From theBalm: Fake it, don’t bake it! Before you head out to relish some well deserved sun, score a faux, sun-kissed glow with theBalm’s Betty-Lou Manizer. Betty-Lou is a silky smooth, all-in-one bronzing highlighter, shimmer and shadow.
I have known about this product for quite some time now, but I did not purchase it right away. I always prefer a matte bronzer to contour the different parts of my face. The very first item I bought from theBalm is the Mary-Lou Manizer, the best highlighter I have ever tried. I also bought several blushes, that I will review soon! I can say that I am impressed with all the items I bought from theBalm, and it helped me to finally decide to get the Betty-Lou Manizer.
I love how this product can work as a bronzer, highlighter and shimmer, and eyeshadow! It looks intimidating on the pan, but it actually applies so smoothly and creamy, and the shade is buildable. It is very pigmented, so I would suggest to apply it with a light hand. It may look orange-y on pale skin tones, but it works great on my medium skin. It gives my cheek a healthy golden sheen.
This 8.5g product will last me a lifetime! I can say that theBalm is really worth paying for. The quality and quantity is amazing! I have used it as a bronzer, and eyeshadow, and it lasted the whole day on my cheek, and oily lids.

PURCHASE AGAIN? Yes! (In another lifetime! LOL!)
