What Sephora has to say about Illamasqua Gleam Cream:


What it is:
A lightweight compact iridescent formulation that lifts and highlights wherever it is applied.

What it does:
Containing iridescent pearlescent pigments, this lightweight cream formula is suitable for face and body, lifting and highlighting wherever it is applied. Use on its own or layer under foundation for an immediate skin-brightening effect that will illuminate the night.

Aurora is described as Champagne. It's hard to see it against my skin in the swatch above, but it's a gorgeous highlighter for cheeks, brows and pretty much anywhere else you want to put it.

Aurora was released with the Fall 2012 Generation Q Collection and retails for $26.00. Purchase at and
