Silk Naturals Illuminating Powder in Flattery – $9.95 30 gram jar of 1 tablespoon
Flattery started out as a GWP “Vegan Illuminator”- it’s essentially a Vegan Perfecting Powder with just a hint of pink, and a few fine interference colors- mainly gold, blue and purple.  It perks up a dull complexion and adds just a little bit of shimmer.

I use this all over sometimes, or just under my eyes and on my cheekbones to add a glow. This also made my Holy Grail Beauty Products list. Vegan.

Cover FX Illuminator in Moonlight – $28 for .35 oz
This gives a pretty pearly glow. Vegan.

Pumpkin & Poppy Cream Illuminator in Lady of Light – $$9.89
This is a mix of peach, gold and copper. Vegan

It Cosmetics Hello Light Creme Illuminator – $24 for .23 oz
This gives you a lovely iridescent beige gleam.

There’s one other highlighter that I love that I didn’t mention (because I can’t find where it’s hiding in my stash since I’ve moved things from one room to another; it’s probably hiding with my UD Moonshine) is an LE product. It’s the essence Twilight highlighter. It’s another golden iridescent product but I think the glow it gives is so pretty!
