Your list of beauty buys is likely growing each week as you inch further and further into spring; however, if you're still on the hunt for a product to give you that natural glow, look no further than ILIA's Liquid Light Highlighter. Described as "radiance in a bottle," the clean-beauty brand's latest launch will not only give you the dewy complexion you're after, but it'll do it without involving icky ingredients — making it a strong contender for a spot on your beauty shelf.
ILIA's serum highlighter is available just in time for you to start getting your glow on for all those upcoming summer events. Ringing in for $42 a bottle, the gel-based formula's blend of organic and natural botanicals is available in three shimmering shades, including a soft gold called "Nova," a rose gold hue named "Astrid," and a pearly pink dubbed "Atomic."
And while Liquid Light will certainly bring a metallic luminosity to your face, it goes beyond the surface by using ingredients to care for your skin on a deeper level. Most notable? The formula's use of marine actives, which the brand notes can help protect your complexion against UV light and pollution. Additionally, the product contains hydrolyzed algin, which the brand explains is an algae-derived ingredient that "helps control oil and bacteria while conditioning skin."
For all-over illumination, mix the highlighter with your go-to daily complexion product, be it moisturizer or foundation. As for any extra serum left on your finger tips? ILIA founder Sasha Plavsic's pro tip is to apply it to "eyelids and cheek bones for extra glow." The bridge of your nose and above your cupid's bow are other light-hitting locations to consider bringing attention to with a wash of metallic.
Need one more reason to bring a bottle into your beauty bag? Not only is this product cruelty-free and vegan, but it contains no silicone, gluten, soy, nanoparticles, parabens, phthalates, and sulfates. Other undesirable ingredients it leaves out? Petro-chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and synthetic dyes. Sold on it yet?
If so, don't hit checkout just yet, because these highlighters aren't the only multi-tasking products to join the ILIA family of late. After you add a shade of Liquid Light to your cart, take a peek at the newly launched Color Haze Multi Matte Pigments for $32 each. Offered in five shades that range from a warm nude to a burnt orange, the nourishing cream formula can be used to bring color to your lips as well as your cheeks. And, since it works double duty, this versatile product will be a must-have for your upcoming weekend getaways.
