Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Tower 28 Beauty SuperDew Shimmer-Free Highlighting Balm.
This product was a gift with purchase and not something I would have bought myself. It’s a glossy highlighter completely transparent, so it just gives a wet glow.
I feel like is more of an editorial product because on me, looks like I’m sweating.
This shade is completely transparent.
It comes in a really pretty box that has a swatch to see the colour, I think is very cute.
The packaging itself is very classic and simple, the shade is written at the bottom and there’s also a description on how to use it which is really nice.
It feels very sturdy and chic.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
The formula is quite soft and smooth. It isn’t streaky or clumpy, it doesn’t enhance pores or texture and I like it both on top of powder or underneath.
Now it’s completely transparent so it gives more of a wet glow that will look good in pictures but in real life makes me look a bit sweaty.
So in theory, I can see where they were going with this (glossy cheeks) and it works better than other products but practically is not something I’ll ever use.
Differently for a cream blush, this stays wet though so hair will stick to it.
I use a stippling brush that’s not too dense and it’s very easy to use. You can use your fingers but I find I have more control with the brush.
On me, it lasts around 6 hours before starting to fade.

I’m a bit torn with this product, because for what it does, it’s good but really is not something I’ll ever use. If I want to do glossy cheeks I’ll just use a gloss which, yes, it’s uncomfortable but I’d probably only have it on to take a picture so I can bear it. If you like glossy cheeks and want to wear them longer, it works but the fact that it stays wet might still be uncomfortable.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
