theBalm® cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer® Highlighter, Shadow & Shimmer

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.

Love the versatility
Purchased

I would would like to point out this powder is luminzer and not a bronzer which is fine. I love the subtle gold shimmer is provides my face. I use it on my cheek bones, inner eyes, and hairline. I love the brightness it provides my face.

LOVE!
Sampled

I absolutely love this product. It is a multi functional item as you can use it as both an eye shadow and a highlighter. It is not too glitterly like a lot of highlighters can be

Subtle

Perhaps I was spoiled by using the super pigmented highlighters from Colourpop, but this highlighter is super subtle. Which isn't necessarily bad. If you want a gentle highlight, this product is for you. But for me it was a bit frustrating to use. Even when I tried to use it for the inner corners of my eyes, it went on very weak. I have drugstore shades that are more pigmented.
All in all, if you have a very rigid job and need a gentle highlight, or just like highlights to be soft, this is a solid product (it will last a very long time). But if you're used to using a stronger one... this might not be your cup of tea.

lasts FOREVER
SampledPurchased

I've literally owned mine for almost 3 years, use it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. and I finally have pan showing! I will likely still get another year out of this, assuming it doesn't break. Beautiful, I always get compliments and you cannot beat the amount of product you get for the price.

Great Highlighter
Purchased

I prefer powder highlighters to cream or liquid. This one is great. It really is perfect for a multi-use. It gives a great shimmer and works so well with my skin tone, but it isn't too sparkly or glittery. I have no complaints!

Good

Really good! It could use some improvements though. I use this frequently and can't wait to see what else birch box comes out with! :)
