the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, $24
Now I get it. People have been telling me how good this is for years. Let me tell you if you have been hiding under a rock when it comes to this that Mary-Lou is a BEAST. She looks amazing on. I can’t imagine that this product in some way wouldn’t work for everyone. There I said it.
From thebalm.com website:
Meet Mary-Lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer that catches everybody’s eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow.
How to Apply: 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.
So I opened this with a bit of a chip on my shoulder. I love and have a lot of highlighters. I am rarely amazed at this point. I was like how good can it be? Well I popped this baby open and my itchy finger was ready to swatch. I usually can hold back but not this time. I had to touch it. I was thinking very pretty but what is going on here…why all the hype?
This product is PIGMENTED. It looks amazing on. I poo poo’d the suggestion on the box that this looks nice on the eyelids but it does! I love me some Mary-Lou. Now I know why everyone has been telling me to try it. It makes ya glow! Check it out if your in need for something quite universal. It’s a great pick for someone that doesn’t have many or any highlighters I think. Because it might just be all you need. Or if you are highlighter obsessed your going to want this too!
I know….. LOVE this stuff. I started out with Nars Albatross, and I like this one MUCH better. And thanks to YOUR The Balm SALE notification a while back, I got it on sale to boot!
Oh wow I didn’t like Albatross as much as this one! And now I know what the hype is. Cult following understood lol!
Yeah, I haven’t touched the Albatross since I got the Mary-Lou Manizer!
