Mary-Lou glow is amazing - 16-11-2018 by

I use the Mary-lou shade and I love it. It is a great, everyday highlight. I get compliments on my highlighter all the time.

Love Mary-lou - 16-11-2018 by

Love this highlighter. I have Mary-Lou & it’s such a beautiful highlighter. Feels light on the skin & so easy to apply. My go to each day

its a cult classic and good quality and you wouldn't be disappointed - 13-11-2018 by

The balm in generally makes good quality makeup with adorable packaging and the Manizers are essentials not to glittery buildable and finely milled and pressed,With adorable packaging and a flattering shade for all completions its a definite classic and safe bet.

Mary Lou - 31-10-2018 by

This is so pretty it has a nice subtle glow it’s not very intense love this for during the day

Pigmented but a little chunky - 30-10-2018 by

The color of this highlighter is great but for me, it’s a little chunky on the skin, particularly areas where I have a bit of uneven texture. I find myself using this more as a wash of highlight on my eyelids or as a brow bone highlight than a cheekbone one, as I prefer a more natural sheen.

Love these highlighters - 29-10-2018 by

Cheap highlighter! Good quality. I don't love the bronze colour but all the rest are fab

Love it! - 19-10-2018 by

I’m so happy with this highlighter! It’s fantastic for my pale skin as there isn’t much colour pigment in this. The formula has just the right amount of glitter on it so that it shimmers but isn’t too sparkly. It’s lovely and builds easily. This will be a staple in my kit for sure!

Mary-Lou - 19-10-2018 by

Love this highlighter, my first proper highlighter I’ve bought on its own not in a palette and it’s such a pretty colour!

Just not in bright sunlight - 19-10-2018 by

I love this highlighter however I've had a lot of men at my work ask "why do I have glitter on my face" not realising how glittery it looks in the light. Very, very gorgeous highlighter, however just not for everydays as I found it made me look a bit too "done up" compared to my other options in the beauty case.

Mary - Lou amazing highlighter!!! - 18-10-2018 by

I love this product it’s such a pretty sheen highlighter not glittery chunks at all! Always come back to it because it’s pretty!

Mary Lou -Favourite powder highlghter - 17-10-2018 by

I recently purchased Charlotte Tilbury's bronze and glow, but I keep reaching for this highlighter over Charlotte Tilbury's. This highlighter is a beautiful champagne colour and has just the right amount of sparkle. It lend easily, and I even put it over cream blushes and find it doesn't go patchy. And its super affordable.

MaryLou is great! - 04-10-2018 by

This was the first highlighter I have ever owned and it started my obsession. The color is beautiful, it leaves a lovely sheen on the skin.

Mary LouManizer - 25-09-2018 by

Such a great, affordable highlighter and really pigmented. Love this on cheeks or inner corners of the eye. I am moving towards cream highlighters for a more natural look particularly during the day but I will still use this for nights out.

Love the colour - 25-09-2018 by

I love the colour of the Mary Loumanizer on my pale/freckled skin, and finally got around to trying this highlighter. This has nice pop, but mostly made up of chunky glitter/sheen which isn't what I look for in a highlighter. I also find the 'largeness' of these particles accentuates my eye lines, which I find unflattering. Not bad for the price, but I end up using my Physicians Formula Shimmer Strip for daily use.

Mary-lou manizer - 18-09-2018 by

i have this and the becca champagne pop and they are so similar, this highlighter was my go to for ages and it looks high end on but without the price tags, its such a nice glowy finish

You’d think it was high end - 12-09-2018 by

This highlighter is my ride or die. I have really pale skin and this just looks so flawless every time. So pigmented and is so so blinding. I love it and always use it, so insanely cheap for what it is.

MaryLouManizer - 11-09-2018 by

This just continues to amaze me. The colour is unlike any highlighter I own with hints of gold, champagne and pearl. I will have one of these in my collection as long as I live.

A great highlighter - Mary-Lou Manizer - 10-09-2018 by

This was one of my first highlighters and definitely a great one. The texture is fine, smooth and blends effortlessly on the skin, leaving a beautiful glow. I find this shade to look great on light - medium complexions. It lasts for a long time on the skin and is suitable for the day and buildable to achieve a beaming highlight for the night time. Overall a great highlight product at a appropriate price point.

A good bet! - 10-09-2018 by

I've had Mary-Lou in my makeup bag for a while now and it's one of my go to highlighters. It has a nice champagne sheen with a slight gold (ish) undertone. This product is very buildable and I like to occasionally mix with other highlighters to get the specific look I want and it works well in that way too. I'd especially recommend for those who want the option of having the natural highlighter look or the more heavy (beaming) highlighter look because imo this product is great for both!

