This is my most beloved highlighter, and I'm not even a fan of Victoria's Secret! I think most of their stuff is crap, but I have to say there is a few precious gems here and there which I won't deny my love for, another one being the Beauty Rush Soothing Lip Balm.
I'm not exactly happy with the packaging of the highlighter, but I really do love the stuff inside. The Mosaic Highlighter has 5 shades: white, lilac, pink, yellow, and beige. When swirled together, they give me the most angelic glow that only gets better as the night wears by - a rare feat indeed as most cosmetic products do just the opposite on my combination-dry skin! By the end of the night, instead of settling into my pores, it blends in with my skin, making me look like I was photoshopped!! Nuts! It's like the powder itself adapts to moisturizing my dry cheek and at the same time absorbs all the oil on my t-zones. Isn't it crazy or what??? And the difference with this highlighter on is just amazing! I look instantly awake and rested, even when I'm exhausted and stressed out and ready to kill someone!
Anyway, the only minor problem about this highlighter is that, because it works so well, it's best used at night. The powerful wattage this powder provides does not mix well with daylight, and you can look over done. With that said, it didn't prevent me from using it during the day at all! :P I just have to be more careful about how much I put on.
Now the sad, sad, sad news: this highlighter has been discontinued for quite a while now. Actually, I think Victoria's Secret is discontinuing my beloved Soothing Lip Balm as well. Stupid. What were they thinking? They are killing the products that actually build brand loyalty!!! Garr...
Anyhow, I did managed to find another very similar, actually, an exact look-alike, product from NYX for half the original Victoria's Secret price. Will definitely give that one a try, that is, after I'm done mourning the death of my favorite highlighter first. To hell with Victoria's Secret.
