theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer

25. marec 2014


Hello lovelies! Today I'd like to show you a gorgeous highlighter from theBalm - Mary-Lou Manizer. :) I've read/heard amazing things about this highlighter, but I was pretty content with my Sleek Contour kit and the highlighter that came in it, so I decided not to get it just yet. A few months ago though, I started seeing it everywhere - on blogs, on YouTube channels,... so when I found it on Feelunique, I just had to grab it. :)






First of all - can we just talk about the packaging for a minute? theBalm seriously does a great job with their packaging - I love the packaging of my Nude'tude palette and now this... it just makes using the product so much more enjoyable and fun. :) The only thing that disappointed me (and not even that really, it's just that I had certain expectations of it), is that the packaging isn't as sturdy or high-quality as I wanted it to be. Now, don't get me wrong... there's absolutely nothing wrong with the packaging, it's not whimsy or really cheep-feeling, but it could be a bit better, let's just leave it at that. :)





The highlighter itself is truly gorgeous. It's a beautiful honey-golden-champagne shade and has a lovely, buttery formula with excellent pigmentation. I've heard a lot of people say it's too shimmery and you have to be really careful with it or you can look like a disco-ball in no time, but I don't agree... you just have to know how to make it work. :) I find that, if I apply it with a brush it does turn out quite shimmery and you can actually see tiny glitter here and there, but if I apply it with my fingers it turns out lovely - it gives a beautiful sheen to the skin that is noticeable, but still looks subtle enough. I wouldn't recommend it to someone that wants a very subtle, barley-there highlighter, because it is visible. It looks gorgeous and maybe not 'natural' but definitely not too much or really 'fake', if you know what I'm trying to say. :)





I'm in love with this highlighter and I'm so happy I finally decided to get it. :) I purchased it on Fellunique.com for 19 €, but the regular price is 20 € (and something).


What are your thoughts on this highlighter? Do you even wear highlighter, which one is your favorite?

  3. Čudovito! Takoj bi ga imela! Jaz sem v prejšnjem letu postala obsedena z highlighterji, tako da jih definitivno uporabljam. Moj najljubši je od Essence Metal Glam kolekcija. Odtenek je podoben temu, ampak verjetno je shimmer bolj viden kot v tem:)

    1. Fantastičen je, res! Pa sem se tudi jaz na začetku bala, da bo preveč 'glittery'... :)

  6. Ga imam in je krasen, ne vem, zakaj ga pogosteje ne uporabljam :)
    Je pa res, da kadar imam kakšne mozoljčke tudi na ličkih, ali druge nepravilnosti, jih žal še bolj poudari.. sicer pa je res lep odtenek in se strinjam, da ni neopazen,ampak ravno to mi je všeč, pa vsekakor ne izgleda 'cheap', ampak se mi zdi, da obraz še bolj zdravo zažari z njim :)

    1. Seveda, če so kakšne nepravilnosti na obrazu, jih bleščeči proizvodi še dodatno povdarijo, zato je treba pazit... ampak drugače je pa super in res da čudovit sijaj ličkam (oz. delom obraza, ki jih osvetlimo). :)
