Review: Maybelline Dream Mousse Highlighter ♥

It had been soooo long that I was looking for a good highlighter in Pakistan but my search literally seemed to have no end! It was soo frustrating. Every time I went and asked a makeup counter if they had a good highlighter with a subtle glow, but even though, I was always shown a wide variety of highlighters, they all seemed so thick and cakey! But then, Sana being my life saver that she always is, told me to give Maybelline Dream Mousse Shimmer in the shade 01 Porcelain a try! She wore it once in front of me and since I already adore her wonderful skin, I fell in love with her suggestion!

I have a wedding in the family coming up in a week or so and the wedding fever is already in full swing, so I went and bought the dream mousse highlighter. I was soo glad when my mom was like, why are your cheeks glowing today! See, I told you, water helps! Hahahaha! I then revealed my beauty secret! Just as the name, it gives such a pearl-like, porcelain effect to your cheeks and being my first time, I applied it to my cheeks only, I believe it can be applied where ever the light naturally hits the face (cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, and cupids bow).

The highlighter is a sheer pink with shimmer in it, and has lilac undertones which gives the skin a subtle glow. One of the best things about this highlighter is that it's long lasting. This particular shade is for light to medium skin tones, there are a variety of shades to choose from.

It's light and blends into the skin perfectly! I LOVE it! It cost me Rs. 840 which makes it like almost $10. That's quite reasonable and sooo worth it! Thank you Sana!!! :))

It's not available at Maybelline counters in Pakistan (it is available at Maybelline counters in other parts of the world). I bought it from Al-Noor, it's the plaza behind the liberty outlet of Warda. Sana bought hers from Liberty as well. She bought the highlighter from Chanel (yes, that's the name of the shop) a shop right under Enem.
