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

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).

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.

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.

answer 2
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

If you have a yellow or warm undertone, then go for Stardust. If you're more pink or have a cool undertone, go for Light Beam.

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!

I think you can do either color, honestly- I think color 2 is best for everyone , its nude, color 1 is whitier and more obvious looking

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.

For darker skin you should get the golden luminzer. The silvery one is more for fair skin.

I love Star Dust, I feel that the other highlighter is to pink for a darker skin tone whereas the lighter whiter highlighter actually has a hint of yellow in it and blends beautifully with all skin tone shades

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.

Im not sure what is Ambien Lights but this does provide a gorgeous sheen that does not break you out( I didnt break out from using this) I purchased the gold, if you have a store in your area its best to go and try it.

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.

The stardust looks like the same color as the lightest shade in the Sultry trio.
The lightbeam single shade may be one of the more pink lightest shades in another trio, but I cannot be sure. Maybe the Sweet trio.
