Pat McGrath Cyber Lotus Pores and skin Fetish Highlighter & Balm Duo ($48.00 for 0.33 oz.) features a sparkly pink highlighter paired with a transparent balm (the identical that’s discovered on all the duos). I’m not an enormous fan of the balm a part of the product, however the highlighter components is better-performing because it isn’t as emollient because the clear balm.

Cyber Lotus (Highlighter)
Cyber Lotus (Highlighter) had a subtly, pink-tinged base with extra noticeable pink and lavender sparkle all through. It appeared shy of glitter-sized sparkle however it was undoubtedly not pearl or smaller in particle dimension. I felt just like the formulation for the highlighter wasn’t as emollient because the balm, which made it simpler to use on prime of basis in addition to naked pores and skin, and it had higher longevity at eight-hours of stable put on. It had sheer to semi-sheer protection however wasn’t that buildable.

Clear (Balm) is clear and has a really balm-like, emollient texture that yields a shiny end when patted on to the pores and skin. For software, it layered simply on my naked pores and skin, however it didn’t raise my basis after I tried it that method. I used to be stunned it didn’t soften away my basis instantly, because it had a variety of slip and by no means dried down, and whereas it wasn’t long-wearing, it lasted for six hours earlier than I seen some patchiness immediately the place I had utilized the balm–it was nearer to eight hours earlier than it began to look apparent at a look (as a substitute of simply close-up). It was best to see the longevity after I tried over complexion merchandise in addition to layered over the balm, as a result of by itself over naked pores and skin, there was no patchiness to be discovered since there was nothing to show patchy! After I wore it over naked pores and skin (by itself), I felt like among the glossiness migrated towards my nostrils however not a lot additional beneath my cheek bone or above it.
