I picked one up immediately, then I swatched it and noticed it seemed to have a blue tone in it, couldn't imagine how it was going to work out as my beloved theBalm Mary Lou Manizer is champagne and gold tones, nothing else.
I still bought it was for two reasons, firstly it was £3 and secondly I really liked the swirls in the powder (ridiculous or what?!)
I use this powder with a fan brush and sweep it across the tops of my cheeks, above my eyebrows and on my cupids bow. On the skin I don't feel that it comes across with the blue tone that I originally saw and it's much more subtle than theBalm Mary Lou Manizer. For this reason I think it's brilliant for someone that has a really heavy hand as it's more forgiving
The bottom line is... I think if you're on a budget, don't think you'll use it that often or have a heavy hand then this would be a brilliant highlighter option for you.
However to be perfectly honest, I do prefer theBalm Mary Lou Manizer. I think it's possible that my thoughts about being good for a heavy handed person probably goes hand in hand with the fact that theBalm highlighter is much more high quality, creamy and pigmented and that's why you're paying a lot more for it.
