I think it’s safe to say that every time you see a post from my about ANYTHING from The Balm.. I love the product. I’ve tried bits from most categories now and I am just so, so impressed. This was one of the things I’d heard the most about prior to getting my hands on anything so it was the thing I was most skeptical about. When everyone tells me how great something is I tend not to believe the hype.. if anything it delays my purchase.. this is one such example.
The colour is perfect, champagne.. not too warm, not too cool, could easily double as an eyeshadow in a pinch or if you’re tight on space in your makeup bag. The formula is good.. it’s fine enough that it’s not giving you that chunky, glittery look BUT it’s not that perfect sheen I forever search for. It’s very good, don’t get me wrong but I CAN see some shimmery particles. That’s not a deal break, I love it and have used it a lot already but it’s worth mentioning for those of you who already have something you’re happy with but are looking for that ultimate sheen.. this isn’t quite it. That being said the price is good and the packaging is cute, compact but feels substantial.
Overall.. very good product for kind of an inflated drugstore price.. I’ve mentioned it in each Balm review so far but I have to say it.. it’s that buffer between high end drugstore and low end beauty hall that I think is just so much more accessible and perfectly priced for the audience they’re trying to reach. I love it and I think you will too.
