I'm sure many of you know this, but for the last year or so Kevyn Aucoin's Celestial Powder has been my ultimate, holy-grail highlighter! I adore everything about it and that's still the case BUT I have to share some serious blog loving for the Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter.
If you've seen any of my Dubai vlogs/Instagram selflies over the last few weeks, you may notice an even more apparent highlight! That is because I have been fully getting involved with Mary-Lou Manizer and oh boy is it beautiful. When I first used it, I wasn't sure - I found it too obvious and I didn't like the almost metallic finish on my skin - to me, it appeared quite frosty. That was all down to the brush I was using, it didn't deposit the colour as softly as I'd of liked. Switch brushes and what do we get? OMG The most gorgeous, champagne-esque finish that leaves the skin looking radiant and dewy - A glow that rivals J-Lo's! It's so stunning and instantly awakens my (forever tired) face.
I always find it a little tricky with highlighters against my skin tone because too often they can look out of place and harsh against my colouring. I find Mary-Lou Manizer is a little more obvious than Kevyn Aucoin's Celestial Powder but they both work so well against my complexion - which is key!
Mary-Lou Manizer is the product you need to glow all year round and I don't know about you but when it comes to Winter my skin needs to be perked up and this is the perfect product to do that with. I mean why can't we glow in the Winter?
Have any of you tried this product? Check it out HERE on the Birchbox Store, a site that all you beauties should bookmark! It's currently a firm favourite in my make up bag - I told you I was loving the Balm cosmetics and I really meant it!
Lots of Love
