I wanted to use this multiple times over the course of a few weeks before reviewing it. Verdict: I really like this stuff! The effect it gives is subtle but it does impart that "naturally luminous glow" so many of us are after!

I have used it successfully as a primer before applying foundation, mixed in with my foundation, as a highlighter on cheeks and under eyebrows, and on its own over clean skin to brighten my complexion when I need a pick me up but don't feel like wearing much makeup. I am a fan of the "impeccably glowing skin" look, and this helps achieve that. I don't personally find it drying nor does it make me oily. The consistency is liquidy, without silicone, which I personally like. Also, while it has a pearlescent quality, I don't see glitter, which is a relief as I'm not going for the disco ball look most days.

I actually came across this product when I was looking for a drugstore dupe for Benefit That Gal - the brightening face primer. While this is not a dead ringer for that product, I think I like it even better, especially for the price! Will repurchase!

This is to die for!!!! Arggh, I cannot get over how glowy it is, even once you apply your foundation it still shows :)! I wear Double Wear and sometimes I find it abit cakey or dry - this changed all of that. I applied a pump on my face, then also apply just a small pump mixed with the double wear- HG! It just makes the whole look so different. Best $$ I've spent.

This is positively glowy! Such a small bottle for what I considered kind of expensive. I think $10 for this is a little extravagant. I could not afford to use this every day w such a tiny bottle lol!! You have to shake it up b4 using coz it can separate. I like the pump, it doesn't dispense too much once I got the hang of it, but that has disadvantages like if you pump out too much product you have to waste it (it's a learning curve how much to use too which can be a costly mistake at the beginning) & I'm not sure how to get out all of the last of the product (can the top be removed maybe somehow, I will have to check!). I use this w Loreal Lumi liquid foundation, Lumi concealer, & True Match powder. It is not necessary to use a highlight/illuminator for me coz I'm naturally oily. I don't think this prolongs the wear of the foundation/doesn't make it last any longer. I would reserve this for times when I won't be needing my foundation to last all day nor hot humid 95 degree summer days. The effect is beautiful but isn't long lasting. I need my makeup to last longer than 3-4 hours. :/ but the freshly applied look is gawjus like it would be gr8 for a candlelight dinner date or special occasions.

I purchased this because I heard it was a dupe for MAC's strobe cream which I once had a long term relationship with. I used it at first, by itself under my foundation. It looked nice but not really what I expected. The next day, I applied moisturizer before the magic lump and then applied my foundation. I do believe it gives a nice glow but, I really wasn't impressed with this product. I think it is a bit drying, even after using it on top of a moisturizer.

While I wouldn't repurchase this, I do believe it has a nice shimmer to it and I plan on using it as a luminizer on my high points after applying my foundation and powder.

When used alone under foundation, this makes my skin GLOW! I honestly look like an angel with softly lit skin! When mixed with a primer (MUA Mauve) the glow diminishes.
I need to use a primer in conjunction with my foundation because my skin will get all oily and the makeup will transfer :/ I wish this primer had MORE of a priming effect along with the glowy effect. Then it would be perfect.

The consistency is runnier than I expected, but it applies evenly. Doesn't help your makeup last much longer, but does give a nice glow. Having oily skin I can only wear this on days when it's not too hot and I won't be wearing makeup for more than 6-8 hours before it starts to breakdown in lines.

a wonderful drugstore version of my favorite primer ever, the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer. the magic lumi has more of a silvery sheen to it while the laura mercier one is golden, but they're still very similar. i really like this primer, honestly! it doesn't seem to do much for wear time but it definitely gives your skin a nice dewy glow that makes any foundation look awesome on top of it. i heard on youtube reviews that it was very runny for a primer but when i used it, it didn't seem any runnier than any other primer i've used before. personally, i think this is a great option for a primer if you're a fan of a glowing look.

I don't really care for dewy skin as an every day look, and this is all it does for me. I just feel kind of greasy and weird when I wear this, but I guess if I just use translucent powder on my t-zone I can use this with a light bb cream in the summer

i love this product, i bought it because i have very dull looking skin during winter and heard some great things about it, initially i thought it would look glittery on the skin and wouldn't look natural at all! BUTT when i tried it i loved the results, leaves my skin looking fresh and lumi.
