Hello beautiful people! Today I wanted tell you all about Mark Jacobs, Dew Drops,
coconut gel highlighter. I’ve been experimenting with MJ’s Dew Drops since influencer sent it to me complementary to sample (gotta love influencer). I did experience a bit of a learning curve with this product. Although, I am very experienced using highlighters from all across the board, I’m talking, drugstore to high-end make up lines; this is my first liquid highlighter. I know, I know “never tried liquid highlighter?” I just wasn’t brave enough, till now.
I know I said liquid highlighter but it is a gel consistency, not runny in any way, thank the gods (old and new)! This made it easy to work with. A big thing you’ll notice with the dew drops is it’s very versatile. You can use it on your body, use it as you would a regular highlighter, or you can mix it into your foundation to give it a luminous finish. I did it all! I’m talking I mixed it into my foundation. Turned myself into a mermaid and put it on my cheekbones, Cupid’s bow and collarbone. You know what, I put it everywhere!
It provides this healthy glow without looking overwhelming or unnatural, if that even possible with a highlighter. This product is really unique in that way. I was able to wear this in the daytime without looking like I was wearing too much, it provided the perfect Glow!
My favorite way to use this has to be mixing it into my favorite foundation, Urban Decay, All Nighter. Which has a pretty matte finish, not the look I’m going for in the daytime. If I’m going out in the morning it’s just too flat on my face. This mixture of UD All Nighter and the dew drops worked really well. It was still the same long wear I expect from my foundation with an added luminosity.
My skin just looked flawless and healthy. I have textured skin and larger pores around my nose and cheeks. Usually highlighter and dewy finish foundations accentuate it making them more visible. Marc Jacobs dew drops did not (it’s like a unicorn). My skin stayed looking radiant and luminous, it never settled into my imperfections. It almost seemed like I was walking around with a Snapchat filter, perfect for this spring and summer.
My skin looked the nicest when I brushed over my foundation after applying with the beauty blender. Using a beauty blender alone my foundation wasn’t as full coverage and was harder to actually blend out all over my face. With the brush it blended like a dream, providing better coverage (the learning curve I was talking about). Same thing goes for the collarbone and for everything else you’re better off blending using either a brush or dabbing it on with your fingertips.
I’d really like to thank influencer, had it not been for being part of this Vox Box I wouldn’t have tried this highlighter, out of dreaded fear. Two thumbs up for this bad boy!!
So, if you’re looking to glow without blinding, Marc Jacobs, Dew Drops are for you.
