Giorgio Armani Soft Pink (8) Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer HighlighterGiorgio Armani Soft Pink (8) Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer Highlighter ($44.00 for 0.61 oz.) is a light pink with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, pearly sheen that had a subtle, dewy finish. It had sheer coverage that was very spreadable, which made it sheerer in practice, though “sheer” was how the coverage was described so most of that was in line with expectations. This particular shade gave the barest tint of pink to my skin along with adding subtle pearl and sheen.
The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and very fluid–the kind of formula that would run down one’s hand with gravity if you let it!–so it was easy to mix in with various products and never feel like it tinted everything pink. For applying it as a standalone product, I’d recommend using a brush when working over foundation, particularly thicker or more matte foundations, to avoid lifting it up or leaving fingerprints behind (from pressing/patting it on). It lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly.

The formula is supposed to be “ultra blendable” with “sheer coverage” and have a “natural dewy” finish. It can be applied on its own, on top of products, or mixed in with foundation.
The coverage was very sheer, and the more fluid, almost watery, consistency made what was already sheer coverage have a tendency to be even sheerer. I found that the effect of it on its own, as a standalone highlighter, on top of products or bare skin was very subtle to the point where it looked more like faint particles of shimmer but little color and subtle luminosity.
Applied over bare skin, fingertips or brushes worked well, but I preferred a duo-fiber, more feathery brush for applying it over foundation as it seemed more prone to leaving behind fingertips when I tried patting it over foundation. It mixed well with different foundations, and it also was something that mixed well with moisturizers or more fluid primers.
It dries down for the most part, so it wasn’t prone to sliding around while worn nor did it feel tacky on. They wore around eight hours on average before fading.
