Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen Review 11

Face highlighters are the easiest way to create a youthful and dewy complexion. I was not aware of highlighters before but last month I had to attend marriage so I booked a parlor lady for my makeup. She used highlighter on my cheekbones, underneath eye brows, bridge of nose and on my chin too. I really liked the pearly effect the highlighter added to my skin and my face looked brighter. So, the very next day I ordered Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen online. I am using it every single day and today I will be reviewing it.

My Experience with Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen:

Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen comes in a silver pen-like packaging which looks quite classy and expensive. The packaging is travel friendly as you can carry the pen along easily. The product comes in opaque pen so you don’t know how much quantity is left which is a con for me. You have to press the button at the end of the pen to get the highlighter on the brush at the top of the pen. Dot your face (desired areas) with the highlighter and then blend using fingers.  Sometimes you have to press the bottom 6-7 times to get the product on brush tip and suddenly a huge blob comes which leads to product wastage. I wish the pen mechanism was a bit better but its okay as the quality is great.

The texture is neither too liquid not too creamy, it spreads easily on face. It doesn’t settle in fine lines and it gets absorbed into skin immediately. You can use fingers or highlighter brush for application but I find that fingers work best. It instantly imparts a healthy glow on my cheeks which looks completely natural. The Illuminating particles are not very glittery and they look subtle after application.  I think its a magical product; it instantly makes me look as if I have had a “good-night-sleep” by making me look fresh and glowing. The staying power is also impressive and it stays for 6-7 hours with creasing. Even after that it doesn’t completely disappear, this is great. I have oily skin and I have never experienced any breakout while using it so I think it will suit all skin types easily. I think it’s perfect for marriages and one can also use it daily as it’s not very glittery.

Final Recommendation: Other than the packaging, I liked the pen highlighter from Colorbar a lot. It imparts a nice healthy and natural glow to skin.
