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).

Lovely golden highlighter
Sampled

I really like this highlighter/eyeshadow. It has a nice golden sheen to it, but it's not over-the-top gold (not yellow gold). The photo online makes the color look matte, but it is comparable in shimmer to stila Kitten eye shadow (for ex.). I'm wearing it on my eyes and cheekbones, and while I usually go for more pink-based highlighters, this one is very pretty!

Great color!
Sampled

I have fair skin so its hard to me to find a light shimmer for my eyes. This color was great not too heavy or over the top. A great spice to my eye palette.

Good texture and sheen
Sampled

This was the first highlighter I've ever tried and I like it a lot. It looks awfully like good eyeshadow in the package, but goes one much more translucent. It must be milled finer or something. It adds a very subtle pop to your face. I am not sure this is exactly the right tone for my face (I am extremely fair), but I will definitely finish the sample and play around with other highlighters.

great highlighter
Sampled

I just recently discovered the art of using highlighter on your face, and this is the perfect product for that. I use it under my eyebrows and on my cheekbones. I haven't used it as an eyeshadow yet. But it is a color I am willing to try. Overall, this is a win.

perfect highlighter
Sampled

This is just what I was looking for. I was about to go start my search since I just ran out of of subtle, shimmery highlighter. This is very light but has great reflection when the light catches it. Absolutely love it. Not crazy about the case - not very secure.

Use in moderation!

Gorgeous, very shimmery. The Betty Lou manizer is great too if Mary Lou seems too light for your skin tone.

Love this stuff!

I am obsessed with this stuff! It highlights perfectly without being too obviously sparkly like some highlighters. Combines great with blush/bronzer to give me a nice glow

Wonderful

I love that the highlight is slight and easy to work with, I don't have a cakey look at all! Loved how it highlighted my brow and my lips!

Southern Belle and a shimmer
Sampled

I live in the south matte products are our best friend so therefore we don't use anything extra to make our skin dewey because 9 times out of 10 we will be "dewey" by the time we open the door and step outside. But this product was beautiful on and multi tasking. It really gave my southern matte face alittle extra glow that wasn't from the heat!
