MAC CREAM COLOR BASE
DESCRIPTION: Versatile subtle highlighting cream.
COST: $16.50 USD $35 AUD
PERFECT FOR: Those wanting a nice subtle sheen. Great for highlighting the brow bone, cheek bones, inner corner of eyes, bridge of nose etc. If you have very very oily skin I would not recommend this, as it may intensify the oiliness.
APPLY WITH: Small brush (such as 195), sponge or fingers.
REVIEW: I purchased my MAC Cream Color Base (CCB) from the MAC website. I really wanted to try the shade Luna, but unfortunately they were sold out, so I decided on the shade Pearl instead.
The color Pearl is a nice light champagne color with a nice shimmer. The consistency of this product is like a thinnner and oiler version of MAC Blushcreme. It is a little bit oily, so don’t go too crazy with it if you have oily skin because you might end up looking a bit greasy.
I find this product looks best on the inner corner of my eyes and applied lightly down the bridge of my nose. It gives those areas a nice glow. Because i’m so pale (NC15) CCB tends to disappear when I apply it to my cheeks or on my brown bone.
If you are after a more intense highlighter, try mixing CCB with a little bit of MAC’s Vanilla or Frozen White Pigment.
OVERALL: I think this a great subtle highlighter for everyday use because it’s not too intense. I find this product would give more of an intense color on people who are NC/NW30 and above. I would definitely recommend this because it gives skin such a beautiful glow. I look forward to trying more CCB shades.
