Go Buy Now: Mai Couture Blush & Highlighter Papers

by Britt Aboutaleb

I might be a beauty editor, but I don’t carry a lot of product with me. I like to carry a small bag and frankly, makeup is heavy. But you know what’s not heavy? Blotting papers. Mai Couture’s cleverly taken the concept of blotting papers—thin sheets, sleek booklet—and turned them into both blush and highlighter.

Inside their little gold booklets, you’ll find various shades of pink and bronze on super thin paper that, when swept across your cheekbones, delivers just a flush of color or radiance. (The harder you press, the more color you get—it’s easily buildable.) We’re partial to the Montecito Blush ($17) and Crystal Cove Highlighter ($28), but if you want to try a few you’re in luck; they sell a variety pack!
