Has a cool shine...I love the color...So I have very oily skin and my highlighers tend to look greasy after a few hours but when I tried this it set nicely and is natural looking on my light to medium skin but when I really want the all day glowy almost wet looking skin I set this highlight with Becca opal pressed and it's soooo beautiful...it's a very good idea, but, it's feels SO heavy on the face and it's very sticky and subtle (I want my highlighter to blind people okay) I think if this was in a pressed powder form and had high pigment it would be AMAZING, I am seriously considering returning it

this is a winner...In love with this...I also recommend the Fenty Diamond highlighter but I do NOT recomment the regular Fenty Killawatt highlighters - I haven't been able to get them to even show up on my skin, and my skin is light...When these first launched, Sand Castle & Mint'd Mojito was the highlighter duo I was least excited for, but I bought it anyway because I love being in debt, and let me just say, as soon as I opened the compact, I was mesmerized

I love it so much...I love this stuff...I love that this formula doesn't contain glitter, it makes it so that I can use this on minimal makeup days for a natural looking glow, I just find glittery highlights end up looking more glam than I intend...I will try using it a couple different ways, but I feel like this is better used on no foundation says or perhaps underneath (not sure how much you'll see if under tho)
