After being a High Beam only user for many years I decided it was time to invest in a powder highlighter. I got a gorgeous Laura Mercier one for my birthday last year (which I hope to review soon) but it's quite intense and more suited to an evening look, so when I saw the Mary-Lou Manizer by theBalm, it looked like just the product for me.
I got this back in November and have used it a lot since then and it still looks barely touched so I think it will last me a long time. As you can see above it's quite pigmented, but used with a light touch it gives your face a gorgeous, subtle glow. The packaging is very cute (reminiscent of Benefit/Soap and Glory) and durable (I've dropped mine a few times and it hasn't smashed).
I still like High Beam for when I want a really natural glow, but this just gives your face a great shape, I really don't like using bronzer as way of contouring my face as I'm just too fair for it, but I think highlighter can do just as good a job of shaping your cheekbones. I hope the photos above demonstrate that. The powder has a smooth velvety texture similar to that of Urban Decay eyeshadows which makes it easy to apply.
For €18.75, it's a more affordable version of the Dior and Laura Mercier highlighters and I think it's just as good.
