I remember when I first found out about Girl Meets Pearl. Us Adelaide Benebabes were sitting in a hotel cross pub, sharing tons of pizza while Sarah H tried balancing her laptop on her knee and the corner of the table, showing us new product after new product. We were floored. Introduced to us as "That Gal's best friend", Girl Meets Pearl is a shimmering liquid pearl for your face. Clothed in the same stuff as her bestie, only shinier, this golden pink highlighter gives you a dewy glow. It's like Moon Beam and That Gal had a baby and this is it.
I can't look at the packaging without thinking of smooshing Nutella/peanut butter between crackers to make worms. Am I the only one?I'd recommend only a few clicks if you're looking to use this on your face. It does have a decent amount of shimmer so too much and you're going to look like you got punched in the face by Edward Cullen, but if you're wearing it under makeup of course the shimmer is going to be dulled down a bit. More clicks for smoothing on the decollete though, it's AMAZING along the collarbone. If you're on the road and you left your Bathina Take A Picture It Lasts Longer behind, you can improvise with this and slather your limbs in this too, but obviously it will NOT last long if you use it like that!
The biggest downside I can think of straight off the bat is it takes a LOT of clicking to get the product flowing, but we were warned at the meeting and it's our duty to warn you. So, you're warned. Is it a must have? If you have That Gal and Moon Beam, it's safe to say you can skip this. But if you're after a nice shimmery primer, this isn't a bad bet.
Girl Meets Pearl retails for AUD$53 and arrives on counter September 8th.
