It is summer in the Philippines and I this is time to look glowy, dewy and bronz-y! To be honest, I was never into those looks because I already have dark skin and I was never a fan of the dew-y look. However, I got this product as a prize (along with others) from Ana Victorino's raffle. I was kind of hesitant to try this at first because like what i have said,I am not sure as to how I will look with this on and I have no idea how to use this as well. But of course, the beauty /makeup junkie that I am gave in and tried this product.
NAME: MEMEME Beat the blues in Sunbeam
PRICE: P380 (got mine for free)
It came in a small container that looks like a nailpolish container.
Even the applicator looks like a nailpolish applicator.
What it says:
How it looks on my skin:
With highlighter on my cheeks and bridge of the nose: (I look scary in this picture )
It looks subtle and personally, I thought it will make me look oily but fortunately, it did not.
Okay, Im on the bridge here, do I kind of look oily? I think, I might have applied too much?
So here's another look :)
I also used mixed the product with my foundation. I used it with my Maybelline Clear Smooth Aqua Gel Foundation which has a matte finish.
It did not dramatically change the cover of the foundation but I like how it brightened my skin. The foundation itself has a matte and light to medium coverage.
I actually thought i will look like a glowing greaseball but I did not. I like the finish. It gave me a subtle overall glow.
My overall thoughts:
The packaging is nice and simple. Though it is not so hygienic since you have to dip the wand over again but I have had no breakouts so far so it all good.
It is okay. It works well and a little goes a long way. It does not have any unpleasant smell as well. Since it is a liquid highlighter, I find that it lasted on me for about 4-5 hours.
Well, it is a little difficult to find this product in the Philippines but there is a growing number of online sellers in Facebook that carries MeMeMe products. The price for me is okay. It is less than 500 pesos which is way cheaper than the Benefit ones.
-Apply a little amount first then slowly build it up. Too much product will make you look oily.
-Apply to areas that you want to highlight such as your brow bone, cupid's bow, bridge of the nose and highest points of your cheeks.
-Add a little amount to your matte foundation for that subtle glow.
- Apply bronzer, then blush then highlighter.
-It is best to use a matte foundation when using this product or be sure to set your foundation with a setting powder before using this.
I certainly recommend this product especially to those who have dry skin like me!! If you have oily skin, be sure to use a matte foundation and set it with a mattifying powder so that you will not end up looking like a greaseball.
So what are your thoughts about using highlighters?
