MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter (Light Boost)

I la-la LOOOOVE this product. I've heard nothing but good things about it and I just couldn't resist buying it when I was browsing my local MAC store. I have got really into highlighting and contouring recently and have decided to slowly grow my collection of highlighting and contour products to try and find what works best for me. The MAC Prep + Prime Highlighters are in a click pen style applicator and it comes in three different shades. 

Light Boost is a yellow tone highlighter and is good for lightening dark areas and as I have yellow/olivey undertones I went for this one.There is also Radiant Rose, which is the pink tone and Bright Forecast is a peachy, orange tone. I love MAC packaging, I think it looks really sleek and classy but I particularly love the Prep + Prime packaging because it's sparkly!

You can use any of these highlighters over makeup for highlighting or under makeup to brighten and prime. The way I use it is to put it under my eyes and either side of my nose to brighten up these areas are a bit darker. Then I draw a T shape from the bottom of my forehead and down the bridge of my nose to highlight. I have been experimenting with using it before and after foundation and I'm not sure which I prefer yet.
