Finding Mr. Bright

I love brightening products because my skin is acidic. I was quite excited to try out this kit and today was the perfect timing.

The kit contains:

  • Girl Meets Pearl – liquid pearl for the face
  • Posie Tint – poppy-pink tinted lip & cheek stain
  • High Beam – luminescent complexion enhancer
  • Erase Paste – brightening camouflage for eyes and face

I already have the the Erase Paste prior to this kit. I was very intrigued with Girl Meets Pearl so I used that first. According to the directions, you can layer this over makeup or use alone for a pearlized effect. You must know that I no longer use face primers because they speed up the acidity effect on my skin thus making it look darker. I used Girl Meets Pearl over my Laura Mercier liquid foundation. It blended quite nicely and prevented any darkening. Your skin will really look brighter with this product.

Next is the Erase Paste. This is one of the best concealers I’ve ever used as it retains its brightness in spite of my acidic skin. It takes a whole day for my under eye area to darken.

Posie Tint was a bit of a disappointment. The direction says to apply 3 small strokes on your cheek then blend. I was scared with the bright pink color and so I tested it on the back of my hand first. Not much color there. So I applied three small strokes on my cheek then blended. Not much color there either. So I applied three more. The color showed but it was just a bit of a flush. I wouldn’t recommend this product if you want your cheeks pink. This is great for a dewy look though. Oh, and the product is blendable and does not easily dry up so you don’t end up looking like a clown.

Lastly, High Beam. I love this product! It’s a perfect everyday highlighter for the bridge of the nose, chin and cheek bones. The only highlighters I use are MAC Chez Chez Lame and Bobbi Brown Bone and I only use these when I want to look all glammed up. High Beam is a nice, subtle highlighter for casual/work days.

I tried to take a photo but I don’t think you’ll notice the products:


You’ll see the highlighter though. (I can’t wait to get a new cam!) So that ends this 3-part series of my OOTD, EOTD and FOTD.
