Lisa Eldridge Celestial Fire Elevated Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches
Lisa Eldridge Celestial Fire Elevated Glow Highlighter ($ 38.00 for 0.43 oz.) Is a light to medium copper with warmer, fine gold pearls and a dewy sheen. It had a bare pigmentation as marketed that built up something to medium coverage when layered, although I’d say the finish got more shimmery and intense when layered overall.
The texture was smooth, light, and thin without being too watery or too dense, which helped the liquid highlighter apply to bare skin, blend in without lifting the base products or becoming uneven, and was also great for blending in or out Base layers of foundation / moisturizer for an all-round glowing effect.
The product is dried for three minutes to achieve its “smoothing” effect, which is more of a fused, seamless look on the skin but retains a light, dewy sheen on the skin. That being said, of the four originally published hues, this hue wasn’t quite as smooth compared to others. It carried well for eight hours before it faded a little on me.

The formula is described as a “transparent, slightly tinted and skin-adaptable base” with “small” pearls that give the skin a “glowing and seamless” highlighting effect. In addition, it should have a “subtle tightening and smoothing of the skin”. The intensity of the pearl can be built up depending on the brand.
It had a soft, glowing sheen that wasn’t so dewy that it blended into an oily area, and had fine pearls that glowed without emphasizing the texture of the skin. The effect could be increased by applying more product as described. As on the market, the pigmentation was transparent and, if desired, could be increased to a semi-transparent to medium opacity.
In order to see the subtle smoothing effect, the product is best applied directly to bare skin, left on (three minutes according to the brand’s recommendation) and then basic products added if desired. I found that the formula was definitely more smooth this way, although it never added to the texture of my skin even when applied directly over the foundation.
The consistency was thin, light, and more watery, so the easiest way to apply it was to dab a little on the back of my hand and then use a fingertip or dab brush to pick up the product and dab it on my skin. The product was easy to apply to bare skin as well as base products, as this approach did not tend to lift the foundation. When I applied directly over the foundation with the deer foot applicator, the product appeared to be over applied and too wet.
It lasted a good eight and a half hours before it faded a little on me.
