For some years highlighters have been quite a big hit, there are many out there. Powders, creams, liquids… Which one do you go for? This is a step that some of us avoid and some of us can’t do without. Who wouldn’t want a nice glow? If you do then highlighter is what you are looking for, maybe theBalm Lou Manizer!
I don’t have many highlighters, I just have a few that I love and I am happy with it. I am sure most of you heard a lot about theBalm Lou Manizer highlighters, especially theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer which I believe is their most popular highlighter. It is the first product I got from them. I just couldn’t resist… how pretty it looks and also the packaging is catchy. Later on I got the second highlighter from theBalm, which is theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer.
These highlighters are smooth and silky in texture, really pigmented and easy to work with. With one stroke you get a really nice glow on your face, just make sure not to overdo it, as it is really pigmented. I always use small brushes (or finger tips depending on where I apply) and apply it with light hand, it blends so easily. I prefer to build up rather than applying so much in one go.
theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer is a light yellowish champagne shade highlighter whereas theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer is a soft peachy pink highlighter with gold undertone. Two different shades, which you can work with. I don’t like the highlighters with chunks of glitter in it, this one is great. It gives really nice shimmer and reflects the light.
On the packaging it says they can be used as highlighter, shimmer and shadow. I have fair skin and I think theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer also can be used as a blush, however, I mostly go for matte blushes, this one would be so shimmery. However, if you like shimmery blushes then this would be a perfect multipurpose product for you. Also, I don’t think I’d consider using theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer for anything more than highlighter, since it is a really light shade.
I also like the packaging. The illustrations are so pretty and definitely take attention. I like the big mirror, which comes so handy and there’s so much product in it. I have been using them a lot and there is still so much left in it.
Have you tried any of these highlighters? What’s your favourite highlighter?
