I've wanted this highlighter since last Summer, it was forever sold out in Superdrug and I was 'budgeting' for Christmas. But eveeentually it was in stock over Christmas and my mam managed to grab it for me (thanks to Jasmine telling me), and it was also around £5 with it being black Friday so win win. My mam then hid it from me until Christmas day so I was super excited to get to use it!

If you haven't heard of this cult highlighter where have you been?? It's from The Balm and it is beautiful! It is a golden/honey toned highlighter and it is super pigmented. It isn't so pigmented that it is packed with glitter though, it diffuses the light on your cheekbones and creates a fab subtle glow. You can build it up for an intense glow if that's the look you like, though I only ever add extra on a night out. It's also amazing when applied with a wet brush (that's been sprayed with a fixing spray).

I've recently discovered strobing, a year later I know, but out of all of my other highlighters this is the one which creates the nicest effect. With it's golden tone it creates a really natural and bronzed glow to your complexion, I need a bronzed glow as whiter highlights make me appear to ghost like. If you didn't know (like me), strobing is using your highlighter to contour your face rather than using a dark bronzer to define your face. You apply the highlight wet (and dry) onto your cheek bones and other areas of your face you want to stand out.. no more muddy cheeks.

Obviously I love this, it's actually over taken my love for Mac's Soft & Gentle.. really! You definitely need to grab this from Superdrug.. and if gold is a little too much for you there is also Cindy Lou Manizer which is a much lighter and pink toned highlight.

You have grabbed this yet?
