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 love this color. The shimmeriness isn't too overpowering or metallic and it blends so nicely when I put it on top of my cheekbones. It's also the perfect lip accent for my top lip.

10/10 recommended.

Universal Highlighter

This highlighter is great on many skin tones and it's not chalky or glittery. A little goes a long way so just use this sparingly. My favorite way to use it is with a fan brush because it picks up just the right amount of product and distributes it nicely on the high points of my cheek bones. It just gives you a beautiful natural glow!

I'm loving this highlighter. Looks great day and night. Cute packaging. You only need a little bit for a great effect so it will last a long time.

Very pigmented
Purchased

I loved this product! I got this product through Birchbox and it came within just a few days. It is really pigmented and you only need a little bit. I used a fan brush and a contouring brush and the fan brush make the highlighter look more natural. Definitely recommend.

Love!!!

I use this all over my face, and it really makes any look become radiant. I also love it as a shimmery shadow base. I hadn't seen my dad for about half a year, and when he saw my complexion (I had used my Mary-Lou Manizer for highlighting), he said my skin looked better than ever. A must have to add some shimmer to any kit!

Love it!

I actually got the other color (the slightly orange one) in my Birchbox a few months ago and loved how it brightened up my face, but it was a bit too dark, so I took a chance on Mary-Lou, and it's exactly what I wanted. I use it to lighten up under my eyes and play up my cheekbones, and this tone doesn't show against my fairly pale skin. It's a great, sturdy package as well, so I'm not worried I'm going to shatter it if I drop it.

Amazing luminizing highlighter
Purchased

I had heard many wonderful things about this product. As a very light and oily-skinned person, I've never understood the purpose of highlighters. But online I read that this can be used on very pale skin to add luminescence. I use it on my cheekbones primarily, and it really works quite well. A tiny bit can add a subtle sheen, or you can really pack it on for a more extreme effect. Also nice for inner eye corners. I'm now a convert. I also appreciate how generous the packaging is; even with everyday use, I barely see a dent in the product!
