The Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminators ($26; qvc.com; ulta.com) are a fairly new launch from the brand and feature a liquid pigment formula baked into a beautiful swirl design, with a rich, radiant finish.The Illuminators come in two colors, Gilded Honey, a warm gold and Ballerina, a peachy gold.
They are quite shimmery, very pigmented to the touch and very creamy as well. Blendability is not an issue and while there is quite a bit of fall out, it doesn’t look powdery or leave shimmery bits all over the place. On the skin, It does look very luminous, a tad shimmery as well, but not in a bad way. I like to use a very floppy brush, or even better, a fan brush to do a light dusting since its easy to go overboard with this one. Gilded Honey is more of a warmer tone and looks a little more natural on my complexion than Ballerina, but Ballerina is gorgeous even as a wash of shadow on the eyelids. Overall, these are really nice highlighters for the price, just be sure to be very light handed so not to go overboard with the shimmer.
