theBalm® cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer

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.

Maybe too shimmery
Sampled

If you like a lot of shimmer and shine, this product is wonderful, but it can go on very thick.

Jack of all trades

This product is amazing in the sense that you can use it for just about anything. From eyeshadow to an added highlighter to your blush to accenting your lips to eyebrows it can do it all! In my opinion it is a little expensive but definitely splurge worthy.

I love this for my highlight. I have similar ones in other brands but it's a good opportunity to try out other brand products this way. I did swatched it and the color is pretty rich which I love.

loves this!
Sampled

I loved this product - I already have a ton of eye shadow so I won't be purchasing but this was a great color and I used it for base as well as hi-lighting areas. Lasts all day!

Too small

I love the product itself, but the sample size is incredibly disappointing. It's too small to use any brush besides an eyeshadow brush. It's been way too long since I received a decent-sized sample (or a full size, isn't that a thought!?) in my box.

Great consistency!
Sampled

I usually stay away from overly shimmer highlighters (I'm very oily/shiny), but I adore this color as an eyeshadow. The formula is a nice silky powder consistency, with rich pigmentation pay-off (rare!)

I'm not really a shadow kind of girl but this was a gorgeous color and not tacky with sparkles and glitter you could lightly put it on for slight shimmer or double up to be super glam. I'm also a total sucker for packaging and this package is adorable. It makes you want to use it just so you can take it out of your makeup bag. I like that it's so versatile. You can put it anywhere!I'm still playing around with it so I'm not sure if I'd buy it but it's fun to play with.

Great pigmentation!
Sampled

I'm really impressed with this product. I used it last night as an eyeshadow, and it exceeded expectations. It was very pigmented - I only needed a little bit. It also blended very well with the other shadows I used. And the color, on my fair skin, works well as a base. Also, the packaging is very cute and the sample size is very generous! I'm very pleased with this sample.
