I was just going to suggest the same two. LOVE them! Since MAC Warmed was a LE item...check out some Nars Blushes. They have a beautiful shimmer to them.

I'm a cheek-highlighting addict hahaha! I have way too many highlighters but these are my favourite:

BB Shimmerbrick in Apricot
BB Shimmerbrick in Gold
Petticoat MSF
Pearl Blossom bp
Alpha Girl bp - also wear as a blush
Soft Flame loose bp - also wear as a blush
Tenderdusk loose bp
Sunspill loose bp - also wear as a blush
Vanilla p/m
Pink Opal p/m

I'm an NW30 for reference

No problem! It just sits in my drawer collecting dust as i've never used it on my eyes and once i just thought let me try as a cheek highlight

I would love to add material gold from metal urge into the list as well. I wasn't going to buy it but when i saw it i instantly thought it's good as a highlight.

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

OooO Interesting thread....

ok so I'm loving...

1. Mac Other Worldly Blush (LE) It's such a beautiful blush and I love the fact that it has no glitter specks either. I wished it was permanent.
2. Any Mac MSFs
3. Mac MSF Duo - Highlight Side

Now after reading this thread...I want to try out those BB Shimmerbricks. YAY!

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

I would agree about Nars Albatross...as well as MAC MSF gold deposit.

Dont! IMO, they are a bit chalky for anyone over NC40.

But i havent used the bronze and copper one. But they also dont sit very well on the skin and can go a bit patchy.

When I first started trying to achieve the look I used Bronze and Improper Copper.

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

I'm NC30 Chinese skin, and I use BB Shimmerbrick in Copper Diamond, Bronze, and Rose. lately I've picked up Brownie and Peony and I'm not sure how well that'll work out...

But I will also probably pick up the MSF duos for contouring and use the shimmery side as a highlight. :]

Thanks for this info, I was interested in trying one of these (specifically the copper one). I was going to order it from the website based on the good reviews, but now I'll wait until I can swatch it in person.

Re: What's a great cheekbone Highlight for WOC?

i duno what to call it...
underside of cheek... the hollow area...
it's like contouring with a bronzer only more irridecent in effect... more for night time... need a super light hand to do it... I use the 187 and i smoosh the head of the brush so it's more fan like and not round ( i never shelled out to buy MAC's skunk fan brush so I just improvise... ) does that explanation make any sense? lol... i'm bad with descriptions

HTH

With all this love for NARS Albatross, I went to check out my local NARS counter and he really pushed Copacabana Multiple on me and now I'm all confused
It's almost enough for me to do a NO BUY and stick with my existing Vanilla Pigment & Solar White E/S
