Questions & Answers for SEPHORA COLLECTION MicroSmooth Baked Luminizer

Question
Payoff?
Does this product have good payoff? My definition of good payoff would be "TheBalm's Mary Luminizer", so in terms of how much product shows up, I just want to know if it is heavy or light.

This is more of a light coverage. It's really subtle but give of a nice glow if you build it up. It's also alittle glittery.

answer 4
It’s not a heavily pigmented product which I find makes it much easier to use than something really concentrated. You can either have it look very subtle or build for denser shimmer. I love that I can work with it instead of it automatically being very noticable.

I do not consider this heavy (i ordered it in light beam). I started with just a small amount and gently strokes across the tops of my cheek bones and the payoff was just a very beautiful luminous look. Subtle but gorgeous. I added more, small amounts at a time, until I achieved what I wanted. I think this is an excellent product, since you go achieve a light natural glow, or an extravagent beautiful luminous effect.

it's heavy. But if you apply very little it'll look great. I have never used the balm product so I can't really compare

Question
Which color should I get?
I have light/medium tan skin and brown eyes and hair. I'm ok with glitter, but I don't want to look like I brushed sparkles all over my face. I don't know if the yellow toned highlighter will look natural enough with my skin tone.

I would say that they both provide a sheerer coverage and there is no real color payoff, BUT the more pink color is definitely very glittery, and I would recommend the more yellow tone regardless.

Stardust is a light golden shimmer, and the darker shade is a beigey gold shimmer.

answer 4
It's hard to tell on pictures because of monitor lighting differences, I would say... It would be best to go to the nearest Sephora store to try swatches on your skin. But from going to the store, I would say that neither is the colour a beige one or a peachy one. I would say that it's more of a champagne mixed with a light pink (if that makes sense).

Stardust especially if you have some yellow undertones. But I would say that Light Beam would be the most flattering for any kind of colour complexion as it has champagne/pink undertones to it.

Either would look great. It just depends on what you are wanting. The pinker one has a bit of glitter, while the white one has no glitter, only a sheer gold sheen, which is a beautiful highlight.

I am extremely pale as well and I found that stardust looked better on my skin. I have cool-leaning neutral undertones if that helps. I also swatched both in store to compare and i feel like stardust is more suited for fair skin and the other is more for darker skin tones. Hope this helps!

If you have yellow/warm skin get Stardust..it's a light gold color similar to Nars Albatross. But usually pale skin has cool undertones, so I'd get Light beam. (Cool skin has blue veins). If you're neutral like me you could get either.

I have very, very pale skin and the Light Beam color blends in nicely. The other color would be more noticeable if you want a bolder highlight.

Can this be compared in any way to Hourglass' Ambient Lights?
Since Ambients Lights are so forbiddingly expensive (for some of us), could this be considered a substitute? Thanks!

I would swatch them onto your skin to see how they show on your complexion. The Hourglass ambient light does have a more subtle glow as opposed to th Star Dust.'s 'sparkle'

I don't know about comparing it but it is a great product, you will be happy. One thing I need to warn you is a little goes a long way. I realized about this when i got to work and the lights there are different and I looked like a disco ball. So you need to be careful with the amount. Otherwise it's a great product. I use number 2 because I have medium toned skin.

It is about a 2" diameter round, and pretty domed. You get a lot of product. Especially if used only on the tops of your cheekbones and under the brow arch, this'll last forever
