I don't understand what others are seeing? I always agree with Temptalia so I'm especially baffled with her awarding it glowing scores, as well as the over 80% rating here. To me, this isn't even a glowy blusher let alone a highlighter. It's a very dull glow and it's terribly chalky powdery (like most of thebalm stuff I've tried if not all, it kicks up tons of …Read more

I really do not care much for Mary-Lou, but Cindy-Lou is gorgeous on me. I am quite fair, but the peachy glow this gives is perfect on my warm skin. I was probably sucked in by the redhead on the package, to be honest, but I have a thing for peachy or pinky highlights so this was right up my alley. It is not over-the-top or blindingly metallic, but it can be built up a little bit without looking …Read more

One of my all time favorite highlighters! I am a NW15-20 in Mac for reference, so fair with cool undertones. Cindy-Lou has the perfect pink soft shimmer (no glitter!), where I find most pink(ish) highlighters shift to a cool white/metallic when applied on the cheeks. I use this as a blush topper. It is nice and creamy, a little goes a long way. It looks natural but you can build it up if you want …Read more

I'm so conflicted about this product.

Let me preface this by saying that I love, LOVE theBalm products-- their cheeky packaging to their philosophy to their actual products to their commitment to not using talc in their eye shadows and blushes. This is why it's so hard for me to swallow that the company uses PTFE (TEFLON) in their products-- and yes, there's TEFLON in …

For reference I am about NC20-25. Light medium skin tone with yellow undertone. This I use as blush or a blush topper. A tad too dark for a highlight on my skin. Its fairly subtle, No visible flecks of glitter at all. Beautiful rosy pink glow effects when I use this. Texture is very velvety smooth and not chalky. Lasts fairly well. After about 12 hour wear I can still see it on my cheeks. I love …Read more

I really like the balm as a brand and this is a great eyeshadow! The color is flattering, makes a subtile glow when used with a light hand. I do not like sparkle in my bronzer but on special occations I use this on my face as well.

I really like using this highlighter for my inner tear duct, brow bone, and Cupid's bow. I feel like it's a great shade and stands out nicely in those places.

Love. Especially when I'm traveling, it works for so many things. I'm too pale to use it as a highlighter, but it's great as a blush topper to pop out the apples of my cheeks, or as a straight blush. It looks amazing over a light gray eyeshadow. Every once and a while I'll pat it on a matte lipstick for a more dimensional look. im generally cool and pale, and I use it for a …Read more

I have both this and Mary-loumanizer from theBalm..I much prefer this shade, as its a more natural/pinky gold highlight, that's subtle but flattering on a woman over 40. I like to use it above or just running into the area of a matte blush or bronzer...definitely recommend.
