Today I bring you Betty-Lou Manizer and Mary-Lou Manizer, 2 very popular products from The Balm Cosmetics.
Both of these products are very shimmery and not subtle in the least. Betty-Lou is a gorgeous bronzer and Mary-Lou is a highlighter.
Betty-Lou Manizer should be used as an all over bronzer, not a contour shade because it's so shimmery. I like to apply it last with a big powder brush for a nice glow. Swatches below.
Mary-Lou is a gorgeous champagne highlighter. I love using this over my cheekbones, on my brownbone, and the inner corners of my eyes. It gives a very pretty highlighted shimmer to any evening look. I've tried to wear this during the day and because it's so shimmery, you either need to use a TINY amount or your highlight is completely obvious. Some days I'm ok with that though! Swatches below.

I actually purchased these 2 products on Hautelook for 50% off, so I paid $12 for each. They retail for $24 each on The Balm website.
Hautelook is a wonderful flash sale website which you can sign up for HERE. Everyday they have flash sales on different brands including our favorite brands like Becca, Stila, NuMe, and more!
