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.

Lovely gold but what's the point?

This product is a gorgeous color, with the finest, nicest gold shimmer I have ever seen. However, even after watching the birchbox video and testing out all their ideas for how to use it, I just don't think this product will have any play in my makeup routine. I love using a bronzing illuminator along with my base and blush each day, but this shimmer without much tint just makes you look sparkly... it's strange. So, if you aren't already a luminizer user, I'd say think twice.

I was just recently introduced to the idea of highlighter, and am thankful for this birchbox because it is fun to try out. The highlighter works well and enhances features of your skin.

It is safe to say that I am in love with this! I have been looking for a powder highlighter and then I got this in my box and fell in love! It looks great on my skin!

Awesome Shimmer
Sampled

I love a good shimmer product, but hate glitter in it, it's hard to find something that balances that look. This product does it though. I have used it every morning around my eyes as a highlighter and I really like it. The only downside is because of the shimmer it can make you look a little oily shiny (if you tend toward that) earlier than usual.

pretty tone but very delicate

if you like kitten from stila or other multi-use shimmer products that complement the face, then you will probably love the tone on this one. i had tested it out a long time ago but the sample in store was cracked and messy which makes me nervous to use it during travel, etc. universally flattering tone and goes on smooth.

Excellent Highlighter! A+

his is a fantastic highlighter. I use this daily now with my Revlon Highlighter/Eye Primer pen and it makes my eyes look so much more bright. It's the perfect color so it doesn't look un-natural. Stays on all day with the primer too.

Wonderful!

I really enjoy the natural shine it gives. On lazy days all I need is a tinted moisturizer and this highlighter above my cheekbones and I'm ready to go. Has nice pigmentation and works really well on my fair skin.

great highlight

Very shimmery and highly pigmented luminizer. I love it. It glides on nicely. I use it for the inside of my eye and brow bone.

I absolutely love this highlighter! I use it under my eyebrows and in the corners of my eyes. It really brightens and opens them up and makes them look bigger!. The packaging is very cute as well. i would definitely recommend!
