MAC you did good... I am reluctantly becoming a fan!
So I bought this along with my new MAC F&B foundation cause I was not happy with my YSL Touche Eclat pen (I think I got the wrong color cause it looks weird on me, not like my first one) so anyways I needed a highlighter and ended up buying the Radiant Rose. Careful, ladies cause this is super pigmented and a very little of it will get you radiant as can be! The color blends in nice and gives me a nice glow.. I like to use it on my cheekbones and above my eyes and down my nose and it looks beautiful. Lastly its even more perfect for me because it doesn't have glitter to shimmer to it which I don't really care for. I suggest you go try it out, see what color suits you and if you like it I recommend getting it, it's definitely worth it. Perfect for summer <3 hugs xx
I use this under my eyes over Bobbi Brown corrector (in light/medium peach) and it does an *amazing* job at highlighting and greatly diminishes my dark circles! I also use this product down the bridge of my nose and on my cupid's bow to highlight. It's amazing!
a little goes a long way!!!
if you want the kim kardashian highlight with a bit more control, this is the perfect highlighter to use! I love that they offer different shades and since i'm dark, i use the radiant rose with gives a nice warm finish but still a highlighter. No flaking or chalkiness! Also, you don't need a lot or else you will be blending for days!
I love this product! Packaging is perfect on the go or traveling, as well for MUAs.
I recommend using radiant rose(pink) if you are fair- light skin nw/nc10-nw/nc20 I recommend using bright forecast(peach) for nw/nc25-nw/nc45 I recommend using light boost for purple/blue discoloration under eyes or for highlighting (set with powder)
Uses: color corrector, can be used as eyeshdow primer, highlighting. Pros: packaging, lightweight, easy to blend, long lasting, color corrector & primer in one. Cons: mac needs to come out with an apricot color for darker skin tones.
This is my favorite highlighter, it's a part of my everyday makeup routine. I normally put it below my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, on my cupids bow and blend into my foundation. On days I don't want a full face I use this as a concealer, this way not be good idea for those that need a little extra coverage. The packaging makes the application process and storage much easier.
I chose this in Radiant Rose as I'm quite fair skinned. I apply this under my eyes when I need to brighten my face and look more awake. Definitely does the job! I'm not a fan of the packaging as it is a click pen with a brush applicator. I don't like this because you can't see how much product you have left and sometimes it lets out too much product. Also you can't clean the brush properly, so I spot clean it with MAC brush cleaner. Overall a good product!!
Please don't take away
I bought this on a whim and I am glad I did. A little bit goes a long way. The coverage is great and the finish is matte. Looks nice and subtle on the skin but still helps you achieve the look you desire. I have noticed that I reach for it mostly during the summer.
