SS17’s Best Illuminator?

Spring has sprung. In the beauty world that means switching out our burgundy’s for shades of peach and our matte finishes for more natural, dewy looks.

This season the naturally sun kissed finish you’re looking for can be even more easily obtained with Marc Jacobs New Coconut Collection. This collection includes a primer, setting mist, gel highlighter, and bronzer (+ brush, sold separately)

I was lucky enough to be sent the Beauty Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in the shade Dew You? a nice peachy-gold. Talking about this product doesn’t do it any justice, check out the pictures below for yourself:

IMG_5460I smeared it so you guys can get a look at the color, it reminds me of a Champagne, but doesn’t come off as ashy at all.

Let’s get into this review!

First off: packaging! It’s black and white giving off a very minimalist feel. The product actually comes in a “half-pill” shaped glass that includes a pump. I was kind of disappointed because I was totally expecting a dropper, but then kind of relieved it wasn’t after getting a feel for the product, like the dropper would have been be a total mess. I’m not sure if it is the shade (Dew You?), but the product color is very visible through the frosted glass. I would even say identical, both in the glass and out.

Since this is going right on your face, the smell is something that can make or break a product, I mean your nose is right there. Luckily this product gives off the sweet smell of vacation, a relief to me because personally I hate the way coconuts smell LOL.

The consistency is comparable to that of a primer. So when I decided to add this product to my makeup routine, I put it on right after my primer and before my foundation. As you can see from the pictures it does come off a bit shimmery. But believe me when I say the last thing people will be saying is “What’s that on your face?” This product literally gives your face the perfect glow. When I put it on I instantly looked more alive. And the best part is that you’ll have this same radiance regardless if you decide to put foundation on or not.

This product retails at $44  and is currently out of stock on and (that alone should tell you how banging this product is!). But because I truly care for my readers, I went ahead and did a little more digging and found that it is still available online through Neiman Marcus. Get it before its gone! I can promise you that I will be using mine until its the bottle’s empty!






I received this product as a gift for free from Influenster & Marc Jacobs Beauty, but all opinions are my own.


One thought on “SS17’s Best Illuminator?

  1. Oooooh this looks so gorgeous!!! I love that it’s shimmery and as you said, not too glittery! I always find that there are so many highlighters that look pretty in the bottle/pan and then when you try it on…. it just looks like you covered yourself in glitter and it just isn’t cute haha!
