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.

A makeup bag mainstay
Sampled

It's about time I reviewed this, seeing as i've bought and used 2 full sized units since I got the sample. I use it for everything: eyeshadow, highlighter, lip shimmer, put it on my shoulders and collar bone before going out for the evening. It's just the right amount of shimmer and light enhancement without the little girl glitter look that some products give. I keep a compact in my car for quick little makeup touches when i'm in a hurry.

I love this highlighter! I wear it everyday. It is silky and not glittery, but a peachy gold shimmer that looks healthy and pretty. If applied right, it looks like no more than a healthy glow which is exactly what I was looking for. The packaging is so cute. It is a tad more expensive than what I would normally pay for something like this, but it's a large generous size and I haven't made a dent in it yet. I anticipate it lasting a long while.

Too Shiny!
Purchased

I was super excited to try this product, especially since it was rated as one of the best selling products on BirchBox. However, it's super SHINY--waaaaay too shiny. I think it would be fun to use when going out on a fun night out dancing, but for everyday work wear, it's a little too crazy.

Holy Grail Highlighter
Sampled

There is no highlighter more lovely...highly pigmented, a little goes a long way! You can go for a subtle daytime sheen or turn up the volume for a night out. The only negative is they give you too much! I can't imagine every having to buy more but the product is simply stunning.

pretty highlighter!
Purchased

I really love this powder!! I am too old for anything too shimmery or glittery. This powder is neither. It adds the perfect amount of highlight and glow, without being overdone. I use it as a highlighter, and as an eye shadow. It's perfect for days when I don't have much time to get myself ready (which is most days!) and I just swipe some on my eyelids, and inside corners of my eyes, and then cheekbones. Looks very natural. But hear this: A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY!! Learned that the hard way the first time I used it. It really doesn't take much.

Nice and easy
SampledPurchased

I'm a huge fan of this! I love using this as an eye shadow, especially in the summer when I don't wear much makeup. It's a perfect light shimmer. It's great as a top coat for darker colors to soften and brighten it up. I like a little dusting on my cheeks on top of or in place of blush. It's a huge case so it will last a long time. Well worth the money!

Great all-purpose highlighter!
SampledPurchased

I love how versatile this product is. It's easy to use as a highlighter or eyeshadow, and it doesn't have too much shimmer. My only complaint is that it seems to crack easily in the pan.
