Lisa Eldridge Solar Light Elevated Glow Highlighter ($ 38.00 for 0.43 oz.) Is a light to medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a soft, glowing sheen. The texture was fluid, light, and thin with a slightly watery slip, although not so watery that it was difficult to work with. It had a longer dry time – three minutes – but was more resistant to transfer and never sticky afterwards. When applied to bare skin and left on, I could definitely see that my skin looked a bit smoother and reflective.
It had sheer color coverage as marketed, although the intensity of the glow was more buildable when layered. Whether applied as a single layer or built up, my cheek area never looked more structured and smoother than it really was. This shade wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

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 increased to 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.
