Maybelline Touch of Light Luminizing Face Glow

If you have always wanted to try a Nars Illuminator but didn’t want to spend $30 I have something you should look for at the drugstore. It’s Maybelline’s Touch of Light.

Touch of Light (approx. $8/.85 oz.)

I picked this up in a display at CVS. I was a bad girl and popped it open to see what it looked like in the tube. What I saw was gold goodness! It’s a thin texture and I can’t tell you how little you need to achieve the coolest glowy look. You need a tiny bit. TINY. This can be applied to your cheekbones, browbone, and anywhere you want to glow!

The texture is the reason for my love of this. It’s a gel so it smoothes on really well and blends onto skin beautifully. Again you need so little to make some J.Lo-type magic happen. I think this might not be a permanent product but it’s one thats worth hunting down if you love to glow. This didn’t irritate my skin either. I was worried I’d break out but I didn’t!

Take a look at my hand. Take a good loooong look at my sexy hand!

Isn’t that something else? I think so!

Like I said I found this in a display at CVS. It was a large one with all the new limited edition Color Tattoo’s, Color Show Nail colors, and other stuff for Fall. I think it was $7.29 but I’ve had it a few weeks so I forget. I know it was less than $8 though. Pick this up if you want to glow. I should have picked up two of these at that price!

    Im really confused. can someone help me out please? would you apply this over your foundation? or under a thin layer of foundation? Wouldnt it look too shiny/oily? How would you use this??
    Thanks in advance!

      I just use it as a cream highlighter mostly. Over foundation you can use a very small amount (the size of a tic tac for both cheeks-i rub my two middle fingers together) and smooth and tap it on my upper cheek bone. Using a small amount you just get a beautiful glow. This dries down pretty quickly and it’s not greasy/too creamy. If you use the right (small) amount your cheeks shouldn’t look oily unless you have very oily skin.
