I believe it is meant to be mixed into your foundation, but I liked it best when I blended a tiny amount onto my cheeks and brow bone as a highlighter; it really did impart a nice luminizing finish when used this way.

Irina, you use it with your foundation or tinted moisturizer (that's what I use) and all you need is a small squirt! A little goes a long way! You do not want that over glowed look.

It truly depends on the undertone of your skin. If roses, pinks, silver, white, and gem tones flatter you, you are probably "cool" and have a pink undertone. If you are flattered by golds, rusts, browns, and earthy greens, then you are most likely "warm," and have a yellow/olive undertone. Select the one which matches your skintone. If all of the above flatter you, choose either shade.

I would probably say the lightest of all the shades the diffuse. Flash may work but it has somewhat of a pink undertone and if you are very pale it might show up more than you would like. Diffuse would probably look the most natural and compliment your features like your red hair the best. Hope this helped!

Your coloring sounds like mine except my eyes are mid-to-dark green. I use Flash, which will balance out the yellow in your skin well. I found the bronze color to be too dark and fake-looking, and the Diffuse color is a sheer white shimmer that would be better for small areas (like inner eye corner and browbone) rather than for the whole face.

I personally love Diffuse. I have pale skin and it really adds the shimmer that I love on my cheekbones, brow bone, and inner corners of my eyes. It's a great product that will last forever, seeing as how you only need a little :)

The ingredients that would cause a great deal of skin irritation (to those suffering from highly sensitized skin), are as follows: glycerin, magnesium aluminum silicate, safflower seed oil, phospholipids, titanium, iron oxides, and, for those with an allergy, remember it contains green tea and gingko!

No sparkles at all! It's more of a pearlescent, luminizing finish - no glitter involved :)

The "sparkle" in this product is not an actual chunk of glitter.
It is subtle, and you must blend with your foundation to achieve the look of luminescence. Remember to chose based on your actual skin tone, not that of a look you want, after say, a week in Florida. Tan's fade, and the lighter the color of the product, the more natural your "sparkle" will be.

I have your same complexion and had the same question for the expert in the store before buying. It turns out, the different tones don't eliminate each other. The white one will give you more of a sheer luminizing effect, whereas the glow one will give you a tan glow. It depends on what effect you are trying to achieve: if you want a little reflection, I'd go with the white one. But, since you have olive skin, I think the glow will have more to add to your complexion than the other one. The one in glow gives gives you that Jlo/red carpet effect without being overpowering. I use everyday under my foundation in the cheek area and overall for a night event. It really takes out the best of olive/medium to light dark skin tones.

My younger sister is fair skinned as well and I use "Glow" on her and it looks amazing right now since it is the summer time and she has a bit of a tan (you know, that lovely post-burn kind). However, if you stay pretty fair I would suggest going with "Flash" as opposed to "Diffuse" as the latter ends up looking like you used a not-so-flattering frosty eyeshadow.

Based on your complexion we recommend either Glow (warm golden bronze) which will help to enhance your skin tone and give you that gorgeous glow or Diffuse (glistening pearl) which will give you a more luminous complexion and act as a highlighter. We hope this answers your question!
