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.

Good but...
Purchased

I'm not that new to know you can't drop powder products and expect them to keep in-tact... However, I would say I fumbled this product vs dropping it, sitting down at my vanity and it broke to peices (from my hands to the vanity surface)! Like tempered glass broke. Super bummed.

not a repeat purchase
Purchased

This product is just okay. It has it's features like any other illuminzer but I guess for my age...upper 40's ...it's just too much shine. The only place I really like it is down the bridge of my nose. I can't use it on my eyelids unless I downplay it a bit with a darker color over it.

Great but not for me
Purchased

This is a great product for a woman in their 20s, but for a 37-year-old mom to two, it was a little too sparkly. It didn't seem age appropriate for me.

the balm

This color is so neutral it goes with everything. A little goes a long way! I've even dabbed a little on my lips and it looks great with some gloss.

Maybe I'm not using it correctly . . .
Purchased

This is OK. I have played around with it but I'm not sure yet if I love it and will order it again. I don't see the effects that everyone else is talking about. But none of this means that I will give up on it. I might search out a video or something to help me out.

Very, very, VERY luminizing
Purchased

WAY too much shimmer for me and is too powdery for an every day, natural look. Or maybe I just don't know how to apply it. I will be sticking to a cream luminizer. Wish I had been sent the sample before I purchased the full size. I give it a C, sorry theBalm i'm usually a fan :/

Great on eyes and brow bones
Purchased

I'm on the fence about this. It really is a high quality product. I like to use it on my eyes and to highlight my brows-- for that, it's perfect. I find it's easy to go overboard when used on the face and make fine lines I didn't know I had above my cheeks more visible. When toned down with a little makeup I do like it but am not raving about it.

A bit too "glittery"
Purchased

I'm not quite sure how to apply this product quite yet. You have to be careful to use very little or else the look is way too glittery. But it does work nicely as a highlighter when you're contouring. Just use sparingly!

shimmery
Purchased

I bought this product based on it's great reviews. I agree that it is versatile, and perhaps I will use it for more than an eyeshadow come summer when I get a little tan back! I would say, though, that it is more shimmery than I realized which may limit its use for me