Not for deep tan/dark/deep skin tones! - 30-08-2018 by

I love love love peach highlighters,I think they are super flattering and really wanted it to work for me but my skin is too dark for this highlighter. Light/medium/tan would look AMAZING in this highlighter. The manizer highlighters are AMAZING and super buttery, pure sheen rather than glittery (which i hate and routinely avoid). This particular colour is just not for me, IF YOU LOOK GOOD INMARY then you will look good in this

Betty-Lou, oh my stars - 30-08-2018 by

It's an EXTREMELY buttery highlighter!!! Sometimes that's my undoing because it's hard to put on a brush to face (for me personally) but i have both betty and mary and i prefer betty because Im a deep tan skin colour (MAC NC45 for reference)

Love it - 21-08-2018 by

Cindy Lou-Manizer is such a beautiful shimery blush, but the Mary-Loumanizer is one of my favourite highlighters of all time!!! Gives a beautiful, smooth glow to the skin and leaves the face looking smooth and lit from within. Such a great price also.

Great affordable highlighters - 21-08-2018 by

Mary Lou Ma user is a lovely highlight shade for my skin which is light. Really nice quality for an affordable product

Great for tan skin - 20-08-2018 by

Tried all manizers except bonnie. I have pale skin and they looked ok on me, but on my sister who has more tan skin - just WOW. the highlight really popped on her skin and the bronzer wasn't too orange.

Best affordable highlighter! - 20-08-2018 by

Mary-Lou Manizer is my go to highlighter for every day and for a good reason! It's affordable but still one of the best on the market today. On days when I want a subtle highlight I will just add one layer but I love how I can also layer it up on days when I need a more blinding highlight. This highlighter also works when I am pale and with fake tan. When I try new highlighters I always find myself going back to this one and now I keep back ups of this stuff so I never run out!

Beautiful highlighters and bronzers - 17-08-2018 by

Betty Lou-manizer is a beautiful shimmery bronzer for my fair skin. Mary Lou-manizer is beautiful for a highlighter. I do find that it is not as fine as some other powders I have so it does come out as a more glittery look

Beaming! - 16-08-2018 by

I bought the Mary Lou-Manizer due to a few people saying it was great and it was definitely worth it! It is perfect for my olive skin tone, and looks amazing on the inner corners of my eyes. It leaves me looking shimmery after just one application, and I get so many compliments when wearing it. For an ultra gliterry look, wet the brush/blender you are applying it with!

Mary Luminizer Power - 15-08-2018 by

If you're into super shimmer/highlight (and don't mind a chunkier shimmer) then you will love this. It does a very intense job and highlighting the face (but I prefer the more subtle Hourglass highlighters...) Would still recommend if this is your thing though!

Gives the perfect smooth illumination - 14-08-2018 by

I always have trouble with highlighters being too sparkly/frosty/shimmery, how’ve the Mary-loumaniser is the first highlight I’ve had that leaves a really smooth silky glow without bringing out the texture on my face. However it still gives enough of a sheen for night time as it’s very buildable!

SO bright - 13-08-2018 by

Gives me such a lovely and glowy look! A little product goes such a long way and everyone always compliments me on it!

Pretty good - 07-08-2018 by

A really nice highlighter, blends well and gives me a nice glow. also love the packaging

Intense highlighter - 02-08-2018 by

I was really excited to try this highlighter based on the reviews but it is just a little too intense for me. It's great for a glam look on a night out but to wear during the day it is just a little too white and bright. I also find it wears off quickly on the cupids bow and can end up looking cake on the inner corners of the eyes.. Still I will keep using it when I want to ramp it up on a night out

Love it! - 02-08-2018 by

I LOVE this and is definately a must buy. Highlighting perfection!

Favourite - 25-07-2018 by

Mary-Lou is a must-have cult favourite, literally a highlighter junkie's staple. Great formula!

Love these! - 18-07-2018 by

I love these highlighters. They are my go to for every day looks. So pigmented, apply great - not chalky or clumpy, and this pack is great for trying all three shades!

All time fav Mary Lou - 18-07-2018 by

I absolutely love this highlighter! I have tried so many different highlighters both high end and drugstore ones, and this still tops the list for me :')! Would def recommend to girls with olive skin complexion like me.

LOVE! - 16-07-2018 by

I have the set of three manizers and love all of them! I use each of them every single day. I find they're suitable for my pale, untanned skin but also look great when I do have a fake tan on. LOVE. Highly recommend.

Mary-Lou is my homegirl - 16-07-2018 by

This product is gorgeous. Buildable so you can wear it to work or glow on a night out. The color compliments everyone who uses it and the actual compact will last you forever. My absolute favorite highlighter.

Cult Favourite! and so affordable - 16-07-2018 by

This is probably the best "cheap" highlighters on the market. It gives a gorgeous champagne glow and it lasts forever!

I adore this highlight for an intense wet look shine to the cheeks for a reasonable price. Love it

Must try - 11-07-2018 by

I've used Mary-Lou and I really love it. I have medium skin tone and this highlighter gives me a lovely glow. The highlighter itself is quite pigmented/shimmery champagne colour. You only need a little, but it is easily buildable for a more dramatic effect.

LOVE - 10-07-2018 by

love, love, love! the mary loumanizer is my absolute favourite highlight!! gives such a nice, glowy look!

