An ode to glow - Luster Drops

So today, I'm going to be telling you about my luscious friend in a little bottle.
MAC's Lusture Drops in Sun Rush.
I have oily skin, and tend to look naturally glowy - er, oily. But once you've powdered and contoured, a lot of the oilyness is replaced with semi matte skin.
Enter highlighters.
I don't like powder highlighters much, as I find they're a bit too white/silver for me? Or maybe I'm looking in all the wrong places.
I first came across these luster drops in a youtube video, not sure which one, I think it was Beautycrush? She was talking about Pink Rebel, which is the other shade. 

MAC says "A Bronzer that applies like liquid sun, Water-based, beautifully smooth to apply with added pearlized luster. Provides sheer, natureal-looking highlights with a luminous, shimmery finish."

Sun Rush is decribed as a "peachy bronze with gold pearl".

To me, it just looks like liquid gold.
It doesn't really look like I've thrown a bunch of highlighter on my face, instead it catches the light in just the right way, giving my face a nice natural looking sheen and well, glow.
I use it on the tops of my cheekbones, under my eyebrow and in my tear duct area. 
It can also be mixed with your foundation, if you prefer.
It's just so beautiful. 

Now, I am woefully unaware of how much it costs here, because it was a gift from my parents when they came back from Europe last year, but I shall try and find out. 
All in all, I really think its an under hyped highlighter.

So tell me, would you purchase this?
