MeMeMe Beat the Blues Liquid Highlighter in Oyster Gold Review

MeMeMe Beat the Blues Liquid Highlighter in Oyster Gold


I have often bemoaned the lack of golden hued highlighters available on the high street, sure we have Benefit Sunbeam which truth be told is more bronze than golden and as a result not suitable for all and MAC Gold Deposit but other than that the offerings are rather thin on the ground. The other problem is both aforementioned products are fairly pricey and perhaps better saved for a splurge? Well ladies and gentlemen your soft golden highlight prayers have been answered in the form of MeMeMe Beat the Blues Liquid Highlighter in Oyster Gold.

Much like Benefit's liquid cheek and face products MeMeMe Beat the Blues highlighters all comes presented within a glass bottle very much like a nail polish all the way down to the style of brush.
The bonus of having an inbuilt brush is that it saves faffing around to find something suitable to apply the product with and in turn cuts down on mess which liquid products can sometimes go hand in hand with.
To use MeMeMe Beat the Blues I simply use the aforementioned brush (which can be a little stiff but I found rinsing under warm water helped soften it somewhat) and simply dot on a few times on each cheekbone (around three to four dots) and then using my ring finger I pat the liquid into my skin for a soft focus finish.

MeMeMe Beat the Blues Liquid Highlighter in Oyster Gold is a light neutral toned pearlescent gold, it does lean slightly pink in some lights but reflects golden in others making it suitable for most complexions. It really is a beautiful and complex shade that adds a luminous finish to the skin without the need for glitter.
If like myself you have enlarged pores I would deem (i'm not an expert just going on past experiences) liquid highlighters tend to be the best option as they offer a softer focus finish and don't tend to settle into said pores or fine lines for that matter. In terms of wear MeMeMe Beat the Blues when applied to my cheekbones tends to outlast the rest of my make-up and can easily last for up to 10 hours. What I like most about liquid highlighters is that not only can you use them in the typical sense but you can also add a few drops to your foundation for an quick and easy way to add all over radiance to the face. I also find blending a little down my shin bone when baring my legs (gulp, that time is near upon us all) gives the illusion of longer and slimmer legs.

  4. I've often heard that Mememe highlighters are a great dupe for the infamous Benefit ones. I really like the looks of this and the sheen it gives to the skin is gorgeous.

  5. I've always wanted to try the Me Me Me highlighters but my local store lost the range. This looks lovely, I'll have to go to a bigger Superdrug I think.

  11. I used to buy a lot of MeMeMe products from Superdrug. Their cheek tints/highlighters are a much cheaper version of the Benefit products.

  15. It does really look like a nail polish..and actually thinking about it i wouldn't mind that shade :D
    It looks very creamy and i like the idea of the brush although i would probably end up to using way much product that I need.

  16. It is a lovely shade and a lovely dupe for the highly coveted Benefit products. I think MeMeMe do an excellent range of high end copies for very little money.
