the shade, but who stands under a tree all day, right?

Nothing's on my face but the illuminator, besides blush...I think it's La Femme Russet + Orgasm Multiple

Indoor lighting, with flash

so far, everyone i know who has liked the illuminator is a WOC. it is definitely on the sheer side. i don't think it's intended to give color, but more of a "glow".

i would think if your lighter than NC42 it would definitely disappear on your skin

I did, but it still doesn't give me the glow it claims, I can hardly see the glow. I like my other highlighting products much better :/

That's what I was thinking. I was gonna wait till summer so I can try it with a tan but even with my tan I'm barely an NC35 (right now I'm NW25). I'm glad I only got a sample.

Yeah, it shows up better on darker skins IMO. I have swatches, pics and a review on my blog. It's "ok", but you need to get the application right. Gimme Albatross anyday.

It does seem to work on WOC with a darker tone. My tone is a bit more on the lighter side & it doesn't even show up on my skin.

I even asked Rihanna's MUA on Twitter how she used it & she said it was best for highlighting the cheeks, bridge of nose & the cupid's bow on the lips. That did nothing for me either. I'm really disappointed, I was so excited to try this & it looked so pretty in the bottle.

MAC's Strobe Liquid does so much more for me. I guess I'll stick with that.

it is definately better on darker skintones. i was so excited when i saw it at sephora because i love the orgasm colour. then i used it on my hand and was kind of disappointed. it's beautiful but you have to use alot to do anything if you're pale like i am. i'd say it's a nice alternative to strobe liquid for those who have complained that strobe makes them look oily though.

im super pale. MUFE HD 117, but i can see it on myself. I use it as a highlight on the cheek bones, and it gives a dewy subtle glow. It's nicer on dark skin though
