So I bought few highlighters, shimmer bricks and this Manna Kadar GLO Illuminator is latest addition to my collection which I got from Glamego Subscription Box.

My Experience with the Manna Kadar GLO Illuminator:-
The texture of this GLO Illuminator is quite creamy with fine shimmers in it. It actually feels like a rose gold moisturizer with a bit of glow. And the thing I most liked about this illuminator is that it blends like a dream. Use it mixed with foundation, body lotion or just like that it so amazingly blends into it and looks like a second skin. It’s very light weighted and you will never feel as if you have applied anything, once dried no oiliness or greasiness is left behind. This makes it perfect for any skin type.
I’m a bit disappointed by its pigmentation, when I swatched it over my hands it gave an amazing Rose Gold glow, but on face it don’t look the same. It has very few shimmers in it, so it fails to provide that blinding glow on the face. But yes as per the brand claims you can get a subtle natural glow. It’s great for Day outings or a No Makeup look, but if you are looking for a glam look then it’s not for you. In that case just apply it mixed with foundation for a subtle glow and a top it up with your regular highlighter for a perfect blinding glow.
When I applied it mixed with my L’Oreal Foundation it stayed up with foundation. But when applied on high points as a highlighter for a bit of glow, it doesn’t last more than 3 hours without primer. I always have to top it up with my shimmer brick to make it stay longer.
So overall I have a mixed review about this Manna Kadar GLO Illuminator, it’s great for a natural glow but not for a blinding glow. It doesn’t stays beyond 3 hours which is quite disappointing, but I like using it mixed with my foundation for a nice look.

Things I don’t like about the Manna Kadar GLO Illuminator:-

My Recommendation on the Manna Kadar GLO Illuminator:-
As I said earlier I have a Love Hate relationship with it. If you love a subtle glow, which I mostly do then it’s good for you. But it you want something more blinding, then definitely invest in something else!!!
