Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelee

The Muse has reviewed on this product sometime back in July here and it has really captured my attention because she said this powder gelee has self healing properties...

I just happen to be at Bloomingdale's to pick up my La Mer so I checked this out at the EL counter.

Display of the Fall collection:

The display has been tested out pretty heavily, and I don't think the self healing properties really apply after such heavy usage:

With just one swipe, with a whiter lighting, looking very shimmery and silvery:

With a yellower lighting, still very shimmery but showing more bronzy:

blended at the back of my hand with whiter lighting:

With a redder lighting:

Pigmentation on a tissue napkin:

I think to be a highlighter, it's way too shimmery for me, so the only use I can think of is being an eyeshadow... but this powder gelee is a tad too big to be an eyeshadow for me and it will take me 9 lives to finish it!

I have shimmery eyeshadows in my current collection and a pretty close dupe I have is by the name of B&C Laboratories Inc. Makemania-Sparkle Glitter (Brown, the left one):

So, without the interesting self healing properties, I am not too interested in getting it, what do you'll think?

true, to me it is just a 'normal' highlighter, I would not getting it if I have the similar stuff:)
