Turn On Your Bright Lights: Part 1
I have coveted this skincare series from MAC for quite a while. I spotted it ions ago in an Asian cosmetic magazine. So imagine my surprise, when I spotted Lightful at my MAC free standing store in Cleveland. I was chatting about dazzleglasses when my eye spotted familiar looking silver canisters and jars. I blurted out " Hot Damn...Lightful" and made a mad dash to the display. The SA, Jen, is used to my ADD and beauty enthusiasm. She was my old MAC SA from Youngstown. This release flew under my beauty radar. I do not remember getting this press release in 2009. Because if I did....I would have gushed all summer long.
Lightful is beyond MAGNIFICENT. It is a whitening product. I know there are justified arguments about this trend in skincare. However, I am a pale girl that actually would like to be more ghost-like. I covet the skin of Dita Von Teese and MUA's Nova Baby. I want to wear Nars Snow powder.
Lightful's Foaming Creme Cleanser is a thick, mousse-like, slightly pearlized cream. It puts you in the mind of La Creme Yogurt Vanilla Mousse. The fragrance is very fresh-like. You will only need a dime size amount of product. Anything more is truly excessive and a waste of the product. It leaves the skin refreshed and slightly tighter. The key selling point to this series is how it makes your skin feel. The softness is unparalleled. It will make you shudder.
I did not purchase the whole Lightful line so I can not attest to it's ultimate goal as a skin lightener. I can agree that your skin will feel incredible, your complexion will improve in tone and brightness and skin irritations will be held at bay.
It is a hidden gem in the MAC skincare line.
It is 100% worthy of lemming status and everyone needs to try it.
The availability appears to be in MAC free standing stores, the MAC and MAC Pro website and if you are lucky... at the CCO. I purchased this product at the Aurora Farms CCO for $19.25.
The regular price is $24.
If you have tried any of these products let us know in the comments.
Disclosure: I purchased this cleanser at a CCO store.
