That Summer Glow

That Summer Glow


Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter

Doesn’t that sound like a summer album or summer single? Trying on this highlighter almost felt the same…the instant I spread it on my cheekbones was like that first instant when you hear that summer jam. . .

I received this from Influenster to be reviewed and honestly, I wasn’t all that excited at first. The past few items that I received from Influenster weren’t all that great and ended up going to my ‘Work Makeup’ bag, you know the one.

So I was excited to receive another product but apprehensive as to if I’d actually like it. But can I tell you guys?


NO, I seriously love it. The current highlighters in my arsenal (so you know what I’m dealing with) are currently a Clinique stick, the classic Becca and the RMS luminizer. All great highlighters (the RMS is a definite fave) but there was just something so perfect about this new Marc Jacobs one.

For one thing, a lot goes a long way. NO. A LOT GOES A LONG WAY. I made the mistake of doing a big pump the first time and ended up with way too much product. This spreads easily and the glow, oh the glow. I put it on my cheekbones and on my collarbone and on anywhere I want a little shine. It’s very bronzy, with gold undertones. And the packaging is just gorgeous!!

This has become my go to, number one highlighter. RMS lumizer is a very close second (I wear that on days that I want that no makeup look) but the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops is definitely my go to now. And just in time for summer, perfect for that summer glow.

It currently retails for $44 (but if you’re a VIB, Sephora has 15-20% off right now! Click the picture below to shop it!). And, like I said, a little goes a long way. I can see this lasting over a year or even more. Such a worthwhile buy!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes, however all opinions are my own.

Your Turn

Tell me, if you’re a makeup user, what highlighter do you like and why?

    Oh, that’s one pretty highlighter! Sounds also a worth to try out 🙂 I’ll look into this next time when I’m looking for a highlighter 🙂

  • Denise M

    Sounds like a lovely highlighter although I’ve not come across Marc Jacobs make up over here just his perfumes. I tried the new Smashbox palette at the weekend and really liked that and might buy that one. I’m currently using a NYX highlighter at the moment but I’m not overly impressed with that one.

  • I have an oily skin, should I still invest on highlighters?? Thanks for this post btw!

  • I like the idea of this highlighter, not sure it is right for my skin though. I can definitely see how it would be appealing for others. I wish we had Sephora here.

  • Love30

    I adore a highlighter! I’m currently using revolution. I grabbed it when I was desperate and never looked back! This Marc Jacobs one sounds belrillinat though so will check it out! Ree love30

    I’m not that much into highlighters, however I might try the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops, if you say is so good.

  • Hmmm…I’ll have to try this. I’m a big fan of a liquid highlighter. I usually mix a small drop into my foundation for a great all over glow.

  • Kristen Koehler

    This name of this sounds like what I want to look like and I love coconut. But, I don’t really know what a highlighter is – does it make you glow? Tell me more…

  • T-Nicole Johnson

    I have to try this! It looks like it would give me a really nice highlight. Always looking to try out new ones. Thanks for sharing!

  • Maro Akamatra

  • Sushmita Thakare Jain

    I am not into make up, and haven’t tried any highlighters will share will with my my sister who likes it, and BTW lovely review 🙂

  • Oh nice, I’ve never tried a highlighter before. I might need to try this out!

  • I am a make up user and I just started trying highlighter. I haven’t been using it before but lately I’ve been using it under my eyes I can’t even remember what the brand is

  • Divya Budhraja

    Thanks for sharing these products! I never know what to get when I’m shopping for make-up because I don’t wear it often, so I like to hear what other people think are the best products!

  • Briana Marie

    I have no idea how to use highlighter. Lol. I need to learn.

  • J Shan Trice

    Glad to read a honest review. I rarely read any reviews where people admit that items they received previously the were not fund of. I am glad that you received something that you like and I may try it myself!

  • David Elliott

    That’s great that they have the products available through Sephora. I don’t really use makeup. But my daughter does and she loves Sephora.

  • Deimarys Colon

    I have never used liquid highlighters. I have a few but they are in powder. Definitely checking this out.

  • This post came at the right time because I just discovered highlighter and fell in love. Thanks!

  • Anamika Ojha

    I’ve never tried liquid highlighter but it looks amazing. I’ll check it out! Thanks for the recommendation!
