This time of year more than ever, it’s all about the glow. Whether you choose a powder or liquid luminizer, you’ll want to sparkle (but not TOO much) for all those holiday parties and get -togethers. Enter theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer ($24). It’s a highlighter…no it’s an eye shadow…no it’s a candlelight glow in a pressed powder!
This powder is silky smooth and the low wattage shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow. It’s a soft, shimmering champagne with subtle gold tones. Although not the most subtle, there is no overt glitter; just a soft pearly sheen making it appropriate for us over 40 women. It’s a really pretty shade and should be flattering on most skin tones, but it is especially stunning on warmer skin tones. That said, it can worn by all.
There are so many ways to use this; layer it on your lids for luxe-looking lashes, sweep it on your cheeks for a sexy sheen, or use it as an allover finishing touch before hitting the town. More good news, Mary-Lou Manizer is paraben- and talc-free formula.
TheBalm is known for their cheeky packaging. Both the box and the compact depict a Mary-Lou Manizer aka “The Luminizer” in a pseudo lineup. The Offense: highlighter, shimmer and shadow. The Charge: too pretty, too popular. Antonym: womanizer. The powder is housed in mirrored compact.
Bottom Line: you’re good to glow with theBalm Mary Lou Manizer!
