theBalm was kind enough to let me pick out product to review and show you guys. Of course, just like all my reviews this is my full honest opinion.
All the links and buying information your little heart desires will be located at the bottom of this post. Be sure to check them all out!
Here is a screen shot from theBalm website. This is their super cute page for the Mary-Lou Manizer in their Cheeks section.
As shown in her police report, Mary-Lou is being held for multiple charges. Not only is she a great cheek highlight, all over shimmer and eye shadow, but she is also too pretty and too popular.
" 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. Layer is on your lids for luxe-looking lashes, sweep it on your cheeks for a sexy sheen or use it as an all-over finishing touch before you head out for the night. "
Here is a screen shot of the "purchase" button on theBalm's website. As you can see, this product is only $24.00 and is 8.5g.

The packaging is so cute and full of amazing details. Its too cute to throw away, so I am storing my compact in the box still.
Here is the back of the box. Not only does it has the barcode, and ingredients list, but it also has Mary-Lou's finger prints. How cute!
Shown here is the compact (left) and its matching box (right). theBalm puts amazing details into their packaging.
Here is the back of the compact. Nothing fancy, but it does not need to be.
Here is the compact open. As you can see, the product is a pressed powder. It comes with a mirror on top making it convenient for travel, and touchups.
Mary-Lou Manizer gave me glowing skin. Can you see the "soft focus" effect?
Here it is in bright light so you can see some sheen.
Works great as a browbone highlight.
My skin looks great!
And in the light, the shimmer gives you the greatest non glittery looking glow.
Overall, I think this product is a must have!
$24 may seem like a lot of money for some of you budget conscious girls and guys, but trust me... you get more than you pay for. Not only can you use it in place of many products, but I have used it many many times and it doesn't even look touched. Its very pigmented, causing you to only need a little. But it is also a lot of product for your money. I can see this lasting a very long time.
