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.

Subtle but Effective

The Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter is a great product. I was first of all impressed with my sample size, which was augmented by the small amount of product necessary to be effective. The highlighter is useful and is not too shimmery or overpowering. The color is also quite nice as a highlighter. I quite enjoy it.

Sparkly

Good highlighter, but sparkly. Need to blend well, and careful not to overdo it.

Really Nice!

I use this everyday. I have oily eye lids and I don't have to use a primer on my lids for this to stay in place. I'm impressed. If i didn't have 3 other products that did the same thing I would buy now. But i will be purchasing when i run out of my other products!

I liked this product. It was my favorite in a somewhat disappointing Box. It really does what it claims and "illuminates", or highlights the places you apply it. I like to use it on my eyes, under my brows, to make my eyes appear brighter.

Very good

This is a very good highlighter; however, nothing is comparable to RMS beauty's living luminizer. I do really like the fact that this highlighter doesn't appear too shimmery/sparkley on the skin or make it look real greasy.

Super sexy!

I love this shade... it has multiple uses which I like... although I haven't tried it on my cheeks/face yet. I use it either as an eye shadow or under brow highlighter now. I like that it's neutral and can be used with an array of colors.

Great highlighter
Sampled

It really does what it is supposed to do. It gives you a subtle shimmery shine where ever you put it isn't overwhelming or too glittery. I like this product I always use something to add a little shimmer to my cheekbones and this works.

I thought this highlighter was great! I never used one prior to this sample, but this product has definitely made me a believer. My only slight criticism would be when I put a little on my lips it didn't wear well. But on my face, it looked great. Had a little shimmer but just enough to look fresh. I would definitely recommend this product to others and I'm thinking about getting the full size version for myself soon!

I thought this worked great! It blended nicely. I used it both as an eyeshadow and a face highlighter and it was useful for both.

Great Find!

I think this might have been my favorite item in the October box. I am just starting to experiment with highlights and spent a little time playing with this today. I love the shade, not too white, perfect for eye brow highlight as well as cheeks and bridge of my nose. I sort of wish it was just a little bit less shiny, but of the many I have tried this is definitely ahead of the pack.
