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.

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

great luminizer

Love the balm products but this one is great...just the right amount of shimmer without being over the top

Loved it
Purchased

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.

Shimmer with Flexibility
Sampled

At first I was excited to use this product as a simple eyeshadow, especially since my other products were out. The subtle shimmer and great pop it gave my normal eyeshadow routine was a great addition. I was very happy with how happy long it lasted, no smudging or rubbing off after a long day. It also worked great to mix up my routine on my cheekbones or the highlight various features. A great product, I plan to maintain as a permanent part of my beauty routine!

I really loved the way this product made my eyes look bright and bushy tailed when I did not feel the same! The package is also fun and cute.

Too Shiny

I don't care for this. Its just too shimmery for me. Looks like you're a Twilight character. But I'm just not that into highlights to begin with!

Fab Highlighter
Sampled

With a lot of highlighters and shimmers, it can be tough to get the right amount of...saturation, I guess? This is the first highlighter that I felt packed enough punch and didn't disappear quickly. It goes on smoothly and adds just the right amount of highlight.
