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.

Great Product
Sampled

I have not stopped using this since i got it! I have olive/medium skin tone and i loved this highlighter because it was not too harsh, just a nice warm color. The shimmer is a little too much for a forehead highlighter in my opinion. Overall i will be purchasing this product again and was very excited to find a new brand.

great flattering color

I loved using this product as a highlight around my eyes. It wasn't so stark white that it looked too made up, but it was still bright enough to make a huge impact. I can't really use it all over my face, because I have oily skin and shimmer enhances that. With that said, I would still recommend it highly as an eye make up.

Fantastic Multi-purpose product

I got this sample in my first ever Birchbox, and a new addiction has begun. This 3-in-1 product is so very versatile and flattering. Whether I need a light brush of it on my eyelids to give me a pick up during the day, or a full on shimmer for those nights out on the town, this is my go-to solution. Mary-Lou is my new best friend!

Great shadow!

I love this as a shadow. I have green eyes and this touch of golden shimmer adds the perfect wow. Beautiful shade.

TheBalm cosmetics review

Loved this luminizing powder! I used this as an eyeshadow and it not only brightened up my eyes but also stayed on all day! Great sample size too - thanks Birchbox!

Pretty color - good texture

I love the color but I wish I had that summer tan to go along with it- I think it would be such a gorgeous cheek highlighter with a tan since it's pretty gold-hued. Until then, I'll be using it as an eyeshadow which goes well with my green eyes and I love the smooth texture. The packaging is super cute and I'll def consider buying this once my sample runs out.

Looks great on tan skin

I don't really use this to highlight my face too often, but it really makes my eyes pop. I use this on the corners and under my eye, and I can get that sleek eye shape. This is incredibly blendable and very smooth, so when I do use it on my face, I feel comfortable knowing that I don't look over-glittery. It's best used with a matte bronzer/ contour shade because it has some intense shimmer to it, so that is why I prefer it on my eyes instead of my face.

Very pretty!
Sampled

I used this sample as a highlighter under my brows and also along my collar bone. It's not overly sparkly and offers just the right amount of shimmer. If you use a primer underneath it lasts even longer. Loved it!
