sowohl die cremeblend als auch die cream colour base's lassen sich super auf die foundation einblenden oder auf die ungeschminkte haut für einen frischen look

Beautiful

The color Luna is a perfect for someone who wants a more neutral highlight--it doesn't lean yellow, pink, or beige. I've been loving it both as a cheekbone and inner corner highlight. It's very pigmented, and gives the most beautiful, luminous glow to the face without looking greasy, shiny, or oily at all. It's also extremely easy to apply--with either a brush or your fingers. Even though it is a cream product, it's SUPER easy to blend and lasts all day without fading or smearing. This is definitely my new favorite highlighter :)

Perfect Multitasker

The cream color base is now possibly my favorite item of Mac. The formula is creamy enough to blend out, but pigmented enough that blending doesn't make the color disappear. The color is buildable and very versatile. I can use this for both my blush and lips, and it looks like two different shades! Really the perfect product, I couldn't be more satisfied.

Cream Colour Base Pearl

As I have oily skin and love matte foundations, I was looking for a product to add dimension to my face without being dewy/greasy. I have a few other big brand highlighters, which are wonderful, but contain too much shimmer for daytime wear. I purchased Pearl based on lovely online photos and Youtube videos. When I received the product, I was surprised by how small the product actually is, and was beginning to regret my purchase -- especially after I swatched it and noticed obvious shimmer. However, when I tapped some (okay, maybe a lot) on the top of my cheeks and down my nose bridge, and blended it out with a damp Beauty Blender sponge, it imparted such a beautiful natural glow and sheen without shimmer, that I was completely sold.The best part is that it does not make my skin look dewy or oily -- it adds a bit of dimension to the face to keep matte foundations from looking too flat. I have medium-tan skin that tans very easily (NC40-NC43), and the color looks extremely natural on my skin tone, despite seeming like an icy white/golden color in the pan. I have seen it used on the eyelids and body, but for now I simply relegate it to my cheeks and nose; though I may try other methods during the summer.My advice, though, is that if you are seeking a noticeable, yet subtle glow, build up coverage and blend it out vigorously with a blending sponge. « less

Love this creme base

Just received this. Wanted Shell, but read about Hush. Very glad I got this. It is a bit hard at first but your fingers warm it up. It's very light and sheer on the skin, and as I had read, blending is everything. It's real dewy alone, and it really helps hold blush and it seems like you don't need as much blush, and you still retain the glow with blush on top. I will be using this alone and with blush. Ii's a very light peachy/gold and not overdone. You don't need a whole lot. It really does a great job as a highlighter and glow. I am over 55 and wanted something soft, which this is. I do need at least a sheer foundation on first, but it works great for a light not over done look. You can also build it to make more pronounced. I love it and will still order Shell when it's back in stock. Just the perfect glow! This will also be great in the winter when dry skin comes back for a perfect glow. It is NOT sticky either, which I have a few creme blushes that your hair sticks to. This is also a perfect multi purpose. Great on lips! This is a 5 star! Less
