As you all know, highlighter is all the craze right now. Especially with summer on its way a “natural” glowy look is what we seek to attain.
I have started quite the collection of highlighters from high end to low and I can tell you that this one is by far the best when it comes down to price, quantity and product pay off.
The Balm Cosmetics is a highstreet brand carried in stores like superdrug, in the UK. They have three shades of highlighters. By popular choice I picked upMary Lou. It is made up of fine gold specs in a pressed powder compact.
Price: £17.50, compared to other brands the price is quite affordable placing it smack bang in the middle of the spectrum.
Quantity: 8.5g, this is plenty of product to last you for months if you are a regular user, maybe even years. The expiration period is 12months.
Application: it’s best applied with a feathered brush or a tapered blending brush. Light brush strokes is all that its required. I apply it on my cheekbones, temple, eyebrow bone and down the bridge of my nose. For even better pay off it should be applied when the foundation is still wet/sticky for the powder to adhere.
Durability: When applied with a good base it can last me all day. A small amount of this product can go a long way so it’s best to build up the product rather than slapping it all on at once.
Suitable for: It definitely suits anyone with my skin tone, aha! From my perspective the gold compliments every skin warm skin tone.
Hope this helps! Which one is your favourite highlighter?
