The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer // REVIEW

Guess what's coming today. Oh yes, I'm doing it. My review of the famous The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer that everyone and their mama are talking about.

As you can see from my picture up there, it doesn't look like I've been using it a hella lot, but I did. It just comes from using a tiny little blending brush to apply it to my cheekbones (which now I'm using a different brush that actually works way better).

As usual with my review, I gotta tell you the price. So the product holds 8.5g (0.3 oz) and I got it off of for 20.80€ which was worth every. single. cent. In case you don't have The Balm anywhere just like me, here is the link to where I got it (X).

Mary-Lou Manizer is THE most perfect highlighter ever. It is absolutely stunning. It has that amazing shimmer and a gorgeous colour. It's got this goldish colour kind of the like iPhone gold (best description ever, I know). The pigmentation is great, literally be careful when you use it and rather build it up because it's easy to go overboard with this highlighter since it has crazy colour payoff, trust me. I once went out looking like a disco ball because I went a little nuts with highlighting my cheekbones (it's not a cute look, don't do it). Also, it's so buttery and smooth, touching is feels like you're touching clouds. You know when you're on a plane and you want to touch the clouds because they just look so soft and cozy? Yes, touching this highlighter must be how clouds would feel like.

I could probably go on about it for hours and hours and keep raving about how amazing it is because I just love it THAT much.

I got it because everyone seemed to love it on Youtube so I had to get it too, of course, first world problems. And when I got it and put it on I was like "Highlighter is my new favourite thing. I will never go outside not using a highlighter ever again, this is absolutely stunning!" and it is. 20€ for a highlighter is not that much compared to Bobbi Brown etc. and the pigmentation, colour, consistency, everything is just so nice I don't think you could ever beat that with a cheaper price.

So my conclusion for you guys is: go get it, NOW! You need this in your life, trust me, you do!
