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.

Pretty but it breaks

I have bought this twice because I loved the color and like the highlight. Both times, with normal wear and tear I opened the compact to find the product completely crushed and I was only able to use it a couple more times. I couldn't keep the pieces in the compact.
Very disappointed because I usually love this company, and I buy from them frequently!

Purchased

very disappointing, I ordered five pieces one for me and the others for my friends, all of them were broken except one!

As for the product itself, its too shimmery for everyday use and I've never used it.

Too Shiny!
Purchased

I was super excited to try this product, especially since it was rated as one of the best selling products on BirchBox. However, it's super SHINY--waaaaay too shiny. I think it would be fun to use when going out on a fun night out dancing, but for everyday work wear, it's a little too crazy.

Too much shimmer
Purchased

Wanted to use this product for all over face coverage but even my 4 year old daughter told me I was covered in glitter. Will now only be using for eyeshadow. Can I please exchange and try again with another product??

Love, love, love it!

This is one of my favorite staples I own. It's great for highlighting, and it has such a nice subtle glow. In my opinion, it's a must-have!

This seems to be better for people with fair skin. I am more olive/tan so this highlight just dosent look good on me but I gave it to a friend and she loves it!

Overall, didn't think it worked well on my skin color. I ended up giving it to a friend with lighter skin, and it looked nicer on her.

Very Gold

Enjoyed the shade as an eyeshadow that I might seldom use, but not as a high liter/tinter as described. Too shiny.

Neither love or hate

I neither love or hate it, just kind of filler to the box. It's alright as a shimmer but I'm not a big fan of "all in one" products. Packaging is super cute though!
