And now, Drunk Elephant is back with a highly anticipated new *drop*: the B-Goldi™ Bright Drops! A golden addition to their lineup of skincare-makeup hybrids, you might be wondering how this launch could possibly capture the same magic as the original. Spoiler alert: it might just be even better!
To find out everything you need to know about this new launch, we enlisted MECCA Beauty Board member and Makeup Education Manager Hannah Daniels to apply the B-Goldi™ drops on four MECCA team members of varying skin tones and types. Want to know what it looks like, how it benefits your skin and our expert's application tips for a flawless glow? Just scroll down...

First, lets start with the skincare benefits. B-Goldi™ promises to deliver a smoother, more radiant complexion – long after the glow fades! That's thanks to the supercharged skincare ingredients swiped on with every drop. Think: 5 percent niacinamide to bolster your skin barrier and even out tone, diglucosyl gallic acid and mulberry extract to soothe and brighten, plus squalane and marula oils to moisturise and add a nourishing glow.
Compared to Drunk Elephant's other serums, the new launch takes out the win for Hannah when it comes to adaptability: “I think B-Goldi™ is the most versatile of the three! I would use D-Bronzi™ Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops underneath my complexion products if I wanted to balance colour or give additional warmth, and I would focus O-Bloos™ Rosi Drops just on the cheeks as a blush. In contrast, I think B-Goldi™ can really be used in any way – under makeup, mixed into your base products or placed like a highlighter on top of your makeup.”

“You can mix it with other products, use it on its own or just have fun with it. It truly is mistake-proof!”

To take it to the next level and achieve the kind of reflective glow seen on Team MECCA's cheeks, Hannah recommends "layering a little on the highest point of the cheek, just above the tail of the brow and on the cupid’s bow – basically wherever you would normally use highlighter.” Bonus tip: Hannah used a brush here to lightly stipple the product into our cheeks, but feel free to use your fingers, too.
But don't stop there! “Take it across your décolletage and shoulders, especially as the weather warms up. And remember to pair it with a liquid blush for an even more radiant finish.”

It's this kind of customisation that makes these drops perfect for everyone, Hannah says: “Because it can be used in so many different ways, this can really work on all skin types and tones (yes, oily included!). You can mix it with other products, use it on its own or just have fun with it. It truly is mistake-proof!”
