Ask any woman what is her definition of an ideal complexion and we bet they’ll use some of the following adjectives – dewy, glowing, soft, fresh. Some women are lucky enough to have this kind of complexion without even trying, while others have to use a little bit of makeup magic. The cult favorite product that we are featuring today – the Mary-Lou Manizer by the Balm – is one of those makeup gems that will add to your flawless complexion with a few strokes of a brush. On top of that, the retro-inspired packaging and the witty name are seriously great.
The Mary-Lou Manizer is actually a three-in-one product – a highlighter, a luminizer and a shimmer – and its main purpose is to give your skin that honey hued, slightly sun-kissed appearance that not only looks healthy but also adds depth and dimension to your face. You can also use the Mary-Lou Manizer as a bronzer or as a setting powder for that all-over finished look. And you won’t look over done or orange because this product has a very subtle yet highly pigmented golden/champagne highlight.
The Mary-Lou Manizer by the Balm is not too shimmery, which seems to be the problem with quite a few highlighters and luminizers, but it’s definitely noticeable since it gives your skin a very healthy, faintly bronzed glow. You can apply it several ways – dust it on your lids for a luxurious look, sweep it on the tops of your cheekbones for a sexy highlight, or use it as an all-over finishing touch before you head out for the night. Because it’s very sheer and light, the Mary-Lou Manizer is suitable for all skin types and it will look good on women of all ages.
