The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Review

I love “The balm” cosmetics. They name their products funny and creative. And their packaging are so quirky. Something different from the other brands. Not to mention their products are amazing too, they are cruelty-free, paraben-free and talc-free, so its a big thumbs up for The balm.

What is a highlighter?

A highlighter basically highlights the high points of the face like brow bone, forehead, cheek bone, nose bridge and sometimes used on body too. It gives a glam shine and healthiness to the skin.

Meet Mary-Lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer which catches everybody’s eye. It can be used as a highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow.

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Review


Like all The Balm products, Mary-Lou Manizer packaging is absolutely stunning. The case itself is a sturdy round tin containing 8.5 gm of product. There is so much of product, that this will be enough for your makeup collection. Well, if you are planning to settle for it, then this product will do good. It comes with a big size mirror which is very handy for application and touch ups. It is light weight and easy to carry around whenever needed.


The shade is to die for. The shade is described as soft champagne gold. It is absolutely stunning and gorgeous. This shade suits almost all skin tones and looks amazing on everyone. If you are an Indian or Brown skin tines, Mary-Lou Manizer is the one for you.

The fair and pink under toned woman can opt for Mary Cindy-Lou Manizer. If you have a deeper complexion than a dusky skin tone, then you can pull off both Mary-Lou Manizer and Betty-Lou Manizer equally well.


This highlighter is very crazily pigmented and a touch of it is enough. The texture is soft, buttery, finely-milled and it blends beautifully with ease. It does not have any glitter or shimmer particles since its extremely finely pigment. There are no fall outs found while using this product.


Mary-Lou Manizer can be used as highlighter or eye shadow or eyebrow bone highlighter. It is definitely a very versatile product.

On winter days, when you feel like not wearing makeup. Simply conceal and add this highlighter subtly over the high points of the face for a natural beautiful glowing face. This product can be used as a highlighter according to the occasion. You can use a subtle sheen glow to the makeup for an everyday, office or college. For any special occasion or a night out, you could use a bang on highlighter that is enough to blind a person (Just saying). It really depends on how much you need, you can layer it up as much as you want.

As for using it as an eye shadow, add Mary-Lou Manizer on your lids for a simple eye look. A winged liner will complement really well for this shadow (Well its my favorite way of using this as a eye shadow). The look is simple yet looks sophisticated. It glides on easy and it is very pigmented.


I never have had any problem with touch ups while I wear this highlighter. This product does not moves round and it stays in place.

I can assure you Mary-Lou Manizer product is one of the most long wearing powder highlighters. It stays on for 6 hours with no primer or setting spray. While it stays on a good 8 to 9 hours while I use it with a good primer and a setting spray.

Overall Score: 10/10 😉 🙂 🙂
