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.
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.
GOOD ONLY IF YOU'RE YOUNG WITH NO DISCOLORATIONS..
Date:June 6, 2010
Best For young people with no discoloration!
I thought this might be worth a shot, and despite not seeing any difference after I put it on, I kept using it daily, hoping that maybe I'd notice SOMETHING after I'd used it, perhaps in the right lighting or something.....well, no such luck! I don't have terribly visible skin discoloration (dark brown spots that are obvious) but I do have slight melasma left over from pregnancy (very vague diffuse light brownish discoloration in areas), which makes skin overall not as even-toned or bright. If you have skin like this, don't buy this product - it won't help you (buy a great foundation, like Futurist!). If you're young with no discoloration, it probably does a nice job!
In the past few years, I've noticed a dullness in my complexion - I'm in my early 50s. This Perfector gives my skin a subtle glow that brightens my face. Also, with their special ingredients, it has also improved the size of my pores and the texture of my skin. I usually don't bother with these reviews, but I thought it might help those still questioning to purchase. I thank those who previously posted for motivating me to get mine.
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.
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.
I had to write an update because I am so impressed with how well this has worked after three months. I use as directed, a.m. and p.m. My forehead used to have a very obvious sun spot, and it has lightened significantly. In addition, my skin looks healthier, younger, and moister. The "glow" certainly comes from the iridescence of the cream itself, but the fact that my skin tone is more even helps also. I hope EL never stops producing this formula, and at this price! I think the tube will last me nearly a year. What a deal!
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.
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!
Best For Minimizing Pores, Brightening, Smoothing Lines, All Skintypes
I have been using Estee Lauder products for years. I have seen Spotlight advertised, but never really paid attention to what it did, Well I decided to give it a try. Just got it today and after 1 application, wow, what a difference! It definitely perfected my skin tone. I NEVER think I don't need makeup, but after applying spotlight, I looked in the mirror and really felt like I didn't need makeup. I put a little eye shadow, and lip gloss and was presentable in about 5 minutes. Tomorrow I am going to try my powder foundation over this and see what it does. It appears to be an excellent primer. And I have used alot of primers over the years. My hat is off to Estee Lauder on this product!! Love it!!
I have used spotlight for several years,several different ways. As a makeup artist, I add it to some foundations to make them more "photo friendly", I also use it directly on the cheek bones as a high-lighter after I've applied the foundation, then I blend it into the blush. It gives a beautiful,natural radiant glow that looks great in photos.
Everything others have written is true. I use it just as directed, after moisturizer a.m. and p.m., for skin care purposes (not as a foundation enhancer as others use it). I've only been using it for two weeks, and my complexion has dramatically improved. It has even made my big blotchy sunspot on my forehead fade! It smells lovely, and just a pea-size amount covers my face. This and the Idealist eye cream are must haves. More than any other EL skin care product, they absolutely improve skin quality and tone.
I actually buy this for my 84 year old mother, who already has beautiful skin but is no longer able to apply a foundation easily. She absolutely loves this and cannot live without it. It gives her skin a radiant glow immediately and everyone compliments her. It looks completely natural and the fact that it is nourishing her skin at the same time is a big bonus.
Best For All Skintypes, beautiful natural looking skin!
After using Spotlight, I simply can't ever go back to not using it. It really gives my skin a more consistent and non blotchy look that I love (makes my make-up look better, makes my skin look better). It is something I reach for even on days that I'm not wearing make-up. When I wear it alone, it makes natural skin have a nice, even tone. I love Spotlight!
Best For Minimizing Pores, Brightening, Smoothing Lines, All Skintypes, stunning
i use this when im not using my bronzer and this product is amazing i was afriad to use it cause of my acne but it didnt cause anymore im glad i bought this product it dont make me look fake and it dont make my face look blotchy i look real and good it also covers my past blemishes scars anyone should try this product you will look awesome
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'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.
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!
