Review: the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

 Hello Loveys!
 
Todays review is a look at the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, it claims it is a highlighter, eyeshadow and shimmer.
 
the Balm was founded by Melissa Shipman who has a philosophy that you only need some staple items to create a look, "beauty within 5 minutes". A lot of the products produced are multi use, so some are blushers and eyeshadows, and like this Mary-Lou Manizer it is a shimmer, highlighter and eyeshadow. The products are cruelty free and paraben free too.

This is available from FeelUnique.com. I fell instantly in love with the retro feel of the packaging, different to what is around on the market. The packaging is fun, unique and girley. 
 
Review, Mary, Lou, Manizer, highlighter, Blusher, Whispersfromangels, Shimmer, Pretty, Blogger, Eyeshadow, theBalm, BalmI opened the case I swatched it straightaway, boy oh boy this is beautiful! It has great pigmentation, applies easily and highlights the skin in a subtle yet striking way. I have used this as a highlighter, eyeshadow and shimmer. It doesn't have a "tacky" shimmer where its overpowering, it is subtle. It has a slight yellow tone to it when initially applied, but then when blended I didn't find I could see that.

The compact is handy to throw in your bag, and to fit in a clutch bag, it has a mirror which is always good for applying on the go.
This can be used on your cheekbones, brow bone and in the inner corners of your eyes to open them up. I will do a look with this product so you can see what it looks like on.
 
Have you tried this or any other product from the Balm range?
