MAC prep + prime 'light boost' highlighter review

Trying to disguise dark under eye circles is an absolute nightmare, isn't it girls? Well fear no more as I think I might just have found a miracle product, forget the daily battle with concealer as that'll be a thing of the past once you get your hands on MAC Prep + prime highlighter in the shade 'light boost' -phew, what a lengthly name. 

You might think that forking out £18.50 is a bit steep for a highlighter but it's honestly worth every penny and I'll definitely be repurchasing once mines ran out. I really like the pen applicator where you just simply twist the end of the pen to release the product, it means that no product goes to waste. It's also really handy for on the go too so if you wanted to retouch your makeup whilst you're out it'd be super quick and easy. 

I bought this purely to brighten up my under eye area as I suffer from particularly bad dark circles but I've also been using it to highlight my cheekbones too for those days I want a more subtle highlight. It's a really creamy, lightweight product so it won't look cakey in the slightest and it blends so smoothly! Also it's absolutely brilliant for contouring so if you're after that Kim K look then here's your product, it really brightens up your whole face and gives the nicest 'lit from within' effect. 

After just applying it once I was head over heels in love, my dark under eye circles were finally gone and I looked so much more awake. I can't tell you how happy I was and for that reason I haven't got a bad word to say and would recommend this to anybody that's looking for a good highlighter that they can use to contour with! I'd go as far to say this is one of my 'holy grail' products. 

PS - if you'd like to know how I apply this product then then you can read about it, here
