Today I'll be reviewing the first of five products that my best friend Megan got me as an early birthday gift - the Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator. She got the shade Peach Light for me, but there are three other shades to choose from (including one suitable for pale beauties and one for darker beauties!). Before I continue I just want to apologize for the quality of the photos in advance.. The weather was crazy when I took them and would go from sunny to dark and rainy in two minutes!
As you can see, this illumiator comes packaged in a rather large squeeze tube. They're much bigger then they look, containing 30mL of product, and will last you a long, long time considering you really don't need much.
Let's get right to the verdict, shall we? I'm really liking this product! I never had the chance to try the original Skinlights, which were quite sought after once they were discontinued!, so I can't compare them to these new ones unfortunately.

This illuminator has a thin, lotion-like consistency and is super easy to blend and apply. I had no problems with formula, application, or anything! As you can see, Peach Light is a beautiful glowing peach that I think suits my summer skin-tone really well. On the cheekbones it just gives that lovely, healthy summer glow.. think J-Lo! I imagine it would also look nice if you mixed a bit of it in with your foundation, but I haven't tried that out myself yet.
The Photoready Skinlights do lean a bit more expensive (I saw them for as much as $13CAN at one spot) but it's a great product and you're getting a ton of it! If you're interested or loved the previous Skinlights then I do recommend them. And once again.. thank you so much Megan for getting me this product! I feel like I can't thank you enough!
