Review | BEST HIGHLIGHTER EVER Mecca Lit from Within ♥


Hi everyone!! So before these couple of months, I never really invested in any highlighters because I have quite oily skin so I didn't really like adding more shine to my already shiny face. However, recently, I've just started loving wearing heavy blush and contour with a bit of highlight. The only one I used to own was the Benefit High Beam which is a liquid highlighter with a pinkish undertone and I was quite content with that. However, after hearing about all the hypes about the Mecca Cosmetica Enlightened Lit from Within Highligher, i decided to buy it and give it ago. And omg let me tell you, this has quickly become my favourite product EVER. It's super amazing and the best highlighter I've tried so far! (I don't own many highlighters but I've tried most in stores including Stila, Hourglass, NARS etc. and this one beats them all!)

So if you haven't already heard of this highlighter, let me tell you a bit about it before I go into the review.
Last year, Mecca released this highlighter as a limited edition product and it was greatly loved by everyone so they decided to bring it back once again as part of the Mecca 20 birthday line. However, it soon sold out super quickly in stores and when I say quickly it was actually so quick I had to go to another store to find one because it was sold out at my own store. Even at the other store, the lady had to go into the backroom and search for the last one *O* 

Anyways, so finally I got my hands on this baby and then now, it is actually part of the permanant Mecca Cosmetica line because it's such a popular and loved product. So if you haven't tried this, don't forget to go into stores and try it out! You'll DEFINITELY love it! 



Brand: Mecca Cosmetica 
Name: Enlightened Lit from Within Powder Highlighter 
Price: $48 
Weight: - 
Shade: -
Where to buy: Mecca
Description: Beauty comes from within, this we know, but it really helps to have a helping hand from our enlightened highlighting powder for a dose of instant radiance. The warm, face-flattering, golden-neutral shade suits every complexion while the ultra-fine pigments instantly revive lacklustre skin, giving you a more visibly radiant complexion.





First of all, can we talk about the packaging?!? I'm really loving the rose gold designs of the Mecca Cosmetica range and this is one of them. The powder highlighter is in a nice compact that you can open and close with a handy mirror inside which mades it easy to travel with and to touch up. You get quite a generous amount of product inside that will probably last quite a long time so it's definitely worth the $48 that you are paying. 

The highlighter, as mentioned in the description, is a golden-neutral shade that is univeral across all skin colours and will look amazing on everyone! Before this I used to use the Benefit High beam and because that was a pink toned highlighter I noticed that it didn't really suit people with deeper skin tones so I'm really glad that this one works on light and dark skin tones. 

The powder itself is super pigmented and let me warn you, a little goes A LONG WAY. So just take a little bit of product and apply it to your cheekbones, cupids bow, brow bone etc and It looks really amazing in combination with blush and a bit of bronzer. It's really great to really illuminate your face without making you look 'oily'. I like to use my fingers to apply my highlighter but it is recommended that you use a fan brush to pick up even amounts of products to apply onto the cheekbones.

I really love the rose gold packaging of this powder highlighter and how it comes with a handy mirror inside. It's also nice and sleek so easy to carry around in bag or when travelling. 

Price: ♥ ♥ ♥ / 5 

Price wise, this highlighter is actually quite comparable to the prices of other brands like Stila, Too Faced and Urban Decay. But I think it is quite a reasonable price point seeing as you get a lot of product and use out of the one compact that could last you a long time too. 

Performance: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ / 5 

A b s o l u t e l y A m a z i n g!! Everyone needs to get their hands on this highlighter. It's super pigmented for a powder and gives your cheeks the nicest glow EVER (no kidding my mum could see my highlight standing metres away from me - she was like why's your cheek so shiny today hahahaha). 

Pros: 
- Super pigmented 
- Long wearing 
- Sleek and gorgeous rose gold packaging 
- Handy mirror inside great for travel 
- Little goes a long way 
- Gorgeous golden neutral shade that suits every skin tone 

Cons 
- NONE

  1. Would you be able to suggest a dupe for this? We don't have mecca in my country.
