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.

True Healthy Glow!

Most luminizers tend to be glittery so I am very picky when it comes to finding the right one. I am so lucky to have gotten this in one of my boxes because it is so gorgeous. It is shimmery enough to give off a glow but subtle enough that it is just that, a healthy glow. I use this on my cheekbones, under my brow, and as an inner corner accent. The color itself is a beautiful sheeny-champagne color that shows up on my light/medium toned skin perfectly. It could have better staying power but other than that it is gorgeous.

Great color for everyone!

I have very fair skin and was worried how this would look on me-but I can say I am pleasantly surprised after using it! The color was very strong and bright on the palette but looked great on my skin.
Give it a try!

Great color

Good highlighting color, especially for brow bones and above cheekbones. Brightens up any makeup and stays put for the day.

Good product

I was actually surprised at the quality of this product. The color was great and it fits easily into a purse. Great product to use as an all-over or just a touch up!

Great as a shadow

Seeing as how I don't really use highlighter, I use this as an eyeshadow. Specifically in the inner corners of my eyes. It looks great and the shimmer isn't overwhelming.

But at $24, I don't think I'd buy it when I can get similar shadows for much cheaper.

Just enough shimmer

I don't typically wear much more than liner and mascara during the work week but I've found that a little of this on my brow bone has really helped brighten my eyes in the wintertime.

Gorgeous color

This is a very pretty golden color. It's great for using with other colors as eyeshadow or on its own. I haven't tried it on my cheeks, but I think I would personally have to use it with bronzer just because it would stand out too much on its own.

flatters everyone!

If you use it as an eyeshadow, this color flatters every skin tone! It's a great easy color for everyday work wear or for going out. You can also use it as a highlighter on the top of your cheekbones which is great! Texture is kinda slippery, which is good.
