Street Wear Crystal Shine Face Brightener
Everytime I visit MG Road (in Pune), I can’t help but pay a visit to Dorabjee’s top floor, which is the Cosmetics’ Floor. So last weekend too, I paid a visit to the store keeping in mind to purchase Revlon’s SkinLights Face Illuminator, but when I approached the Revlon counter, the SA asked me to check out this new face brightener from Street Wear (inexpensive younger cousin of Revlon), which was also a skin brightener. Needless to say, I bought it and brought it home with me! LOL!
So my today’s review is about Street Wear Crystal Shine Face Brightener, which I have tried out a couple of times.
What the product claims:
An oil free face brightener that instantly boosts skin’s radiance with it’s light reflecting crystals.
Well, my personal experience hasn’t really been very far from the product’s claim and it has fared satisfactorily well.
It gives medium coverage and does impart a sheen to the skin. Though it’s Revlon counterpart gives a healthy glow, this gives only a shine. That’s not really a bad thing 😛 but when you are used to a better product then it’s really difficult to go back on quality 😛
One awesome feature of this product is that it neither makes my skin feel dry and neither does it make my face oily! Its just perfect and makes my skin feel really comfortable! This is a huge plus for me as I am a bit particular bout my skin 🙂
StreetWear’s Crystal Shine Face Brightener comes in a mauve-pinkish colored tube with a pump top, which has a transparent cap on it. The overall look is a bit inexpensive types (I wont call it cheap!!) as compared to the sophisticated packaging of it’s more expensive cousin! LOL! The biggest drawback of the packaging is that the tube cannot be unscrewed. Whatever product you need has to be only pumped out!
Next comes the pump. The pump top of the tube is actually very helpful in regulating the amount of product you need. This makes it extremely economical.
Just 22ml of the product costed me Rs.360/-. Dunno if I should call it expensive or reasonable 😛
Now I come to the fragrance part of my review 🙂 This product is highly fragranced and no it is nowhere close to a headache inducing smell… It smells heavenly. It actually smells exactly like the Revlon counterpart.
I honestly think that this product is a exact though cheaper replica of the Revlon SkinLights Skin Brightener…
Now let me just summarize its PROs and CONs
Pross of Street Wear Crystal Shine Face Brightener
- Gives medium coverage
- On application, the face does look fresh and glossy
- Love the fragrance
- The pump cap helps in regulating product usage
- Comes in a number of shades that help match any Indian Skin Tone
- A cheaper Dupe of Revlon SkinLights Skin Illuminator
CONs of StreetWear Crystal Shine Face Brightener
- Doesn’t give a healthy glow just a sheen
- The packaging looks very cheap! There I said it.
- The tube cannot be unscrewed and hence you have no idea of how much product is still left!
Here is a before and after pic for you guys to make a judgement 😛

Fantastic review Suma!! :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: You looking lovely!!! :-* :-* 😀 😀 😀 ..I have the Revlon illuminator which I seldom only use!! 😛 😛
cali…..! how are you??? 🙂
Hi Anks!! 🙂 🙂 I am good!!
Thank u Cali… 🙂 Though I must say that I prefer the Revlon Illuminator more… Why dont u use it more often? :idk: :idk: :idk: :idk:

:yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yelo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: ha hah ha 😀
cool review suma- And ure smiling more in the after wala pic.. hehehe
but seems like a decent product 🙂
beeenniiiiii thanks! 🙂 and yeah i guess I look happier with the illuminator on 😉 LOL!
ur face has brightened up suma . too cute
it has hasn’t it! 🙂 thank u sumsu.. u try it out too 🙂
Suma…you already have very good skin texture……you don’t need a highlighter….. :woot: :woot: :woot:
awwww Jomol thank u 🙂 but sometimes a highlighter is reqd.. especially when I ve had a fight with the BF, then i need to look extra gorgeous and strut my stuff around na 😛 only then he comes to “manao” me 😉
ok- i hve a doubt- will this product or any highlighting bases enlarge my already enlarged pores? like the maybelline mousse blush does? or should I get this?
hmmm honestly beenii i have no idea about it, but yeah with the Maybelline Mousse Blush even I could see my pores but with this or with the Revlon one I haven’t really noticed any such thing…
I actually use my illuminator sparingly on the areas that are “dug in” on my face..like below my eyes, around my nose and lips!! I donno if that is how it should be used, but I find it pretty good in giving an overall glow to my face!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
You have such a glowy skin girl…. you don’t need illuminators! 🙂 but this was a good review…. 🙂
good morning gals….
thank u anks! and good morning to you too 🙂
Loved all the looks in your blog…. you know you shud really do a post on ur skincare regime… 🙂

Sumaaaaaaaaaaaaa DOrabjee top floor is such a fab place naa.. :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
And nice review.. :thanks: :thanks:
ooooohhhh i so agreee Sonam!!!! 😀 Its like Paradise na! And the Revlon, L’Oreal and Maybelline SAs are simply fab! they are sooooo friendly… The FACES SA is good too… But the NYX SA is pretty lost… i think she is new!
Ya right all the SAs are friendly….I did’nt know even NYX has a counter over there…
BTW,Suma are you aware of a place called Ramsukh Market (its in Bhavani Peth) in PUne…over there you get excellent cosmetics and skincare stuff at wholesale prices….
But you know what..all the SAs do some weird make up…the OTT look :toothygrin: Look at MAC SAs ..so classy
WOW !!!!!!!!!!!! seems to b a gud product !!
u luk v pretty with illuminator !! 🙂
😀 thank u rids! :-*
I too have it and I too love it 🙂
hehehhhe.. same pinch again! i tell u this is Pune pUne same pich ka kamaal hai! :-*
