MAC Lustre Drops

I can’t be the only person around that thinks the return of MAC Lustre Drops is awesome. Anyone? Bueller? As a chick who is dead scared of highlighters I find it surprisingly delightful that I actually LIKE Lustre Drops…but what’s not to like? They are so freaking easy to use and such a compliment to Summer skin!

Do try!

MAC Lustre Drops return for Summer 2013 in two shades selections.

This liquid touch of sun is a liquid shimmering, luminous highlighter. It comes in a tiny puffy paint-like bottle with a needle nose dropper. Holler if you remember puffy paint!

MAC Lustre Drops Pink Rebel

You can use Lustre Drops in any number of ways including directly from the bottle tapped gently on skin to highlight your cheek bones, bridge of your nose, or highbrow area. Or mix them with your foundation to create a luminous finish! Or you can give use them as a base for powder eyeshadow or as a glossy color wash on eyes. Don’t limit yourself, multitask this shiz to death I says.

I personally like mixing three drops with my moisturizer and applying a little cheek stain on my cheeks followed by Benefit Lemon Aid on lids and concealer under my eyes for a fresh, flawless, no makeup look!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Holler! Puffy paint hasn’t gone away has it? That’d be a full-blown crisis.

    Oh, and I’m stoked to pick these up, too!

    I do, I do! I decorated my sneakers with puffy paint in middle school! 😀

      vastly different products, formula is runnier not as thick, color is more pigmented, packaging, colors offered are different, etc…i find lustre drops are more multitasking than high beam.

    I’ve recently re-fallen in love with Benefit High Beam. I’ve been on such a highlighter kick lately, and this looks gorgeous!

      i suck at highlighters but high beam has always been so easy to apply ;-D

        It is pretty goof proof, and the container is so so cute too! bonuses all around.
