I originally bought Honeymoon because it looked like a dupe for a limited edition MAC product that I can't remember the name of now. It turned out not to be a dupe, and not to work out for me as a blush, but this turned out to be one of my favorite highlighters!
Honeymoon is a shimmery peachy-pink blush with lavender veining. As a blush, this honestly does nothing. A little shimmer shows up, but that's about it. The packaging says to use this blush wet for a more dramatic look, but even wet, this doesn't do much as a blush.But this is a wonderful cheekbone highlighter! One sweep of this stuff gives a nice glow without being too over the top. This is definitely shimmery, but there are no big pieces of glitter or anything to make this look too obvious or tacky. The consistency of this is nice and smooth, not too powdery or chalky. Many people think highlighting is unnecessary, but I can always tell when I've forgotten to wear this. It really brightens up your face and gives you a beautiful glow all day long. I've also used this on my eyes in a pinch, both as a browbone highlighter and as a neutral, shimmery shade to blend out other colors. Both times it worked out great!
My HG highlighter is Benefit High Beam, which is a little more dramatic than this and a lot more expensive. I use Honeymoon as a daily highlighter and save High Beam for special occasions. I will totally repurchase if I ever run out -- I've been using this daily for months and I've hardly made a dent! If High Beam is too intense or too expensive for you, go to Wal-Mart and try this out.
This is my #1 go to blush =] it works perfectly on my fair skin. Even if I use...let's say Nars Orgasm I still use Honeymoon over top as a highlight. I adore this blush so much that I actually have a few backups just incase they remove the Hard Candy line from my local Walmart...again 0.o
This was an impulse buy...I ran into Wal Mart to buy that Not Your Mother's Girl Powder...and this caught my eye. It is a beautiful peachy pink color, with violet veins. Sooo gorgeous! It's very shimmery, and works great as a highlighter or blush on my fair skin. While $9 is a little steep for a drugstore brand, I definitely think this is a find.
For me this is waaaay to shimmery to be used as a blush.Its a pretty color in the pan and you get alot of product (8g) it makes me look way to shiny. I find that the shimmer migrates to other areas of your face making you look like a 6 year old playing pretend in mom makeup drawer.
If you like shimmery blushes you will love this.
I know this is marketed as a blush, but I like to use it as a highlighter because as a blush, it doesn't show up on a NC30 skintone. I love the peachy pink colour and it has nice fine shimmer, NOT glittery. It creates an overall soft sheen to my cheeks; not harsh or frosty like I expected it to be. One thing I noticed is that it isn't pressed very well. It can be a little powdery when you sweep your brush over the product, wasting it. I recommend it for medium skintones as a highlight!
Honeymoon is a pretty peachy color with light pink veining. It is very shimmery (not glittery!), and pretty sheer. It's a great highlighter for above your cheekbones and around your temples and creates a very pretty, glowy look. I don't think its pigmented enough to be considered a blush, though. Can be used either wet or dry, though I have only used it dry so far. The bottom says 'Apply dry for a soft & delicate look. Use wet for intense, dramatic color.' The packaging is a cute white compact with silver on the top edges and black etching that says Hard Candy with some swirley designs. The packaging is easy to open, fairly compact, and sturdy. Retails for about $7 - $8 at WalMart - fairly cheap. The product kind of reminds me of MAC mineralize skinfinishes but less glittery. There are two main things I don't like about the product: its pretty sheer and unpigmented, and it has mineral oil in it. Even though it has mineral oil in it I have not broken out from using it so far, and I have pretty sensitive skin.
I love this blush. It doesn't have a lot of color pay off, but it is definitely pretty, shimmery, and adds a glow. Packaging is really cute too.
As many have mentioned, as blush it gets 1 star but as a highligher, I give it 4 stars. I tried it on after purchasing it and it didn't show up at all. But, a few of friends wanted to know what highlighter I was using because it was really pretty. So, that's pretty much what I used this for. If you pair it with a peachy blush, it is simply to die for, ladies.
I have very fair skin , Very light .
& I really liked this product , It was perfect , Very shimmery !
Mine is almost gone): So I have to buy another very soon !
I recomend this one for light skin & I wiilll be buying another one no doubt !
On my second container of this, goes well with my light colored skin. this is a peach color with violet undertones, works well with my cool, winter toned skin. I use this as a highliter on my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose. would not consider this a "blush", it adds more of a "glow" than a shimmer stripe.. hard to explain, but I love it !
