The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer | Review

February 2, 2016

I got The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer for Christmas because there was such a hype around it and I love a good 'ol highlighter! I like to shine bright on a daily basis. This is the first product I've tried from The Balm and it's safe to say that I'm dyyyying to try some more now after loving this one so so so much.

Firstly, lets talk packaging. How cute is it? I love that it's slightly 50s because I love the style of the 50s! The packaging is so beautiful, strong and compact with a decent sized mirror inside. It's the perfect size for your handbag! Because the Mary Lou-Manizer is so highly pigmented there is plenty of product to do you a very long time so your cheeks will always be glowing! When it comes to this highlighter, a little goes a long way!

The Mary Lou-Manizer is a smooth and extremely pigmented highlighter with a creamy consistency, making it easy to blend and allows for a more natural glow. I love this shade because it's a gorgeous champagne-gold colour which looks gorgeous on medium to dark skin. It gives off a healthy and subtle glow, but is also buildable if you want a more noticeable glow. It has a gorgeous shimmer to it but is not overpowering and has absolutely no glitter in sight which I love! It doesn't leave your skin looking greasy or sweaty either like some cheaper highlighters can. 

Since getting this highlighter for Christmas, I've rarely reached for anything else because this product just suits my skin tone down to a T. I've been forcing everyone in sight to try it because it just looks so breathtaking on the skin. 

I was never one for being very into highlighters but since using this I will never look back. I use it every day and I can't speak highly enough about it. I would honestly tell anyone to go out and buy this ASAP because it is the perfect highlighter in my opinion.
