Highlighter Addicts Rejoice! MAKE UP FOR EVER Has Released The Pro Light Fusion And It is Literally #Goals! Review + Swatches

I've got some exciting news for all the highlighter addicts out there! MAKE UP FOR EVER has taken their cult classic highlighter from the Pro Sculpting Duo and released it on its own own! Like many fans of the Pro Sculpting Duo, I found myself running out of the highlight shade before I finished the contour shade. Now, instead of having to buy a whole new duo, you can buy the highlighter separately!

The new Pro Light Fusion is available in the same two shades from the Pro Sculpting Duo, 01 Golden Pink and 02 Golden.  It comes in a 9 gram, mirrored compact and retails for $48 which is a great price for the amount of product you get, not to mention the quality. Oh, and it's also worth noting that this formula is talc-free!

Before I get into my review, let's just take a moment to admire the beauty that is the Pro Light Fusion. Just look at those ripples of rose gold goodness outdoors in natural sunlight!

Now that I've shown you how beautiful it looks in the compact, it's time to see some swatches. The following were taken indoors, with natural lighting. As you can see, it is indeed undetectable unless you layer it on.

MAKE UP FOR EVER's Pro Light Fusion highlighter in Golden Pink is seriously one of the most gorgeous rose gold highlighters I've ever used. It's got the perfect mix of gold and pink to suit light-to-medium complexions regardless of undertone. As you can see below, it suits my light, warm toned complexion very well.

I usually have a hard time pulling off pink highlighters (they end up looking like blush) but since this is pink and gold it works.

The silky, gel-powder feels incredibly good on the skin and it blends like a dream. You can apply it with a light hand for a subtle radiance or layer it on for that glazed donut look. Even when applied heavy-handed, it still looks good and it doesn't cake up.

Another very important thing to note is that it sits on top of pores and reflects light away from them. There is literally nothing worse than having your highlighter sink into your pores, drawing attention to them..

The only downside to the Pro Light Fusion is that it doesn't wear for that long if it's not set with a setting spray. Without a setting spray, I only got a few hours of wear. If you're the type of person who can't be bothered with touching up your makeup, I highly recommend you seal it with a setting spray. Otherwise your glow will start to fade throughout the day.

Verdict? Buy it! This highlighter is absolutely stunning and is so incredibly versatile. Whether you like to shine bright like a diamond or prefer that lit from within glow, this luminizer will deliver the results you desire. Just remember to set it with a setting spray to make that ethereal glow last!

MAKE UP FOR EVER's Pro Light Fusion is available in two shades, both in store and online at Sephora and retails for $48 CAD.
