Review: MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel.

MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel – £17.50*

Lustre Drops are a liquid bronzer with a pearlescent lustre, they provide a natural looking luminous finish for those areas you like to have a little bit of highlight.
I’ve had these on my wishlist for some time now, they are limited edition (although this may be changing?) and I was lucky enough to get them to take away from the MAC event!

These can be used on the cheeks, brow bone, cupids bow etc. to give a lovely, natural highlight. You really only need a few drops, and they can be applied using a brush or your fingers – I find using my fingers to dot the drops into my cheekbones works best.
You can also add the Lustre Drops to moisturiser or foundation for an all over soft glow. This is something I’ve been doing recently.

Pink Rebel is the most amazing pearlescent rose gold colour, I absolutely adore the shade! I think Pink Rebel is more of a highlighter than a bronzer, and they’re quite different than the powder highlighters I usually use on my skin. I think when they’re mixed in with foundation they look so beautiful and really give a healthy, glowing finish to the skin.

What do you think of Lustre Drops?

    It looks so pretty – I’m always a bit wary of highlighters because they can look awful if overdone. This might be one to try x
