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.

Awesome but doesn't last long

I like the look of it and use it everyday, totally dig it but it doesn't last as long as I would have liked.

Nice

Looks great with or without a full face of makeup. Leaves a very nice glow and also looks good on eyes.

Good for one of three recommended uses.

Not really great as far as actually highlighting your features goes -- if you try to use it to contour or whatever you'll just look like you have weird shiny spots on your face. As a totally neutral eye shadow base, though, it's hard to beat, especially on ridiculously fair ladies like myself. A must-have for 5-minute makeup, makes my eyes pop nicely. As a highlighter, meh.

Great product, poor packaging

Love the product but mine came broken in my March Birchbox. I had to repair it with the help of Pinterest in order to even use it.

shiny and sparkles a lot

it's super sparkly but for my older eyes - and thin crepe skin it's just not a good match for me.
I'm sure on a smoother lid it would be pretty.

Didn't notice difference

Unfortunately, I didn't really see this brightening up my face at all. I have very fair skin, and that may be why. I will try again as it gets warmer, and I get a little color on my face. Hopefully I'll notice a difference then!

Not great for travel

I loved the size of the sample. Great for travel. Unfortunately, it's very delicate and cracked to bits on the first trip. Bummer.

Nice

I like this highlighter alot. It's light and subtle and can be used as an eyeshadow as well as a highlighter. It gives a nice color without being too shiny or shimmery

This product was okay, It was pretty and sparkled on my hand but was hard to see on my face.

Too shimmery, but It's growing on me
Purchased

My first reaction is that this is far too shimmery for a basic highlighter. I'm starting to like the shimmer, but I still think it's just to much for an every day, year round product. It's awesome as an eyeshadow when paired with a solid base.
