LISTEN UP.
If you're torn on whether or not to buy these because of the mixed reviews, ignore all of the Negative Nellies and listen to ME! Redheads, you've got to drop the twenty bucks and buy these lustre drops in Pink Rebel! It adds a gorgeous sunkissed effect without looking fake and orangy. I was originally torn between Sun Rush and Pink Rebel, and I'm so happy I ended up going with Pink Rebel. Trust me, it's worth it. And don't let the name fool ya; it's not pink. It's definitely bronze. If you're looking for a liquid blush, skip these. These are definitely bronzy, not pink. Pink Rebel is light enough to pass as a highlight if you're olive-skinned or dark, but for us fair skinned children, it adds a bronzy effect that's just LOVELY. Go for it. You'll be glad you did, I pinky promise (:

Lustre Drops
Tags +all skin types
Combine a small amount of the Lustre Drops shade of your choice (slightly smaller than pea size) with Pro-long Wear Liquid Foundation and apply to face for a lovely, fresh look that lasts through activity, heat and humidity, all day! This technique definatley provides just enough of a mineralize finish that reflects light, without being overkill.

Beautiful!!
Tags +Highlighting
I usually mix this with my liquid studio fix foundation nc 50 and apply and it gives me a very pretty natural looking all over glow ( I have the color in sun rush) You can also use a little to highlight under eye fore head and bridge of nose(the spots the sun would naturally hit for a nice luminous glow

NOT FOR DRY SKIN
Tags +people with oily skin
I was looking for a glow and the MAC artist suggested lustre drops in the pink tone. I told her a few times my skin is dry and asked if this would dry me out at all and she reassured me it would not. She told me to mix 3-4 drops into my foundation for an all-over glow, it wasn't really the look I was hoping for but it wasn't as flat as normal so I was open to see how it wore through the day. About 1/2 way through the day my nose and chin were so flaky it was horrible!!! Do not buy if you have dry skin!

Great Addition To Your Routine!
Tags +Highlighting, added a healthy glow to foundation
I purchased Sun Rush about a month ago and absolutely fell in love! Mixed in my foundation or applied as a highlighter it gives a beautiful natural glow (even for WOC). I also purchased Barbados Girl recently and am definitely glad I added it to my collection. I will eventually add the pink one to my kit.

Not for extremely dry skin...
Tags +glow
Just a heads up to those who want to buy this, I would not recommend it if you have extremely dry skin. Yes it adds a nice little glow but if you wear foundation for longer than eight hours it is going to dry up and become flaky. This is usually the case when I use the lustre drops on myself and my clients. So please be aware of it before you decide to purchase.

Amazing
Just bought this today and I'm already in love. I have oily skin so I use almost all matte products, but when I add Sun Rush to my cheeks it looks so healthy and glowy without making me look shiny. I totally recommend for anyone who wants to achieve that natural summer glow!

Multi-use
Tags +Highlighting, foundation
I purchase the luster drop few months ago. I love it.
I mostly wear it with my foundation, just apply two-three drops
mix it w.your stippling brush - & it gives you a dewy-glowing look.
Now don't have to spend money on another foundation. You can also use
it as a highlight , you'll only need one drop for both cheeks , and it'll also give you
a dewy glow highlight.

Beautiful Glow
I love this stuff. Sometimes I mix it with my foundation if I want to change it up from my Strobe Cream, and sometimes I use it as a highlighter. A must have for summer.

Love it...but you gotta know how to use it!
Tags +studio fix foundation
I use studio fix, which is a flat foundation, so I bought this in the pink tone and use about 1 to 2 drops depending on how much foundation I pumped out. Mix with the back of a brush (pointy is preferable) and apply foundation the way you do. It gives such a nice glow, natural, and everywhere I go I always get compliments on my skin and makeup.

Not 4 Me
I was hoping for a liquid bronzer that looked natural. This product did not add much color and settled into lines and pores, making them look deeper. This product is best for young skin with small pores. It adds a lustre, as advertised and the Sun Rush color is pretty, but does not mimic a tan in any way.

I've seen a few people use this, Youtube gurus and MAC artists, it looks really reliable, and super blendable, and glowy. I just ordered it. :)

Great Summer Bronzer
Tags +bronzing, glow
I bought this in the color Sun Rush and it's a gorgeous liquid bronzer that livens up the skin. It is shimmery, so if you prefer matte bronzers, look elsewhere. I apply it over foundation with a stippling brush in the same areas as I would a powder. It lasts throughout the entire day and wears well. The color is perfect, not too orange and doesn't look at all muddy. It really appears like you have spent time somewhere warm for vacation! I am quite pale, NC/W 15 and I find it's a good color for me. I would also suggest mixing with foundation for an all over glow.

love at first drop
Tags +Highlighting
I'm in love with this product ! I purchased the sun rush a couple of weeks ago and it gives you a perfect glow. I use it to highlight my cheekbones and all you need is one little drop. If you are hesitant in purchasing this product,don't be... It's worth every penny : )

Awesome!
Tags +bronzing, adding a flush
I absolutely love this product. I already have a liquid bronzer (sunbeam, from benefit) but after I bought "pink rebel" I am using it all the time. It has just the right amount of shimmer, and it adds a subtle but bronze flush. It is not really pinky, and a little goes a long way. I also love how it can go into my smallest makeup bag! I am always on the run, so portability is important. I use this in winter, and people ask me where I got my facial or tan. I tell them "I didn't!" And suggest my secret to success. WORKS WONDERS!!

Simply beautiful
Tags +combination skin
Just gorgeous to dab on the top of your cheekbones! I bought both colors of lustre drops last night and I've only tried sun rush on my cheeks so far. And a little goes a long way. I will also try to drop a couple of drops in my foundation in the future. But overall I really like the product. Again, a little goes a long way. Worth the money!
