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.

Not bad but not great
Sampled

I know a lot of people like these one but I find the glitter to be a little bit too chunky - I prefer a more elegant finish for a highlighter. Also, wish it were smoother

Decent

This isn't bad especially for the price, it feels nice, applies well and is of medium pigment density. The only issue is its maybe not the right color for me not bad but in just not sure I do like the consistency and application and it lets so jury is still out.

Love the shimmer/Unfortunately pore clogging
Purchased

I love the shimmer that this offers. I do have to blend it in, otherwise it is quite obvious there is powder on my face. Once applied and blended it works awesome! Makes skin look great in photographs! On the down side it clogs the heck out of my pores and the next day or two is black head and mini pimple city. I only use it when I need to look my most fabulous. It does make great eye-shadow. I will unfortunately continue my luminizer hunt!

light and natural glow
Sampled

This is a really light colored highlighter, which leaves a subtle shimmer. Nice for day wear for a little touch of natural looking shine, but not very dramatic for highlighting a night look.

Just OK
Purchased

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

It's OK
Purchased

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...
Purchased

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.
