Mary - Loumanizer by theBalm

20 comments
Hello and welcome to my new website design!

As you know I recently switched from wordpress to blogger because of many reasons but one of the main ones were the possibility of changing themes on blogger and the ability to install whatever I want by placing it into the HTML code which cannot be handled on wordpress.com websites. For all the other bloggers - I will make a post explaining how you can do this and save your posts at the same time :)

Let's get to business shall we? Today I will review the famous product which all of you know - it is one of the most famous highlighters of all time; theBalm's Mary-Loumanizer!



I have to admit, I first saw this at essiebutton's and was instantly attracted to the luminous and fresh look you can create with this highlighter without looking all sparkled up like a Christmas tree.



 THE PACKAGING: The packaging is the first thing I was attracted to - it's vintage and cute, very innovative and unique. I haven't seen anything similar to this so far (except for the other Balm's makeup).

Mary-Lou comes packed inside a nice pink box and on the front you can see her jail picture where she is accused of many things such as: being too pretty and popular and also for being a shimmer, highlighter and eyeshadow!



 And what I like the most about the package is the fact that you can use this as a mirror as well! It really comes in very handy in situations where you are in a hurry or on a trip and you need to fix your makeup quickly.




SHIMMER - HIGHLIGHTER effect: I can honestly say that it really works for me. I usually apply it on my cheekbones over my blush and on my browbones. Then with the last brush swipe I just go all over my face with it and it creates that nice multi-dimensional healthy looking radiance. Since my current foundation is the Teint Miracle, I don't really need extra radiance or shimmer but Mary-Lou works nice even with the illuminating foundations - they complement each other beautifully.

Since my skin is a bit oily in the t-zone, I was afraid this would make it look even more shiny. But luckily, that doesn't happen. At least not in that terrible greasy way - Mary-Lou gives you that young, illuminating shine, not the sweaty/oily type.

It is a highly pigmented luminizer so you have to be careful when applying it - we don't want to achieve that disco ball effect right?

Here you can see it from a closeup and also a swatch on my hand:





 OVERALL IMPRESSION: Mary-Lou has quickly become one of my favorite products to wear. I cannot imagine my makeup routine without her anymore. I would also like to get her sisters - Cindy-Lou (rosey-peach highlighter) and Betty-Lou (bronzer) since they all look so great! I would recommend it to all of the girls looking for a nice, highly pigmented highlighter - invest in Mary-Lou luminizer, you won't regret it :)

*You can buy this product at Feelunique for 16 pounds (free shipping) - that's where I got it!

Until next time,

Roseybelle

  7. joj svi pišu o ovom highlighteru, a ja samo slinim i slinim za njim. da ga vidim uživo ne bi ga ni dirala. divan je od same ambalaže do samog proizvoda. mislim neću se sad ponavljat kao i svaki put kad ga komentiram, naprosto je divan. a ovaj tvoj novi dizajn je isto divan i baš mi je drago da si se uspijela uspješno prebacit sa wordpressa. ja sam si još uvijek bi, ne bi, iako bi bilo možda najpametnije da što prije to napravim da kasnije još više ne požalim s obzirom na to koliko je nenormalno ograničen! čeka tvoj post o tome, ljubiiim te :**

  8. Da, ma isplati se uloziti u njega definitivno :) imala sam puno muke sa prebacivanjem, ali uspjela sam konacno, post cu napisati nekad iduci tjedan no da, definitivno ako si to odlucila onda je bolje sada nego kasnije da ne gubis jos statistike i dok je postove lakse prebaciti :) cujemo se :**
