I’m finally getting back into the swing of things post holiday. I will probably do some travel tips posts soon as before we went away we did loads of research and it definitely paid off.
Last weekend L and I caught up with one of our friends for lunch and a little bit of window shopping which of course meant me buying as I have no willpower! I’ve since put myself on a 100 day spending ban as I really don’t need anymore make up and need to start using some of it up.
A few years ago now I picked up my first Mac products included in them was the Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle (review here!). I raved about it loads and it was a firm favourite for well over a year until disaster struck and a drink leaked in a bag it was in and it turned to mouse. I managed to dry it out and it was usable but never the same.
I love highlighters and tend to use the one in my naked flush palette but last weekend decided it was time to finially purchase Lightscapade (which after reading my review of soft and gentle I can see I wanted back then!) The packaging has been updated since I purchased soft and gentle. It’s still classic monochrome but looks more modern.
Lightscapade is cooler than soft and gentle which I’m looking forward to trying as I’m so pale I think it will suit my skin tone even more.It has a range of colours from blues, to pinks to silver in it with a very fine shimmer.
On the skin on me it comes out slightly warm toned champagne. I really love how it looks on my cheeks.
As with soft and gentle it’s really fine shimmer so no glitter ball look. I love how soft these highlighters feel and how they blend on the skin.
One thing to be aware of that L’s eagle eye noticed is that this was also released in a collection on display last week (I can’t remember which one) and the one released in the collection had an embossed finish on the powder but had the normal packaging but a gram less product and when it’s the difference between 9 and 10g and the product is £23 that means you are losing over £2 worth of product for no difference!
Are you a highlighter fan?
