I have waited so long make this review, but I finally have the time to put it up. This is a review for The Balm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer and the Betty-Lou Manizer set. As you can tell from the box, the set is originally sold for $48. I purchased this set at Marshalls for about $20. The Balm Cosmetics are also sold at Sephora and if youre lucky, you can now find them on http://Hautelook.com at a discounted price.
I was most excited to try the Mary-Lou Manizer since Ive heard people rave about this product.
The Mary-Lou Manizer is a highlighter and the Betty-Lou Manizer is the bronzer. They both come in a compact with a mirror inside and just like all of The Balm products these have really cute packaging. The pigmentation of these is amazing (Picture 7). I like to be very gentle when dusting my brush on these because a little goes a long way. Not only are they very pigmented, but they are also creamy and very easy to blend (Picture 8).
The highlighter is a very pretty Champaign color and it is not glittery at all. It has more of a sheen finish and gives the skin a nice glowing effect. I use this everyday now and I love it! I use it to highlight my brow bone, the top of my cheek bones, inner tear duct, and sometimes on my cupids bow.
The bronzer is a copper color. I think the color is nice, but it is not something I would use as an everyday bronzer. I think this would work better for me in the summer when I am tan. I do however use this as an eye shadow sometimes. I cant say I love this, but when summer comes and I get my tan on I am pretty sure I will end up loving this and using it more often.
If I could recommend any of these two I would say get the highlighter, but if you see a good deal of the set then I would recommend picking it up since each would originally retail for $24.
Have you tried any of these two yet? If you have what do you think of them?
