Glow On: MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Light Boost

MAC released a series of ‘highlighting pens’ (cream… no shimmer) designed to add light to any part of the face that you wish to bring forward. The pen comes in three shades: Yellow (Light Boost), Pink (Radiant Rose), and Peach (Bright Forecast). Naturally, I ended up with yellow.

There have been some claims that this highlighter pen is large… larger than its other counterparts. It’s not. It’s on par with the Chanel concealer pen… pretty standard stuff. By Terry Touche Veloutee still holds the distinct honor of being the largest pen highlighter.

This formula reminds me a bit of Touche Veloutee, because it’s creamy and really easy to blend. It’s slightly more yellow, which helps a lot with skin tones that have a yellow undertone. The coverage is medium, although I suspect that it can be built to full.

I wore it in an FOTD:

It’s under the eyes, between the brows, and on the chin. It behaves like a traditional cream highlighter, which is not too shabby for the price. The MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter retails for $24. You can find out more about it HERE.
