Drugstore Pick #2: Revlon Photoready Skinlights Illuminator
I haven't always been a huge fan of highlighters or illuminators. When used the right way on Khloe Kardashian and JLo, they look AMAZING. But on a girl like me with sometimes-problematic skin, I've felt like I can't make it look the same.
Well duh. I ain't Khloe. Or even halfway to JLo.
But great news: Products like this Revlon goodie are super easy to use and have been greatly improved overall in the last few years...making it even more simple to get into that radiant, hydrated and youthful look without looking like a clown.
Fun fact: This Photoready Skinlights Illuminator once existed, but without a lot of attention or publicity. Revlon actually pulled it from the shelves and discontinued it. But their loyal customers who LOVED this product threw a fit. In the time that it took them to re-launch it and come out with new colors, bottles of this stuff were being sold on Ebay for $100 a tube!!!!! That's ten times the ticket price.
I LOVE this product. I've been using the NARS version for two years, which costs three times the price of this one. Same consistency, same fresh look, for a fraction of the price. It comes in four shades, to which I got the lightest. For dry girls, mix this in with your liquid foundation for a little glow. Or, use it how I do: with a finger down the middle of the nose, high cheek-bones, and under my eyebrows. When applied after foundation and concealer, it's super easy to blend into your skin with your fingers! Skip powder and embrace the glow for maximum effect.
