Beauty Review | Cheeky Highlights!

Since I’m having the hang of it, from contouring and highlighting I’m getting more confident in it and that includes buying makeup. I notice that when I’m going to shop or go for some errands I always end up in a makeup aisle to look for that eye-catching item that I honestly don’t need. We all have been there right!

I had that moment when I was looking for a highlighter that is budget and good pigmented to use daily instead of my MAC Soft & Gently highlighter. I end up with budget brand goodies; Essence Strobing Highlighter in shade #10 Let It Glow and Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder in shade #010 Light Infusion. Both packages are what you are used from the brands: ordinary and minimal. Essence has a more pinkish colour that comes close to my MAC but the pigment doesn’t come close to MAC. You don’t even see it when I swatched it on my wrist and that is okay because I don’t need to look too glowy for a daily look. The pigment from the Catrice highlighter is a bit better then Essence. This shade is perfect for daily use. The shade is pearly and that gives a more natural look, just like that summer glow we all know and want.

When I don’t want to use my MAC highlighter for a more covered look, like for Moroccan wedding or other parties as in for the upcoming holidays I can use another beauty! The Sleek Makeup Precious Metals in shade #029 is just heaven on your cheeks! The pigment is so great and it stays long! Even with the swatch I made on my wrist it was not easy to wipe it off. This palette has four shades: Platinum for your browbone, Antique Bronze for your cheekbones, Royal Gold for the bridge of your nose and finally Renaissance Gold for cupid’s arrow which is the little small hills on your upper lip. Heck, you can even use it on your body! Think about a slightly touch of the highlighter on your collarbones. Beautiful!

I am very excited about all three of them. Because of the number of highlighters, I have now I can experiment safely with a peace of mind!

My first MAC gem is a fact and I’m in love! You know me Loves; shimmery and shiny make-up is my cup of tea. Many bloggers are very enthusiastic about the brand MAC and I’ve read many reviews that have won me over to buy and try it for myself. I don’t regret it!

I roamed the store like I was a kid in a candy store, so many beautiful things that I couldn’t choose! Lipsticks, foundations, blushes caught truly my eye. Eventually it became a highlighter that is well known.

Soft & Gentle is a luxurious powder with 77-Mineral Complex that adds highlights to the face and body. You can apply it on the parts of your face like your cheeks, cheekbones, and the tip of your nose. Think about the strobing technique. Since you can also apply it on your body, how about a little swoop with your brush on your collarbones?

Although the package looks simple yet chic, it suits MAC. With limited editions and collaborations with artists the package will be adjusted. It makes me only more excited about it!

What I also like is that it gives a natural glow on your face. I applied it on my face with a strobing technique and although you cannot see it well on the pictures because of natural light it gave my face an open look.

What do you think about this highlighter Loves?
