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.

Which one has longer wear? I’m also thinking powder products’ shelf life has got to be longer than cream.. right?

Christine, what is your recommendation for a duo highlighter and (matte) bronzing product?

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!

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. :-/

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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)

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
