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.

Was so excited for this sample- I didn't peek but had just been looking at this product online. Love the packaging. It is a great eyeshadow! Probably won't use for added shimmer but will be a go-to for highlighting and eyeshadow. Very close to another fav of mine: Stila's kitten eyeshadow.

Great Multi-Purpose Product

This came in an adorable sample size. I've never used a luminizer before and I was really excited to get this sample. It makes a really great eye shadow too! Will definitely buy the full size when this awesome sample runs out.

Pretty Awesome:)

I really liked the sample presentation of this product. When I put it on my cheeks, it tends to look pretty rough towards the end of the day. I do like to use this as a highlighter on my brow bone.

I'm torn on this product. The packaging is definitely cute and there is more in the sample than I originally thought when I first saw it. However, depending on how you want to use it, it's difficult to apply from such small packaging. Basically, it works well if you are just using it on your browbone with an eye makeup brush. Also, I was expecting a different consistency. This feels like eyeshadow; not something I'd like to put on my cheekbones or elsewhere. I prefer Benefit's Sun Beam or High Beam over this for overall highlighting, but I did like using this on my eyes.

So glad I got this in my box. I have used it so far as a highlighter and eyeshadow and it has worked wonderfully for both. It looks excellent in photographs.

A Nice Surprise!

At first when I looked at this product, I was like "Great, I have about 15 shades that look just like this." However, I tried it out and was quite impressed! It works perfectly as a highlighter and adds a beautiful glow to cheekbones.

One disadvantage is that I absolutely love the dewy look that cream-based highlighters provide. This product will not accomplish that effect.

I'm still going to buy this luminizer because I really enjoy the sheer look and can get away with wearing it around the office. All-in-all, I would recommend buying this product for its subtle yet sexy glow.

That "ah-ha" my skin needed

Thanks again BirchBox for the amazing samples! This luminizing powder gives my face that fresh look I've been looking for. Not only is it multipurpose but it works great for each use! This is now a staple of my beauty routine and I don't leave home without it!
