A lot of people have trouble categorizing this product -- I think most people use it as a highlighter, but it's actually marketed as a moisturiser with SPF 25. One way I use this product is under my makeup for full-out radiance. I mentioned in a comment on Sunny's review of this product that it made me look like a Nike model and I can't think of a better way to describe it. You know how they have the most perfect lighting that highlights all their muscles? That's what this gives you.
You can use it as a traditional highlighter, over your foundation on the tops of your cheekbones, brow bone, cupid's bow and down the nose and chin, which will give a lovely halo-like effect that never looks overdone, or layer it underneath foundation on the high points of your face for more subtle definition. My favourite way to use this is mixed into my foundation -- it makes your skin look so...real. It's perfected in the most natural, softly-lit way, and even my normally greasy face embraces the sheen. On days that I don't wear full foundation, I like to mix this with my Josie Matchmaster Serum Foundation or just a primer for a healthy glow.
This product comes in 4 different shades, so you won't have a problem finding one that works with you -- I also have a generous sample of Topaz, the darkest shade available, which I use on my lids for that runway wet-eye look. It's one of my favourite looks to pair with Le Metier de Beaute Bali (you can check out that lipstick here). If you have oily skin you can skip a regular moisturiser and primer, but I use this over my moisturiser of the moment. I apply this product with fingers because I find the lovely, liquidy texture wasted on a brush. Highlight also looks better when it's not too neat. Sculpting on the other hand...
