What's the Wonder with this Glow?

left: a drop.  right: blended.
Ever since reading about this magical (using this world loosely due to the nature of Charlotte's Makeup Book) multi-purpose highlight potion, I've wanted to get my hands on some.  I remembered I asked for it, together with too many other things, from Sam, and later changed my mind to the Rimmel instead (link to blog post).  Now that I've discovered this little tube from the Advent Calendar it's a really good opportunity to finally try this liquid out.

The instructions say the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow can be used in three ways.  Prime: Under foundation to add luminosity.  Finish: Over foundation for a radiant instant beauty-flash.  Alone: Over Magic Cream, not followed by anything.  Yuan, a Taiwanese blogger now in Ireland, wrote about a forth way, Mix: with any (even budget brand) foundation and upgrade the result.

Yuan's blog post on CT WG (Chinese) :

I have only tried the Finish method, i.e. to apply over foundation.  Am I impressed?

Bullet Points:

- Made in Switzerland (same as the Goddess Skin Clay Mask and Magic Cream)
- 15 ml
- Has a distinct rosewater-ish scent (sorry can't pick up the other notes)
- Quite runny as a liquid
- On the hand, gives a rose-gold peachy skin-like sheen (micro-fine shimmer).
- On the face, applied after foundation, adds radiance but not much of a glow.  Very subtle.  So subtle I wonder if it is worth the extra step, for me anyway.  It doesn't feel silicone-full or uncomfortable on the skin.  I believe it has some pore-smoothing properties, too.
- First impression?  I guess I'll try to use it in the other ways, and try to use this up.

On my face/ FOTD:

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer #Finland, MAC Mineralize Concealer #NC15, Hera Precious Powder #2 (one of the best loose powder out there but discontinued), Cyber Colors Powder Eyebrow Pencil #04LightBrown (too soft, don't like), Nars Brow Gel #Kinshasa, Visee Feather Impact Mascara Waterproof #BK001 (not hold curl good enough, fibres always poke my eyes)

Don't know why I'm photographing this as it can be found online. :P
