My Views On the Product : This Glam -up is with a really new concept of cream that turns into powder upon application.It is more or less works like an highlighter + Foundation which gives light to medium coverage and adds shine to the face.Those who have minor blemishes on the skin and needs a light coverage with an instant glow on the face can try this one.I did not find  much difference when used it alone ,the white cast it forms after drying is a bit uncomfortable and  so I tried using it in combination with tinted moisturizer ,Maybelline BB cream and Lakme CC cream and I found it very effective in this way and more comfortable.Whenever there is a sudden party or function and do not have much time for doing make up,then go for this glam-up in combination with a tinted moisturizer or BB or CC cream, it gives a nice glowy  finish with subtle glow to the skin similar to the finish which we get when using a foundation and a highlighter.It suits oily -combination well than dry skin as it is turns dry on application.The tint of this glam-up suits wheatish -fair skin tones and may not suit dusky skin tones.Those who do not  prefer heavier makeup can surely go for it.
