I am a complete highlighter addict and always remain in search of new products to help in giving me that ‘lit from within’ or ‘shimmering cheekbones’ look. I am sure you too also remain in search of such products. I got opportunity to try Manna Kadar Glo Illuminator as I received it in a subscription box. To be honest I would have never purchased it as at that time it was a new name for me as well as price too was on higher side. Now its almost 1 year that I am using this product so lets talk about it 🙂

Price: 2100 Rs.
Qt: 20 ml
Shelf life: Not mentioned.
Online availability: Here
Direction of use: You can either use it alone or mix in with the foundation. I found that mixing it into foundation doesn’t help much.
Packaging: This illuminator comes in a squeeze tube, which looks peachy. Basically tube is transparent & it is product’s color which giving it a peachy look. Tube is sleek and easily slips in a purse or clutch. Only thing which is bothering me that this product is tagged at a high price still the packaging is very basic (unlike luxury products) and basic information like shelf life, manufacturing date etc is missing from the packaging.
My opinion about the product: This illumiantor has a lotion like consistency with shimmery particles. You can either use it alone or mix in with the foundation. I found that mixing it into foundation doesn’t help much. So I use a small brush to apply this product into my cheekbones. You can also apply it on your face but I personally don’t as I hate shimmery thing all over my face. However applying on cheekbones gives a soft and subtle glow (shimmering cheekbones) & I look glowy!!!
The formula is very light weight & easily gets blend. A small amount is enough for my cheek bones so this single tube is working for me from last 9-10 months 😉 It’s a warm peachy shade which works for my skin tone but I am afraid that it not gonna suit to each & every skin tones. If any one is using it & reading my blog, please let me know if it suits your skin tone or not. Overall I found it an average product which gives you a dewy effect but nothing exciting (We expect from luxury products). It’s OK to receive it in a subscription box where you pay 400-500 Rs for 4-5 products but paying 2,100 will definitely hurt in heart. He he
