It's best in use. Light n long lasting.
I really only use Ilia and couple of other green brands for make up, but I was getting married this weekend and doing my own make up and fell into the Sephora trap of thinking I needed a ton more products/options, primers etc...so three weeks before the wedding I tried probably 40 products, bought ten of them and immediately had crazy allergic reaction. Then I simplified to half of those products and cut out the sensitizing ones, but I still felt it wasn't quite right. Finally a couple days ago I went on ilia's website and got the new multi stick palette, some lipstick, and a slightly darker shade of tinted serum I love and decided to stick with that for the day of. Perfect. Beautiful. I mixed the balos with rendezvous, (used a little extra rendezvous for concealer) mixed between my fingers tenderly, in the mood, bronzer and highlighter together from the palette, threw on some very waterproof mascara and a little balm over the ilia lipstick and it was absolutely perfect. I only touched up once from 3pm-2am and no one thought I needed it but me. Sticking with Ilia for life.xo
I was disappointed when you discontinued the lighter shade of this illuminator. However, this one works fine for me. I�m very fair and was concerned it would blend rather than illuminate. However, I had no reason to be concerned. It works fine. I would much rather have my illuminator in stick form than liquid. This works fine for me.
My skin is fair neutral with a slight warm cast. This looks like it would be the perfect peachy pink for me but when I apply to either my cheeks or wrist, there�s virtually no colour. It doesn�t look like I�m wearing anything at all, this is not a good thing. If there is a hint of colour, it�s gone within 20-30 minutes. I do not recommend the shade in the mood, and as I�ve swatched several other shades I�m not sure they�d be better. Very disappointing product.
Subtle color for lips and cheeks. The only makeup I carry in my purse. Clean fresh look.
