REAL WORLD USE:

Here is an unedited proof from a recent shoot that I used the Ck One Color Skin Illuminator on. I used the shade “cool” on the top of the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and on the bow of the lip. Notice how it catches and bounces the light back so beautifully. It’s not “glittery” at all, and just looks like dewy, healthy skin.

MY THOUGHTS:

So far, the Ck One Color line has not let me down; not one bit! This is my favorite highlighter, next to the FACE atelier highlighters. I don’t think I could choose which I like more, quite honestly. I love the texture of this because it is very thick, and stays in place. Some highlighters (like the Benefit one) are too “liquidy” for my taste. When the formulas are too runny, they dry super fast and don’t allow much time for blending — and they matte down, instead of staying dewy, which leaves behind a shimmer, instead of a sheen. I really like this highlighter, a lot! I use it on most photoshoots these days. The only complaint that I have is the packaging. I don’t like that the top snaps on and off. I would prefer a more secure closure for the bottle, as things shift in our makeup kits, and the threat of a spill from this product is always imminent. Other than that, A+ all around!
