The packaging is really attractive and classy. It comes in a round, see through plastic jar with a golden screw top lid. It contains a sponge to keep the fragile pearls/beads safe from messing or rolling around and get crushed.
The Body Shop Brush on Radiance contains many beads of rosey pink, golden yellow and baby pink color. The beads are finely milled and work great as highlighter. The shimmers are totally unnoticeable and give a radiant, natural and pearl like sheen without drying out skin.I usually use it over forehead, cheekbones and bridge of nose or over top of my matte blush. It gives a nice subtle glow to my cheeks (I get so many compliments whenever I use this). You need to swirl the blush or powder brush over the beads, tap it over the jar to remove excess, swipe it across your cheeks and blend it well. It is really easy to pick up color as the beads are a bit powdery.You need to apply it sparingly else it would make you look like a disco ball. It can be used on the whole face/body for night parties as well but I prefer using it on cheekbones only.
The beads are so fragile and powdery that it can be crushed for the easy application and sometimes in hurry I simply pick color from the underside of the sponge. It would suit both cool and warm skintones as it doesn’t show any color on face but you can definitely build up the color and shimmer by blending it well. It gives a lovely shade of pink when built up that looks rather natural. It can be worn at day time as well without looking glittery.The staying power is awesome. It stays put on my cheeks for a good 5-6 hours. Even removing it is not hassle and can be easily removed by any cleansing milk or makeup remover.
It is really a versatile product as it can be used alone or in combination with any other product like foundation, powder or blush.
I have not blended the highlighter.

I love this product. It is very versatile as it can be used alone or with combination of other cosmetics such as foundation, powder or blush. I love the soft shimmery glow it gives to my skin. It suits both warm and cool skintones. The staying power is awesome too. Overall I am really impressed with these pearls and would recommend it to everyone.
