The Perfect Kim K Highlighter

Mac Prep & Prime Highlighter Light Boost Review
Hello my darlings I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! One of my favourite parts about my full make up routine is contouring and highlighting. It's not something I do everyday but when I do I really aim for a Kim K inspired look. Whether you're a fan of her or not, you've got to admit that she (or maybe her make up artist) is the Queen when it comes to this! I've wanted Mac Prep + Prime Highlighter for the longest time as I've heard such fab things about it so when Matt brought me this for Christmas I was SO happy (he does listen!)
The shade I have is Light Boost which is yellow based so it's perfect for counteracting any discolouration whilst brightening at the same time adding instant luminosity and radiance. I love that this is a clicky pen so you can apply exactly where you want with precision without wasting product. I tried using this as a concealer for underneath my eyes as I know lots of people do however I found it creased a lot for me so I now apply this over my concealer and it's perfect! It doesn't look thick or cakey as it has such a lightweight, creamy texture that blends like a dream. I also use this to highlight the bridge of my nose, forehead, chin and on my cheeks just underneath where I contour to add more dimension.
As you can most probably tell I love this highlighter and I have a feeling it's easily going to become a staple item of mine. I don't know how I've gone this long without it!
Have you tried this before?
What are your favourite products to highlight and contour with?
