Mary-Lou Manizer

Thebalms description:

Meet Mary-Lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey hued luminiser that catches everybody's eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow.  

Thebalms directions:
Layer theBalm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer on your lids for luxe-looking lashes, 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.

At £17.50 this product leans more towards the high end spectrum of makeup rather than the drugstore brands. However Mary-Lou Manizer is extremely pigmented. Although the price is high so is the quality! Plus because the highlighter is so pigmented a little goes a long way and in the long run I would say the highlighter is good value for money.

How I apply it:

I swirl the Real Techniques Setting Brush into the highlighter and then tap of the excess and apply it to my cheekbones. Occasionally I will mix the highlighter with my blush and my bronzer if I want a really glowy look. I also like to use it on the arch of my brow, the bridge of my nose and on my cupids bow. I love the subtle luminosity and how well it works to help accentuate my features. So basically I love looking like a disco ball.


theBALM are known for there cute and quirky packaging and this product doesn't disappoint. The packaging is always colourful and have cute designs on this and the quirky names really do make the product slightly more enjoyable to use.


I think the only bad thing about this highlighter is that, because it is so highly pigmented it is so easy to go overboard with. But I hardly consider that a problem. So if you're looking for something thats maybe a little bit higher in price but great quality, I really would recommend trying this highlighter. It compliments so many different skin tones and really helps warm up the complexion as well as bring light to your face.
