Ripe Flesh Glisten Drops, $28

Pump just a couple drops of this serum-y highlighter onto your cheekbones or mix it into your foundation (a trick both judges Daniel Martin and Nina Park got into) for a pretty, non-sparkly gleam. We found that anytime our Coveteur officemates tested this liquid (or what Flesh calls a gelled water), we would hear them say “oh, pretty…” with a little sigh. The four different shades also make this new launch an option for all skin tones.

“Just the right hint of illumination to make skin look lit-from-within, but not frosty. The Candleglow shade looked great on my dark skin.” —Kahlana Barfield Brown

“I really like how the super subtle shimmer imparts just a hint of glow, which also gives a little dewy element.” —Jane Larkworthy
