I love this MSF. Its so easy to use & you can't mess up with it. With the other MSFs that I own, they are a little too dark and you can tell where it is placed on the face, but with lightscapade, i love how it looks above my blush, right on top of the apples of my cheeks. Would definitely buy again, but not for over $28 :) try it!
My absolute favorite MSF, hands down! It turns my skin into a freshwater pearl... in the best sort of way!!! I love how this MSF works- it looks like a total mishmash of colors- pinks, greens, blues, yellows... all marbelized. And yet, you put it on and it's the PERFECT hightlighter. I rarely give rave reviews but I love this one, I really do! I've been trolling around online in hopes of buying more-- I already have 2!
Me - NC30, some redness, sensitive, congested pores, oily skin. My favourite skinfinish. Beautiful colour in the package and beautiful finish on the skin. I was very apprehensive to buy this as it was described to have lots of pink veining.. I ended up buying ones like shimpagne and global glow which were too dark/beige for my skin anyhow. This is not as sparkly or loose as global glow, I ended up using several applications to pick up the same quantity of product which one gentle tap on global glow did! The finish was a nice sheer frosty colour which was similar to Laura Mercia's secret brightening powder. Very sheer micro shimmer, no chunks of glitter or glaringly obvious shades of pink. MSFs use weird ingredients for their powder base, something my skin was not used to so began to have a slight itch straight away - but settled in within a few mins. I use this on the entire face and don't layer it as eye shadow or a highlighter. I think this will last me for a long time, but would not keep backups as there are always many more products out there to try.
it looks really pretty in the pan, but when it's on my skin i don't really see a difference. i know it's meant just a highlighter, but it doesn't even do an amazing job of that...nevertheless, i love it simply because it looks amazing in the package!
I've had a love/hate relationship with this highlighter product for a while. I was suckered in by how it looks in the packaging- it reminds me of a modern version of Guerlain meteorites. In the beginning I found it way too subtle to make a difference at all but then I realized it actually makes THE perfect daytime highlighting product. It really adds oomph without being over the top. Extra points for being so pretty and fun to use when applying makeup; I like the way it looks sitting on top of my vanity.
My favourite product for a lit from within glow! I passed on this when it first came out as it just looked weird to me, but caved as the reviews started to come in. I brush it all over my face when doing full-on makeup, or on cheekbones for a subtle glow. It makes me look healthy and airbrushed. If it wasn't LE I would definitely buy it again.
Lightscapade is a must have MSF for pale porcelain skin. The color is a marbleized mixture of shimmery pink, blue and yellow swirled together and baked in a pan. It has a silvery base to it and is quite pastel colored. I imagine that this might look ashy on dark/warm skin or not show up at all, but it's perfect for pale pinkish cool-toned skin like mine. It makes my skin glow without looking like I have highlighter on. I use it on the tops of my cheekbones, temples, brow bones, inner eye corners and anywhere else that I'd like to highlight.
This has to be my favorite MSF ever. Nothing else even comes close. MAC must have broken the mold after they made this one because the newer (and most of the older ones I tried) are nothing like it in terms of texture and shimmer. No glitter particles here, just a lovely glowy candlelit shimmer that makes my skin look like porcelain. I use it as a highlighter, to lighten up blushes I went a bit heavy-handed with, as an all-over glow and on my eyes. This is one I really should have gotten a backup of, but knowing MAC they'll probably re-realease it later, or something very similar. Until then I'll faithfully use the one I have with the clear conscience that it's worth every penny, unlike some of the others.
I think Lightscapade and Stereo Rose has got to be my two most favorite MSFs that Mac has ever produced (and believe me I had most of them, cept Pleasureflush.) Lightscapade is awesome for giving an all overglow and the soft swirls of colors are great for evening the skintone. For me that is. Just a little goes a long way. I'll be sad when I run out of it but based on the fact that my Stereo Rose still has its dome, I shouldn't worry tooo much.
Why on earth did I not like this? Couldn't get it to show up for ANYTHING, and even though I'm the palest of the pale...this just made me that much more pasty. You know, what would show up...! My go-to highlighter is the underrated Shimpagne!
