The Bomb! I Mean The Balm

This is the Queen of all the highlighters!

I brought the Mary Lou Manizer off Amazon a few months back for £15.00 - although you can get it here from Feel Unique for £16. The first thing I loved about this product is the packaging (I now believe in love at first sight) it has somewhat of a vintagey, girly feel & it has my name written all over it! I'm so sad that I dropped this & it smashed to smithereens :-( damn you wooden floor! So apologies for not being able to show you the inside of this beauty, as I highly doubt you all fancy seeing a broken product. 

So I'm assuming you're wondering whether or not this product is just as fabulous on the inside as it is on the outside? Absolutely! Once opened this has a nice-sized compact mirror which is the perfect on the go product - if yours in still intact of course! This highlighter is a light gold, champagne colour which looks just as beautiful on the skin as it does in the pan. I apply this with a fan brush you only need a tiny amount to start off with as you can apply too much if you're a bit product happy like myself, so I would highly recommend that you start off lightly then build to your desired look. It's super easy to blend & gives a gorgeous natural glow. I use this alongside my Bobbi Brown Bronzer (review here) which gives you an amazing contour, so the contrast between light & dark really makes your bone structure pop!

As some of you may know I love my products to have more than one usage - this can be used to highlight your cheeks, underneath your brows & cupids bow but it is also a really pretty shimmery eyeshadow which is one of my go-to everyday looks. 

This is a must-have for your make up bag ladies!
