MAC Lustre Drops are basically a liquid highlighter that gives the skin a luminous glow. This collection has brought two shades- a golden pink and a peachy bronze to help brighten up your complexion.

In This Post:

  • Pink Rebel ($19.50): Blue Pink with Gold Pearl
  • Sun Rush ($19.50): Peachy Bronze with Gold Pearl

MAC’s Lustre Drops have a similar purpose to Benefit High Beam and Moon Beam, although the packaging and colors are different. Both are used to be a liquid highlighter for the skin, and are an easy way to give your skin some life, as sometimes wearing too much foundation or powder can give your face a flat, dull presence. When using these, I would apply them either before or after liquid foundation (Before would give a sort of glow-from-within look, after a more obvious shimmer) and then set lightly with a translucent powder, as to not totally cover the glow.

These will be in the MAC permanent line starting April 7.

    I wonder how these would look mixed with a liquid foundation. Like just adding a drop to some liquid foundation before applying it…

    I’m curious which you think is the better buy, these or Benefit’s High Beam/Moon Beam?

      i’ve never tried moon beam, but i know that high-beam has more of a silver pearl, where pink rebel has more of a golden pearl. also, high/moon beam is a bit thicker than these consistency-wise. other than that theyre really similar, so it’d come down to price and the amount you get.

    I love the way these look, but I have fair skin with pink undertones. I didn’t know if it would be silly to put a pink-toned product on me? Or the other one would be too dark? What do you think?

    Looks kind of like those acrylic paint containers lol. I like that they are easy to dispense and you don’t need much to get a great amount of glow :)
