It took me a while to find the right brush to apply this product properly (the Bobbi Brown brush recommended by the Bobbi Brown consultant was a little over my budget), but now that I have a brush that works, I have absolutely fallen in love with it! I have the shade “Pink Quartz”. I love using it over cream blush, to sort of “set” the cream blush, as well as to highlight. The highlight it gives is incredibly beautiful…soft, fine, shimmery, natural glow. It doesn’t look over-done, as can be the case with other highlighters. I’ve not had much luck using the strips individually as eye shadows (perhaps my eye shadow brushes need a revamp), but that really doesn’t bother me because I love it as a highlighter. I am definitely going to purchase more shades in this gorgeous product, as well as the proper Bobbi Brown brush to apply it.
