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 didn't realize how awesome this was until I used it as eye shadow... this works great as a highlighter, but even better as eyes shadow...and how sweet and convenient to have the two in one!

Holy Grail Highlighter
Purchased

I absolutely adore this product! I bought this a few months ago after seeing so many wonderful reviews on beauty blogs and youtube reviews and it does not disappoint. It's versatile, and gives my skin the perfect glow. It works wonderfully with my fair complexion, unlike some highlighters which have an odd or dark hue. It looks dewy without making my already oily/combo skin look too greasy. I don't even know what else to say about it other than that I never want to go without it. I'm really thankful that Birchbox has this product. <3

I love this product. It is versatile, subtle, yet effective. I cannot say enough good things about this product. The day I run out of it without at least having more on order will not be a a happy day.

So pretty!

I mostly use this as an eyes shadow. It looks good day or night and I have received so many compliements. The sample that came in my birch box lasted a LONG time. I just purchased and do not foresee needing it for a long time. Great product!

PERFECT.

Like others on this product's review, I saw this product on a makeup artist's (Lauren Beauty) makeup tutorial! So versatile for everyday use. It's subtle sheen is a great pairing with a matte blush. No irritation from the ingredients with my sensitive/acne prone skin either.

Awesome Multi-tasker

I absolutely love this product. I own every highlighter in this balm collection and this one is my favorite! I always use this to highlight my face(with a fluffy tapered brush or fingertips depending on the look) and it gives the perfect glow without being too glittery or overboard. It also has pretty good staying power, especially with a primer! I use this in the inner corner of my eyes and brow bone with UD potion and it still looks great after 3+ hours of being in the ocean!

Best highlight ever..

By far my favorite highlighting product on the market. The formula is buttery and very easy to blend.
There is tons of product in the compact, and you barely need any to add a gorgeous glow to your skin.
You do have to be careful when you apply, because if you are too heavy handed you can end up looking greasy or extremely shiny.
I'm a huge fan of the product, can not stress enough how much I love it.
