Golden Nectar

Pat McGrath Golden Nectar Divine Glow HighlighterPat McGrath Golden Nectar Divine Glow Highlighter ($48.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium peach with a slightly darker peach base paired with a shiny, reflective finish that was metallic but not prone to emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. The color appeared to have some depth to it as at certain angles, the darker base was more visible, which gave it a more highlighting blush effect on my skin tone.

The powder had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a smooth, almost wet-like texture that was more firmly-pressed into the pan, thin (but not in a bad way), and blendable. I didn’t have any issues picking up product with a typical, tapered highlighting brush, and I found it easy to apply and blend out. It wore well for nine hours before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$48.00/0.16 oz. - $300.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have an "ultra-reflective finish" and "silken feel" to give a "high intensity glow." The texture felt more emollient, almost wet to the touch, though it was distinctively a powder-based formula in practice.

It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage with a very thin, lightweight texture that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease. The finish was "high intensity" but didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

Another warm gold highlight that’s too dark for me. There’s no such thing as a universal shade!

Mother Pat, you’re killing me here! I am smitten with this super glowy excellence. But I’m trying to save for dental work, Christine’s collab with Sydney Grace and a long weekend in San Diego come July!

I saw a white female model that Pat had applied her blush and highlighter on and the results were absolutely stunning. I have the Hourglass dupe but I’m very tempted because, you know it’s Mother…

This highlighter is coming with my trio bundle and it’s a nice color. I don’t have any dupes you listed. I wonder how long it will take to pan this shade. I think I am set on highlighter until next hear…lol.

Not impressed. The one in the pink case is much more unique and with a more expensive formula. I wish he made a light champagne one in that formula

It’s lovely on you! I was waiting for your review to see how dark it is in real life. It’s too dark for me, but I’m happy for those who are excited about it. :o)
