 "Dat highlight doe?!" - I've been the envy of a good highlight for a while now and have been lusting after the much loved Mary Lou Manizer from The Balm but 1.It's normally always sold out 2.When it actually is in stock I question if I'd spend £17.00 on one highlight?! 3.I repeat number 2.

I've tried all sorts of replacement options and even got round to using my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette shade 'Bootycall' which was the PERFECT champagne highlight .. till it ran out! Damn you Naked 2 Pallette. So this lead me to go roaming through Boots and Superdrug when I came across this little beauty. The 'Makeup Revolution I <3 Makeup' range was in sight and I thought 'why not just have a little look' and there's where I spotted the most gorgeous replacement shade out of the corner of my eye. In comes the Goddess of Love Blushing Hearts Highlighter in shade 'Goddess of Faith'. When you are hunting these down there is one thing to keep in mind, the packaging for all three shades is EXACTLY THE SAME. I almost walked out the store without one as the slot for this shade was empty but something urged me to just check the back of the packaging of the one that was left in a different slot and low and behold, there was one left! 

 Now the packaging is just stunning for such a greatly priced item at only £4.99 - I was quite wowed. It's very reminiscent of Benefit/ The Balm meets Too Faced but obviously a little more flimsy than the packaging you'd expect from Too Faced. The cardboard packaging is pretty sturdy but I can't help feel they may not be 100% travel friendly so air with caution on this one. 

Goddess of Faith is a gorgeous pink toned Champagne shade that I feel would suit pretty much all skin types but glistens gorgeously on my pale but slightly tanned skin from Mexico (think NC25 or Light Beige) The product is finely milled but does have a slightly chalky texture to the formula that the Mary Lou Manizer does not so I would say you probably do get what you pay for. But I don't mind using an extra bit of blending work to get this highlight looking 'fierce'. I apply this with a small brush, to the tops of the cheekbones and then blend out with my contour/ bronzer brush. I do find it needs a little more blending than my UD Bootycall shade I was previously using but if you use a light hand and slowly build, this can look incredible. The product is very pigmented and quite long lasting but may need a top up during the day. I have however used this for a week straight and I've only just slightly grazed the top of the product so this will last quite a long time.

The Goddess of Love highlighters are available in 3 shades, Goddess of Faith (pink champange) Goddess of Love (more of a 'pure white' highlight) and Golden Goddess (a yellow toned Golden shade) from Makeup Revolution - £4.99
