Highlighter in 'Glow' by Mineral Hygienics - Review & Swatch

Today I have one of my favorite highlighters by Mineral Hygienics. If you have been reading my blog for some time, you would know that this product was in my Favorite Face Products of 2012. Want to know why?

Highlighter in 'Glow' by Mineral Hygienics:
Illuminizers add a little extra shimmer to bring out that fresh-faced, healthy glow. Glow is the perfect complement for medium and darker skin tones.

Product Description & Packaging:
Though this product is called enhancer/illuminizer on the website but I will keep it simple and call it a highlighter. This highlighter comes in a 20 gram sifter jar. The product is in powder form and can be used with a brush or fingers. The shade of this highlighter is dull gold. The packaging is made up of plastic and is quite sturdy. The base of the jar is transparent so you can see how much product is left.

The swatch is taken on the back of my hand without any primer or base underneath and have been applied lightly with fingers.

Overall Experience:
I was not a huge fan of highlighter until I started using Luscious Cosmetics' Sparkling Face Shimmer. Highlighter helps to sculpt the face/body beautifully by accentuating the highest points of the face/body. Let's talk about this highlighter now.

Application of this highlighter is really easy since the powder is so fine and glides and blends perfectly either with a brush or fingers. It is highly pigmented so a little amount goes a long way though it is quite build-able so you can go from natural to party makeup if you like. I usually apply it over my cheek bones and my cupid's bow and sometimes I use it on the bridge of my nose. I don't use highlighters on my forehead as it enhances tiny bumps. Also, this looks really nice on eyes to highlight the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes.

Staying power is also pretty good and it gets even better if you use it over a liquid foundation prior to setting the foundation with any finishing powder. In humid weather, it stays on me for about 4-6 hours average. The formula is somewhat sweat resistant but touching or rubbing it will tone down the finish.

Price, for the quality and quantity is pretty reasonable since the pigmentation is really high.

Overall, I am so in love with this highlighter and that is why it ended up being in my Favorite Face Products of 2012.

To Summarize:


  • Highly pigmented.
  • Easy to build and blend.
  • Can be used on face, body and eyes.
  • Powder is super fine.
  • Stays for 4-6 hours.
  • Sweat resistant.
  • Would suit almost every skin tone.
  • Suitable for sensitive skin type as well.
  • Non irritant.


  • I could not find anything negative about this product.
