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.

Just OK

I wanted to love this product judging from the great reviews. However, it looks extremely metallic right out of the compact but is totally invisible when applied to my face. I would prefer to save my money on something with a little more impact.

this product was ok. it works for the first hour or so then it just gets your face gunky (or at least my face) and I broke out in a rash ... maybe this product is not meant for me

I like this product, but I'm not in love with it. It does a good job highlighting/luminzing, but I've got light bronzers that can get the job done for less. I agree with the other reviewer that it does emphasize pores, but that's part of the territory with a product like this.

Pretty but it does emphasize pores
Purchased

You will need to be careful with the amount used and blending it out. But it is a beautiful light gold shimmer, not glittery at all.

Good but...

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

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 . . .

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.
