If I sweat a lot outside it typically stayed put or wore off in way that never ran into my eyes. I do wish it had a cream matte bronzer versus two cream highlighters, but what is included works beautifully....But I would not use it if you’re skin is very fair. The powder highlighter is beautiful, but the cream highlighters are too dark.

Ingredient Callouts: This product is cruelty-free.

What Else You Need to Know: Glow Cream Base is a hydrating, luminous, cream highlighter to give skin the ultimate lit-from-within, radiant glow. Super Glow is a super-soft highlighting powder that gives skin an intense, ethereal, glass-like glow.

Glow Impact Powder is a multidimensional, metallic highlighting powder with a soft-focus HD finish and a velvety-smooth texture.

Winner as eye shadow topper!...I won't be using this as a highlighter on cheeks etc. as I prefer the look of Natasha Denona and Dior highlighters. ...A gorgeous highlighter and very very glittery. I use it as a high lighter and a eye shadow.
