Company’s Description

This highlighter, shadow, and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow. Layer this paraben- and talc-free formula on your lids for luxe-looking lashes, sweep it on your cheeks for a sexy sheen, or use it as an all-over finishing touch before hitting the town.

This review is for theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer–a sheer luminous golden ivory highlighting powder.

Packaging: 9.25/10

This highlighter comes in a silver, round, plastic compact with a full-sized mirror. The box housing the compact is design exactly like the compact is.

Quality: 10/10

The formula for this highlighter is not powdery, but has enough softness to glide onto the skin nicely. The shimmer in the powder is very finely-milled, giving you a refined illuminating finish.

You get incredible payoff from the pale, creamy-white color along with high-intensity sheen. This is a great product for using with a nighttime makeup look.

Ease of Use: 9.75/10

This powder glides onto the skin smoothly, blends easily, and can be layered. It can easily be used as an eyeshadow as well as on the face.

Price: 9.5/10

For $24.00 you get 8.5 grams (0.3 ounces) of product. Stila’s All Over Shimmer Duo is $22.00 and contains 5.1 grams of product. You get much more product for the price with theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer.
