The Balm – Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter.

Let’s talk about this gorgeous highlighter from The Balm Cosmetics! Today I’m gonna review this pretty Mary-Lou Manizer for you guys. It’s my absolute favorite!

I was looking for a good highlighter, and then I saw this one from The Balm! It’s the Mary-Lou Manizer. Let’s take a look at the packaging.

This is what it looks like, the little box it came with and the product itself! I really like the style of The Balm, it’s so 50’s I adore it!

Here is the product up close. I love the pin-up jail style,  and also the little offense board. It’s a lovely special compact.

The compact has a nice size mirror, and I really like that it’s a bigger compact. I think it’s much easier to work with. At first I didn’t really know if this highlighter was gonna work for me, because it’s quite a golden shade, and because of my light complexion I was not sure, but I was surprised that it looked quite nice on my skin even though I’m a bit pale.

Here again a little close up from the product. It is not very glittery which I like, because it’s a way more natural finish if it’s shimmery instead of glittery. You can see that it’s a champagne kind of color.

Here is a (quite heavily) swatch on my arm. It’s not blended, but in this way you can see its true performance. You can see that it’s quite golden, but that it’s a lovely sheen and looks naturel on the skin. It also blends very well in the skin and stays on good. I even have trouble taking it all off sometimes.

I love this product to bits! It looks lovely when the sun hits your face, and so natural! I really recommend this highlighter to everyone! It has the right amount of shimmer, not like some other highlighters that leaves just a streak of glitter on your face. You can also use this highlighter as an eyeshadow or as a brow-bone highlighter. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture from it when I have it on my face (my camera sometimes hates me..), but oh well I guess you’ll get the point right? So If you’re looking for a new highlighter, you definitely need to give this one a try!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and that you’ve had a nice day!

    My current favourite highlighter is a Bobby Brown which is a golden colour too. I’ve not seen this range of makeup in the UK but maybe I’ve just not noticed it but I’ll be keeping my eye out as the compact does look very cute. x

    Unfortunately the undertone of this highlighter is too yellow for my skin, so I had to donate it to my sis And she totally loves it. Great blog btw! Keep it up ❤️
