I have been wanting to try The Balm’s famous Mary-Lou Manizer for well….forever. They don’t carry The Balm at my Sephora or any other stores in my area as far as I know. I lucked into an overstock purchase at Marshalls though, and was able to get it in a kit with some other things for $9.99. What a deal! It pays to check Marshalls and TJ Maxx once in a while. You never know what you might find.
Back to the highlighter/illuminator. The short of it is that I love Mary-Lou Manizer. First off, the packaging is the cutest thing I have ever seen. The Balm has the BEST packaging of any company, in my opinion. Anyway, it has a girl with her mugshot on the front. You open the compact up and it has a generous mirror. The highlighter itself is gorgeous. It is an intense highlighter so if you are skiddish about that, then this might not be the product for you. If you want to shine, this is for you! Shine on girl!! Its such a pretty, intense shimmer:) You can use it on your cheeks, cupid’s bow, nose and eyes. Its color is white gold with a hint of beige.
It retails for $24 for .3oz and is oil and paraben free.
Although Sephora sells some The Balm products, this one is not among their offerings. I don’t know why, but when I looked it was not on the site:( You can get Mary-Lou Manizer from beauty.com, nordstrom.com and thebalm.com .
I purchased this product and was not compensated for this review. As always, these are my own, honest opinions
