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).

A lot for your money
Purchased

I bought this to use as a highlighter after reading all the reviews. I am so glad I took a leap and bought it without trying it. It is so pretty and really adds to your makeup. I would recommend this to anyone! I will say be careful and dab your brush before you apply because at first I didn't and it was too much in that one spot. A little goes a long way. As stated above I bought it as a highlighter but also use it as a base for eyeshadow! It has just the right amount of shimmer to show up. I love this product and will buy again when I run out! Think it will be a while though because it's a big size and you only need a little each time you use it. I'm fair skinned and it looks good so if your debating because of that I'm telling you...go for it! You won't regret it!

This balm is moist, easy to apply to lids, and shows up great on face.

Amazing luminizer!

This is one of the best luminizers I've tried! It truly does what it says and brightens up your eyes, your upper brow, your cheekbones, wherever you put it, it brightens!!

Very, very, VERY luminizing
Purchased

WAY too much shimmer for me and is too powdery for an every day, natural look. Or maybe I just don't know how to apply it. I will be sticking to a cream luminizer. Wish I had been sent the sample before I purchased the full size. I give it a C, sorry theBalm i'm usually a fan :/

Favorite BirchBox Item

I received this in one of my first birch boxes, I love this product so much. I also love the container in came in simple and small to add to my makeup bag. I would definitely recommend this highlighter.

LOVE THIS!

This is my favorite Birchbox sample that I've received in two years. I use it as a highlighter under my brow bone, and sometimes on my cheeks for days when I want glowy skin without using blush. The shimmer is just enough to brighten my face and is very very lightweight.

Fun Product
Purchased

This was the perfect product to take on my 2 1/2 week trip to China. i didn't want to lug too much makeup along so this powder made the cut because I could use it as an eye shadow and a face powder to make me appear bright and perky even though I was 100% jet lagged.

Fantastic Product
Purchased

I absolutely love this stuff! I use a little swipe across the tops of my cheekbones to finish off my makeup in the morning and it adds a wonderful highlight that is also subtle and not at all obvious. A little definitely goes a long way!
