Marc Jacobs Beauty – Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter

I received the Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter complimentary from Influenster for review a few weeks ago. When I found out I was chosen to review this products, I was super excited.  I have heard such great things about the Marc Jacobs Beauty brand and wanted to test this out!  Dew Drops is a lightweight, coconut-infused gel highlighter that can be applied directly onto the skin or added to a foundation or primer for a glow.  I have been trying it the last few weeks and am finally able to give a good honest review.

PROS:

  • The packaging is very fancy.  The product comes in a nice glass bottle.  It feels very luxurious.
  • The amount of product that comes in the package is a lot!
  • A little goes a long way = this bottle will last forever!
  • Great for mixing with your foundation for a glow from within look
  • The Radiant Finish color has a gold tint and will work on most skintones.
  • Marc Jacobs Beauty has been known for having some great products

CONS:

  • It’s a bit hard to control when you just want to highlight your cheekbones.  I find that when I put a little, I can’t see anything.  Then I put a few more drops on my cheekbones and then it’s too much.  Since it’s like a lotion I have to rub rub rub.  Well, I don’t want to rub rub rub.  I want it to sink in when I pat it on with my fingers, which it doesn’t do.
  • Doesn’t smell like coconut – which I feel like it should since it has coconut oil.

Final thoughts: Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter definitely tried to jump on the highlighter bandwagon.  Unfortunately, I prefer to use my powder highlighter.  If you are looking for a subtle glow to add to your foundation – this is it!

Thank you Influenster & Marc Jacobs Beauty for letting me review this product!  #CoconutGlow #contest @Influenster @MarcBeauty

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop

Happy New Year everyone!!!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.  I was incredibly lazy the last 2 weeks and it was wonderful!  I was able to spend time with my closest girl friends, do a thorough cleaning of my room and closet, and hang out with my cats.  I am pretty sure I took a 2-3 hour nap almost every single day and I have to say that I enjoyed every minute of it!

As I was looking through my posts, I could not believe that I have not written a post about the best highlighter ever!  A few months ago, I was online and noticed a huge trend for the Becca and Jaclyn Hill collaboration.  Of course I was intrigued. Jaclyn Hill is an incredibly popular beauty YouTuber known for her love of highlighter.  I went right over to Sephora and purchased the highlighter not really knowing what to expect.  Man oh man, this is the BEST highlighter ever!  I sweep it on the apples of my cheeks with a fan brush, dab a bit on the inner corners of my eyes to look awake, and another dab right on my cupid’s bow.  I look awake and refreshed without looking like I just threw glitter all over my face.

I think it’s perfect for a lot of different skin tones and can definitely work for you.  I purchased the Champagne Pop color which is a soft white gold with pinky peach undertones.  This color is also the main staple of the BeccaxJaclyn Hill collaboration.  A lot does go a long way so be careful when applying.  Also, I heard that if you travel with it, it WILL most likely shatter so be very careful.  But if it does, there are a lot of great hacks online that will help you put it right back together.

So, what are my final thoughts?  This is a definite NEED in your cosmetic arsenal.  I cannot tell you how much more awake I look with this on and, dare I say, glowing?  It’s worth the hype!
