Summertime embodies the very idea of a gorgeous golden glow, and this is the time of the year that beauty mavens seek out the perfect highlighters and luminizers to create a sun-kissed radiant effect. One such product that imparts the perfect golden peachy glow is Japonesque's Liquid Light Luminescent Highlighter in Shade 02. This shimmering beauty can be used on the face, neck and décolleté to give the skin an ethereal shimmering glow, or a little can be mixed into your favorite foundation, tinted moisturizer or BB and CC Creams to add a luminous dewy finish that captures the sun beautifully.

It can be applied directly to the skin with your fingers, or you can apply it with a brush. I have been testing it with the Japonesque BB/CC Cream Brush (reviewed here) and with my fingers, and I love the finish both ways. It applies evenly, spreads across the skin effortlessly, and neither settles into pores, nor does it emphasize fine lines.

It is available in three shades: Shade 01, Shade 02 and Shade 03. I haven't seen shades 01 and 03 in person, but their stock swatches seem to indicate that Shade 01 has a little pink in it, and Shade 03 is a darker peachy bronze.
According to Japonesque,

Liquid Light dresses skin in an illuminating veil of radiance. This innovative light-reflecting liquid glides on to refresh the skin and enhance the complexion's natural glow - creating a beautiful shimmering incandescence that 'lights skin from within'. Translucent, weightless formula gives instant radiance and luminosity to the complexion and can be used alone as a makeup base or as a highlighting accent to shape and lift the facial contours. Use alone to illuminate skin where required or mix with foundation to add extra dimension.

Directions: Lightly blend over cheekbones to illuminate and add extra dimension.

Overall Assessment: Japonesque Liquid Light Highlighter in Shade 02 is a very pretty highlighter that gives the skin a gorgeous peachy golden glow. I like to add a little to my BB Cream, CC Cream, or Tinted Moisturizer for just a hint of added luminosity, and the effects are stunning. Shade 02 does have a decidedly warm undertone, and if you find it too warm for your skin tone then you might prefer Shade 01 since it appears to have a pinker base.
