theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter

For the past year I thought that the Topshop highlighter in Sunbeam was my perfect highlighter. Oh how wrong I was! Mary-Lou Manizer from theBalm is the perfect highlighter, and tops any highlighter I've ever used, ever. 


I have become a serious fan of theBalm products over the past few months. The theBalm Bon Jovi Rockstar palette is one of my most reached for palettes, theBalm Meet Matt(e) palette is another favourite, as is theBalm Frat Boy Blusher. Mary-lou Manizer is an oil-free and paraben-free pressed face powder, which can be used for an all-over glow, as a highlighter to enhance your features, as an eye-shadow or to highlight your brow bone. Presented in a large 8.5g tin, it's a bargain over at Beauty Chamber for just £15.

I find myself reaching for this most days now. I love it to highlight my cheeks and brow bone, and it's also subtle enough for a subtle highlight down the centre of my nose. It's soft, so easy to blend in and long lasting too. With a beautiful golden tone to it, this is truly the most beautiful, and addictive, highlighter I have ever used. Yet another winning product from theBalm. 

What's your favourite highlighter? Let me know!

  3. I've never tried any products from theBalm, however I really like the look of this!

    The retro packaging is gorgeous :)

    I've just purchased the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter. Which gives an effect very similar to your swatches. I'm quite enjoying that at the moment and bargain for the price!

  9. I swatched this highlighter at the drugstore once because everyone had been raving about it but it's SO pigmented that it actually scared me, haha. I had to really work to blend it out and ended up looking like a disco ball:/ Oh well, I'm glad you liked it though and it's become a favorite! My favorite is Soft & Gentle :) xx
