I know that you don't care for Revlon's Skinlights, but the line does have a Liquid Illuminator (Instant Skin Brightener) that is a definitely more subtle than the loose powder. They also have a Diffusing Tint Foundation that is very subtle, and smooths our features, along with adding a "glow." Both of these also have SPF 15 or 30 in in them. I've also found that the loose powder is good when you mix a little bit with your moisturizer - it creates its own illuminating lotion. A lot of people give rave reviews elsewhere about doing that! (Whatever you do, don't throw the powder away - you can always swap it!)
The bolded ones are the lotions/liquids. The items at the beginning are scrubs and cleansers in that one brand.

I've got a coupon for the Nivea Visage one, and plan on trying it asap. I can't wait to try the others, as well!
Hope that helps some!
Edited to add:
Powder-wise, there's also MAC's Pigment in Fairylite, which adds a nice glow, as well as one that I have and want to find a new home for, Elizabeth Arden Luminous Compact. It's a subtle glow, not really shimmery. Very pretty - I just don't use it. I know there are more...can't think right now.

I've found these products in my never-ending search for good illuminators. I'll let you know if I find anything else in my travels!
I look forward to hearing the results of your powder/lotion mixture, whether good or bad.
