The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer Review, Swatches, and Photos!

The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer is the perfect highlighting powder for any complexion! It is a beautiful and soft shimmering champagne color that highlights all your best features.

This product is overly adorable. It comes in a nice little compact with a mirror and all! It contains .3 ounces which is double what say, an average blush would contain. This amount of illuminator will last you forever. All you need is a light hand to apply it and it gives you a radiant look. I love the name they gave this as well! Mary Lou-Manizer, a cross between an illuminator and a womanizer. I love how they portray a mugshot on the front of the compact with Mary Lou-manizer as a womanizer. So cute and original.



This illuminator retails for $24.00 for .30 ounces. I find that it is worth the splurge because not only is it an illuminator, it can also be used as an eyeshadow too. When applied to the lids, it gives a beautiful wash of champagne shimmer and works great as a browbone highlight.


When it comes to highlighters, I can be very picky. They are usually just a glittery mess. But with Mary Lou-Manizer, you get the most amazing highlight. This illuminator is not glittery at all. It is superfine shimmer that won't make you look like a glitter/shimmer bomb. It works for day time looks or for spicing up a night time look.

The powder is soft, blendable, and super pigmented. I would recommend it to anyone. If you are looking for a splurge or just a great illuminating powder that you won't want to bring back, try Mary Lou-Manizer. She won't let you down :)

Wearing Mary Lou-Manizer and my warmest bathrobe!

  8. So pretty! I have wanted this for the longest time but I already have so many highlighters that I feel like I can't justify buying another. I may have to reconsider... ;)
