theBalm makes so many great face products, it’s hard to choose a favorite. However, I adore Mary-Lou Manizer, a three in one highlighter, shadow and all over face shimmer. I only use it as a highlighter, but plan to test it as a shadow soon!
It’s described as a honey-hued luminizer that helps skin look softer and younger while giving it a subtle glow. I find this to be an accurate description. I swipe this on my cheekbones and instantly my skin looks younger and dewy, without using greasy. It brightens my entire face so I appear more awake. Yes it is shimmery, but as long as you are conservative with it, that won’t be a problem. I use a fan brush to apply a small amount to my cheekbones and I don’t notice the shimmer at all.
The packaging is adorable, as are all products from theBalm, and comes with a very generously sized mirror. This product is very reasonably priced at $24 for 8.5grams. A little goes a long way with this so I don’t foresee having to replace this anytime soon.
