TheBalm’s Mary Lou-Manizer Highlighter has been on my wishlist for so so long now and now I’ve got it, I haven’t been disappointed! This is the first product I’ve tried from TheBalm but I get the feeling it won’t be the last.
If you want to read more about what I have to say about this highlighter then keep reading. 🙂
Let’s start with the packaging. The packaging of all of The Balm products are well thought-out and very specific to the brand – you definitely recognise The Balm products when you see their packaging. It’s really cute and the theme is ‘Wanted’.
I love that the highlighter comes with a mahusive mirror as it makes it so much easier for touch ups, and the compact itself is small, so perfect for travel.
Golden tones definitely suit me more than pearly tones when it comes to highlighting and shimmer, and this shade is just perfect. It’s a beautiful champagne colour that is shimmery but not glittery – and I definitely appreciate that, as I can’t stand highlighters that are too shimmery and full of chunks of glitter. The highlighter is so buttery soft and you can tell that it’s a high end, high quality product.
It’s so so pigmented and you only need to tap your brush into the pan to get a strong colour. You certainly need a light hand with this product as it can be easy to go overboard, but I love the fact that it’s so pigmented as it means you don’t have to work hard to build up a beautiful sheen.
You can really sheer it down by tapping off most of the product before you sweep it onto your cheekbones, but I like a really strong highlight so I often pack it on. I’ve also used it on my cupid’s bow and it looks equally as pretty, and it also looks stunning on the inner corners of the eye.
