Dare to Compare: Get Your Glow On! Part 2

Hard Candy Tiki, theBalm Mary Lou-manizer, and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish By Candlelight

These highlighter on my pale skin act more like a warm glow on the skin compared to Part 1. Up to bat Hard Candy Tiki, theBalm Mary Lou-manizerser, and MAC By Candlelight! This review is being done after selling my By Candlelight.



Hard Candy Tiki, theBalm Mary Lou-manizer, and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish By Candlelight





Products & Colour: 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish By Candlelight
The darkest of these glow powders I own, This one my skin is mush more rose tinted bronzer on me with gold shimmer particles.


Hard Candy Tiki
More gold shimmer with dewy glow but the particles are more evenly distributed it gives a nice sun kissed look.

theBalm Mary Lou-manizer
Again this is a shimmer glow powder but I found that the particles look finer on the skin then the gold shimmer of By Candlelight.








Wear:
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish By Candlelight and Hard Candy Tiki wear for about 8 hours. theBalm Mary Lou-manizer I was able to see 10 hours wear before noticeable fading probably because it's all fine milled shimmer.


Packaging:
All of these are compacts so it's great for travel. The only startling thing was my theBalm Mary Lou-manizer the glue they used cracked as its a solid resin binder, so I have this now in a Z-plalette. 


Price:
All these product cost around the $12 to $28 CAN however you can find sales on Hard Candy products and you and by theBalm products at select Rexall stores that have the beauty boutique section (the larger stores) in Canada so that you don't have to order this online.




  Daylight Swatches: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish By Candlelight, Hard Candy Tiki, and theBalm Mary Lou-manizer.
Flash Swatches: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish By Candlelight, Hard Candy Tiki, and theBalm Mary Lou-manizer.


WINNER:
For me it the theBalm Mary Lou-manizer, it just work on my fair skin to even medium skin tone so nicely as it's a simple warm gold glow. This I suspect it would still look ashy on darker skin tones as it is a pale shade. I've also use it in the inner corner of the eye time to time for subtle pop of light.


Note: Why I sold By Candelight, because I like the finish on the MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Whisper of Guilty and Superb more but the chances of getting those know is impossible which is why I didn't include them int his post. By Candelight get re-promoted every few years on the other hand.
