Worth the hype? The Balm Loumanizer's

                             

                             


                             

                             

I have been an advocate of The Balm's Maryloumanizer for THE longest time. I pick this product over my MAC MSF's because it looks more intense and dewy. The Maryloumanizer is a champagne highlight with finely milled gold shimmer running throughout it which looks stunning when the light catches it! When I was sent this product back in May I instantly fell in love with it. 

Forward 6 months and my love for the Maryloumanizer is still strong, so I thought I would purchase her sister the Cindyloumanizer. 

You can see from the swatch, pictured above, that this highlighter is a peachy-pink highlighter with gold reflex. Whilst I love this shade, it does not work as a highlighter for my skin tone. I think this highlighter would be gorgeous on tanned skin. HOWEVER, this blush looks really pretty on fair complexions if you lightly apply it to the cheeks as a blush/highlight combo!! 

Overall, I would and do recommend these to everyone. Whilst these can be found at the drugstore, the do retail for £17.50 which I personally find really reasonable for the quality however, if you are looking for affordable, drugstore products, this is not the one for you.
