Disadvantages: tend to waste a lot to get it right
A product, marketed as a highlighter, designed to bring out those areas of the face that can reflect light to create a glowing, beautiful effect.
The product itself is packaged in the same way as most of benefits liquidy type products, a small bottle with a black lid, resembling nail varnish. Again this also has the typical brush type applicator similar to a nail varnish bottle.
The liquid itself is a peachy apricot type colour, with a sheeny, almost pearlised effect. It has tiny particles inside it which give it that shiny highlighting aspect. Its quite thick, but goes on easily and i find it is much easier to blend than posietint or benetint, when using fingers.
The product comes with a guide as to how to use it, it is suggested to be placed along the brow bone, in a c shape around the outer eye, down the bridge of the nose and in the cupids bow. It has also been suggested to mix some of the moonbeam in with moisturizer and foundation but i find that it makes you look rather odd and etheral-esq.
On application, when using the brush it can wipe the base foundation off from underneath. Dotting it on with the brush and then patting it into the skin is for me the best way to use this product.
I absolutely love this product, the single bottle lasts me approx 2 years and im currently on my 2nd bottle. I think that it is more suited to darker, olive skins due to the peach tones in the product. It can get clumpy towards the end, however a sit in the fridge tends to fix that problem.
It is quite expensive but i definately think its worth the price tag.
Summary: probably the best highlighter ive used to date
