Mac Cream Color Base vs. Urban Decay highlighter

4 years ago

I`ve been trying to find the perfect highlighter for the past few months and it`s been hectic. I`ve tried a few drugstore brands and realize those quicklys weared away. So I decided to try out the Urban Decay highlighter in "Moonshine" because the makeup artist at sephora recommended it. My budget was around $15-25 and this fell a little bit over my category. I ended up purchasing it and then followed up at the MAC counter and purchased the MAC cream color base in pearl. here`s my results,

Pros of Urban Decay:
-Lasts long
-Great for night outs for glamming it up
-great for people who look for dramatics
-the base is REALLY pretty and adds shine
- REALLY highlights your features
- Noticeable, great for blending w/ blushes
-control of how much you put on
-little goes a long way

- A bit too shimmery for me (look at swatch)
-Not very blendable
- not suitable for dark skin tones
- unnatural to my skin

MAC cream base in pearl pros:
- really blendable
-suitable for many skin types
-great to use as a eye color base
-really natural results
- Perfect color to provide a soft look
- really pretty paleish colors
-highly blendable with blush (MUST TRY!)
- will wash out unless you wear primer
- quad makes you get tiny amounts at a time
- color base will crease if you put too much

overall results, moonshine`s great for a night out yet mac pearl is great for everyday look. I ended up returning the moonshine because it wasn`t really working well along w/ my skintone. I resorted to mac pearl because of the inexpensive $17.50 price and its really versatile to use as a highlighter & color base while I can make good use of it. What do you think ?
