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.

Nothing special

It's a nice eyeshadow, but does nothing as a highlighter or illuminizer. I'll stick with my Becca cosmetics highlighter, which I can mix into my face lotion.

Interesting

This is an interesting product and it has its uses, but it might be a bit too unnatural looking for my tastes (at least for normal wear). That being said, I can see myself making use of it for certain events etc.

Again, the sample of this was so small it was difficult to use. I wasn't able to get a true sense of the product because I was always fighting to get it out of the sample case. Even after having used it I don't think it's a product for me.

Too Shimmery
Sampled

The color was nice, but hard to apply tastefully. It is very shimmery, bt can look good when applied minimally.

Not For Me
Sampled

Love the cute packaging! Unfortunately this just isn't for me -- I'm an overall "silver" person (no gold for me in terms of cosmetics, clothing, jewelry, etc.). Also it's a too shimmery for my taste in an illuminator, though it would be perfect as an eye shadow (IF I used gold...). These are just personal preferences & don't reflect upon the product (uh, pun intended, I guess....)

A nice product, but not really my style. I dont' really have a need for shimmer in my life. I did like the case it came in though, really compact and cute.

Not too fond of this product as I don't like shimmery eye make-up.

Glitter?

This is fine... nothing special from my perspective. I would like it better without the glitter!

Shiny
Sampled

I do not like luminizers in general. I try really hard to decrease shininess with my beauty routine, why bring more back? Anyhow, I really liked the color of this product and loved it as an eyeshadow. Unfortunately, my eyes were too sensitive to it, causing redness and tearing. I gave it to a friend.

This highlighter is a little too yellowy for me, but it has a wonderful texture and shine.
