    The Luminizer Indeed!

    I originally received a sample of this highlighter in an Ipsy Glam Bag and immediately fell in love with it. I'm now on my 2nd purchased one and this is one of the best on the market. I use it mainly as a eye shadow base since it is the ideal shade of champagne. It has a nice shimmer to it but doesn't look cake-y. It's a little on the pricey side but it comes in a huge pan so it will last for a while. This product is in my Beauty Hall of Fame collection!

    Beautiful highlighter

    This product is such a beautiful champagne shade, looks flawless on the skin and really pops in any photos. It has lasted me such a long time too despite using it a lot

    The best highlighter

    omg, this highlighter is just perfect. It's been my ride-or-die for years now and I still haven't tried anything better. The color is just perfect for light to medium skin tones, it looks so smooth and buttery on the skin. But keep in mind, it's not subtle whatsoever haha.

    Best golden (champagne shade) highlighter

    One swatch of this holy grail highlighter and you would understand why it is a mass-favourite beauty product. The highlighter is highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. It's staying power is 6 to 8 hours (depending upon the weather, it can last longer in winters). The champagne-coloured highlighter defuses light and looks dreamy under a flash light. It is perfect for special occasions.

    Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!

    This is the only highlight I’ve ever hit pan on! It is perfect for my pale skin and gives a beautiful glowing highlight without being glittery. Love it.

    One of the best

    This is one of the best highlighters I've ever owned! I love the colour, and I love that you can build it up to be more intense if the first swipe isn't "blinding" enough for you. The only downside is I can't find this in stores in Canada anymore!

    Holy Grail?

    This is a TRULY beautiful highlighter. It blends very well and looks about as natural as you could expect from a stunning highlight. It's relatively inexpensive for a high-end product with a large pan and mirror. The consistency of the product is great, it's not chalky so that you have fall out, but not so buttery that you have difficulty getting it up on your brush. It's great for a quick, easy swipe of light. My only qualm with it is that its golden undertone isn't the most flattering for me, personally. I took a few points off because there are much cheaper dupes out there - but I'm not sure that is fair of me, this is truly an amazing highlighter that deserves a higher ranking.

    You Glow girl!

    I’m a huge highlighter fan and I love to look my best whenever I leave my house! This brand really lives up to its name it really is “the balm”!! This highlighter is very pigmented and the colours are beautiful, it also lasts all day and hardly do I ever need to reapply. The price is a little steep but it’s totaly worth it I think I paid $23.00 plus tax at Sephora and it last me a couple months. I would definitely recommend this to everyone who loves a good highlighter and The Balm cosmetics offers a lot of other great products!

    Glow Fo' Sho! Would recommend.

    I bought this product for the first time at a Rexall pharmacy when I was 19.. It was my first high-end drugstore product. I was instantly amazed at how creamy it was, and it soon became my everyday highlighter. I have since bought a second one and am still using that, even though it has been broken, repressed, and broken again. Even as a busted power the glow it gives off is astronomical, and the colour and formula are gorgeous. I know that when I hit pan I will certainly be buying again!

    One of my favourite highlighters !

    I personally don’t like a really shiny highlighter all of the time (for everyday wear). This highlighter is perfect for everyday use, just enough to highlight your features but not make you look too shiny.
    You get a good amount for the price and it lasts all day long! I really love the packaging also, it’s super cute!
    I’d give it a try for sure if you haven’t already!
