I think this may be my favorite Radiance, so far. It gives you a subtle, natural-looking, sheer pink glow. It has just a little bit of shimmer, but not as much as some of the other Radiances I've tried.
The thing I love most about it is its versatility. I like to highlight my cheekbones with either Warmth or Warm Radiance, then "apple" my cheeks with Rose, for a healthy looking glow. It's also a great alternative to eyeshadow. I'll sometimes use it alone, but more often I mix it with Secret Radiance for more of a shimmery rose-gold color. I just tried the lip balm trick (dip the tip of your clear lip balm in a small amount, and smooth it on your lips) and was really pleased at how creamy it went on (it looks pale, pearly pink.)
I'm still experimenting with different combinations/applications, but this has looked beautiful every single way I've tried it. I own and love several different Radiances, but this is the only one that I wear every day. I can't imagine my make-up bag without it!

Pros: great value
If you've been wanting to give BE a try, but were put off by the price (like I was) this a perfect introduction to their products, without dropping a huge amount of money.
I have sensory sensitivities and as a result, I've never liked wearing make-up because of the smell and heavy feel. This stuff is awesome for someone like me! It has no scent whatsoever, and my face feels nearly naked. The application is so easy, (even for a novice like me) that my face looked perfectly flawless after my very first try.
I've seen reviewers on other sites complaining about the amount of product they received. Remember, this is a *trial*. The containers *are* rather small, but as I've since learned, with bareMinerals a little goes a looong way. I managed to make my "30 day supply" last over 3 months.
This definitely made a believer out of me. Since getting this kit, I've spent nearly $200 on other BE products, and I don't regret a single penny.

Secret Radiance - REMIX Edition
Secret Radiance (golden candlelit sheen)
Pros: golden shimmer
This was my first Radiance, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I'm hooked! Like others have said, it gives you a gorgeous dewy glow when worn on the face. I think my favorite way to wear it, however, is on my eyelids. I use my extra concealer brush to apply a more concentrated amount, and it gives my eyes a bright, golden sheen without looking too "made up." I also like to mix it with Rose Radiance for a pretty rose-gold shimmer.
