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 weve 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 had forgotten about this product until The Balm had their Cyber Monday sale and I picked it up for half off. The Balm is a little under my radar but come to find out this highlighter is on tons of best of/holy grail/must have lists. And now it's on mine- I have used it every day since it arrived in December! I use a MAC duo fiber brush to apply to the tops of my cheekbones (the brush keeps it light- I would not try applying with a regular powder brush). I also apply it to the center of my lids to finish off my eyes and give depth to my lids, and I use my finger to sort of press & blend into the cupids bow area. Truly a multi-use product and a great value because you get a ton. However, I doubt a full compact will last long enough to use all of it...
My gripes are the packaging and durability. My first compact was really hard to pry open and one morning I dropped it while trying. I knew that would happen eventually. Instant ruination! This powder does not like to be dropped or even jostled. Don't even think about putting this in your purse, and be cautious when traveling. But the staying power makes purse touchups largely unnecessary. Anyways, I love Mary Loumanizer so much I was on Amazon ordering another within a couple hours because I couldn't stand being without it.
I have bought this twice because I loved the color and like the highlight. Both times, with normal wear and tear I opened the compact to find the product completely crushed and I was only able to use it a couple more times. I couldn't keep the pieces in the compact.
Very disappointed because I usually love this company, and I buy from them frequently!
This is by far the best highlighter I have ever tried! It's just perfect for the face and eyes. Definitely worth the money5
A lot of highlighters make you look like you are going to a disco or are just way too much for a daytime look, but this is a really nice highlighter. It can easily be mixed with your blush or even your matte shadows to give a nice glowy flush to your look without disco queen overkill. You also have the flexibility to build this product a bit for a bit more of the shimmer shimmer sparkle look for a more night time glow, as well. This is an all-around great product to have in your arsenal.5
It's simple but perfect. I use it as a highlighter and eyeshadow. A little goes a long way.5
I absolutely love this highlighter! A little goes along way and my look is not complete until I use this!5
I am absolutely obsessed with this product! The shade is absolutely amazing, I always get complements when I use it. Love it!5
I got a sample of this product and the color payoff is fabulous as well as the color! I found that it is great as a highlighter on the cheekbones, nose, etc. However, it is also a beautiful eye shadow! Definitely purchasing the full size soon!5
theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer is the best highlighter I have ever owned! It's perfect as shadow for a minimal look as well.5
This made my skin so much brighter and beautiful! It's very nicely pigmented and does wonders on my oily skin.4
