I have been wanting to try out the Balm products since a very long time. My sister had gone on a vacation sometime back and came back with a lot of goodies for me. One of them was theBalm Mory-Lou Manizer. I have been using this product every single time I go out. Like all theBalm products, Mary-Lou Manizer aka The Luminizer comes in the cutest retro themed packaging- funky and adorable!

It comes with a big size mirror which is very handy. Mary-Lou Manizer is described as a soft “honey-hued” champagne gold highlighter and it is absolutely stunning. The shade is universally flattering and will suit all skin tones- warm or cool toned, extremely well. The pigmentation is fantastic and it adds that luminous glow to your face.

It is definitely is one of the most long wearing highlighter’s I have used. It blends like a dream, since its texture is extremely finely-milled and soft. The powder feels very light and buttery on the skin leaving behind no patchiness at all. Even if you have dry skin, it will blend uniformly without getting in fine lines or unevenness. I am a big fan of the glowy, slightly dewy skin look and this is one of the nicest ones I’ve tried. It can be applied as an eyeshadow all over the lids. You can definitely build it up for a more Kim Kardashian-esque glow.

It can be used on the cheek bones, brow bones, on the convex surfaces of your forehead (temples), inner corner of your eyes or also as an eyeshadow. Overall, this is a fantastic product. Price varies from place to place. I think my sister got it for around Rs. 1200 but there was a promotion going on at that time. Click here to buy.

    I own Betty Lou, though marketed as a bronzer, it’s the perfect golden highlight for a tan skin girl like me 🙂
