A highlighter is a very important product that needs to be included in our makeup kitty. It enhances our features by highlighting the high points of our face. There are dozens of highlighters in the market, so which one is a must buy and which is not? Like every other brand Colorbar too had launched their version of highlighters, one being the Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator highlighter pen. It is definitely a pocket friendly highlighter but is this worth the money you invest…

Packaging : It comes in Colorbar’s signature silver packaging and it is simple and sleek. Inside the packaging is the product which is obviously in a pen form. It has a top lid and at the bottom is the press button. The body is metallic silver completely. Open the lid and you will see that the pen has a bristle at the tip. The product comes out after pressing the press button at the bottom.
My experience with Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen:
When I bought this product, I had a lot of expectations as I had done a lot of research on the product or so I thought!! I shall tell you my honest opinion about this product and then you can decide if you. To begin with, I love the packaging and the whole concept of pen illuminator.
It is very travel friendly, easy to use and hygienic. BUT the issue with this product is, initially I struggled a lot, like seriously a lot to get the product out!! It just would not come. I must have pressed the button at least ten to twelve times and then did it come out. The story continued for 3 to four times after that too. Now however it comes out easily. So the point is initially, be ready for the struggle and annoyance.

The Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator is a cream highlighter and the shade is champagne gold and I love it! The particles in the highlighter is very fine hence gives a nice finish to the skin, a natural glow to be very precise. The brush applicator makes it easier to apply however you will need to blend it with your finger. Now here there is a glitch. The product should be blended with gentle touch; a little extra blending will make the product vanish. The shade is very pretty and compliments almost all skin tones barring maybe very dusky skin tones.
The price is very reasonable too. One important thing I noticed about this product is, after every application you must clean the brush of the pen with tissue and put the lid as otherwise the brush becomes hard. That is because there will be product build-up which results in stickiness in the brush. I liked how it fared on my skin as it did not make it oily or break out.
Note: For solving the press button glitch you can try keeping the pen in the upside down position always, so that sufficient product flows to the tube and it easily comes out when you need it.
What I like
- The shade is too awesome
- No glitter
- Travel friendly
- Great texture
- Hygienic to use
- Easy to use
- Good for all skin types
What I Didn’t like
- The press button in the pen is irritating to use
- Not many options in terms of shade
- The applicator brush is not really soft
- Cannot be blended too much
Final verdict: Colorbar Radiant Glow Face Illuminator Pen is a decent travel friendly illuminator to get a natural glow. Perfect budget friendly Illuminator that you will not regret buying.
