The Balm Mary-Lou Maniser Luminizer

With my oily combination skin I've spent years fighting the shine but recently I've gotten into added a subtle highlight to the top of my cheeks.  I've heard an awful lot of You Tubers rave about the theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Luminizer so when I saw it on offer on I put my order in immediately!


I love theBalm's packaging, it's always fun and kind of reminds me a lot of Soap & Glory with the style as well as the fun play on words with the names of each product. 


This highlighter is a champagne / gold sheen, I don't want to say 'shimmer' because to me that implies it's glittery when it's not.  It's so finely milled that a little goes a really long way.  I've actually heard it say that if theBalm did a mini size this would be great, this version is going to last forever!


I really like the tone of the colour it gives, providing you don't go overboard with the initial application (it's easily done as it's so fine that a lot will stick to your brush) and build it up, the light just catches it nicely adding dimension to your face.


The bottom line is... I love this highlighter.  It's everything I was after, it adds a stunning glow wherever you apply it to and will even double up as a gorgeous eyeshadow.  I highly recommend it!
