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. We wear it when we want to sport a unified look that plays up our best features (think model-esque cheekbones and alluring eyes).

How it Works

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.

Great for everyday
Sampled

Fantastic eye shadow that is great for everyday use! It is just the perfect shade for having a little bit of shimmer while at work. It also layers really well on top of other shadows that are matte finish if you want them to have a shimmer.

This is amazing!
Sampled

SUCH a pretty color! I use this to highlight my brow bone and also the inner corners of my eyes. If I look especially tired, I'll run it under my bottom lashes too, and it just makes them brighter and glowy (not sparkly). I can't get enough of this, definitely HG for me.

AMAZING!

I am an avid youtube watcher...lol..and I have heard so many amazing things about Mary-Lou Manizer. I never knew! I bought this solely based on all the reviews I have heard about it. I was not disappointed. It is a gorgeous highlight. I have been using it every day since I received it.

Fresh!

This gives me an instant luminescence and makes me feel young and vibrant. It's not glitzy or shiny though. Love it!

makes your face glow
Purchased

This does add a nice glow to your face, but it can come off a little blotchy looking. Other than that I'm really liking it. I'm using it as a powder for days when I'm in a hurry.

Wonderfully luminous!
Sampled

I actually received this from a box back in the Fall of 2012 and I still have the sample from that box! I use it quite often, but just a dab at a time on the apple of each cheek or a swipe on the eyebrow bones to help brighten my eye area. It's wonderful!

Favorite Highlighter
Sampled

I love this color. The shimmeriness isn't too overpowering or metallic and it blends so nicely when I put it on top of my cheekbones. It's also the perfect lip accent for my top lip.

10/10 recommended.
