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.

Perfect Highlighter.

I ordered this because it had so many amazing reviews. It turns out they weren't lying. This stuff really is the perfect highlighter. It makes you look refreshed and gives your skin a perfect glow.

I got this as a sample and I used the entire thing so I had to order the full size product! It is my go-to base eyeshadow & highlighter and there really is nothing else like it! Just a subtle hint of sparkle and a pretty cream color that stays put all day. Love this product!

not what I expected
Purchased

Very shimmery. Good for an eyeshadow, I may never need another nude shimmer. Looks awful as a highlight. It makes dryness stand out even when used with a moisturizer. Save your points/money. The packaging is of course cute and sexy.

Provides a perfect glow!
Purchased

I have used bronzer and illuminating cremes to get a glow/illumination on my face, but nothing has worked as well as this product. It provides a great shimmer/glow that does not make your face look tan while the rest of your body isn't. It works with your whatever your skin tone is to provide a nice shimmer/highlight. I use this product every day and will never go back to another luminizing product.

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.

Yes yes yes!

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.
