If you have been peeping those glowy, otherworldly, dewy skinned makeup looks, you’re in luck. The Queen of that look, Pat McGrath has just launched two highlight kits, each featuring a dual ended balm/shimmer stick, a pigment, and a buffing brush. AND- it’s packaged in sequins. Literally, the products are submerged in a package of sequins.
There are two shades of this product; Nude and Golden. I got the shade Nude. At first I was a little disappointed in the amount of product that is in the stick, but since it is dual ended, I don’t think they could have fit more into it. The highlight blends so easily and glides over the skin. The balm is smooth and just tacky enough to hang onto the pigment without being sticky and annoying.
The brush is soft and works well with the product.
The pigment is super silky and seriously gorgeous. I probably would have purchased it for 72 dollars alone.
I had a hard time getting photos of this, mainly because it’s actually really subtle; more than I was thinking when I ordered it online- which is a pleasant surprise. It wouldn’t look weird if you were to wear it as an everyday highlight. When it hits the light you can see it for a split second, but otherwise it just looks like a glow. I’m sure you could build it up to look otherworldly, but it’s nice to have a subtle iridescence that isn’t way over the top.
Here is the pigment on my eyelid, over a black base around my eyeliner, on the cheekbones patted over the balm, and patted over Milani Amore “Matterialistic” Liquid Lipstick.
