Hey guys 🙂 Today I will be reviewing the product that has received so much love from beauty gurus which made me so curious about it. 😀 So is it worth the hype?
Meet Mary-lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer that catches everybody’s eye. This highligher, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin look softer and younger while adding a subtle glow. (Taken from here)
Layer it on your lids for a luxe look, sweep it on your cheeks for a sexy sheen, or use it as an all-over finishing touch before you head out for the night.
The packaging is to die for xD it’s just so adorable. I absolutely love The balm’s packaging. They have that vintage theme. It comes with a huge mirror which is perfect for touch ups although you don’t really need a touch up. Well, it last all day long.
It’s soft and buttery. The blend-ability is amazing.
My Experience and thoughts:
It’s a champagne highlighter which is perfect for all skin colors. It is very pigmented. You have to be so careful with it 😀 especially if you have a dark skin tone. A little goes a long way. You can use a fan brush and dip it very lightly to get a natural glow like your skin is glowing from within or build it up for a glamorous night out. You only need a teeny-tiny bit and you are good to go. So, I don’t know how I can use this up in 12 months xD
You can use it to apply it on anywhere you wanna highlight 😀 For me, I use it on my cheek bones, cupid’s bow, brow bones, the bridge of my nose, inner corner of my eyes.
I was amazed by it’s staying power. As I mentioned earlier, it lasts all day although it does fade a little bit by the end of the day but that’s totally fine for me 😀

Well 😀 Do I have to say more? I absolutely love it. I can’t express how much I love this baby. Ever since I got it, I’ve been using it everyday 😀 It’s definitely worth the price. It retails for $24 at The Balm’s official website. Guys I’m telling you xD it’s worth every penny and it’s not that expensive for a high-end highlighter.
Would I repurchase? Would I recommend?
Yep! Definitely! I highly recommend it.
