The Mecca Cosmetica Enlightened Lit from Within highlighter has always been something I’ve wanted for ages so when they brought out the Enlightened Trio in Warm this Christmas I knew it would be that it would be mine. If you read yesterdays post then you’ll know that I got it from Laura as a Christmas present and I am beyond grateful. So keep reading to find out what I think about it
There’s a fair trio which is perfect for those of you who have fair or light skin and then warm which works well for more medium and tan skin tones. The powders are a baked formula but still soft to touch. The palette comes in a copper packaging, so it will be perfect for Instagram photos, and contains a decent sized mirror. The packaging does collect fingerprints which is annoying but it’s so gorgeous that I can deal with it.
The warm palette contains
a light champagne shade which will be perfect for winter.
a warm gold which will work great year round.
and a bronze that will look amazing with a tan in summer.
All three shades swatch beautifully and give you a stunning glow without looking glittery. I can get a good six to eight hours of wear before it starts to fade. I”ve applied it with both the Sigma E35 Tapered Highlighter brush*, which works great for a more direct highlight, and the Models Prefer 103 Highlight and Contour brush*, for a more sheered out and blended look, and both work really well.
The Enlightened Trio* retails for $69 and is available from Mecca. Each highlight contains 2.5g and the palette is limited edition so I’d get in quick if it’s something that you want to gift to someone or that you need for your collection.
