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.

This is a nice luminizer. The texture is soft and almost creamy. It gives a glow without glitter, which is refreshing. It has a bit of a gold tint, so I think it would work best on warm toned skin. As I have mature skin, I keep the glitter to a minimum, but this is usable in small doses. I think it would look great on younger skin.

Great, as always from TheBalm!

This is a flattering color for most skin tones, and has a wonderful texture and color payoff. Adds a nice shimmer to my medium toned skin.

So versatile!

I love how many different ways you can use this! I seldom use any sort of bronzer/blush product for everyday use, but shimmer I get from this product is just subtle and natural enough while still having a great effect. And it works great as an eye-accenter as well! After watching the tutorial, I plan on trying it out with lips next... so many possibilities!

I absolutely LOVE the packaging! The magnetic strip is great and it's just amazingly adorable. The highlighter itself is perfect! Great color and just the right amount of shimmer. LOVE!

very promising....

I only started using highlighters recently, and this makes it very easy to experiment. It's virtually accident-proof so even if it goes on with unintended consequences, it still looks nice.

Beautiful and long-lasting

Mostly use this as an eyeshadow as I find it a bit too shimmery for my skin but I love that this lasts all day!

Great product!

I love this product! Just a little bit can make certain areas such as the eyes pop and look fantastic. My eyes are tiny so just applying a little around the eyes next to the eye makeup makes the colors stand out a bit more!

Great sample product
Sampled

I wanted to brag on the actual sample here. While the product gives a very elegant shine and shimmer, the sample size was even more pleasing. I will be using my sample for a good while. The packaging is convenient and sturdy. The generous sample size is the only reason that I won't be purchasing this product any time soon.

Love this!

I love this color! I apply some colored eye liner along the lashes of my upper eye lid, and then throw some of this shimmery goodness over it. Such a great, light color that really brightens up your eyes easily.

Flawless!

I love this powder! It is my go to face shimmer if I want to highlight my cheeks and is also a fantastic eye shadow. It is bright and shimmery, but doesn't look to dramatic. You can wear this day and night. I will be buying the full size product! Thanks, Birchbox!
