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.

Maybe I'm not using it correctly . . .

This is OK. I have played around with it but I'm not sure yet if I love it and will order it again. I don't see the effects that everyone else is talking about. But none of this means that I will give up on it. I might search out a video or something to help me out.

Very, very, VERY luminizing
Purchased

WAY too much shimmer for me and is too powdery for an every day, natural look. Or maybe I just don't know how to apply it. I will be sticking to a cream luminizer. Wish I had been sent the sample before I purchased the full size. I give it a C, sorry theBalm i'm usually a fan :/

Great on eyes and brow bones
Purchased

I'm on the fence about this. It really is a high quality product. I like to use it on my eyes and to highlight my brows-- for that, it's perfect. I find it's easy to go overboard when used on the face and make fine lines I didn't know I had above my cheeks more visible. When toned down with a little makeup I do like it but am not raving about it.

A bit too "glittery"
Purchased

I'm not quite sure how to apply this product quite yet. You have to be careful to use very little or else the look is way too glittery. But it does work nicely as a highlighter when you're contouring. Just use sparingly!

shimmery
Purchased

I bought this product based on it's great reviews. I agree that it is versatile, and perhaps I will use it for more than an eyeshadow come summer when I get a little tan back! I would say, though, that it is more shimmery than I realized which may limit its use for me

Very shiny highlighter

I love highlighters, I use them daily, this one I liked for it's convenience. Compared to the liquid one I use I can carry this one with me anywhere whereas the benefit's liquid highlighter creates the perfect amount of highlight this but is difficult to carry. I received as a sample, I think I would purchase it on my own for the convenience.

Pros:
Easy to use, easy to carry

Cons:
Too shiny, it's good for going out late at night where it's dark and you may need strong make up but not good for subtle looks in my opinion

theBalm® cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer, what am I doing worng?
Purchased

I was really looking forward to this product but I am disappointed! I don't want to be so maybe someone out there has advice for me. I think I may be using the wrong brush to apply it with. The color is great and I love it as an eyeshadow but when I apply to my cheeks/face it seems difficult to spread around. I'm left with patches of it on my face. Any suggestions??

Versatile Highlighter - especially great for going out and special occaisions
Purchased

I didn't receive this in my monthly box, but I saw all the great reviews and decided to purchase it. I like how it's easy to use. The shimmer in this highlighter is great for a nighttime look or for special occasions, but it's a bit too much shimmer for an everyday look in my opinion. I like how it's very versatile and you can even use it as eyeshadow!

Love the idea
Purchased

Can't figure out how to make it work for me. I love how it goes on. Very smooth. But, I'm not sure about how it's supposed to be applied.
