    I am nw10-15 and I love mac lightscapade layered over Luna ccb or nars Luxor multiple

  2. I love these photos!
    I like to use Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector, makes me feel so glowy in the dark, gloomy winter.
    Have you seen the upcoming Shu collection based around brightening?

    I don’t have one, but I want to try the Benefit Watt’s Up

  5. Adrienne

    I only own Mary lou manizer but I tell everyone about it! It is beautiful

  6. Sugarbomb looks so purdy. :)

    I’ve been thinking of Mary Lou for a long time… But I like cream products, so when Watt’s Up came out I was conflicted… which one should I get?? Oh dear.

    intersting you feature sugarbomb as a highlighter.. even when i have a deep tan and have to pile it on to show up it is a pure blush on me, and never a highlighter?
    love the golden lustre drops (the darker ones), many of the bobbi brown shimmerbricks especially abricot and beige (candlelight glow.. mmh!), bronze is really nice too..
    oh and discovered the jemma kidd creame highlighters.. awesome holiday season stuff! rose gold is even nicer than iced gold!

  9. I Love Mary-Lou Manizer!

  10. NARS Albatross, pixi Energy Blush in Golden Energy, MAC Cream Color Base in Pearl, LORAC Perfectly Lit in Spotlight have been my favorites this fall/winter (NC10-15). :)

    I love my Mary-lou Manizer…also like MAC’s Lightscapade. I have been drooling over Guerlain’s Parure de Nuit and wish I had got it earlier. It’s not at my NM and Dillard’s online shipping is crazy high. :-/

    I think I will be wearing Miss Liberty for the rest of my life! I’m really pale and wonder if Mary Lou will look as good on me..

    Christine- is the parure de nuit made in France? Does the packaging say France? Someone said to me it’s made in Italy…and I think they are incorrect. I figured if anyone knew you would. :-)

    NARS Albatross goes a long way, on the cheekbone and under the eyebrow. Also, just putting a touch of moisturizer on the cheekbone right after to keep that sheen works well too. (A little tip I read in Elle)

  15. Patrícia

    Dior – Night Diamond – Allover Diamond Dust, wich was a limited edition for the holidays a few years ago, maybe 2008…

  16. amy

    ahh i love highlights! i can’t decide between the mary lou one or the dior amber diamond. do you still like amber diamond?

  17. Ayesha

    If you could only choose one highlighter for the rest of your life, which would it be? I can’t afford to get so many highlighters so want one but for it to be my staple! x
