Hi Glitter Babes!
Even though it's the beginning of September and the leaves will eventually start to change and the weather will begin to wreak havoc on our skin, that doesn't mean we have to play the victim! Keep feeling like the true goddess you are with Buxom Divine Goddess Illuminizer.
I recently got this illuminizer by Buxom in a makeup set, so it's half the size of the one regularly sold at Sephora. What makes this illuminizer different from everything else out there is that once applied, it gives the skin a cooling sensation. Depending on how sensitive your skin may be, this can either be a positive or negative. Divine Goddess is a sheer, lightweight champagne toned highlighter that can be worn alone or mixed with your foundation for an incandescent glow. It is also paraben-free, sulfate-free and phthalate-free.
Ingredients: Water, Squalane, Glycerin, Diisostearyl Malate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Trihydroxystearin, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Polysorbate 60, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Salicylate, Fragrance, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool.

As I mentioned above, this highlighter works best alone or mixed with your foundation because if you apply it on top of your foundation, it will make your skin look splotchy and uneven. I also like that this gives the skin more of a sheen rather than shimmer, which makes this product something that will work on all ages and skin types. The refreshing feeling it adds is a nice pick-me-up for mornings when my skin feels dull and tired. And the tube lasts forever since you only need to apply a dab of it to get that beautiful, natural looking glow. It's sheer in coverage so I like that I can use it with any of my foundations or BB Creams and it's not going to alter the colour. The results also last all day long, especially when it's mixed with foundation.
If you can get past the tingly-cooling effect, this illuminizer, for the size and price, is well worth looking into. The fact that it's in a tube will make this one hard to pass up, since a lot of cream illuminizers on the market come in bottle form. After I finish up this tube, I will more than likely buy the full-sized version!
