This product used to be one of my everyday go-to highlighters, as it gives such a beautiful almost wet-look sheen to the skin. The color of this is just perfect for my fair skin, and it doesn't leave any streaks once my face hit the light in a different angle. I also find that this highlighter doesn't emphasize any pores or texture that I may have on my face, and that it stays put well into the day. However, since I've started using MAC's Soft and Gentle highlighter, I haven't been reaching for this as often. I still highly recommend this though, for anyone wanting to try this. It's the bomb!29 days ago
This is one of the OG HG (original holy grail) highlighters for most makeup enthusiasts such as myself! It's the perfect champagne highlight that is complementary to most skin tones. It's subte to blinding and looks very smooth on the skin, definitel not powdery. This is one of the top five highlighters that are inexpensive but very beautiful3 months ago
This is one of the products that The Balm is definitely known for! If you want a highlight that is blinding then this is definitely for you. One swatch & you'll see how smooth it glides on. It's kinda glittery so if you're into those subtle, "natural" dewy looks than maybe this isn't for you. Definitely worth your money though because this will last a long time given its pigmentation.3 months ago
I personally use this shade the most from the three lou-manizers. On nights where I want to use a highlighter to pop, I think this is perfect but I even for everyday makeup and a lighter hand, this highlighter can be used for a natural glow too. I feel like it's such a multipurpose product and I do reach for this everyday. Really worth your money in my opinion and it lasts really long3 months ago
This is THE best highlighter ever. It complements my fair skin with yellow undertones. One light swipe and it gives you enough shimmer on your target areas. I love using this whether I'm going for a simple daily make up or total full on glam mode. Since a little goes a long way, this product will last a long long time. This doubles as an eyeshadow as well. Been using this for 3 years now and will keep repurchasing (even with tons of new highlighters popping up every now and then).3 months ago
