I love a good highlight - a duo chrome highlight though? thats a whole other ball game. Mac launched their In The Spotlight Collection a few weeks back which included 4 new shades of their iconic Strobe Cream and 4 new shades of Extra Dimension Skinfinishes. 

I swatched the shade Beaming Blush in Selfridges when the collection dropped and couldn't stop thinking about it, which I figured was a sign that I needed to invest in it, naturally. The shade Soft Frost ended up in my collection as a bit of an accident which I explained all over on my snapchat (deliciouslyf - for anyone interested). 

Beaming Blush is described as a Pink which breaks Gold. Initially I was concerned this would be too pink for my pale complexion and would have to use it as a blush topper but the pink is actually fairly subtle. The gold reflects running throughout make my cheekbones pop like crazy, it's very pigmented but works best with a thicker highlighting brush rather than a fan brush. 

Soft Frost is a White which breaks Violet. I've never seen anything like this apart from the likes of Anastasia Beverly Hills, which I haven't been fortunate enough to get my hands on. Similar to Beaming Blush, this shade catches the light like crazy however pulls more violet and so would probably look best on paler skin tones. 

The formula is finely milled and easy to blend, with an incredible amount of pigmentation. It's not as soft as the Balm Mary-lou Manizer which is probably due to the sleek, futuristic design embossed into it, but this gives you lots of control ensuring you don't go overboard. I love applying them with the Zoeva 105 Highlighting brush. 

Beaming Blush and Soft Frost cost £24 each and I purchased them from
