As mentioned before I am a sucker for baked-type powder products, especially the pretty marbled ones. I just couldn't resist when I spotted Skin Food's All Over Muffin Cake Finish on their website. I just had to have it (also for the cute and yummy name!)
My first baked beige/golden highlighter was Laneige's Snow Radiant Blusher which is also a gorgeous product so I am going to compare them.
Skin Food Muffin Cake: There are 3 colors available to my knowledge: A pink blush and 2 different beige tones. I decided to go for #3 as it looked like the lighter beige more suitable for my skin tone (and I shall get pink any time soon!) This is a gorgeous marbled powder that leaves a really dewy shine (you can easily overdo and look greasy!). I don't think it's really good to use it all over as the name suggests.
Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher: The Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher comes in 3 colors, too. A bronzy pink, pastel white and golden beige. The Laneige highlighter in gold (#03) has more pink tones than the Muffin Cake. The finish is also shimmery but not as dewy as the Muffin Cake. Both look similar when applied but look quite different in the pan.
Packaging: Skin Food's product comes in a cardboard compact with a brush hidden in the bottom. Laneige's Snow Radiant Blusher comes in a pretty laser-disc like compact but without brush.
Price: I paid US$30 for the Laneige product and US$35 for the Skin Food Muffin. I know that the Skin Food Muffin Cake retails for less than half in Korea but I don't know how much Laneige costs.
I honestly can't name a favorite, I just love them both! Probably the Laneige item is better value for money as it comes in a sturdier and more elegant compact and gives a slightly more subtle highlighting finish.
