Pat McGrath Golden Nectar Divine Glow Highlighter Review & Swatches

Golden Nectar Pat McGrath Golden Nectar Divine Glow HighlighterPat McGrath Golden Nectar Divine Glow Highlighter ($48.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium peach with a slightly darker peach base paired with a shiny, reflective finish that was metallic but not prone to emphasizing my skin’s natural texture.

What do you like about makeup brushes? What don't you like?
