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.

I've used other highlighters in the past, specifically Watts Up from Benefit and I find this one to blend better with my tan skin. It is a powder but the color and shimmer are very dense. It also has a smoothing/ airbrush effect versus cream based highlighter that clog pores. I used it for a night out dancing and it stayed on through it all. I would definitely consider purchasing the full size product.

Great Highlighter!

This is a great neutral tone for those looking to keep their makeup applications natural with a touch of flair! It goes great with every skin tone and really highlights your features without looking overdone. Great for every day or to make an outfit a bit more festive!

nice shimmer

I dont usually use anything with shimmer except maybe on my brow bone but I used this to highlight my cheeks like Birchbox recommended and I have to admit I kinda like it. Over a bronzer this gives a very dewy pretty look.

nice neutral highlighter
Sampled

This highighter has a nice warm neutral color that makes it very wearable. And it brightens without high school-ish 'sparkle'.

luminizer

first, the packaging this sample came in was so cute. I loved it so much, so I thank the balm for that because it made me love it that much more. Also this product is pretty good. I would recommend this to others. Although, it is very obvious that you are wearing luminizer, especially if you wear this on your cheekbones. It is very iridescent, so if you like very subtle highlighing this is not for you.

I was pleasantly surprised to receive this in my October box, and can't wait to use it until it's gone!

Pleasantly surprised!

Upon first receiving this product in my box, I wasn't sure that I would actually use it. I looked over it for the first couple of weeks, and then one day decided I would use it. And I really really liked it! I have been using it as a highlighter putting it just below my eyebrows and also at the corner of my eye. It definitely brightens up my eyes. Now that I've used it once, I use it almost every day! Would definitely recommend.

Nice!

I really dig this. I've used it every day since I got it, and will purchase. It's a great highlighter. I dont' use it as eyeshadow because I mostly use my Naked pallette, but it's great to dust over the cheek bones or the chin/tip of nose to add that nice little oomph to a look!

Cute packaging and great product!

This is a fun and easy to use product! My age group tends to not use a whole lot of "sparkly" things, but just a dab in the corner of each eye really makes eye makeup pop!
