Rated 1 out of 5 by jilb Terrible product
I was so surprised and greatly disappointed. Normally I love IT cosmetics. This product is a dud, however. It does not go on smoothly and makes my skin look ashy and older.. There is so much air in the tube I wonder if there is much product. I will cut it open and look. I have learned my lesson and won't be ordering any products that I am unfamiliar with unless I try them out in a department store1st. I can't send it back as it is over 30 days. I was going to use it at my daughter's wedding. Not happy!
Rated 1 out of 5 by RedVik1015 Wanted To Really Like It...
I just can't ... I wanted to be 'luminous' but I thought that would mean my son tone would be even, I'd look wide awake and the lines on my face wouldn't look like I'm old...but nope, I went out in the sun and I swear - I was channeling the Twilight Vampires - there was glitter all over my face... Sigh... I will say I did not see the glitter inside the office - just be warned - avoid the sun like a vampire!!!!

I purchased this color correcting cream when it was a TSV kit; I liked the SPF protection; but it caused dry patches all over my face. I wish the formula would be perfected.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lisejane There's good news and bad news
The good news is that this foundation has 50 spf physical sun block. The bad news is the illumination part would be great on a 16-year-old skin, but not on a 60-year-old skin. And I have great skin, but it's great 60-year-old skin. If you want to emphasize every expression that you've ever had on your face, then by all means get this stuff. But at least you will be blocking the sun and preventing further damage. Highlighting is for a specific micro area of the face, not all over. So if you are anything above 16 years old, get the regular 50 SPF foundation . The good news is actually when I use Malleys face defender over it, that illumination is hidden.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FLGAL Beautiful skin, even on a over 50 gal!
Yes, it does sparkle, but it dies down quite considerably, after a short time (somewhere between drying and a few minutes.) By the time I am finished applying makeup, it is only noticeable, up close, in a magnifying mirror. It does not contain glitter but it does make my face look youthful. I think that by using a brush to apply (the one that is recommended to use) makes difference in the world. Using fingers is too much and hard to even out. I use a beauty blender to get up under the eyes and around the nose. The "problem" areas, I just put a little extra on, just to get everything covered. The whole process takes about one minute and it is beautiful. I have not found it not to be heavier, than the same product without the creamillumination. Also, I had to go down to the "light" shade and am happy to report, that this product does not make me look any paler (yay!)
My skin issues: age spots, random red marks, large pores, lines on the forehead and under eyes.
This product covers all except the lines on the forehead, which I dab in a little of another over the counter, drug store product. A little contour and blush and now don't have to mess with highlighter.
Good stuff and will be a repeat customer!
Rated 2 out of 5 by deelew Sparkly & color is off! Not full coverage.
I received this in Supersize as part of a kit. My shade choice was Rich. The color is completely OFF!! Makes me look washed out or ashy. In order to "fix" the color, I mix it with a drop of my Bye Bye Undereyes Concealer in Deep, and that seems to balance me out. This CC also has sparkles even though Jamie said its not sparkly. As far as the coverage, I like the way it feels and applies. It is definitely NOT full coverage as described though, as it doesn't even cover the few freckles on my face.
Rated 4 out of 5 by limeobsessed Great coverage little bit too much shimmer
I was really excited to finally try it cosmetics. I love how easy this is to put on and the way it covers. My mom ordered this as part of a one time only fan favorites set. I wear light and she wears a medium. We both got the medium. The only thing I don't like is there is too much shimmer to the illumination factor. Otherwise it is awesome! The brush that was special to my set is heavenly. I just need to order brush cleaner.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Venezia Definitely not for me
I got this as part of a recent TSV. I was looking forward to trying it, since it seemed to get good reviews. I found this to be a heavier consistency than I expected and I definitely could feel it on my face after application. I didn't "glow" so much as shine and I don't have oily skin. And I have to disagree with those who say there is no "glitter" in it. There is absolutely some kind of mica particles or similar. Even after I washed this off my face, I could still see tiny specks of glitter and they are very difficult to remove. I don't want to look like I'm dusted with fairy dust. And I don't like to think of those particles getting into my skin or eyes. I was disappointed with the entire TSV - the "Je Ne Sais Quoi" didn't develop into any kind of pink lip balm on me; just stayed clear. Back it went and I won't be ordering this brand again. Way too expensive on shipping now.
