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.

I have the shade "Lightscapade" (might only be available through MAC website). I have had my eye on this highlighter for years because it's supposed to be the perfect highlighter for pale skin -- and it is! It has the loveliest pearlescent finish and is long-lasting. It doesn't accentuate texture or have big chunks of glitter. It doesn't look like a stripe of random color on my cheekbones, it just looks like a pearly, glossy version of my skin. I am so in love with this and I don't think I'll ever buy another highlighter. New holy grail!

I recently purchased this highlighter and like it, but don’t love it. I find it to have a lot of chunks of glitter as opposed to a natural sheen. The color itself is beautiful and it does look nice on he skin. But, I prefer a lot of my less expensive highlighters over this one. Good product, but there are definitely better highlights for the price. I reach for my $4 Essence highlighter over this one most of the time

I love the packaging of MAC products – Black with silver writing. I think its simple yet sophisticated. I also love the window compact so you are able to see the gorgeous highlighter.

I have to talk about how delicious the quality is. This is such a creamy powder - it really reminds me of the NARS eyeshadows in terms of texture. Since it's so creamy, S&G is super blendable and creates the prettiest sheen. One of my favs!

My new favorite natural highlight! I love wearing this on cheekbones for days when I want a more natural, lit from within dewy look because let's face it, not every day calls for a blinding in your face highlight! I also love using this as a finishing powder all over my face for a soft luminosity to my skin! Such a beautiful champagne-apricot color and I love the marbled look of it!

This is a great highlighter. It’s not too overpowering and it’s easy to blend out if you accidentally put too much. It last all day. It’s great. My one complaint is that I feel like it sits on top of my dry skin. It looks like highlighter and not like a lit from within look. I prefer a more natural highlighter. If you want something that is going to highlight your skin and don’t mind if it sits on top of your skin, this is a great option. I won’t be repurchasing it but I will be using up what I have.

Review for: Gold Deposit more...
This MAC highlighter is one of the first highlighters that I’ve ever owned. The shade Gold Deposit is a beautiful golden color and looks amazing on my skin tone! This is a very buildable highlighter and can go from being subtle, to very bold. I like to apply this on not only my cheekbones, but my nose, brow bone, inner corner, chin, and ears as well.

Review for: Highlight the Truth more...
Lately, I've been obsessed with highlighter and finding the perfect one that will add a soft, lovely glow to my very fair skin. I picked this up at a MAC counter in Macy's and was a bit taken aback at the price, but figured I was paying for quality. 

I tried using a fan brush to apply this above my cheekbones but found that I wasn't getting very good color payoff. So I tried using the pad of my ring finger instead and much prefer that.

This highlighter is a champagne color and is able to produce a glow that can be appropriate for everyday or a formal event, depending on how much you apply. I love that it doesn't have a lot of glitter. I don't like highlighters that make it look like you rubbed straight glitter on your face. 

The only issue that I have with this highlighter is the price, but I'm not too bothered by that because I only use a little at a time, and it makes me look so wonderful that the price isn't a big deal.

I've been using this for over five years. This is my go to highlighter. It is so soft and buttery and blends out like a dream providing a beautiful slightly shimmery highlight. It's slightly gold and Rosy it is stunning on warmer skin tones but still looks great on lighter skin tones. I don't know what I would without this.

I'm obsessed with this highlighter , it's been my favorite since the cleverly first time I purchased it. It's my holy grail. I do have other highlighters but this is the one I always seem to reach for , I've hit pan on these quite a few times already and I always have to repurchase once I'm done..otherwise I'd feel naked with out it. It leaves the perfect healthy glow (soft and gentle) with out it being over the top , the color really compliments my skin tone and it looks like it just melts right in. This highlighter is a must.
