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.

Nice.

It's a nice sample. The shimmer is subtle, and it does a nice job of brightening.

LOVE

I love love love this. I go through highlighters like crazy but sometimes I have to reapply it. This stays on very well and it doesn't take much at all!! Definitely will be buying this!

Nice Color

Overall I was not very happy with the Birchbox this month, but this was a nice addition. Love the color.

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
