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.

For an All-over Glow!

This highlighter/luminizer is great! I just lightly touch my eye/blush brush to the surface and it picks up a bunch of product; it is also very pigmented and brightens up the whole face wherever applied (inner corners of the eyes, on top of cheek bones, etc.) and creates an all-over glow!

Sweet!
Sampled

This shade is great for all skin types as an all-over "luminizer." I swapped my sample for my usual hi-liter for my inner-eyes, under brow arch, and tops of cheeks and noticed that it stayed "luminous" all throughout the day as opposed to the typical-lunch-time-fade. Come summer time, I'll be skipping the bronzer and just sweeping my entire face and neck with a light coat of this!

Who knew highlighter was so amazing?

I had never used theBalm OR highlighter before and I'm sold! The shimmery honey color is just beautiful.

Great product. I'm a big fan of highlighter in general, and this may be my new favorite. Works well to warm up pale skin.

Nice shimmer / Neutral on Product
Sampled

I'm kind of neutral with this product. I used a kabuki brush and it just kind of stays where you start to put it on your cheek. i.e. It does not spread on very well as my other luminizer's. It provides nice shimmer.. but I'm not super thrilled with it.

Testing
Sampled

I tested the product on the top of my eyebrows. It is ok. I have a darker complexion and highlighters don't seem to show up well on my face. I'm afraid to apply too much. I have only tested it a couple of times, so I will need some more time to check it out.

Very pigmented
Sampled

Super pigmented if you wanted to utilize as an eyeshadow, but also subtle enough to use as just a highlighter. I love this product!!!
