Namaste to all charming beauties!!!
For past several weeks, I was looking high and low for this particular product and since this brand is available only in Walmart, I had to wait for so long for my local Walmart store to stock it up. The moment it was back in stock I grabbed it before it went missing again.
Why I was scavenging for this particular product? Because I love it, it is a very unique product with an equally unique packaging. I have tried this product in the past but in a different shade and was extremely satisfied with it; however, the last shade I used was a wee bit lighter for me so I opted for a shade darker.
Below is my experience with this product..
Contouring has never been easier. Now you can create a multi-dimensional look with just one swipe! Cheeks & Balances provides a dual-toned stick that is designed to deliver the perfect amount of highlighter, and blush/bronzer to sculpt color and illuminate cheeks.
Ingredients: Not mentioned.
My Take on Hard Candy Cheeky Pink Highlighter and Contour:
This is one of those products that I saw one of my friends’ use and I was like – ‘Wow! I have to have it’. It is a complete package and let me elaborate as to how I make this claim.
Packaging: It is so cute and innovative. It comes in rectangular case but has a twist up mechanism. The product is in the form of a solid block with both a highlighter and a blush shade infused together with a defined partition. It looks like a cotton candy bar, wonder if it tastes the same 😉
Texture: Very creamy to apply and blend but not way too creamy to make your face appear greasy. It has homogenous glitter particles which give a natural dewy look to face in day light or under camera flash.
Color: The product is equally divided into two color zones – one side rosey pink color and other is the highlighter shade. One can use the stick in one go to get one color or use a brush to apply the two colors separately and blend them to get a more contoured look.
Product Efficiency: One can use it to get a very natural tint or can go all out to get that blink, appropriate for special occasions with million flash bulbs illuminating our face. A single swipe will give a subtle sheen which appears very natural and appealing; upon multiple swipes one can intensify the sheen. It is also very easy to blend, just with the help of finger tips. The product is really good for those who are new to the concept of highlighting and contouring.
Price: For the amount and effect achieved by this product, it is totally worth $6. Also various shades are available from tan to mauve and one can choose based on their skin type.
I really like such budget beauty hacks. It is ok to shell out tones of money once in a while to indulge in some luxury but otherwise I personally never see the point in buying super expensive products when same effect can be achieved with drug store brands. After all, I am an Indian and thrifty and proud about it. 🙂
