Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Using a blush brush, sweep the powder on your cheekbones, layering over foundation or applying directly to bare skin. You can also use your fingertips or a shadow brush to wear it as a shadow. Don’t be afraid to get creative: consider adding a bit of luminizer to the bridge of your nose and your lower lash line to illuminate your whole face.

Beautiful, strong highlighter

I held off buying this for so long but now I know why this is such a popular highlighter. This is a very pretty pale golden highlighter that glistens beautifully on the skin. Very easy to apply and never looks overdone. Highly recommend for all makeup skill levels and interest.

Nice multiple use product

I keep this sample in my travel bag because it's small and has multiple uses. It's not my go to highlighter, but it does get the job done while I'm on the road. It's a nice eyeshadow as well and I've even rubbed some in the middle of my lips to make them appear bigger.

Super Punchy Luminizer

First off, the packing is adorable, but also sturdy. And then when you open it it's like a choir of angels singing! So pigmented and high shine, I love this for a cheekbone highlight, but also use it for a highlight under my brow bone or as an inner corner shade. Multipurpose and good at it!

Best affordable highlighter
Purchased

Over the past few weeks I had been reading and watching reviews on the best highlighters. After trying out Hourglass, Too Faced, Urban Decay and many others.. most had WAY too much glitter in the formula, leaving me feeling like a 12 year old again. I was looking for something subtle but that also gave a glow from within look. The Mary-Lou Manizer from theBalm was the perfect combination of not being over priced and hitting the formula mark right on. A little bit goes a long way with this product so you will definitely not run out of this fast and is worth the price.

Super creamy powder
Purchased

This is a really pretty golden creamy powder, it goes on very nicely and is pretty pigmented for a luminizer. It can also be easily blended. For a more glowing less intense look.

Love!
Purchased

I try and return products all the time because it is so hard to find products that work so well! I bought this based on some Youtube reviews and I love it. It is just the right amount of shimmer to give you that glow but not at all obvious. Sometimes I actually feel like I have to put on more to see it but I am tan and I do like that it looks more natural than in your face. It also doesn't have any glitter type specks so it looks beautiful on. Love it!

Not for me
Purchased

A lot more shimmery than I had expected. Also the color did not match my skin tone. I like theBalm but this product was not for me.

Not my favorite highlighter

This is not the best highlighter but I like it as an all over shadow on lid. I haven't tried it wet but will do to see if that makes a difference.
