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.

Ok, I was hesitant, I was skeptical. Now I am a believer. Just as the other reviews stated (which was my whole basis of buying this product), where has this been my whole life? Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. The color is such a pretty honey-golden hue without being too powerful on my very fair complexion. This is the best highlighter I have used. Super blend able (a must), perfect for face, brows, cupids, nose, I just can't say enough. Super pretty on décolletage as well! I even applied it on my shins after a little fun in the sun, made my legs looks amazing. If you don't own this product yet, you need to by it this minute!

Easy

I like to use this as a bronzer because the color isn't that dark shades perfectly. Stuff has a long shelf life and last forever. Was a little uneasy about the color, I really think this goes good on everyone shade. I'm getting in a four out of five stars just because I like Smashbox his products the best for shading

This is a staple in my beauty bag

I have SO many highlighters and this one is still a fave for an inner corner and cheek highlight! It reminds me a little of Nylon from MAC just not as intense.

Finally...a product I love.
Purchased

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I use it to highlight above my cheekbones and bridge of nose. I've gotten a lot of compliments. It's made my makeup look fresher. It's just enough color with not a lot of shimmer.

Versatile!

Not only is it the perfect highlighter, but it's also amazing to put on the inner corner of your eye as an eye shadow to add a pop and make your eyes look larger!

Instantly became a daily necessity

I had forgotten about this product until The Balm had their Cyber Monday sale and I picked it up for half off. The Balm is a little under my radar but come to find out this highlighter is on tons of best of/holy grail/must have lists. And now it's on mine- I have used it every day since it arrived in December! I use a MAC duo fiber brush to apply to the tops of my cheekbones (the brush keeps it light- I would not try applying with a regular powder brush). I also apply it to the center of my lids to finish off my eyes and give depth to my lids, and I use my finger to sort of press & blend into the cupids bow area. Truly a multi-use product and a great value because you get a ton. However, I doubt a full compact will last long enough to use all of it...

My gripes are the packaging and durability. My first compact was really hard to pry open and one morning I dropped it while trying. I knew that would happen eventually. Instant ruination! This powder does not like to be dropped or even jostled. Don't even think about putting this in your purse, and be cautious when traveling. But the staying power makes purse touchups largely unnecessary. Anyways, I love Mary Loumanizer so much I was on Amazon ordering another within a couple hours because I couldn't stand being without it.
