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.

Great as an eyeshadow!

Super cute “luminizer” you’re meant to be able to use all over your face. I am not a fan of anything that makes my face look shiny – it’s not a good look on me. Or, I think, on most women who are not either at a photo shoot or on a runway. But that’s just personal opinion, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, I DID use it as an eyeshadow and it is DARLING! A lovely, shiny gold color, just enough to be noticeable without being overbearing or too fancy. A perfect every day shadow. My main issue with this one is the cartoon woman on the front of the packaging, who looks just like this girl I used to know and hate. I might scribble her face out or something to make it easier for me to use it. Otherwise, a great product.

golden highlight

I loved this product. The golden color highlights my skin nicely but it's not too overwhelming. I also really like the texture. It is very smooth and goes on nicely.

Perfect

This luminizing powder is perfect. Perfect color, perfect amount of shimmer, just perfect. It's not overbearing, which some shimmers are. Very well-balanced.

Love this!!!

This highlighter is fantastic! You can use it all over (cheeks, brow bone, eyes). It isn't too glittery, just the perfect amount of shimmer. It's very natural and can be used day or night. I highly recommend it!

Ecstatic!

After hearing about this product countless times on youtube I was so excited to see a sample in my box. Might I add its absolutely worth the hype! I mostly use this as a brow highlight and an inner corner highlight and its fabulous. It would definitely work as a great shadow for some layering when trying to do a festive holiday look. Can't wait to try out all the possibilities!

Can't get enough
Purchased

This shimmer has completely changed the way I'm doing my eye make up. It's the perfect shade to high light brow bones, which is tough because I have extra pale red head skin, and I'm loving experimenting with it all over my face!

Love

I didn't previously use a highlighter, but after trying this one- I'm definitely sold. I tend to have dark circles around my eyes, but this makes you look so much more awake. It's great for everyday wear without looking too done-up for work, and easy to carry around. It's perfect for winter months when you're feeling a little pale/dull. If you are unsure about how to apply, Birchbox has an awesome video tutorial.

Love this product

I got the Mary-Lou Manizer in my October box and I love this product. You can use it for so many different things. The color is perfect for eye shadow and it is works well as a highlighter too.
