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. We wear it when we want to sport a unified look that plays up our best features (think model-esque cheekbones and alluring eyes).

I'm using this for a highlighter, foundation, shadow.... it is really great, versatile and I love the packaging it came in! Adorable and really great product! Adds just a hint of shimmer, and because it's so versatile, it would be great for travel!

Wow!

This is my favorite highlighter EVER. The color is perfect, the texture is really smooth and easy to work with, it's highly pigmented. I can pop this on my cheeks and under my brows and it lasts all day long. This one is a keeper. The best part is that I can use it as an eyeshadow and put it all over my lids for an easy, glowing look.

Glowing finish

I. Love. This. Just the right amount of sparkle here. Goes on soft and silky and easy to blend. I can see myself using this every season and as a highlighter or shadow. Wow, Birchbox! Keep bringing on The Balm products!

Great product

I have seen this brand sold at places like TJ Maxx, but never gave it much attention. I was very pleased to find it in this month's Birchbox. The illuminizer adds just the right touch when applied on the brow or cheek bones. I plan on purchasing this item very soon!

This is about as good of a luminizer as any drugstore luminizer. Can look like clown makeup if you don't spend a lot of time really blending well. Nothing out of the ordinary--just a more expensive version of what you can get at any drugstore

Loved it

I unexpectedly fell in love with this, which I use as a blush. I never thought to use a warm gold as a blush before, but it works so perfectly with my skin tone.

Three Uses for One Product

What I liked:
There is more than one way you can use this product, which is nice. Even though I'm more of an eye shadow girl, if I plan on experimenting with highlighter, I can turn to this.

What could be improved on:
As a shadow, the shade would work best in the summer months because of its light, golden tones.

Overall satisfaction:
If you like the idea of convenience, this might be the product for you, as you can get a lot of uses out of this.
