What Laura Geller says about her highlighter:
Simply illuminating, my Baked Highlighters allows you to create dimension and brighten up your face with a lit-from-within glow!
My silky low-glow powder casts a gentle highlight wherever you sweep it on, playing up your favorite features and giving your whole face a radiant look.
On the website, this shade is described as a sparkling peach. I’m not sure that this description is super accurate. First of all, there isn’t any glitter in it, so don’t worry about the word “sparkling”, and also, it is a warm beige tone, but I think it leans a little more yellow than peach. Either way, it’s a warm, glowy, GORGEOUS highlight on the skin. ;)
This product is baked, so you can use it dry or wet, but I don’t see a need to apply it wet, because it’s wonderfully smooth and pigmented already.
The double ended brush that comes with it is actually a glorified sponge tip applicator. It actually does work well though, so I don’t have any complaints. :) I use the wide end to apply product to my cheekbones and down the center of my face. I love the small end to highlight the inner corner of my eyelids and my cupid’s bow in the center of my top lip. I do suggest following up with another brush to blend the product if you want a more natural look.
I highly recommend this product! It’s stunning, and the formula is just fabulous. LOVE it.
