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.

Pleased with this sample
Sampled

I received this as a sample in my box and I really like it. The color blends in well and leaves just a bit of glimmer. Although the sample is small not much is needed at once so it will last me a while.

Great Powder Illuminator
Sampled

Everyone needs a Shimmer/ illuminatior. This is a great product, but I prefer the cream illuminators over the powder.

Cute package, great color

Love the color. I am a huge fan of golds & tans. My sample was a combination of both. Perfect for me!

Surprisingly great!
Sampled

I didn't have a lot of expectations for this product. I figured that it was just another shimmery highlighter to add to my repertoire, but I was wrong. It has the consistency of a very velvety-smooth eyeshadow, and is easy to apply. Just using your finger, you can apply it either heavily, or spread it out until it is very subtle. Since I spend most of my time at a Pilates studio, I tend to wear very little to no make-up, which makes my genetically dark eye circles very prominent. I used a touch of it jut under my eyes and smoothed it out, and my eyes instantly brightened. A little can really go a long way!

Just OK

I've seen this around a lot but never tried anything from theBalm, I used it as eye shadow. I liked how it looked this morning before I went to work and I got compliments today. But after getting home I noticed that it had creased in one eyelid and looked ok in the other. I'll try this again, but so far I'm not impressed. The packaging is super cute though.

I love that it highlights and make a subtle shimmer without looking too "young" or being obnoxious.
