Rated 5 out of 5 by kdubby Subtle Glow
I received this product almost a month ago and although I read the other reviews about how to use it I had a hard time with it. Whether I wore it with or without make-up. And I recently discovered that mixing it with my moisturizer or foundation was the key and it works so well that way rather than applying it on top afterwards and causing smears or streaks to what you have already done. So when I don't wear foundation I just mix it with my moisturizer and it still gives me an even, subtle glow to my complexion and when I mix it with my foundation the results are phenomenal. My foundation glides on smoothly and my face looks as if I don't need to apply anything else to it. I can just apply and go but I can't go without my blush & mascara. LOL! I got a sample of the product with my order. So, I am still using the sample before I open my full size one because to me this product is rather pricey but the results are wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by teaisme Love my skin!
I had a sample of the instant glow lying around and finally decided to use it. Initially I used it as a primer for my powders but realized it works great alone. I just bought the full product now because of the results. Makes my skin look more radiant, smooth, and even. This is coming from someone who rarely wears make up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Korazy This product does work.
At first I was a little iffy about this product, I wasn't sure if I would want to buy the whole bottle so I sticked with buying some other shu uemura products. I ended getting a sample of it and I love it. It is the perfect "no makeup" makeup. My skin is very sensitive so I was worried but with this product, no deal. It gives my skin a sheer coverage and a shine. Of course, you can put it on top of your makeup but I end up putting it on the bottom or just as my regular makeup. Now I am going to order me a full bottle. :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLK52 An Instant Face Lift but WITHOUT the Pain!
I bought this product about 18 months ago. it's been sitting wrapped in my beauty closet until the other day. I had never tried it before and to tell you the truth, forgot I even had it. So when I spotted it while rearranging my products, I thought it was time to give it a go.
I was blown away. Never have I seen such an instant, drastic transformation of my skin in only the most positive ways.
My intent was to use it as a primer. However, once applied, foundation would have ruined the glorious results, such as tightening of the skin, skin laxity greatly diminished, completely even skin tone, a dewy, luminous, brightening appearance I've never achieved from products 5 times the cost of this one.
I almost didn't recognize myself. I have no affiliation with Shu, am not paid or given any products for the purpose of writing positive reviews. I'm just your ordinary Joe, one who rarely writes reviews because I have little patience to do so. But since this product was so exceptional, pure magic, I had to share it with my SHU family so others can take advantage of the present sale to test it out for themselves. I plan on purchasing at least 3 or 4 more units and pray SHU won't run out before I can place my order.
This product baffles me in that I don't quite understand how it works. When you squeeze the product out from the container, it's clearish/white in color. But somehow, it seems to even the skin tone, behaving like a foundation but without emphasizing every pore or line on your face as foundations often do. And when removing it at the end of the day, what seems to be foundation appears on my make up pad.
This product applies like pure silk, is very soft and creamy and as one who ALWAYS uses way too much of any beauty or skincare product, regardless of what it is, only a pea size amount is required to cover my entire face, in my opinion, creating a flawless look. This product remained on my skin for over 16 hours, which is when I removed it to go to sleep and I'm sure it would have lasted much longer if I stayed out partying for the evening, looking just as fresh and amazing at the end of the day as it did when first applied.
I initially applied foundation to a small area on my face after using the Stage Performer as a primer but felt it diminished the glow and pristine look I had achieved using it alone. As such I removed everything but the Stage Performer, adding only a few dabs of creme blush to highlight my cheekbones.
For the first time in a while, I felt beautiful and received a few catcalls from men on the street, which really stroked my ego.
I give this product the highest accolades and hope that since there is a wonderful sale on the SHU UEMURA SITE presently, it's the perfect opportunity to try Stage Performer Instant Glow, or any other SHU products you've had your eyes on, at these deeply discounted prices.
I can't imagine anyone disagreeing with my product assessment for Stage Performer.
I also have the stage performer signs-off, which I purchased at the same time as the Stage Performer, which also has never been opened. But I can assure you I will be trying that product tomorrow and am sure the results will be just as impressive.
If I could give this product 10 stars, I would. This is a miracle cream made by one of the most renowned cosmetic companies in the world, known for their make up but particularly their skincare.
Why not give SHU UEMURA's Stage Performer Instant Glow a chance? The only thing you have to lose are a few wrinkles! And I doubt that would upset anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lauraro Perfect for 'no makeup' makeup; feels great on skin
I love Stage Performer! I find it most effective when used alone on my skin (though it's also effective under makeup, it has a beautiful finish that gets lost when it's the bottom layer). It gives a perfect glowy look without looking overdone, and feels absolutely incredible on! Maybe too pricy, but really good stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RizzaBeBe Photoshop effect
I was given a sample of this product and it was sitting in my makeup bag for a while. I had this unplanned dinner with my friends and my skin was a bit dull that day. I tried this product on my skin and it was a photoshop effect! This product is amazing I had to buy the full size. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dmcc Works like a charm
I have been faithfully using this product for 3 or 4 years (Can't quite remember how long its been out!). I use it as a primer under foundation, or somedays as a foundation. It starts off as a white color, then little beads burst and tint it ever so slightly. It makes me glowy and reduces the look of red marks. My skin tone is very fair (Have a super hard time finding a color match for my skin), and this does not darken my skin or turn orange. I hope to never be without it.
