I love MSF's, so I own this. But really, I rarely use it and I think of it as a typical champagne shimmery highlight. It's nothing that other highlighters won't do, and it's not very versatile...

Three words: BROKE ME OUT. And badly too. I could not figure out why I had all these red bumps all over my face. This was the culprit. I am not willing to sacrifice my skin for this product. I find...

This product is the first and only MSF I purchased from MAC so far. I found I really love the product. For me, it is definitely an HG item. The color creates a pretty subtle glow on my cheeks...

I just got it without seeing it in person. I asked on the board a couple of times and ppl said it has no colour. I was expecting a colour-less shiny highlighter, perhaps a little like champagne but...

This is a really great product. In the pan it looks pinky/champagne, but when you swatch it, it has a peachy/pink sheen to it. It does not have chunky glitter, it has a very fine shimmer to it. The...

Out of all of the MSF I own I reach for this the most. It gives my NC20-ish skin the best "glow" without being super-shimmery. Reminds me a lot of Guerlain Meteorites. If you get a chance to get...
