If you don't know by now, my go to highlighters are MAC's cream color bases. And while I use them A LOT and truly love them, they each have a concentrated color and are cream based, and I was looking for an almost colorless highlight that was liquid based. Why, you ask? Because I wanted a more natural highlight that was more about catching the light, then adding some obvious colored highlight.
Then I found it, Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl. I had tried it in Sephora many times before and never bought it because I wasn't used to such sheer highlighters. But the more work I did, the more I realized a need for a highlighter like it. When you swatch it, you can definitely see there is a small amount of pearl/gold pigmentation and tiny shimmer reflex. But once applied on the skin, it is pretty transparent but leaves a sheen to the skin.
It is pricey, can't deny that. It is $30 for .4oz but it's worth it for my kit. I love this product wholeheartedly.
And here is some of my work where I used Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl. Doesn't is catch the light AMAZINGLY!!!???
Has anyone tried this highlighter? What do you think?
