The Balm: Mary-Lou Manizer

This is a pretty nifty little product; a really strong highlighter with a velvety texture, it instantly adds emphasis wherever you apply it. It’s much easier to use than a cream and can be applied using a brush or simply with fingertips.

In the video I demonstrate a few different ways of using the luminiser – on cheekbones, underneath brows, on the cupid’s bow, and hopefully you will be able to see just how easy it is to really create a nice glowing effect!

I think I’ll just let the video speak for itself, and finish up by saying that Mary-Lou Manizer is £16 with free delivery HERE

    It would just be so much easier if we could actually swatch these instead of ordering witout even seeing the actual powder! It went in my “I Want” list (much lower than the elemis brush but it might make it one day)nevertheless.
    P.S. Good luck with the wisdom tooth, I had 4 to remove and they were all growing inwards so it was hard to remove but I had very quick recovery (solids on the 2nd day! yay!)

    I ordered this 2 week ago after seeing this video and absolutely love it ! Did you know they also have a Betty Lou Manizer ?
    It’s a really gorgeous bronzer/highligter, perfect for summer.
    I ordered them both from ebay and have worn them every day now.
    Thanks for the tip and love your site !
