It’s none other than the True Dimension Radiance Balm from the Korean makeup brand, Hince!

Much like CHANEL’s Glow Stick, Hince’s Radiance Balm is a versatile product infused with natural shimmer to reflect light, providing a luminous and glowing complexion.

It works as a highlighter, blush, eye shadow, and even as a lip glow! So, if you aspire to achieve that dreamy wet, shimmery skin look, this balm serves as the ideal finishing touch to your makeup routine.

This balm boasts transparent colour tones, giving you a natural glow as if it’s radiating from your own skin. With delicate sheer colours, it creates a translucent, multi-dimensional glow when you swipe it on.

Using it is a breeze – swipe it where you want that highlight and glow, then blend and diffuse with your fingertips. Thanks to its thin, spreadable texture, you can build up or layer it for your preferred level of shine.

The Shades

Is It Worth Purchasing?
