Lancome Midnight Roses Blush highlighter
Good highlighter is a true treasure in every makeup bag. It makes your face alive, gives dimension, attracts light.
I got Midnight Roses Blush, a jewel of Lancome fall collection, for a review. Actually, while I was exchanging emails with Lancome PR, she asked me if I am interested in any particular item from their range. This highlighter was my choice and it surpassed my expectations.
It comes in black plastic packaging, simple, elegant…like all Lancome products. There is a mirror inside and 5 grams of product. Higlighter has a embedded 3d rose flower on the surface. Small brush is included although you cant expect a quality from it, but it works okay if you are i.e. somewhere out and need to touch up your makeup.
Product itself is made out of very fine shimmer which gives a “natural glow” look when applied. Shimmer particles are in beige and pink so it is easily usable for both yellow and pink undertones and for fair, medium and probably some dark skin tones. I have medium skin tone now and I cant say it gives any ashy cast, no matter how much I put on my cheeks.
Taken in direct sunlight.
I wore it all day yesterday and today. From now I can say staying power is impressive (count in the high temperatures,too) and I didnt went off my face even a little bit. It looked same in the evening as it was in the morning. Texture is beautiful, it applies so smoothly and blends perfectly with the rest of makeup. It shows no color on skin, just healthy shine. I applied it on cheeks below my eyes and under the eyebrow arch but it can also be used on brigde of the nose, forehead, chin and upper lip when you want to contour your face to the fullest. First swatch is taken in shade, second in direct sunlight. (Left – unblended, right – blended in)
I dont know exact price, but I see it is 42$ in USA, but knowing our prices on high end cosmetics, I guess this one will go for around 350,00kn, like most Lancome limited edition powders and highlighters. Someone correct me if I’m wrong or if you know the exact price. Edit: Price is 398,00kn. :)
In the end – would I buy this product? Well, I do realize the price is high on items like this one, but it is a high quality product which will last a long time and it will give the final touch to your makeup. So I would say yes, I would buy it. Nevermind the smudged eye makeup, this was taken after I was out for hours :D
If you are lover of high end cosmetics or you want to treat yourself with high quality piece of makeup, you should check out this product.
