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. Layer it on your lids for luxe-looking lashes, sweep it on your check for a sexy sheen, or use it as an all-over finishing touch before you head out for the night.
TheBalm’s Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer is a fine powder highlighter encased in a sturdy but lightweight silver compact with a generous sized mirror. The powder is very finely milled and gives a warm glow with little to no fallout. It gives an incredibly subtle look if you apply in natural daylight to avoid overloading your skin. It can look quite sparkly in bright sunshine, but sure when do we ever get that in the UK?!? It lasts most of the day on my (dry) skin and the fact that the tiniest little swipe is all you need means that the 8.5g of product will last you forever. So far I’ve only used it on my cheekbones but I’m looking forward to using it as an eyeshadow over Christmas.
I bought this for £12 during one of Feel Unique’s summer sales but it normally retails for £15 which I’d be happy to pay.
