HG highlighter, for now. I really love the color of this skinfinish! So beautiful, like a pinky champagne with a slight peach undertone to it. I have fair to medium cool toned skin, and I love to wear this on my cheek bones and under the eyebrow. It is slightly expensive, but considering the amount you get and the number of uses you get, it's worth it. I haven't really tried too many highlighting products, but I don't feel I need to, because this is everything I could want and more. The staying power is very good, I am a dancer and this lasts 10 hours for me, even through sweating and physical exertion. And I love that it never looks cakey on my skin, and blends easily. I don't, however, use this as an all over powder, as I am not a fan of the overly shimmery look. Especially beautiful if you're going for the "no make up" make up look and just want to accentuate the brow bone and cheeks! Definitely a product I would wear on a first date, too! LOVE. Will repurchase, and already have!
My mom bought this MSF because she really likes shimmer on her face. It looked very pretty so I tried it and boy now I want my own MSF! It gives the face a nice glow for an even more flawless look! I will buy this sometime soon because I didn't know that MSFs look amazing like this.
I love this MSF! This was my first MSF and the lady said I should buff it on my entire face but I decided not to since this is an ultra glittery highlighter. I put this on my cheekbones, the bridge if my nose and a little swirl on the apple of my cheeks. This is a really nice highlighter and when used correctly does not make you look like a disco ball! But the other downside is the plastic covering with the MAC logo sometimes pops out so be careful!
This product is so bad. as many others say its just way too glitery. gliter gliter gliter...just too much.i dont want gliter on my face, i want it to be natural, but this highlighter is not natural at all. I have a CID highlighter, and its a bit similar by how it looks, but the mac one just seems to have chunks of gliter in it., which just doesnt look nice. so no, a big no to this product ever again. its going back to the shop. good bye
I think all MAC cheek products have really good quality. This hilighter is very soft and gentle as the name suggests. a little goes a long way. i've used it for half a year and still have about 90% left. i use it on my nose, cheekbones, and on top of my browbones. by the end of the day i still see some glitter left on my face so that suggests the longevity of the product when applied.
Not much to say other than that this is the PERFECT highlighter.
This is my HG highlighter! I tend to collect MSF's especially the LE shades, but this one I reach for 5 days out of a week. I am fair with NW20 skin, and blue eyes, and I love using this over the top of my blush, and on my forehead. It gives me a bronze glow that I love, and it is not too glittery like other products. I have even used this on my eyelids when I didn't have to time to do my make up and it looks awesome!
This is actually one of my more recent MSF purchases, since I usually concentrate much more on collecting the LE ones. However, just because this is permanent doesn't mean it's not as nice! In fact, it's one of my favorites. I absolutely adore By Candlelight MSF, and - on my skin at least, NC20-25 with light golden undertones - this looks like a slightly cooler version of it. It's not a drab beige, but instead a spectacular pinky-champagne color with just enough sheen to impart a lovely glow. Because - to me - it doesn't seem too cool or too warm, I think this would look lovely on a multitude of skintones. I love to use it on the tops of my cheekbones, or layered on top of my bronzer on my temples. I don't ever use this down my nose, simply because I tend to get oily there, and don't want to fuel the fire with more sheen!
Overall this is a beautiful color, and one that I never have to debate using since it's permanent and I can always get another. Definitely a good buy!
Don't let the light beige color of this highlighter fool you, even though it looks a little drab and over-the-top shimmery in the pan, once you use this to highlight the contours of your face you will fall in love with it! Just like you can't judge a good book by its cover, I have learned over the years that you can't judge the way a certain makeup shade will look on your face until you've actually tried it on. Sometimes the most boring, dull colors really play up my eyes the most and make them pop just as a really garish looking lipstick or gloss will actually good when I apply it. That being said, this highlighter imparts a luminous, radiant glow on my skin that helps me have an "afterglow" kind of look, just very natural and youthful. So try this and play around with it and you will see how good it looks! I think it would enhance any skin tone.
I looooove this!! It makes my skin look so pretty and glowy. I use this over foundation, and you can put it all over your cheeks or your t-zone. This sets my foundation and also can be used as a highlighter, depending on the look you're going for. It's a little pricey, but MAC products last a long time, so IMO it's worth it. My new HG!
