theBalm® cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer® Highlighter, Shadow & Shimmer

If being too gorgeous were a crime, this luminizing powder would turn us all into serial offenders. Ok, maybe that'’s a little extreme, but can you blame us? This three-in-one highlighter, eyeshadow, and all-over shimmer is the prettiest honey-hued pigment we’ve ever laid our eyes on. As the pun-tastic name suggests, this versatile luminizer imparts a soft-focus glow wherever we choose to apply it. Light-reflecting silica particles conceal blemishes and fine lines, while the honey color leaves a sheer wash of shimmer. It’'s our secret to looking great in all settings, from fluorescent cubicles to candlelit cafes.

Great as an eyeshadow
Sampled

This almost colorless shimmer is a good highlighter, but I especially like it as an eyeshadow. The shimmer is subtle but really makes my eyes pop. Most impressively, it stays on all day without settling into creases.

Can't go wrong with theBalm!
Sampled

This is a very useful product, and like many of theBalm products, has multiple uses. I don't use luminizers a lot because I have combination skin, but this adds highlights exactly where I want them. You can use it your eyes as well as cheeks. TheBalm makes great products at a good price point, and this is no exception.

I liked this product but it wasn't something new to me.. it seems I already had a couple different eye shadows this shade.

The Balm Highlighter
Sampled

This was a great shimmery highlighter. It is something I would use in the evening because the shimmer is so intense. The sample size was huge and it will last a long time. I like how it can double as an eyeshadow. I will be trying more products from this brand.

I was a little confused how to use such a multi-functional product correctly, but the video tutorial on BirchBox's product page helped a lot. I couldn't get it to really work the way I wanted to for my cheeks and lips, but I love it so much on my eyes that I don't even care. Unfortunately for BirchBox, the sample size they sent me was so cute, compact, and convenient, that I think I like it a lot better than the regular size product. That probably won't stop me from purchasing more when I run out, though.

Great!

I loved this highlighter with golden tint rather than pink/silver. It was gorgeous in all sorts of places on my face, but I think my new favorite is as an eyeshadow base: it made my shadows wonderfully shimmery!

AMAZING!!

This is my new most favoritest highlighter of all time ever! The color is perfection for browbone, inner eye and cheekbone highlights, the texture is smooth as silk and the result is classy and retro - exactly what I was going for! I am a highlighter convert!

love this product

I was extremely excited about this product. I love that it is not too overpowering as a highlighter. It's also very multi purpose. This was my favorite thing in the October box!
