Best drug store highlighter! If you can't afford Mary Loumanizer buy this instead. I am an NC20 for reference. I like this better than MAC's Soft & Gentle as it is finely milled unlike S&G's chunky glitter!

Only con is that there is 3.5grams of product vs other actual highlighters having around 10g of product.

In Australia this is around $15. If you're able to grab it on sale, definitely grab it! Otherwise Mary Loumanizer is available in David Jones in Sydney CBD, ground floor, for $35 for 9 grams. I grabbed mine on sale $24 though. ASOS also stocks this.

If I'm in the USA, I will buy a bunch of these! They're around $5-7USD. Amber Rush is also a beautiful shade.

I love this!!! I've found that I cannot do my makeup without it!

However, I don't use it for its specified purpose. Because my eyelids are the driest part of my face and often very flakey, eyeshadows tend to cling onto my dry patches. Because of the texture of this eyeshadow, it accentuated the fine lines and dry patches on my eyelids. For the purpose of an eyeshadow, I actually prefer the Maybelline Barely Branded over this, though I prefer the colour of this!

As a cheekbone highlight, however, this thing is magical. Because it is so shimmery without being overly glittery, it gives me the perfect highlight - not 'subtle' as most drugstore highlighters apart from the Hard Candy tend to look on me. It makes my cheekbones look amazing!! It IS a little on the whitish side, though, so I apply it to my cheekbones with my fingers in small circular motions (almost like buffing) to blend it in. It's perfect!!!

a very wearable colour during daytime. for me it neutralises the yellowness in my eyelids, and this cream-beige colours contains very subtle shimmer that brightens my eyes. likewise, it can be used as a 'highlighter' at the tearducts/ lower lash line (a bit of 'wet' look). tested this product under hot & humid weather (30 deg C, >70% humidity) with UD primer beneath, the shadow stood well for 8 hours, after that it creased; but to be frank I can't complain because my eyelids usually get very oily after wearing makeup for long hours.
for ref, i'm MAC NW 30, combi skin type

I have already raved about my love for the Infallible shadow formula, finish and packaging in my reviews for other shades, so for this review I'll simply say the Infallibles are just wonderful!
I believe, although I am not certain, that Hourglass Beige is called Iced Latte in North America. It is a light shimmery beige/cream shade, and at first swatch I was afraid it would be too light and cool toned on my skin as most shadows in this colour range tend to be. When I tried it on my eyes, thankfully, I was wrong. It makes a lovely and luminous inner corner highlight, without looking chalky or white on me. While it is still a bit too light for under brows, it works so well in the inner corner that I am perfectly happy restricting it to this purpose. Again, the finish is simply beautiful and the staying power is wonderful!
