No animal testing! Easy, gorgeous, simple & fresh! The 5 minute face that looks polished - I love it. My favorite look lately is a light foundation, cream blush, sheer wash of cream eyeshadow, swash of mascara & a groomed brow, bright lip, and Mary-Lou Manizer on cheeks, brow bone, Cupid's bow and a swipe down the nose for the finishing glow!

I've never found a powder highlighter that was the right shade for my olive/yellow based but reddish Mediterranean skin.This is sublime! There's no glitter, and my cheeks have a beautiful, dewy glow that makes me look 10 years younger!
The compact is a little tricky to open and I could do without the silly drawing, but it's not excessive, which I like. So much product in there, and you barely need a touch to get a nice glow, so I can't imagine ever running out of this. It would also look gorgeous dusted on collar bones, tops of shoulders, fronts of thighs for a summer eve out.

I'm very excited about finding this gem!

This is my holy grail highlighter! I absolutely love it. The colour is not glittery and gives a perfect sheen on your skin even only using a little bit.

I am very fair skinned and was worried that it might be too pale for my skin tone but it applies lovely and really brightens up your face. It is finely milled and so easy to apply as well.

As for the packaging it is great too.The tub is sturdy and doesn't feel plasticity or cheap. It also comes with a little mirror which I don't really use but it could be helpful if you were taking it places.

I only have one small dislike about this product which is that my highlighter pan is not actually attached to the compact and it nearly fell out when I first opened it. Since then I have been careful when opening it so it doesn't fall out but other than that the product is perfect.

This is the highlighter I always reach for. It's versatile for when you want a subtle glow or to go all out. I do so by changing the size and density of the brushes I use it with. It doesn't have chunky sparkles and it's just a beautiful champagne shade that works for the face and eyes. Not huge on theBalm's packaging but the product itself is a must-try.

This is a beautiful highlighter, not glittery which I love! The cute packaging of the brand is always a plus too. If u want a highlighter that isn't glittery and adds a very nice glow to skin,this is a great one!

First of all the package this product comes in is ADORABLE. It's in a well made and very cute compact with a mirror. It's a very nice highlighter, champagne colored, finely milled and very pigmented. I have to be very careful with this or it looks overdone. I actually look better in liquid highlighter but went thru several that didn't show up or contain glitter. I'm planning to get Becca shimmering skin perfecter in moonstone. It's perfect and the tester I used gave me a noticeable but natural glow. This is not as natural looking as that but can be very beautiful if used with a light hand. I love it all in all and wear it every day on the cheekbones, which are naturally very defined and high, (I already look like I contour) and on the bridge of the nose, cupids bow, etc... Looks great on inner corner of the eyes. I highly recommend this product!

Honestly how could anybody give a bad review on this product?! First of all the packaging is to die for! So adorable, I love the cute themes that thebalm comes up with. This highlighter is SO pigmented and SO beautiful. And for me finding the right highlighter is hard I am very pale and some highlighters just don't show up well on me, it often looks like I'm wearing just craft glitter on my face instead of that subtle color with shimmer that a highlight is supposed to be. But this highlighter looks perfect on me! It gives me that soft glow, and is very buildable. I read a review that said it doesn't give you a soft subtle glow that it's too dramatic. I disagree, use a fan brush and lightly dab in this product and there you go very subtle. Anyways I definitely say that every true makeup lover should own this product.

I really like this highlighter! It's definitely not a settle or sheer highlighter by any means, but that doesn't mean it doesn't look great. I don't use this on my cheek bones for everyday use, however I really like dabbing some on my finger and apply it on the brow bone, over the upper lip and on the tip of the nose. And for parties I could wear this on my cheek bones too! Really cute packaging, stays on the skin for a long time and it's just a great product.

Super pigmented, shimmery, easy to blend, basically everything I was looking for in a highlighter! I read lots of reviews on this stuff and was set on my decision to get it, although the price is kinda steep. I use a small amount on the highlight areas of the face (nose, cupids bow,etc.)to avoid looking too shiny, but I'm not shy when it comes to my cheekbones. This really puts the cherry on top of my contour... also I love the 'mugshot' on the front, so cute and a great marketing strategy :)
