Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in Bronze Shimmer Review and Swatches

I love myself some shimmer, and I was happy to try out Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer when it was sent to me for consideration. Although I don't get on very well with liquid highlighters, this is more of a base product that you can mix with your foundation or lotion for a radiant glow.

I got Bronze Shimmer which is a golden bronzy colour. It's good for adding a bit of a sun-lissed glow to your skin. I'm fairly pale even after the summer (yeah I know, what summer?), but this wasn't at all dark for me. The shimmery liquid that comes in a small bottle with a brush in the lid that you can use to apply the product with. It's fairly runny which makes it very blendable.

I like it, but I don't love it. Used under foundation the glow pretty much disappears. If used mixed into a lotion, it will give a more all-over glow which I'm not sure I want on my face. You can dab it onto your cheeks and blend it, it does blend out very easily and isn't too shimmery, certainly not glittery or metallic. I just don't feel like it's a must have product myself, and to be honest I'm not sure I would pay £16 for it. You get 14 ml which is plenty, probably way more than you would ever use up.

Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer is available in 4 shades: Bronze Shimmer, Kitten Shimmer, Pink Shimmer and Rose Gold Shimmer. They can be purchased from BeautyBay and Stila directly for £16.
