Marc Jacobs Beauty Moonlit Glow Away Dewy Coconut Face Illuminant ($ 32.00 for 0.16 oz.) Is a pale pink with cool undertones and a barely-there satin sheen. It has definitely fulfilled its “glitter-free” promise; It was rather a very, very finely ground shimmer that turned into a very low highlighter. I didn’t get a “wet” or glassy effect on my skin – as if my moisturizer had naturally given it a wetter finish.
The formula is said to result in a “shiny glass skin” or a “moist, internally illuminated appearance”. It reminded me of a waterier, less intense version of the brand’s larger Dew Drops, which is infinitely better value and serves a similar purpose (I think it’s more versatile too). It had a very thin, watery consistency that was fairly dry, so it didn’t retain much moisture. The shimmer was fairly fine, so it didn’t lie well under a foundation (since it completely disappeared) and had to be applied over (or on bare skin), but my foundation moved and stained. It really seemed to be something best suited for bare skin or a thin, lighter, water-based foundation.
It is unclear how high the level of pigmentation should be, although it is based on “glass skin”, it seems to suggest something sharper (I can’t even find brand patterns!). It took six and a half hours to visibly fade.
