Turn On Your Bright Lights: Part 2
Day 28: MAC Lightful Charged Essence Serum
I am very late to any kind of gushing over MAC's Lightful skin care line. MAC Lightful was an Asian exclusive that started appearing on the US shores in 2009. Clearly, I was in some kind of cave in 2009. I do not remember any whispers or shouts concerning the release. I stumbled across a treasure trove of product at my local MAC free standing store. I purchased the toner and this serum under the guidance of my SA.
The serum's texture is odd. It feels slippery and slightly clammy. It leaves you with the impression that you might have grabbed your hair gel instead of your skin care treatment. This was unnerving. Just one dab or dollop from the silver pump and it covers the entire face. It dries quickly and leaves the skin feeling tacky. I ignored this and applied my moisturizer over the serum. This is when the "magic happened".
The serum appeared to reach out and grab the moisturizer.
It took over 30 minutes for my moisturizer to settle before I applied my foundation. My skin was hydrated to the point of dewiness.
I also tested this serum over my primer. Then I applied my foundation. Crazy results. My foundation is flawless. No wear or tear after 8 hour work day. No slipping issues.
MAC Lightful serum is available online at http://www.maccosmetics.com/
It retails for $40.
