this was something my mama picked up for me knowing it was on my wishlist. when i first got it i didn't really make much use of it. i always preferred a matte look but now summer is finally upon us i find myself searching for the soft dewy glow for the first time and rediscovered this product.
this can be used one of two ways: either mixed in with your foundation or as an everyday highlighter on top of your skin or make-up. mixed in with a foundation it makes them feel much lighter and makes my heavy duty products look far less cakey. worn over make-up the product can be used sparingly to create a subtle glow or built up for something a bit stronger and more noticeable. the shade is very flattering pearly white with pink undertones which complements the natural flush of my skin. i would liken it to benefit's high beam but with less pink tones, instead it is far more white.
what i really love about this product is that it is shimmery as opposed to glittery making it perfect to wear both day and night. mac list it as a moisturiser on its website and i can see why. it really does make the skin feel amazing and worn as a base under make-up it doesn't feel dissimilar to a moisturiser. i am definitely glad i rediscovered this product. it is the perfect summertime accompaniment to my make-up routine and although the price is a little hard to justify, you use so little with each time that you get more than your moneys worth!
what do you use to get a dewy glow?
