Mary-Lou Manizer aka 'The Luminizer'

The Balm - Mary Lou Manizer
I've finally got my hands on it... yaaaayyyy!


This is my first cosmetic that I've purchased from the brand 'The Balm' I've heard so many good reviews about them and this particular product in particular. Especially on YouTube a lot of beauty Tuber's swear by this stuff and I always see it being used in most of their videos uploaded.
So 'Mary-Lou Manizer' is a highlighter, shimmer and eyeshadow.
The MUA highlighter I have tends to appear a bit silvery resulting in my cheeks looking a bit grey? Not the best look! I find this highlighter a champagne colour that has a golden sheen to it so it's so much better. It adds a golden glow to the skin. I don't think I'll hit pan on this one for a very long time as a little goes a long way. It's so silky and easy to apply. I use this on my cheek's, cupid's bow, bridge of my nose, inner corner of my eyes and under my brows. Just sprinkle a bit of it everywhere! 

I purchased mine online from
£12.00 as it was on sale with free delivery.

Have you tried this product before?
Or do you own anything from 'The Balm'?

      really happy with this purchase although it's made me want to buy all of their product's now and they are a little pricey!

    1. Yeah I love the packaging it reminds me of the make-up my mum used when I was younger, so pretty :)
      I want to order one of their eyeshadow palettes next time, they look so good! I didn't think it was going to be that good! I thought ahh I'm gunna get it and it's gunna be soooo over rated but I know why they rave about it now.

    1. Yeah I usually have a look and then close the page down as it can be a little pricey. This highlighter will last me so long though so it's definitely worth it :)
