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.
