MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter Light Boost Review

MAC Prep and Prime Light Boost Review
MAC is definitely one of my favourite brands. Every product I have tried I have loved and the MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter is definitely right at the top. I have tried many drugstore highlighters and not been impressed so I decided to splurge on this one from MAC. 

I picked the shade Light Boost which is yellow toned. I am an NW20 in MAC Foundations so I like to go the opposite to highlight, hence picking a yellow shade. This highlighter is available in four shades including Radiant Rose (Light Shell Pink), Bright Forecast (Mid Tone Peachy Coral) and Peach Lustre (Bronzey Orange). At £19.00 this is definitely not a cheap highlighter. I ordered online and when it arrived I have to say I was really impressed with the size of the product. Drugstore highlighter pens are quite thin whereas this one is very chunky and you get alot of product.

Is it worth the hype?
Yes! Definitely Yes! I am so in love with this highlighter I won't use anything else. You twist the bottom for the product to come out and apply with the brush applicator. I find one twist pretty much covers everywhere I want it to. I usually apply under my eyes in a upside down triangle, my nose, chin and forehead. It really brightens up my face and under eyes. I apply a white or translucent powder on top using the baking method which really makes a huge difference. Some people do use this as a concealer but it is extremely light coverage, it is designed to brighten and be more of a highlight. I apply this on top of concealer to brighten area's more.

Overall it is the best liquid highlighter I have ever used. £19.00 may seem alot of money but when a product works as well as this its worth it. 


  1. MAC is a brand I need to try more from, half their products sound so amazing and I really need to check some more things out!

  2. I love this product :) I love the coverage and the finish that it gives. I also went out to buy the more pinkier shade bright forecast too! Great product by MAC.

    Have a lovely day ♥

  3. I really want to get this as I have only heard great things. I thought I could use it as a concealer for my under eye area or would you need a seperate one in combination with this?

  9. Ooh I think it would be too yellow toned for my skin, but I might see if they have a pink version as it sounds really great! I LOVE your nails!!! xx

  12. I've been using this product in the pink toned shade over my regular under-eye concealer for over a year now and I really thinks it adds some great brightness and takes away all of my circles! :D xxx
