Best For a wonderful glow ease of applying foundation.
I have been using this wonderful tube of magic (for me) for years now just mixing a little with my foundation.
I went to purchase a month or so ago and was told it has been discontinued and the new primer, in 2 shades - one matte and one illuminating had taken it's place - was given samples of the one that illuminates and there was not in the least one tad of comparison.
EL why would you discontinue such a unique product - there is nothing out there to compare it to - and I've tried so many from major high end cosmetic companies - I don't know why EL discontinues so many things - in particular ones that have been around for so long with a good following.
I've been using this for so many years I can't recall when I first bought it. I am 72 years old, it's the one item I have on after moisturizing, even when I don't use anything else. Regardless...dressing up or just around the house, it's the product I can count on to even out my skin tone and help me feel my best.
I have used Spotlight since Estee Lauder created it. It is absolutely wonderful. In my younger days, I could use it all by itself to even out my complexion and give it a healthy glow. At age 68, I appreciate Spotlight's help in making my makeup work better. You can use it to thin out a heavy foundation if you want less coverage. Just a drop of foundation and a drop of Spotlight mixed in the palm of your hand gives you a nice, light coverage. When more coverage is desired, use the Spotlight first, then follow with foundation. To freshen up hours after you have made up, spread a little Spotlight on both hands, then pat onto your face.
I recently used this for the first time and LOVED it! I just turned 40 and am starting to see the signs of aging. The Spotlight has helped to even-out my skintone and lighten my freckles. It is very light and goes on smooth. I wear it everyday under my makeup and am re-ordering!
I read the reviews for this product, as most do, when they order something new. I've been using Estee Lauder product for about 10 years now and at 46, I have to say, this is probably the best product I have used to date. The Spotlight Skin Tone Perfector is an incredible addition to my daily regimen. It offers a radiant glow to your skin and can be used with or without makeup. I've had so many compliments on how great I look since I've been using it. Highly recomment it.
Spotlight is one of the BEST products of all time. It makes any skin type look instantly luminous. Want star power without the fuss? Use it on a just washed face (finished at the gym?, early morning grocery shopping?) -- no make-up required. Winter skin duldrums got you feeling like you only make the b-list? Get your skin on the A-List by using it under your favorite EL foundation. Win a Glammy by mixing it with foundation for a flawless floating finish. Dab it on the cheeks/mix it with your blush for that youthful, dewy starlet look. The spotlight is on...You're a star!
This is the first time I've tried Spotlight and I must say I agree with the other reviews. This is so lovely; lightweight with a subtle luminosity. I just love how it feels and looks on the skin. I am soon to be 56 and I don't wear makeup any longer so this is just perfect for me. It is one product that you have to try, you will be so happy that you did!
I really liked this the minute I put it on. My face felt smoother looked healthier and more radiant. I have only been using it a week but I can see a different already in the eveness of my skin and texture as well. just appears smoother and healthier
I was pleasantly surprised by this product, although I would expect exceptional quality from Estee Lauder. I apply this under my Double Wear Light makeup, and it makes my skin look smooth and finished. I will always wear this product, I'm sold on it. I have not tried it without makeup, on it's own, but I will to see how I like it. A must have for foundation wearers!
I have tried other products that highlight or illuminate your skin--paid a lot for Laura Mercer similar product. But Mercier's, and others, made my skin look shiny and fake. I was hesitant to try EL's, but it was offered along with Double Wear Light foundation and Highlighter and Makeup brush, so I bought the package deal. Wow--so glad I did. I love Spoltlight! I am in my early 60's and have very good skin, but all skin matures, no matter how good the condition. This product truly allows me to wear no makeup if I so choose. And, when I use it with the Double Wear Light foundation it makes the foundation apply like silk. I am impressed--so much so that I just ordered another Spotlight to be sure I do not run out. I have used EL products on and off over the years--but faithfully for all skin and makeup concerns for 2 years.
Once you apply it your skin looks so amazing with a healthy glow...it makes you wonder if you want to cover it up with make up at all? THAT'S how good this product is. I think the women at the sales counter should mention this product to us. Never once have they but its great and in my opinion, they should. I love it and will always have it here with me.
Ok every time I remember to wear this after my serum/moisturizer, before my foundation I'm amazed at how much LESS foundation product I'm able to use and how flawless my skin looks even by the time I get home from almost 10 hours of work day. I don't know exactly how this product does it, but whatever it is I hope that EL doesn't discontinue this stuff. I'm SURPRISED that not ONE beauty consultant at the EL counters have NEVER recommended me to use this product, I just happen to come across this online & read the reviews and thought to purchase to give it a go. I LOVE it. When it comes out of the tube it looks like an iridescent pink, but I guess its what's considered light reflection pigments so I assume that's what makes foundation look flawless.
This is a sort of unsung hero of the line and I was sold it as a way to thin out makeup to make it look like I wasn't wearing makeup. It is a thin creme, pink and iridescent, like the inside of a shell, speads easily and has a pleasant mild scent. It works well in thining out the Daywear Light makeup and buying you a little drying time, since DL dries so quickly. I can get a very light application that covers my marks yet doesn't make me look all made up. You could also use this alone for a "no makeup makeup" look. It has lightened my skin too, might be perfect for a person of age who has liver spots.
What can I say that hasn't been said already? I love this product. First used it over ten years ago and keep coming back. Especially great in the summer when powder won't do. Gives your skin a lovely glow and a dewy look. A definite EL favorite.
