This highlighter is perfect for every day wear - I absolutely love the subtle "sweaty" look it gives. Think no-makeup makeup looks. If you are used to more glittery out-there highlighters (which I totally love as well, just not for every day), this isn't the formula for you. ...I am not a girl that loves a major strobing highlighter.

This product really does help give your face makeup a glowy/dewy look. A lot of the reviews are upset because it's not your typical highlighter, which I agree with, but I actually prefer something like this for my fair skin to a strobe-y highlighter. ...It's not oily, goes on so smooth, and doesn't make you look like a strobe light - it just makes you look better somehow!
