Product Review: MAC Lustre Drops Pink Rebel & Sun Rush.
MAC Lustre Drops Pink Rebel
MAC Lustre Drops in Sun Rush
Lets get straight to the point, a lot of you know that I used to have a youtube channel before this blog but I decided to shut it down as I shifted to India and did not know what was next on the cards for me, well while I still had that channel MAC UK sent me a few products from their collections at that time which I did not really use or even swatch for a while, but I have rediscovered them after attempting to clean my makeup closet! The two products are you can read from the title are their lustre drops. The Sun Rush lustre drops are a part of their regular collection whereas Pink Rebel make an entry and exit pretty often. The Pink Rebel in the UK is available at the moment in their Baking Beauties Collection and was launched in a couple of collections before that (Summer 2009 To The Beach Collection and a few others since) I really do hope MAC India brings this product as I think its just a fantastic product and its multipurpose.
First up for discussion is the MAC Lustre Drops in Sun Rush. This beautiful rich golden product has a smooth, creamy and even texture. This stuff, mixed in with your favorite foundation can turn your matte finish to an instant glow (very Kim Karadashian-esque) in seconds. The Lustre drops have a pearl finish and when mixed in with your favorite foundation look glamourous yet in no way does it effect the color of the foundation itself, so don’t worry about that (as long as you don’t apply too much of course!!). It just makes your skin look more sun-kissed, more dewy and glowing. It’s like the best of both worlds! The MAC website describes it as a bronzer but I think its more of a highlighter. I use Sun Rush mixed in with my tinted moisturizer and apply evenly all over my face with the beauty blender and it looks amazing!

MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel: Now, now there is a lot of confusion about this product. One SA told me that this product will be added to their permanent collection while one told me it’s a part of their Baking Beauties Collection and will be limited edition but launched quite frequently. Either way I'm happy to have it as long as it gets re launched after every 4-5 collections. The pink rebel has a pink base with golden shimmer. This product is amazing as it can be used as a highlighter but on days when you want bright eyes and lips , you can tone your makeup down on the cheeks by using this as you blush and highlighter and it works perfectly well. It gives your cheeks a pinkish glow. I am undecided whether I would mix this in with a foundation though as it may mess up the yellow tone in my foundation and make my face look whiter or pinkish-ghostly. But as a highlighter & blush this is fantastic.
