The Balm Betty-Lou Manizer & Mary-Lou Manizer Review and Swatches

These 2 beauties have been in my collection for a couple of years now and I think they, along with TheBalm brand in general, are way underrated in the makeup world.

Betty-Lou Manizer is described as a bronzing luminizer, it has a coppery shimmery look. When I use it, I just sweep it across the cheeks for a healthy glow effect because the color is dark enough on me to be used as a cheek color, but it can also be applied lightly above a blush.

Mary-Lou Manizer is a shimmery luminizer/highlighter that just gives the most amazing glow to the face. I think the color (a pale champagne) is perfect for light to medium skin tone.

Overall, both products are extremely soft, buttery, pigmented, and packed with shimmer. The products will stay on me for at least 5 hours and then they will begin to rub off. So if you have a TheBalm counter in your area (I know these are sold in some London Drugs in Canada), these are definitely worth checking out, and the cute designs on the compact are a total bonus!
