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?

    1. Leesha says

      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?
