Enters a new discovery: Illamasqua Lies cream blush.
Lies is a very pale pearlescent cream blusher. It will actually hardly show up as a blusher but the color in it does add some extra dimension that a regular cream highlighter like Gleam does not have. It does performs extremely well in the glow department, to the point that you could make your skin look like plastic with it if you wanted.
How I use it: I start with applying a little bit of a regular blush, here Illamasqua Naked Rose - because I find that Lies on its own does not give me enough color for my liking.
Then, I pat Lies on top with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. And bham: mega glow.
Color wise, this is foolproof, but as I said it can look unnatural (and feel a bit sticky) if you go overboard, so try to stay reasonable with it.
