Despite their usual gorgeousness in the pan, highlighters aren't something that I typically tend to buy all that often. I was quite content with my two MAC highlighters, I mean, they do the job, right? That was until I saw the Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm.
Mary-Lou Manizer is to put it simply, the most beautiful highlighter I've ever seen. Sure, MAC's Soft & Gentle is very beautiful in the pan, perhaps more than this one, but once swatched, Mary-Lou Manizer is absolutely stunning. Other than being the most gorgeous, slightly yellow toned, champagne colour, it has a soft, smooth, buttery texture and is also extremely pigmented. When I say extremely pigmented, I really do mean it. You only need the tiniest amount of product for a serious highlight. This is definitely not a subtle highlighter so if that's what you're after, this may not be the one for you. In saying that, I do recommend starting with a very small amount as it is very easy to over do it.
After trying this, I'm definitely eager to get my hands on some more products from The Balm, especially if they're all of a similar quality to Mary-Lou Manizer!
Mary-Lou Manizer is available at David Jones for $34.95.
