Today I am going to be talking about Mac's Cream Colour Base in Pearl. This is a new purchase for me and I have been trying it out for around 2 weeks now. I absolutely adore highlighters or anything that will give me a glow without making me look oily. With someone that has normal/dry skin sometimes my skin can just look a little dull in general so products like this appeal to me!
My preference is to use this product after I have applied my foundation and I will just take my middle finger and blend it in to the areas that I would usually apply highlighter (tops of cheekbones, top of my lip and slightly on my chin and down my nose). I will then use a highlighting power over the top to make the highlight look more intense. I will also use it if I am in a rush and I don't have time to apply liquid foundation and I can only throw on some powder and will put some on top of that. Although you only want to apply a little bit if you are going to apply this over powder because if you use too much it can be a bit of a pain to blend, a little goes a long way with this technique!! Pearl is definitely one of those products that helps to make your skin look really healthy without looking too crazy!
Mac describes this as being a pale gold with icy shimmer with a frost finish. I have to agree with this although my picture is doing a good job at making it look white on my hand!
