This highlighter is a mini-miracle. Admittedly, at nearly $40 the price tag is hefty. $40 can buy you a lot in the highlighter world (basically a lifetime supply of e.l.f. baked highlights, or an Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit). And while I wouldn’t say I like this highlight better than its counterparts from brands like Tarte or Makeup Geek, this highlight is unlike any other.
I think what makes the Makeup Forever Pro Light Fusion Highlighter most unique is that, whether you like a soft glow or an over-the top highlight, you will be impressed. I guarantee it. This highlight has no fallout whatsoever. It’s incredibly lightweight and smooth; it blends like second skin. It’s buildable, with a sheer color. I wear Shade 1: Golden Pink, because I like a pink-toned highlight on my pale skin. Shade 2 is beautiful on medium skin tones (and I’m sure on deep skin tones, as well, I’ve just never seen it in action).
What’s amazing about this highlighter is that it catches the light perfectly. A lot of highlights have their own glitter, shimmer, or pigment, and while this one does have some shimmer to it, it does an amazing job of reflecting light. Even if you’re wearing a lot of this highlighter, it still looks somehow, somewhat natural. As an added bonus, it photographs beautifully.
