The New Glowy Duo | Make Up For Ever Water Blend + Marc Jacobs Dew Drops

I'm constantly on the lookout for products that will give me super dewy skin. I feel like I always just look so dull, so even a small amount of faux radiance makes a world of difference. I had been wanting to try the Make Up For Ever Water Blend Foundation since it came out, and I finally took the plunge when I found my shade in stock at Sephora. And as I'm such a fan of the Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer, I just had to jump at the chance to order their new Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter when it was released.

The Make Up For Ever Water Blend Foundation is a water-thin foundation (as the name suggests) that gives a beautiful skin-like finish. It's incredibly sheer coverage, but it helps to even out the skin. It really feels like you have nothing on your skin. It just smooths everything out and is truly a "my skin but better" product. I like applying it with fingers best, and once blended it leaves such a healthy look to the skin. It reminds me a lot of the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint - so if you can't get your hands on Glossier right now, I'd give this a try.

I've been super into cream and liquid highlighters lately, so the Marc Jacobs Dewdrops Highlighter was a welcome addition. It's a super lovely cooling gel formula. It's beautifully pigmented but sheers out so easily. It's a lovely warm golden peach shade - usually I can't do golden shades, but this one still works. A small dot blended over the cheekbones with fingers or a Beautyblender adds a golden highlight that adds so much life to the face. It also mixes into foundations seamlessly, giving you a radiant warm sheen that makes it look like you just came back from vacation. A small amount mixed with the Water Blend Foundation is absolutely beautiful. It really amps up the dewiness without being too "discoball." I can't wait to start mixing it with more products to see how I like it best, but for now, it's a beautiful addition to the Water Blend.

Have you tried either of these?
