Review for: Perfectly Lit more...
This highlighter honestly took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions! I remember when I had just started loving makeup years ago my friend had this highlighter, and I remember lusting over it but never being able to bring myself to spend so much money on a highlighter. Well a few months ago I finally did. At first I didn't like it at all, and it took me a while to realize that I didn't since I had this highlighter so built up in my head from being so in love with it years ago. I realized that it really was such a dry, hard, dull highlight, but I kept using it in hopes that it would somehow grow on me. But as I kept using it, the formula improved and got more pigmented, less dry and much softer. I think that since this is a baked product that the first layer isn't as good as the other layers so you have to get rid of that one to actually get to the good product. I don't know if that's actually true, but that's totally what I feel like given the experience I had with mine. It can get kind of dry sometimes though, so I do recommend spraying your brush with Fix+, or any other setting/priming spray you have, before applying it, which gives it a lot more of a blinding, yet natural-looking, glow. Beautiful champagne-y finish, which is my favorite type of finish for highlights. Its an okay match for my (NC20, for reference) skin, but I think this would be too dark for any colors lighter than that, but I think that this would look even more beautiful on darker skin tones.

Review for: Soft And Gentle more...
My absolute favorite and goto highlighters. I've had this product for a while but never truly used it. Now that I rediscovered it I never looked back.
The packaging is classic MAC packaging and is good quality.
The formula of this highlight is amazing. I will say it is not the softest or most buttery highlighter I have used, it is the most glowy but natural highlight ever. This highlight does not have a wet look, but does have an incredible high shine highlight effect while looking natural. It is super bendable and lasts all day long. 
By far my favorite highlight and I will repurchase.

Review for: M-A-C Mineralize Skinfinish, Adored more...
Great pigment & radiance! I was surprised with how well this product worked, especially after trying a similar product in the same line, a mineral based sheer pressed tinted allover face powder, which didn't work out well for me/my skin & didn't offer enough pigment or coverage. This product may be categorized within the same line, meaning it's also minerals, but it's so different & I was happy about that. It's especially great because it can be used on cheeks as a blush/highlighter, can be used in place of a bronzer, but I also liked using it as a brow/lid highlighter, with or without eyeshadow over it! Be careful not to drop it, though.. my entire pressed product came unglued from the actual compact & though I was lucky it didn't crumble upon hitting the ground, and remained intact (& didn't cause a huge powdery mess in it's wake), it still sits loosely in its compact to this day & I worry it will break & crumble if I can't figure out a way to securely adhere it back inside it's compact (without damaging or ruining the powder product itself with the wrong adhesive).

Review for: MAC mineralize skinfinish LIGHTSCAPADE ~ Fall Colour Angel Flame more...
I own a huge collection of highlighters and this one stands out as the most subtle and elegant. It is definitely more on a cool side and will be perfect for those of you with very pale skin. This item is not metallic or shimmery whatsoever - the finish is rather luminous and glowy. As I love such kind of luminizers, I use my Lightscapade pretty often, especially on those no makeup days. Truly love and recommend it.

Review for: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, Shooting Star more...
M.A.C Cosmetic Mineralize Skinfinish is one of my favorite products, EVER. Whether it’s the matte mineral foundation (skin finish), a mineral highlighter, mineral blush topper, or shimmering mineralize bronzer, all of the colors and finishes that “Mineralize Skinfinish” offers, are gorgeous, blendable, flattering, buildable, have high color payoff, and are super soft so they cling to makeup brushes extremely well.

I love this highlighter. It gives a really nice and flattering shimmer. It builds up nicely and can go both on subtle for everyday or brighter for an evening out. The texture is also really nice and smooth. I'll use ot for an all iver highlight too. Its subtle enough for the bridge of the nose or corners of the eyes.

This powder is absolutely beautiful on the skin. It looks flawless and airbrushed. It doesn’t accentuate any dry patches on my skin and doesn’t ever look cakey. I would say it’s worth the money but I think I found a dupe that at least works for me. The wet n wild photofocus powder is very similar is texture and finish. I would try that one out first before splurging on this but this product is still a 5/5!

Mac is all I use as I’ve stated except for the Anastasia I have tried they are all highly pigmented I have more than one color and They are just fun to play with. The only gripe I have about highlighters has nothing to do with the product itself it has to do with the so-called beauty gurus lately... I don’t know if they realize it or not but they all are using drag queen style make up and that’s fine. But why would you go through the motion of contouring your nose only to put a big line of highlighter down the middle of it and a dot of highlighter right on the end of it; they look like Rudolph the highlighted nose reindeer. And they often have so much highlighter on it looks like it’s about to drip off their face. I don’t see anything attractive in that - in my opinion less is more at least for highlighters.

Review for: Warm Rose more...
I love using this brand. It gives such a nice glow or bronze whichever one you prefer. It is a little pricey but you don't need a lot so it will last you a while. My skin tends to break out easily from certain makeups and I never break out when I wear this one. It'll last all day without having to be touched up. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Review for: Gold Deposit, Global Glow, Soft And Gentle more...
These have been my signature highlighters for many years now. I use Global Glow for my everyday work highlight. I use Gold Deposit especially in the summer because I tan like 5 shades darker. I love to use Soft and Gentle on special occasions. I would recommend to have Soft and Gentle in your freelance kit it works well on your Bridals party and Prom/Homecoming girls.

How well does this work on lighter skin? I can see some yellow/pink tones but there's also some blue in there and as a pale person it might make me look sick. Has anybody tried this who has a light skin tone? Does it make you look sick?
