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.

Versatile and all-around excellent

I have been into the Balm products since trying their blush several years ago. This product is even more versatile and wearable than that was, since you can use it on both the eyes and the face. Plus, I got complimented on its shimmery, hard-to-pin-down shade (in a good way) the very first time I wore it. I've mostly used it on my eyes, blending it with several different shadows for a variety of effects.

Perfect for eyeshadow!

I used this mostly as an eyeshadow, not so much as a bronzer, and I loved it. It made my eyes pop in photos and was light enough that applying it was super easy. I definitely plan on buying this product.

A Shimmer Addict's Dream

I am always telling people that if there was shimmer embedded moisturizing toilet paper I would buy it. I am currently using a luminizer by Benefit which sometimes makes my skin itch and doesn't go on as smoothly as I'd like. I was pleasantly surprised by the application of this product. The shimmer is lovely, I even put some on my collar bones and I looked sun-kissed. Which is nice since it's the middle of December, and I refuse to lay in a tanning bed. All in all, great product and even better sample packaging. How great is the magnetic lid!!

Great Highlighting Product
Purchased

This is the best product I've found to highlight my skin. I have medium skin, and some of the other products are too white, while others are too silver. This one is just right!

Highlighters are all the rage right now, and I too am obsessed! I think what sets this one a part from the rest is the golden undertone it has. I believe it would be beautiful on all skin tones. I personally have very fair skin and it really warmed up my tone.

I love it!

I haven't been into luminizers for most of my life, but that's because I've lived in mostly sunny, warm climates where my skin is constantly oily. Now that I find my skin is dry for the most part, and in the winter, it's full, a luminizer is a great choice. I loved the sample and I love the versatility of the product.

Not what I expected (in a good way)
Sampled

I love the packaging on this sample its a good travel size and like a compact. I excepted it to be a balm but its actually a powder (thankfully) I will definitely be using this as an eyeshadow/highlighter. Love the champagne color will probably purchase a full size when it runs out!
