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.

Finally got my hands on this!

I was so excited to see this in my birchbox! I have been dying to try the much talked about Mary-Lou! I completely see what all the hype is about, I bought this. It gives such a nice glow that is subtle yet makes you appear healthier ;)

Love the name & packaging - great selling point! I strongly recommend, you won't be disappointed. Powdered Highlight/Illuminating products give the best control & user friendly application!

great!

Once I figured out where to use the product I loved it! I know it was a small package but I wish this great product's packaging was more descriptive of how to use the product.

Lovely Lou Manizer!

Great product! Worth the money but you could probably find cheaper alternatives that give the same result.

Stay Strong

Great staying power and works for different skin colors. If you put it near corner of eye, on top of cheek it really helps you to look awake.

So shiny!

I really liked this shiny luminizer. It gives a nice shimmer to cheek bones and eye lids. Very fun to use!

Subtle, Beautiful, But Fades Quickly

Imagine my surprise getting this product in my October 2012 box! I love products that are multi-purpose and this is certainly no exception. While I love it as eyeshadow, it's best function is as a highlight. It creates a golden hue on my fair skin that can't be replicated by anything else and leaves me looking refreshed and lovely! My one complaint is that it fades far too quickly--I have reapply by lunch time if I want to keep getting compliments.

Great Highlight

Initially, I wasn't sure about this, but it is so easy to apply and instantly adds a light shimmer. It isn't overly sparkly and really adds a warm glow.

Love it

I love this as a cheek highlight & on the inner corner of the eye! Great payoff in color. The only dislike is the staying power, but with a powder I don't think you can change it. If this was in liquid I would totally be in love!

LOVE IT!

This product is great. As a face highlight it is a bit too shimmery for my liking, but I love using it as a brow bone highlight and shadow. SO pretty! Plus, the sample size is adorable!

great

Very nice color pay off. Makes you look like you have a sun kissed glow! I love it! Wear it as an eyeshadow, highlight, blush. I apply it with a blush brush.
