The reason that I had not necessarily liked 'Gleam' is because it was too dark for my papery skin. It would be absolutely beautiful on olive skin and deeper. For us whiteys, 'Sunbeam' is perfect! Applied to the top of the cheekbones, these illuminators give a terrific, natural glow. It looks a bit glittery but nothing too gaudy! For only $6.99, I see nothing wrong with giving these a go. I think they're a great alternative for Benefit's Sun and High Beams.
