What is with PB and highlighters recently eh? A couple of weeks back, I told you about a liquid highlighter that had me absolutely head over heels over it, and this week, I’m going to show you yet another highlighter-type product. Ok, so this one doesn’t call itself a highlighter, but an illuminating balm, and there is a difference. It means you are justified owning both! LOL!
The Bobbi Brown Illuminating Moisture Balm popped on the scene some time last year, and straddles the line between the Bobbi Brown makeup and skincare ranges. You will notice this from 2 things – the name (the Bobbi Brown Extra label usually encompasses the skincare range) and the product description (Moisture Balm).
This isn’t a primer, nor is it technically a highlighter. What it is, if you can imagine, is like a moisturiser that illuminates your skin so it looks brighter, radiant and better. It’s like faking good skin when you don’t really have great skin or are feeling a little blah that particular day. It’s not a must have, because it’s not a life-changing skincare item, but it is most certainly nice to have! 🙂
