Marc Jacobs Magnificence Sunlit Glow Away Luminizer Overview & Swatches

Marc Jacobs Beauty Sunlit Glow Away Tau Coconut Face Luminizer ($ 32.00 for 0.16 oz.) Is a light, peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and a satin sheen that has a hint of moisture. There was a very faint glow on my skin, but it didn’t really feel wet to me – it lacked some of that inherent glow and shine, even though the product had a subtle pearlescent on my skin.

The formula is said to result in a “shiny glass skin” or a “moist, internally illuminated appearance”. It reminded me of a more watery, less intense version of the brand’s larger Dew Drops, which is infinitely better in value and serves a similar purpose (I think it’s more versatile too). This product tended to lift the foundation because it was so watery and thin that it was difficult to hold in place and had a visible cover. Then, however, it dried out quite a bit, so it didn’t retain much moisture. The shimmer was pretty fine, so it wasn’t well under a primer and needed to be applied over (or on bare skin).

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 was six and a half hours before it faded noticeably.
