theBalm® cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer® Highlighter, Shadow & Shimmer

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.

Awesome product!

I'm so glad I got this in my birchbox. I have used it everyday as a highlighter shadow at the very top under my brow. I used darker shades on my lower lid and in the crease so this sets off the top of my lid perfectly. I didn't realize you can use it on your face as well so I will be trying that tomorrow. Love it!

It is a lifesaver! It really illluminates and highlights your face and eyes. It has just the right amout of shimmer without being overwhelming. I love it!

Love it!

I wasn't really sure what to expect when I first tried this product. When I opened it, it just looked like a shimmery gold eyeshadow, but once I applied it, it was a beautiful champagne color and not too shimmery at all! I love the smooth texture. I apply it to my eye lids, inside corners, and a little but on my brow bone. It really brightens up my eyes!

Subtle yet satisfying

I usually apply lighter eyeshadow under my brows but I've never used anything so radiant and flattering. Also - the suggestion of using the powder above the lips was also very flattering - so happy to come across this trick.

I totally love Mary-Lou Manizer! This was the most exciting product in my December Birchbox! I could not wait to try it out. After trying it out I found this is just what I needed to brighten up my face and eyes! It looks great on my pale skin! xoxo

Nifty product

I'd heard good things about this highlighter, and was even planning to buy it, but was pleasantly suprised when my Birthbox came with a sample. The texture of this highlighter is fairly crumbly, but it imparts a nice glow and is not too sparkly. I'm enjoyed my sample, and plan to purchase when done!

Eyeshadow Shimmer

I use it every day and I will buy more as soon as it runs out! I use it mostly as eyeshadow around the brow area and I have been more than pleased. It stays put well and isn't too shimmery... just enough to reflect a bit and not look overdone.

Perfect for any occasion!

I'm using it every day! It is perfect for the day and evening make-up. Applying it to the chick bones or to the inner corner of the eyes gives that really nice shimmer. Love it!

Makes the perfect eyeshadow!

Initially I didn't know this product was a highlighter, so I used it as an eyeshadow. It's a perfect shimmery gold that makes my blue eyes pop when paired with a dark brown eyeliner. Once I discovered it was a highlighter I started using it on my nose, browbone, and cheekbones and I get a lot of compliments over the subtle sheen. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a dewy, shimmery finish. Would be perfect for girls night out or holiday parties!
