Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Shimmering Highlighter

Super Sheer Shimmering Highlighter by Sonia Kashuk is part of the permanent collection and a new launch for Spring/Summer 2011. 

What it claims:
"This shimmering pale rose gold highlighter adds a natural-looking radiance and leaves skin with a beautiful dewy finish. This formula is super lightweight with multireflecting pearls that gently brightens skin with a smooth and soft finish. Hyaluronic acid helps to hydrate skin, while vitamin E and grape-seed oil impart anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties. Linden extract and jojoba oil smoothen skin for a silky finish."

What I think about it: 
The pale rose gold color goes well with my skin tone and has the perfect amount of shimmer. It leaves a natural, dewy finish when I dab it along the top of my cheekbones and does not make me look like a disco ball even when I mix a few drops with my foundation. The packaging is very simple & the pump lets me control the amount of product needed.

Without  any blending

The texture is more like a fluid, but not very runny and blends in very well. It doesn't leave an oily film, but keep in mind that it is is quite shimmery. The formula is very lightweight and the light reflective particles add a beautiful glow. Price wise($9.99), I think this is a great pick too, since most high-end, gold based highlighters retail for a much higher price and it's hard to find such a shade at the drugstore. I just wish there were more shades available to choose from. Maybe some light pink & peach based shades so, there's one for everyone.

If you are looking for a sheer, gold based highlighter that adds some warmth and a nice sheen without breaking the bank, I highly recommend this one!
