Hello Lovely ladies,
After a long time again, I am introducing you another cream base highlighter from MAC Riri Collection- Cream base # DIAMOND. It seems I have become a fan of highlighters lately. Anyways let’s start reviewing it and keep reading below
What MAC claim’s: MAC Cream Colour Base DIAMONDS.-Limited edition from RIRI <3 Hearts Mac collection.
Price: 1450 INR for 5gm. OR $22 USD for 0.17 oz.
When RiRi Hearts Mac collection launched in Kolkata everyone was crazy getting Riri Woo lipstick and no wonder it went OOS within half day. In my case I was little late getting it but finally I managed to lay my hand on Riri woo very soon. Riri woo which is now world famous shade after ruby woo. There are few more products which were left little neglected. The MAC RiRi Hearts MAC Collection for fall 2013 also includes the MAC RIRI Collection Cream base # DIAMOND.
MAC described as a champagne-beige cream base highlighter with lightly frosted -metallic finish. I was basically looking out for nice highlighter and when MAC MUA applied it on my face and explained how I can use it as multipurpose base I was pretty impressed seeing the result.
This is very Versatile and multi-purpose, cream colour base which can be applied directly to bare skin, or layered over foundation, moisturizer, or powder. You can apply it on your cheekbones, eyebrow area, cupid bow, bridge of nose, collarbone and even as eye shadow base. Hence Multipurpose product!! You can apply it with a sponge, or fingers. I generally prefer fingers and apply on the area desired. It is not a superb creamy product which melts while touching. But a perfect consistency which helps picking up right about of product without wasting too much. Colour effects range from a light veil to highly dramatic, depending on method of application.
I generally apply it over my BB cream and set it with studio fix powder. The formula applies easily to skin and blends beautifully. It definitely adds an extra dimension to your face and gives sheen and glow to face. Although this product is not for daily use but I thoroughly enjoying this product. On applied proper amount gives you natural dewy look. Staying power I could say 7 hours on me if set with powder.
Lastly, I love the packaging. The golden rose shade compliment the whole collection and then Riri signature makes more elegant, stylist and glamorous look. This is the first feature why people are so attracted towards RIRI Collection <3
