MAC is definitely one of my favourite brands. Every product I have tried I have loved and the MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter is definitely right at the top. I have tried many drugstore highlighters and not been impressed so I decided to splurge on this one from MAC.
I picked the shade Light Boost which is yellow toned. I am an NW20 in MAC Foundations so I like to go the opposite to highlight, hence picking a yellow shade. This highlighter is available in four shades including Radiant Rose (Light Shell Pink), Bright Forecast (Mid Tone Peachy Coral) and Peach Lustre (Bronzey Orange). At £19.00 this is definitely not a cheap highlighter. I ordered online and when it arrived I have to say I was really impressed with the size of the product. Drugstore highlighter pens are quite thin whereas this one is very chunky and you get alot of product.
Is it worth the hype?
Yes! Definitely Yes! I am so in love with this highlighter I won’t use anything else. You twist the bottom for the product to come out and apply with the brush applicator. I find one twist pretty much covers everywhere I want it to. I usually apply under my eyes in a upside down triangle, my nose, chin and forehead. It really brightens up my face and under eyes. I apply a white or translucent powder on top using the baking method which really makes a huge difference. Some people do use this as a concealer but it is extremely light coverage, it is designed to brighten and be more of a highlight. I apply this on top of concealer to brighten area’s more.
Overall it is the best liquid highlighter I have ever used. £19.00 may seem alot of money but when a product works as well as this its worth it.
