TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer - Review:

What The Product Says:
Meet Mary-Lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer that catches everybody’s eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow.

TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer
It's no secret to anyone that TheBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer is my all-time favourite highlighter. This highlighter is such perfection I can't rave on about it enough and to me it doesn’t compare to anything else.

The packaging is pretty, I love the picture and the name, love the big mirror inside. It is a very light champagne colour which is so beautiful that you can use it as an eyeshadow too. Finely milled, you'll never look cheap. Super pigmented and easy to blend, the powder is fine with no chunks of glitter.

For a subtle look you can use it with a light hand otherwise it is quite prominent on the tops of your cheekbones and/or as an inner corner/brow highlight. I usually apply it with a fan brush and use a small amount on the highlight areas of my face and it looks even more amazing when the light hits it. This really puts the cherry on top of my contour and lasts well on my skin.

I see some people complaining about it emphasizing their pores but I didn't face this problem. I wish they make some small ones so we can carry it with us.

Over all, it's my holy grail highlighter. You get a really good amount of product for the price. I have been using mine for a year and I use it a lot but I still haven't hit pan. It is suitable for most, if not all, complexions.


  • Super pigmented.
  • Easy to blend.
  • Finely milled.
  • Beautiful colour.
  • Doesn't appear chunky.


  • Might not suit all complexions.
  • You find it expensive.
  • It emphasizes pores on your face.

My Rating:

As TheBalm is now finally available in Pakistan, you can purchase Mar-Lou Manizer from Scentsation in Dolmen City Mall. For more info about the product, check out their website.
