great for subtle highlight on WOC
Tags +Long wearing, sheer
I've been using the product for several months now and it works great. I'm in the shade "NC45"(I'm a lot lighter in the winter months) and "light boost" is the perfect shade for my yellow/golden undertones. At first I was afraid of it being too light for my skin but with this product a little goes a LONG way. I apply this product on top of a concealer that's my same skin tone just to give my self a subtle but brighter highlighting effect. it turns out great in person and in pictures! I would definitely recommend this product and it is now an absolute must-have in my makeup bag.

Love it!!!!
Tags +Creamy, Long wearing, Color true
I bought this at my local M.A.C. store yesterday and I'm in love with it! I really wanted something to brighten my under eyes and forehead and it's a dream! Doesn't have too many sparkles it's very subtle. I use it on top of my concealer, on the center of my forehead and down the bridge of my nose and I'm just obsessed with this! Must have! It also makes your skin so so smooth where it's applied!

Absolutely Amazing
Peach Lustre is the miracle pen! I have under eye dark circles that give me the blues. I use this highlighter which is very simple to apply and then use concealer. It covers all day. I cannot live with it!!

Lightboost
Wouldn't want to ever live without Lightboost! I use it under my eyes and top of my cheeks and set it with Emphasize. Brightens me up while looking natural. Love love love!

LOVE this highlighter! I have been looking for a great highlighter and I'm so glad I finally found it in this product. I have medium/tan skin and I use the shade "Light Boost". It gives me the perfect color to brighten me up without looking too light. Easy to apply and wears well.

LOVEEEE!
Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing
I love to use the Peach Lustre prior to applying my foundation on any hyperpigmentation I have to neutralize it and have my skintone to be one even shade. It is so good that I can even wear it on its own and look totally even. I need 50! Delivery system could be a little better? I feel like I have to twist it twice to get enough for one small area. But that does not stop me as it is perfect. Love love love!

Lifesaver!!
Tags +Creamy, Color true, Long wearing
If you're a woman of color and have dark circles under your eyes, this product is the answer to your problems. I'm usually a NC42/NW35 and as soon as I put this product under my eyes, my dark circles were nonexistant. It's creamy and does not crease whatsoever. I would recommend putting concealer over top of it just so the orange-y isn't so noticeable.

I do like these, but they can be drying if you're not properly moisturized.

Tags +Smudge resistant, Crease resistant
I apply Peach Lustre highlighter under my eyes before using concealer. I would never think this would work but it's magical bright eyes even if I'm sleep deprived. I take my time and blend then add concealer on top and blend again. I am no makeup pro but I get great results with this. I'm a NW45.

Under Eye Miracle Worker!
Tags +Smudge resistant, Crease resistant, under eye circles, under eye redness, natural look
I have fairly pale skin (freckles; I burn, but then I tan) and I have struggled for years with my under eye circles. I have always been so self-conscious about them and trying to find the perfect concealer has been a nightmare. When I went into MAC, the makeup artist noticed that my under eye circles were actually due to redness and that I didn't need a typical concealer!
I am 110% happy with this product and I would recommend it to anyone! I love that I can use it alone and it perfectly blends in with my skin. I don't have to worry about my under eye area looking super pale or bright. This product also works wonders when my eyes are super puffy and red from allergies. Even though this product is for the eye area, I have also found that it works with small blemishes. It completely takes all of the redness away! I also love that it is super blendable, so I can also use it after I put my foundation and eyeshadow on to touch it up before I leave!

I love this highlighter! It can be used for contouring, or just to highlight parts of the face (that's mainly how I use it). I know there are many others out there, but this one is my absolute favorite!!

I purchased the pen in peach Lustre; an orange like color. This is great for discoloration and Under eye circles in skin colors NC45 and deeper. It has a smooth consistency and is easy to blend. I apply it between my primer and foundation.

Amazing product!
Tags +highlighting and concealing under eyes
I use this product under my eyes in a triangle shape to create that Kim Kardashian-esque highlighted look. I use bright forecast because of its peachy color to counteract the blueness of my under-eye circles and it works amazingly! I honestly cannot live without this product. The only downfall would be the way the product comes out, I have to turn the bottom so many times before any product comes out, and when it does its all at one. Other than that its an incredible product!
