In one of my recent posts I reviewed my very first product from The Balm and I must say that I was really impressed with it. I also mentioned there that I initially wanted to try out the Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter, but unfortunately they did not have it in stock then. Finally it is here!
The packaging is very The Balm- the whole retro theme is still going strong- it is cute, I like it. The highlighter itself is warm-toned, which is something I always go for as I find that it suits my complexion much better. It does deliver its job neatly; applies smoothly, contains enough pigmentation and doesn’t make your face look like a disco ball in any sorts. The fact that it is a multi-purpose one is always a big yes from me; it can be used as a highlighter and as an eye shadow as well. All sounds good but is a budget buy? Well, it doesn’t break the bank but still not that affordable either. I actually needed a good highlighter to replace my “until I find a better one, this does the job” highlighter. Also as it takes so long to go through an entire highlighter, you can of course choose to invest a little and give this one a try.
I would love to hear what you think down below.
Thanks for reading!
