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.

Cute package, great color

Love the color. I am a huge fan of golds & tans. My sample was a combination of both. Perfect for me!

Surprisingly great!
Sampled

I didn't have a lot of expectations for this product. I figured that it was just another shimmery highlighter to add to my repertoire, but I was wrong. It has the consistency of a very velvety-smooth eyeshadow, and is easy to apply. Just using your finger, you can apply it either heavily, or spread it out until it is very subtle. Since I spend most of my time at a Pilates studio, I tend to wear very little to no make-up, which makes my genetically dark eye circles very prominent. I used a touch of it jut under my eyes and smoothed it out, and my eyes instantly brightened. A little can really go a long way!

Just OK

I've seen this around a lot but never tried anything from theBalm, I used it as eye shadow. I liked how it looked this morning before I went to work and I got compliments today. But after getting home I noticed that it had creased in one eyelid and looked ok in the other. I'll try this again, but so far I'm not impressed. The packaging is super cute though.

I love that it highlights and make a subtle shimmer without looking too "young" or being obnoxious.

Bright Eyes!

I've been using this product in the inner corner of my eye where it is really dark, and it has made my eyes look bigger and brighter!

Works good!
Sampled

I'm not usually a person who uses highlighters, but since I have dark shadowing in the inner corner of my eye, i decided to put just a small dab there. Right away my eyes looked brighter! I haven't really tried it in any other area but so far so good!

Awesome Product!
Sampled

I love love love this product! Not only does it blend well with all my other makeup but I can do so much with it. I've used it to highlight my cheek bones on a 'light makeup day' , dressed up my evening look by using it on my lips, eyes and cheeks, and it works like a charm to 'wake up' my eyes when I'm tired and running late. Brilliant!
