In my DECEMBER EDITION GLAMEGO SUBSCRIPTION BOX came this MANNA KADAR GLO ILLUMINATOR. I was over the moon ever since I knew that my subscription box came with an international branded product and that too an illuminator, I couldn’t be more happy. I immediately put it to test, and in this post I’ll be reviewing this beauty. 

Incandescent highlighter that can be used on the face and body to create a beautiful “Glo”! Formerly known as Sheer Glo, the newly re-formulated, Glo Illuminator is an incandescent liquid that lights up your skin giving it an all over radiance. Mix with foundation or wear alone to provide a luminous glow for all skin types. This is an especially amazing product for mature or dry skin. Glo Illuminator provides a youthful glow and dewy finish. Use on face and/or body and get glowing.

  • Mix with foundation, BB cream, or body lotion to create a dewy glow
  • Use as highlighter on cheeks
  • Gives a radiant and youthful look
  • Use on face, décolleté, or body for an all over radiant look
  • Paraben free
  • Cruelty free


PRICE : $29 (which is around INR 2100 in India) for a 20ml product.

I got this Glo Illuminator in my Glamego December Edition. I should literally thank Glamego team for adding it in their box, as I would personally never invest in 2000 bucks on a cream illuminator😜.


  • For those who desire a more dewy look apply this product with your Flawless Foundation or BB Cream.
  • To achieve a natural healthy shimmer, apply to entire body.
  • Apply to collar bones to have them appear more pronounced.


The packaging is very simple, it comes in a sleek and travel friendly tube format. It is very easy to carry it around and easily fits into handbags. The tube is kind of a see-through one, so the product inside is actually seen.

The Glo Illuminator is a rose gold sheer coverage illuminator. It is a cream based illuminator with pink undertones, which is claimed to be either mixed with foundations or applied on top of foundation or directly applied to the bare skin for a natural dewy look. But this illuminator didn’t do anything for me, sadly, when I tried to mix with foundation, mix with BB cream, or apply on top of my foundation. Mixing with foundation or topping on it, was a total fail for me. Nothing showed up nor did I find any difference with or without the illuminator.

Here are the swatches.

I wanted it to work so bad on my makeup but I gave up after several tests and trials, and finally I used on my bare skin on the high points of my face. Okay, it kind of showed up. It gave that pinkey dewyness, phew finally! And it was a beautiful from-within glow. I totally love it. Thankfully, it doesn’t enhance any of the pores and it is totally non-sticky. The dewy effect did last for 5 hours all alone on my bare face.

Overall, I find myself using this Glo Illuminator more on my bare skin for that dewy look on my no-makeup face. As I mostly bare no-makeup face, I love to carry it that way. I really feel this Glo Illuminator gives that pinkey flush on pale skin and will show up better on them.
