I love a good highlighter or blusher but can rarely be bothered to apply both to be honest – and it’s rare to find a product that generally manages to straddle both camps without veering too much into one or the other…but that’s where this pretty from New CID steps in…
It has the gorgeous marble texture similar to that of MAC MSF’s (oh how I went nuts for them in my early days of blogging) but without going too far into the shimmer category. Then it has just enough of a pop of pink to deliver some healthy colour to cheeks.
The final result being a slight glow, that’s natural and certainly not disco-ball but somewhere in the happy one-product middle ground between rosy blusher and glowing highlighter.
This is an ideal for daytime product because of the lack of shimmer – helps avoid the whole ‘vampire’ skin thing. The hint of lilac keeps the colour fresh and slightly cooler – so I do think this shade works best on the paler skintones overall but layered on could be lovely on darker skin too.
A definite winner for me in the ‘why use two when you can use one’ product category!
