Lisa Eldridge Cosmic Rose Elevated Glow Highlighter ($ 38.00 for 0.43 oz.) Is a light, golden peach with an ultra-fine pearl that gives it a soft, glowing sheen when it rests on the skin and dries. It wasn’t transfer-safe, but it was fairly transfer-resistant, and it was important to let it cure because that was how you achieved the “smoothing” effect that helped the product blend in better with the skin and appear reflective and radiant without being visible to shimmer.
The texture felt light, thin, and a little watery, but it was still easy to work with bare skin and applied on top of the foundation as well. I would recommend using a small amount as it is very easy to spread, which will help it keep its transparency (as marketed), but it can be applied over a larger area than desired. The intensity of the glow could be built up by adding a second layer. It took a good eight hours before it faded noticeably.

The formula is described as a “transparent, slightly tinted and skin-adaptable base” with “small” pearls that give the skin a “glowing and seamless” highlighting effect. In addition, it should have a “subtle tightening and smoothing of the skin”. The intensity of the pearl can be built up depending on the brand.
It had a soft, luminous sheen that wasn’t so dewy that it blended into an oily area, and had a fine pearl that glowed without emphasizing the texture of the skin. The effect could be increased by applying more product as described. As on the market, the pigmentation was transparent and, if desired, could be built up to give a semi-transparent to medium opacity.
The best way to see the subtle smoothing effect is to apply the product directly to bare skin, leave it on (three minutes as recommended by the brand) and then add basic products as desired. I found that the formula was definitely more smooth this way, although it never added to the texture of my skin even when applied directly over the foundation.
The consistency was thin, light and watery, so the easiest way to apply it was to dab a little on the back of my hand, then use a fingertip or dab brush to pick up the product and dab it on my skin. The product was easy to apply to bare skin as well as base products, as this approach did not tend to lift the foundation. When I applied directly over the foundation with the deer foot applicator, the product appeared to be over applied and too wet, making it harder to work with and spreading over a larger area than I intended.
It lasted a good eight and a half hours before it faded a little on me.
