stila all over shimmer liquid luminizer: Swatches + Review!

I know, I know, I'm recycling photos again (you can see my first offense here).
But darn it, they're my photos (from my November Birchbox blog post) and they're perfectly good ones so I hope you all don't mind; I wasn't completely lazy anyways and included some new ones at the end for your viewing pleasure :)

So take the usual jump below to see my full review on this (SPOILER ALERT) gorgeous product!!

I have a love-hate relationship with highlighters; when they're done right they're done RIGHT but when they're done wrong they're just plain WRONG. 
I'm sure you've all seen highlighting disasters so I won't go into it but seeing someone who went highlight crazy is almost (but not quite) as traumatizing as seeing someone who went contour crazy.

Upon first swatch of the stila all over shimmer liquid luminizer though, I knew this product was different. 
It was like biting into a Lindor truffle for the first time... you just don't look back and happily gaze into your future of obesity and twenty too many cats.

Do you see what I mean!??!? Look at how gorgeous of a glow this gives your skin!!
The color I received of this in my Birchbox was "pink shimmer" which I think would work on any skin tone; it's a pinky gold opalescent flecked shimmer that looks gorgeous on top of any blush to give you happy cheeks even when you're not smiling.

Isn't that one of the most subtly lovely highlighters you've ever seen??
If you think so, I'd recommend picking one up ASAP as Sephora has this specific color (it comes in four different shades!) labeled as limited edition :(

Have you tried (any of) the stila all over shimmer liquid luminizer(s)?
Loved it? Hated it?
What's your favorite highlighter?
Do share!!
