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.

Superb highlighter
Sampled

I have always had difficulty finding a good highlighter, some don't offer enough shine while many are pearly-white and artificial looking. This one has a really nice warm champagne hue and gives a nice golden glow. I especially like it for the corners of my eyes and underneath the brows. A small amount makes a big difference!

Great Highlighter, Cute Packaging
Sampled

This is a great highlighter. It works well as an daytime eyeshadow or regular highlighter. It is light on the skin and doesn't get caught in creases or wrinkles (which I unfortunately have a few of!). Packaging is VERY cute, but could use more description of actual product and uses. I especially like the simple cardboard package with the well-concealed magnet!

Surprisingly Good!!
Sampled

Honestly, i didnt like the sample size when I got it. Its not the brands fault, its Birchbox's fault for showing a picture of the full size item. Overall, I cannot complain. The color payoff is great! It blends very well and transfers from the packaging to your finger nicely. It almost has a silky feel to it. Will purchase full size!

Love it!
Sampled

I have started wearing this product every day. Most days it gets put on around 5:30 in the morning, and when I finally fall into bed, around 11 at night, it is still there looking wonderful as ever. Not only does it last, it goes on so easily, and adds just the right touch of brightness without looking glittery or overwhelming. I will be buying a full-size one of these once my sample gets low.

Subtle but Effective
Sampled

The Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter is a great product. I was first of all impressed with my sample size, which was augmented by the small amount of product necessary to be effective. The highlighter is useful and is not too shimmery or overpowering. The color is also quite nice as a highlighter. I quite enjoy it.

Good highlighter, but sparkly. Need to blend well, and careful not to overdo it.

Really Nice!
Sampled

I use this everyday. I have oily eye lids and I don't have to use a primer on my lids for this to stay in place. I'm impressed. If i didn't have 3 other products that did the same thing I would buy now. But i will be purchasing when i run out of my other products!

Awesome Product!

I absolutely loved this product. I have been using it mostly as an eyeshadow highlighter and even used it as a base color. It game my eyes a real pop. The best part about it is it really lasted all day.
