MAKE UP FOR EVER: Uplight Face Luminizer Gel

Looking for a way to add radiance and luminosity to your face and break out of the all-over-the-place weather doldrums? Make Up For Ever recently launched a collection of luminizing gels called Uplight. These gorgeous colors are available in  eight shades, which range from the innocent-looking #11, a dewy pink beige, to the #33, a feisty sparkling copper.

All shades can be played up or down, to suit your look. Add it to your cheek bones for a fresh face, in the arch of your brow to make your peepers pop, or add a touch of Uplight to your tinted moisturizer to perk up your entire face. The possibilities are endless.


I was able to check out #23, a golden pearl color. Lightly layered over blush, it gives a slight radiance to your face. Applied with a heavier touch, it can give you that JLo glow. I also used it on its own to give me a subtly defined cheek.

These are available at Sephora and retail for $29 each. The one tiny drawback? Uplights come in the same kind of dispenser as the (amazing) HD Microfinish blushes do. It takes a lot of practice to not dispense more than you need for one application. However, that didn't stop me from buying several cheek colors and probably wouldn't stop my from picking up a few other Uplight colors (like #s 11,21 and 32). What colors do you have your eye on?

  1. I recently purchased and reviewed the MUFE Uplight Gels and I loved them! I picked up #23, #32, #11 and #12. On my skin tone though #23 did not look as bronze. :(

  2. They are pretty, aren't they? Things on my skin show so much - it's the good/bad part about being so pale-erriffic.

  3. I just tried #12 today at sephora and really liked it!
