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 highlighter
Sampled

So far I have only used this as a highlighter on my brow bones and inner corners of my eyes, but I love the color! Very pretty light gold. It goes on very smoothly and stays put all day even without primer on my eyes.

OBSESSED

I was using MAC Whisper of Gilt before receiving this sample but now this is my go to. Perfect amount of luminous/shimmer to highlight

Another hit from theBalm!

I love this product. It's a powder shadow (etc) but the formula makes it feel so velvety soft that it feels like a cream. I've used it as a highlight in all the normal places... inner corner of the eye, under the brow, cupid's bow, cheekbones... and it looks really nice.

Fantastic

I love this stuff! It goes on smooth and stays for hours. It makes for a good highlighter. I even use it for my lid shade for my soft natural look. I use this every day and my makeup collection would be lacking without it.

I love this stuff!

I love this stuff! haha!! No really i do! It leaves a really nice shimmer where ever i use it,and it doesn't feel heavy. I like using it as a finishing touch when I'm going out. It gives a very glamorous finished look.

Oh my stars.

Now, keep in mind that this is my first highlighter experience, but this stuff was life changing. And sparkley, which was bonus points. For a makeup-newbie, I'm totally thrilled with the look, and it's simple enough that I can get it done in no time flat.

*adore* Now I've got super high hopes for that blush that came today...

Best Luminizer Out There

This is seriously the best luminizer I have ever used. It highlights perfectly, brings light to the areas I put it on but doesn't make me look too caked on our too shimmery.

I really love this brand & product so much that I had just purchased the full size product from BirchBox! The only complaint I have with the sample I had received was that it seem like someone had already tested out the sample beforehand, because there's a fingerprint ..

great eyeshadow

I have been using the sample I received almost everyday since I first laid hands on it. It is almost the same color as the eyeshadow I have used since I was in 6th grade... but better! A little sparklier, a little smoother, and with a lot more staying power. I love it!

Love this product

I use this almost daily now, either as an eyeshadow or as a brow enhancer. It's just the right amount of shine, and is easy to wear during the day or at night.
