Here is what Sephora has to say about the Tarte Brighter Days Highlighting Moisturizer - Give skin a natural-looking glow with Brighter Days Highlighting Moisturizer. This lightweight facial lotion is formulated with 70 percent water and light-reflecting mineral pigments to quench dull, dehydrated skin while delivering a sheer veil of illumination and radiance. The sweat-resistant formula is perfect for before or after the gym, or even for faking an afterglow without the sweat session. It can be worn alone or under your makeup for a subtle sheen. This hypoallergenic multitasker works to soften, smooth, and deliver a long-lasting surge of moisture without clogging pores.

I have had this moisturizer sitting in a drawer forever, well over a year! I finally grabbed it out of the drawer and decided to give it a try this past month. It doesn’t have a bad smell to it, but it does have a slight fragrance to it that does go away after a few minutes. I didn’t find this to be very moisturizing at all, my face actually started to feel tight after a few hours. It did dry down fairly quickly though and my face didn’t feel tacky or sticky.

As you can see from the above pictures, this moisturizer has a ton of shimmer in it. I didn’t really notice it until I had put it all over my face as a regular moisturizer. That was my first mistake! I went outside and my sister told me that my face was full of glitter! I has very shiny for the day. I did try this out under makeup as well, and the shine showed through my makeup as well. I find that the glitter in this is just to much for a moisturizer. As I am writing this I am thinking it may work out better as a liquid highlighter, which I haven’t tried with it.

Have you tried a ‘Highlighting Moisturizer’? Was it a glitter bomb as well?
