I was waiting for the day that the balm would be featured on Hautelook again...this day happened to be a day where North Carolina had an awful icestorm and I lost power for an entire day.....but hey, I found a way to order these goodies (3g babbbbyyy). Of course, it took a month to get everything and they all came in separate boxes...what even; get yo shit together haute look dats not eco conscious.. Anyway, the price was right
..sorry- and I wanted to go ahead an put my 2 cents in on the products that I bought
After all the damn peer pressure, I decided to buy Mary Lou-Manizer because,yeah...you know why. It's a gorgeous golden highlighter that's pretty stark, but not too glittery or frosty...me likey! Also, it's so buttery and smooth and that's always a plus for some reason.
what a melon! Melon shade that is.. This is the instain blusher in Swiss Dot. This one packs a punch and when they say stain, they ain't fucking around. This is one of the longest wearing blushers in my collection! That's about all I can say, they're just great!
If there's something that my collection lacks, it's good concealers...so I just picked one up for the heck of it (so frivolous) . The names Time Balm and Lighter than Light, I was sold. However, this is not lighter than light because it was still too dark and peachy for me...the struggle continues. However, it's not cakey, natural looking but has full coverage; it's a pretty solid concealer!

Overall, these all lived up to the quality I expect from the balm! I got all three for $40, but if I had bought them off of the balm's site, it would be $64
