Overall Experience:
I stopped using highlighter for some time as I was going through a bad-skin-time and that includes tiny bumps on my forehead. Any highlighter enhances them too much so I prefer to apply only matte product over problem areas. 


I tried these face shimmer and had the same problem but that is what every highlighter does, it add the shine to the high points so the light can hit the areas and highlight them. So on a flat forehead with tiny bumps, what do I expect. =) Anyways, let's get back to the review.

First of all, I am really impressed with the packaging, product quantity, quality and the price. The foam liner inside the lid is brilliant. Usually loose pigments in sifter jars are a mess. Especially during travelling, the powder gets everywhere even if the jar is tightly closed. With this foam liner, it literally lock the the jar making it mess free, travel friendly and hygienic. 

As for the use, using it by mixing it with a liquid foundation or a moisturizer can give a sudden glow to the skin. You can also mix these with a moisturizer and make your own body glow moisturizer. I also tried mixing all these with clear nail polishes and the result was really great. Using these as eye shadows or mixing with lipstick or lip gloss is another is another great use. And lastly, their main purpose is to highlight face but can also be used to other body parts. Get the most out of your product is what I believe and I actually do that. =)

Application is pretty easy as well. As I mentioned previously, they have high pigmentation so you need to be careful that you do not pick up too much product as highlighting is just about a slight & not-too-obvious glow.

Staying power is also good. I have a pretty oily skin and the combination of hot and humid weather is just what I love. =/ Even during these conditions, it stays for a good time if I apply a good amount of highlight over a liquid foundation and then seal it with a finishing powder. If you use your highlighter over powder product or bare skin, it won't really stay for more than 2-3 hours or even starts to tone down after an hour or so. 

Overall, this is a really nice addition is Luscious Cosmetics' range. All the shades I tried are pretty but my favorite is Gilded Peach as it is even suitable for everyday routine.

Recommendation:
Sparkling Face Shimmer has a shade for every skin color and mood. They can be used on every skin type as well, you just need to find what suits you. As for my experience, everyone who uses a highlighter or is looking for a multi-purpose makeup product, should give this budget friendly product a try.
