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.

LOVED IT!

I thought the sample was small at first but then i realized you do not need that much when you use it. Its a great highlighter and eyeshadow. Very soft, easy to blend and does not have chucks of glitter. Gives a nice glow to cheeks, inner corner or under your brow.

theBalm strikes again!
Sampled

I have received samples of theBalm products before, and yet again I am impressed. The sample packaging was smart and I appreciated the ingredients list on the package itself. Many samples don't list ingredients due to the sample being so small, but theBalm didn't skimp! I have a fair complexion, so finding a highlighter that compliments my skin without feeling overly made up can be hard. The Mary Lou Manizer adds a great glow to my skin, and I feel like I could use it year-round! This is a great addition to my makeup essentials!

Illuminates but not too shiny

Great highlighter for my very fair skin. I use it around my eyes and find it doesn't crease or highlight fine lines.

Awesome Higlighter!

Mary-Lou Manizer is the best highlighter ever! I use it on my brow bones and it stays all day. The sample was a great size, but as soon as it runs out I will be buying the full size product.

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.

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
