Company’s Description

MAKE UP FOR EVER has created Uplight, a silky gel which naturally lights up the face. The skin is healthy, the complexion is fresh and radiant. Uplight contains reflecting pigments which capture and diffuse light. Thanks to its smooth texture, it can easily be applied to the skin, on its own or mixed with foundation. Its formula contains 70% of water for a light and hydrating texture, paired with an optimum hold. You now have the key to a perfect complexion.

Make Up For Ever’s Uplight illuminator comes in 8 shades and 3 different finishes: silky, pearly, or sparkling.

This review is for shade 22–a pink flesh color with a pearly finish.

Packaging: 9.75/10

This illuminator comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. The pump dispenser is great for keeping the product free of bacteria and the packaging clean. I do wish the pump were more precise, though. It’s difficult to dispense the exact amount you want.

Quality: 9/10

Shade 22 is a very light pink color. The formula is very thin without being watery, but dries pretty quickly, so you need to blend it across the skin in a short amount of time.

This illuminator leaves quite a frosty finish, which makes it much more appropriate for nighttime and dramatic looks than for daytime wear. It is long-lasting without needing to set it with a powder.

Ease of Use: 8.75/10

You need to work quickly because the product will dry shortly after dispensing. Make sure to blend well in circular motions, otherwise this strong illuminator will show a demarcating line on the skin.

Price: 8/10

For $29.00, you get 0.55 ounces. For $19.50, you get 0.6 ounces in MAC’s Lustre Drops. NARS Illuminators are $29.00 and contain 1.1 ounces.

    I’d much rather a glowy finish, that just looks too shimmery, even for evening.
