I have always been a big fan of a matte finish, and putting a highlighter on my face makes me look shiny and oily. I never thought I will purchase my own highlighter.
But then, something got into me and I decided to try the dewy look. I have read that it makes the face look younger and healthier. A matte finish makes it more obvious that you are wearing makeup, and I don’t want that
So, I started buying face makeup – like foundation and BB creams that have dewy finishes. I want to experience the “glow” they will bring to my face. The first product I purchased was the L’Oreal Paris Lucent Magique BB Skin Illuminating BB Cream. I don’t have a review or demo of it yet, but I must say, I like it! I also bought the L’Oreal Lucent Magique Light Infusing Foundation because of a lot of good reviews about it.
So back to my real post… I bought the TheBalm Mary-Lou-Manizer from Stuff in Style, my trusted seller from way back Multiply days. I like it because it is multi-purpose. It can be used as a highlighter, shimmer, and eyeshadow! It also has a lot of products in it, 8.5g to be exact.
As you can see, it is not glittery, but rather, shimmery. It is so smooth, and pigmented. A little goes a long way!
They say highlighters can make your pores look more visible, so watch out for that. I have been a fan of this highlighter since I bought it. I always bring it with me. 😛 I love how it makes my face glow without looking like a disco ball.
Let me know if you have tried or liked this product.
Until my next post!
