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. We wear it when we want to sport a unified look that plays up our best features (think model-esque cheekbones and alluring eyes).

Keeping this as a frequent go-to.

I received this as a gift, and am thrilled. "Honey" truly is the hue that it is. Be aware: If you go to heavy, it is an obvious shimmer, so start with a light touch for something subtle, and layer for more shimmer. Compact is a great size and the product will last a long time.

Good Product
Sampled

theBalm is a great company with great products. This particular product is decent. I didn't notice a huge noticability in the color but it's a good neutral.

Perfect Blush for Fair Skin

The peachy glow is a perfect compliment to fair/pale complexions. Its no overly dark and gives a perfect hue. I use it to balance my foundation so I don't appear "white-washed".

Multi-tasking!

I didn't realize how awesome this was until I used it as eye shadow... this works great as a highlighter, but even better as eyes shadow...and how sweet and convenient to have the two in one!

Holy Grail Highlighter
Purchased

I absolutely adore this product! I bought this a few months ago after seeing so many wonderful reviews on beauty blogs and youtube reviews and it does not disappoint. It's versatile, and gives my skin the perfect glow. It works wonderfully with my fair complexion, unlike some highlighters which have an odd or dark hue. It looks dewy without making my already oily/combo skin look too greasy. I don't even know what else to say about it other than that I never want to go without it. I'm really thankful that Birchbox has this product. <3

The Balm Does it Again

I love this product. It is versatile, subtle, yet effective. I cannot say enough good things about this product. The day I run out of it without at least having more on order will not be a a happy day.

So pretty!
SampledPurchased

I mostly use this as an eyes shadow. It looks good day or night and I have received so many compliements. The sample that came in my birch box lasted a LONG time. I just purchased and do not foresee needing it for a long time. Great product!

PERFECT.
Purchased

Like others on this product's review, I saw this product on a makeup artist's (Lauren Beauty) makeup tutorial! So versatile for everyday use. It's subtle sheen is a great pairing with a matte blush. No irritation from the ingredients with my sensitive/acne prone skin either.
