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.

So glad birchbox introduced me to this product. I use this everyday as an eyeshadow. Just a bit in the inner corners of my eyes makes me look wide awake! Sometimes I will blend it with other eyeshadows to "tone them down" if they are too bright or too dark. It provides just the right amount of shimmer. The full size product is huge so it will last a long time.

Best powder highlighter

I've been this product for almost three years now and I love it! Like all TheBalm products Mary-Lou Manizer has an INSANE color payoff! Be careful not to use too much! When you've mastered the lighter touch the highlighter looks very natural and attractive on the skin.

Beautiful highlighting powder
Purchased

Very similar to Mac's By Candlelight, but very very very shimmery! Highly recommend! Absolutely gorgeous as a brow highlight, not to mention inner eye, cheekbone, Cupid's bow, and t!

Great highlighter and eyeshadow for this pale girl
Purchased

I have been using it a highlighter eyeshadow shade as well as on the inner corners of my eyes and around my eyebrows. I apply it after my bare minerals matte powder and it lasts pretty much all the work day. It isn't too shimmery for day and you get a lot of product. I've been applying it with my fingers and a brush. It goes on very smooth. And the mirror that is attached to it is a great little perk. Great highlighter/multi use product.

Nice, but not for my skin tone.
Purchased

I do like this product, but I don't think it is the right luminizing powder for my skin tone. I have olive skin and I am part Italian so personally it didn't seem to work that well with my skin. I love that it's easy to use and put on. I put it almost every where. On my eyes, for a quick shimmer, cheekbones, and if I am going out on my chest. I think I would stick to a more bronzed illuminator for the next time though, especially going into summer.

Wish I had bought this sooner

This stuff is seriously amazing. I use it as a highlighters for my cheek bones and even on my collar bones and shoulders. It's so versatile! I also use it as an everyday eyeshadow when I don't feel like actually spending time on eye makeup. I have fair skin I was worried how this would look but it's so natural and not overly shimmery. I love TheBalm!

Beautiful!
Purchased

So pretty but not too shimmery which is nice. I love that it is multi-purpose and can be used both on you cheeks or as a highlighter for your eyes. Worth the price because the product is quite large.

I thought this was good used as an all-over shimmer but not so much as an eyeshadow. It's way too light to be an eyeshadow. When you apply it, it goes on smooth.

Great Produce Even for Noobs

I bought this last summer and use it all of the time; it is a holy grail product! By the looks of it, this compact will last forever!!!!!!! I would definitely suggest using a light swipe from a very soft bristled brush to get the best look. You can use it as a highlighter, eyeshadow, and under lip gloss for a cool look -- the Lou Manizer has a long wear time, even in the summer or a night out! Definitely worth the $$$, honey!

This is magic!

I love love love this product. I used my sample up completely and needed to buy a full size. This works wonderfully for any type of make up style you are going for that day. Use it as a highlighter on your cheek bones, under eyebrows, or enhance your eyes. Wear red lipstick? Try brushing this on your cupids bow...amazing! Must have in anyone's Beauty Bag!
