disappointed with shroom

I am so not happy with shroom, thought it would make a great highlighter, but i have to say it doesn't do much for me.

I hardly see it, actually all I see is a slight sheen and the colour totally disappears into my skin. It's probably too close to my NC25/30 skin tone to actually show.

Have a look at this picture.

first swatch MAC's Shroom, 2nd is Barry M's Dazzle Dust in NO 27.
I think I will return shroom.
Do you have any recommendation? The colour I am looking for ought to be lighter than shroom...more of an white to off-white colour, with slight sheen or shimmer to it, no frost finish tho.


  1. SO glad i didnt get that, i have and inglot eyeshadow that is a bit more creamy looking with shimmer which i use a lot as a highlighter but my fave one from MAC is white frost, but that will prob 2 shimmery for you.

  2. Hmm, maybe I'll check out white frost anyway! Preferably on my skin first.
    I really dont get what all the hype is about (regarding shroom)...maybe it works better for darker skin tones?
    I wish I could get Inglot here, I've heard so many good things about them.

  3. im not happy with shroom either. it doesnt show up, unless i put a million of it :P i'd suggest dazzlelight, crystal avalance or blanc type, blanc type is probably what you are looking for. :)

  4. thanks, i will check out blanc type! :)

  5. I'm not a fan of Shroom myself. My favorite highlighter is Blanc Type. I've heard great things about Nylon and Dazzlelight too though.

  6. Nylon and Mylar are my 2 favorite highlighters. Or even vanilla pigment. Shroom isn't my favorite either so I don't know what the hype is either. I don't feel like putting loads of an eyeshadow on for pigmentation yah know? lol

  7. It's a complete waste to pile on so much eye shadow, and even piling it on, I just can't see it. LOL

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions!

    I will check out: dazzlelight, crystal avalance, blanc type, nylon and mylar!!

  8. Update: The MA did not exchange shroom. she said it was store policy that they can't exchange used products.
