BEAUTY: theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer

I know that the Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter from theBalm is already spoken about so much in the beauty blogging world but it really is  a top quality product. I was prompted to buy it after seeing Liza from Glambeautys using it in one of her YouTube videos. The only highlighter I had really used previously was the Benefit High Beam, which is a cream highlighter and therefore applied in a completely different way.

I ordered this from feelunique for £16, so it's definitely a pricey product but the quality is just outstanding. The pigment, oh the pigment of this product is just incredible. Never have I come across a product where a gentle press into the powder will leave the prettiest golden shine on your finger! You need the tiniest amount, trust me.

When I first got this product I used it like a 'normal' less pigmented highlighter - cue enough glittery shine to start my own disco. I use a No7 Mineral powder brush, dab it into the powder a couple of times (no swirling around the pan) and brush it along the tops of my cheek bones and down the bridge of my nose. I find that I get the perfect amount of highlight for me if I then apply a matte blusher over the top, using the same brush. It just makes the highlighter slightly more wearable for the day! I wouldn't bother at night. It's also perfect for highlighting your brow bones too. 

If you haven't tried this highlighter yet then you really should, it's incredible! In fact when we went away for my hen do my friend was so impressed with it she now has one too.

Feel free to leave a comment - I love reading every single one :)
