Usually, I hate the term ‘holy grail’ when people talk about beauty products, therefore I refuse to call this a ‘holy grail’ product, even if it technically should be.
I remember watching a beauty vlog one time and literally, the whole five minutes, this Youtuber pulled out every product she owned and said “this is definitely a holy grail product!”, which really made me ponder whether she knew any adjectives or not…
Regardless, this has to be the best unplanned purchase I have ever made. The MAC cream colour bases are generally used as highlighters, but I also like to use mine as a stand alone eye shadow, and even an eye shadow base. The consistency is perfect for highlighter, because it is creamy but easily to blend and build for effect. I bought the shade ‘Hush’ which is this gorgeous, frosty blush pink colour.
On the cheeks it gives a beautiful, dewy highlight that makes my contour look really defined, but is subtle enough that it looks natural.
On the eyes it appears a lighter pink than on the cheeks, and I’ve found that it compliments my Naked 3 palette so well because the colour is slightly lighter than ‘dust’ but is more dense and therefore the pigments show more, so it’s the perfect base for a nude and slightly shimmery look.
I really do love this product, and I think that this colour in particular can suit so many different people. The product itself is so versatile and long lasting that it’s definitely worth more than it looks!
