[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I think every single blogger or YouTuber I regularly read or watch has tried and reviewed theBalm Luminizer highlighter and what was actually more intriguing – almost all of them love it and use everyday. After seeing it literally everywhere, I felt like it was haunting me so I finally decided to purchase one myself and review it.
To be totally honest with you, I already own 3 highlighters but I barely use them. I might actually review the other ones very soon or do a comparison post about all of them, including theBalm.
The day I received this theBalm Luminizer, I first applied it on my hand to check the strength of pigmentation and exact shade on the skin. I must admit, it is highly pigmented so you definitely don’t need 5 layers of this product in order to visibly highlight your face.
I applied the luminizer on my face (just above the bronzer) using eyeshadow brush and I then spread it using fan brush – it is not any sort of trick I’m doing, I just don’t have a proper highlighting brush yet so if you own one and are really happy with it, please let me know in the comments!
The application itself was really easy, I didn’t have any problems with blending or with applying it evenly. I also applied it above my lips, brows and a bit above brow arch.
theBalm Luminizer reflects the light (even artificial one!) really beautifully giving our face this radiant and healthy look. I was also surprised, it managed to stay on my face for the whole day because most of the times – this might sound funny now – I use underground trains to commute and there is no A/C so it gets really hot on the trains some days – that’s when my make-up, somehow, disappears from my face.. but this highlighter survived the underground-heat and I could still see my cheeks reflecting the light after I got home in the evening.
Since the application is so easy and the product gives long-lasting result, I think I might actually start using this luminizer more often.
Last, but not least, I wanted to add that theBalm products are not tested on animals and are free from paraben.
