Hello, friends! I hope the weekend served you well. This has been a post I've been meaning to get up for weeks but for some reason, kept putting others before it. If you haven't heard yet, Khol's is carrying new prestige brands such as The Balm, Lorac, Cargo, Pur Minerals, and even Real Techniques. Being the addict I am, I almost died when I saw the glorious selection of amazing products.
The Balm is a brand I have experimented with very little. I've had several samples of eye shadows and the Mary Lou-Manizer (which I love) but nothing else. Their new "Instain" blush collection has had so many great raves and reviews that I was literally dying to try at least one! To my surprise, Khol's had lovely value sets that I couldn't pass up! Enjoy!
I'm such a fan of luminous products, especially bronzers. By looking at the Betty-Lou Manizer, you wouldn't think it's very dark. However, I have to admit that with my fair skin, I have to keep a light hand on it. I've really been loving it lately. It gives a soft golden finish. Since my skin is in it's super pale stage for the winter, the bronzer does have a slight orange undertone, which is normal for me in the winter. I suspect that will change once I get a little color. I love how velvety smooth both the Betty and Mary-Lou Manizers are. They apply beautifully and are extremely pigmented!
As soon as I saw this set, I knew I couldn't pass it up. I have been dying to try these blushes ever since EmilyNoel83 reviewed them months ago. They are generally $22 a piece but the entire set contains three full size blushes for $34.
