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 little goes a long way
Sampled

I received the sample size of this product almost a year ago (!), and it's STILL not gone!

It's an amazing product, but I only use it on my brow bones and the inside corners of my eyes -- it's a little too shimmery for me to imagine wearing it on a larger area like my cheekbones, especially not on a daily basis.

Therefore, I can't imagine ordering it in the full size. But, it is super wearable and does what it is supposed to do. Four stars from me!

So many uses!
SampledPurchased

I love this as an eye shadow. It brightens my eyes right up. I read past reviews in which some have had shipping issues with the powder breaking up, but mine arrived intact and has been my go-to product since.

Awesome

Really love this, even more than other highlighters/luminizers I've used. I recently bought Benefit's Watts Up, but I still like this one better!

Love the Shimmer!

I use this product an eye shadow shimmer in the corner of my eyes, and love it! Brushes on evenly, doesn't streak when smeared and stays on all day.

This is the best highlighter I've tried. It's so easy to use. I apply it to my brow bone, cheek bones and inner corner of my eyes. It also lasts all day. Love it!

Good Product
Purchased

I like this product but it has one of the best reviews on the website and I am not sure what all the fuss is about. Maybe I am using it wrong? I use it as a highlighter under my brows and by the bridge of my nose between my eyes...it does the job but I don't see what sets it apart from other highlighters?

Great for Summer, A little goes a long way
SampledPurchased

This highlighter has become a staple in my makeup bag. I use it on the tops of my cheeks, on my brow bone, the inner corner of my eye, and down the bridge of my nose. It gives the perfect subtle highlight without being too obvious or shimmery.

Beautiful
Purchased

I have sensitive and blotchy skin and when I use this product, my skin looks (nearly) flawless! As Birchbox says in the listing this product does make me feel I look beautiful!
