My experience

Being a huge lover of Argan Oil myself, this product is very dear to me. Built with such a natural ingredient, the most important benefit is it provides a lot of nourishment to the skin. Who would not love a cosmetics which also helps the skin! The texture is thin but not runny. I mix it with my foundation sometime and use it on the high points on my face. It leaves an intense glow along with a little shimmer because of the glitter particles present in the product. The glitter particles will reflect light from your face giving your look a shimmery radiance. I apply a small amount on my upper cheekbones as a highlight along with on my eyelids and brow bone, on the bridge of my nose, and any remainder on the rest of my face and neck. Lasts all day and makes my skin look and feel amazing.

Tips and Tricks

Dab along the top of the cheekbone, blending out to just above your eyebrow, using your fingers or a beauty blender. Take it down the centre of your nose, middle of your forehead and chin, and place a tiny amount on your cupid’s bow. Applying it to the lip area helps your lips look bigger, particularly if you’re wearing nude lipstick or clear gloss.


It is available easily in all Sephora stores or online. I would suggest to try a sample first just to make sure it matches with your skin tone. The price is quite right and this lasts a long time since you use it a little at a time. Please find the link below.
