I am a self proclaimed highlight aficionado. I just want to gleam and shine bright and blind the weak. Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter does just that. First off, I was sold with the words "Dew", "Coconut" and "Highlighter". I thought to myself this must be the ultimate package.
I love all of Marc Jacobs minimally, chic packaging. The weight and feel of the gorgeously frosted glass bottle makes it feel like you've treated yourself to something really luxe.
It was love at first pump. This golden peach gleam is gorgeous and the shade is universal. It can work for those very fair as well as those very rich in melanin. The shimmer is soft (I wouldn't call this a glittery highlight at all) but the reflective beam can build up to be quite intense. VERY LITTLE GOES A VERY LONG WAY. Sometimes I pump the tiniest drop onto the back of my hand and it always seems like I've pumped out too much. The best way I've found to use this is to first apply with a small duo fibre brush and then blend quickly with a slightly damp beauty blender, issuing a bouncing method until it is blended the way I like.
You can use this highlighter on ANY Part of your body. You can blend this into your foundation for radiant, glowing coverage, or even into your body moisturizer for a gorgeous all over glow this summer.
I haven't had any problems with this product affecting my skin. I've experienced no irritations so far... (Bless! Because I'd be sad if I couldn't use this gorgeous highlighter).
This liquid highlighter is scented and smells very beach-y and I have a feeling every time I smell it I'm going to think of this upcoming summer because I know I will be grabbing for this highlighter plenty. Some of you may find this to be a problem, it says it is lightly scented on the website but I feel like it's fully scented. Although I love the scent I find it to be a bit strong.
You get a lot of bang for your buck with this product. It retails at Sephora, Sephora.com and MarcJacobsBeauty.com for $44. You get 0.8oz of product and even half of a pump is too much so this will def last you. If you want to treat yourself to a luxe highlight and you're ready to glow I think you should give this gem a try.
