Want to achieve a soft glow? Well, Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl is your answer. It is a soft golden pink liquid pearl highlighter. This product contains moisturizing sesame seed oil and skin-soothing raspberry, chamomile, and sweet almond seed extract to improve skin firmness and smoothness. Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl has a sheer, light-reflecting formula that smells like fresh raspberries. You can wear it alone for a dewy look or over your makeup for a peal-like look.
To use, twist up the product, swipe half of the product on your forehead, brow bone, and cheekbones. Then tap lightly. It takes about 30 seconds to sit, since it is a little creamy and wet. But once it dries, it sets and lasts for a long time. It also gives nice glow.
I truly like this product. This highlighter is amazing because it is not sparkly. It just gives a beautiful sheen to your cheeks. You automatically look better and brighter when using it! It does not feel tacky. The formula is very thin and light, and it is also very easy to apply and buildable. It is not glittery and gives a nice dewy glow to skin, which is everything I could want. It also does not move my foundation around when I apply it.
I usually opt for powder highlighters, but this one is perfect for mixing with your foundation or dabbing on top of a BB cream for a finish that glows. The product comes out a pink hue, but when you rub or pat it into the skin, it melts into a beautiful pearly/gold sheen. A lot of highlighters that are more gold toned, tend to be quite pigmented, and can easily be overused.
The one thing I do not like about the product is the packaging. Since it is opaque and plastic, you cannot tell how much product you have left after using.
So other than the packaging, Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl ranks high for me. What is your favorite highlighter and why?
Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl retails for $30.00. It may be purchased at Ulta, Sephora and www.benefitcosmetics.com.