Amazing! - 09-07-2018 by

This is honestly my favourite highlighter ever! It is so incredibly pigmented and gives the most amazing radiant glow. I use this all over my face for a glowing and luminous look, focussing on the high points of my face.This highlighter doesn't make me look oily or shiny at all, just really healthy and glowing! I would definitely recommend this for all skin tones.

Blinding! - 06-07-2018 by

Mary-Lou is BLINDINGLY gorgeous, definitely beats a lot of high end highlighters.

Just WOW!!! - 06-07-2018 by

I have plenty of highlighters yet this is the one that I keep coming back to. It’s such a lovely colour and really makes my face pop and gives me a radiant glow.

Mary-Lou is a must-have - 04-07-2018 by

Mary-Lou was one of the first highlighters I bought and it still holds a special place. The champagne tone suits a variety of skin tones and it blends beautifully into the skin. Not glittery or chunky, its truly a beautiful product.

Good Highlighter but better out there! - 02-07-2018 by

I bought this highlighter to use for everyday use with minimal makeup! It is a good highlighter and is quite pigmented but I do believe there is better out there! However, it is pretty good value for money compared to other highlighters out there that are much more expensive! I probably wouldn't purchase again as I'd rather use a more pigmented one such as MAC but if you are wanting one for everyday use at a decent price then this one is good!

AMAZING. - 02-07-2018 by

I absolutely love mary lou-manizer! I would compare it to an affordable version of Rodeo Drive by Ofra!

Mary Lou is truly the best - 02-07-2018 by

The Mary Loumanizer is one of the best highlighters on the market. It's a beautiful finely milled and bendable, highly pigmented and buttery formula and is a stunning champagne yellow gold shade. It blends into the skin seamlesly and finishes off any makeup look. I also love using it on my eyes. An all round excellent product.

mary lou is a fave - 29-06-2018 by

I love Mary Lou and has been using it non stop since i got it. A little bit goes a long way but i think it can be build up for a more intense glow. The consistency is really soft and easily blended. A must have in my makeup collection!

Holy Grail - 26-06-2018 by

I love love love this highlighter! It is fantastic on my very pale skin. A little goes a long way, if used lightly it is great to give you an everyday glow, but can be built up to a brilliant gleam. I use it on my cheekbones, Cupid’s bow, brow bone, as an inner eye highlight & occasionally with eyeshadow- probably one of my all time favourite products.

Definitely does it's job - 22-06-2018 by

the marylou definitely does it's job. I read all the rave reviews so tried it -and it live up to it's rep. I personally prefer cream highlighters and this is maybe just s little too intense for my style so don't think I'll get this on again- but If you like powders this a strong high lighters then this is a for you. it is a beautiful highlighter and a little goes a long way.

SO BUTTERY! - 22-06-2018 by

I have bonnie-lou and it is a gorgeoussss gold highlight. I have NC45 skin, and it suits me very well. It is a true gold, or just slightly deeper than a true gold. I severely dislike highlighters with glitter in it and am thrilled to say that this does not have a single bit of glitter. Pure glow! Would recommend 10/10!

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! - 19-06-2018 by

I got this as a gift and am absolutely in love with it!! mary loumaniser is a beautiful shade for any skin tone and can be used for a sheer glow or layered onto wet skin for an intense highlight

Beautiful on pale skin! - 11-06-2018 by

Love this on my pale skin. It’s not glittery, but still gives you that bright shine or subtle glow depending how oh apply it! A+++

Mary lou is the PERFECT highlight shade - 06-06-2018 by

I am so obsessed with this highlight, looks beautiful on my skin tone and stays on all day. Will be repurchasing this forever!

Perfect glow! - 04-06-2018 by

I have the Mary-Lou Manizer after seeing all the rave recommendations. I have fair skin and this works perfectly for natural day to day office wear and also you can build it up for more blinding highlight. The powder is very finely milled and little fall out. It is a great price for the quality of the highlighter.

Perfect highlighter - 23-05-2018 by

I have the Mary-Lou Manizer and I love it. I have pretty fair skin and its the perfect colour. This is my go-to highlighter when I'm wearing a full face of makeup. I usually apply it lightly for a more natural glow but it can definitely be built up for a more dramatic look. It's really finely milled and blends perfectly.

Beautiful! - 18-05-2018 by

I love this highlighter. It’s such a great colour and looks great as an inner eye corner highlight too

Favourite highlighter ever! - 16-05-2018 by

I own so many highlighters it's not funny but I always come back to this one - Mary-Lou Manizer. It's so pretty and blinding on my fair skin and lats forever even though I'm so oily. Definitely get this you won't regret it!

The best! - 14-05-2018 by

The best highlighter a girl could ever have.
I always got comments whenever I used this product.
Definitely considering purchasing again.
Beautiful product - Soft, yet just enough highlighter.
It's really an amazing product and great value, considering what's out there!
Sad I ran out of mine really!

I LOVE MARY-LOU - 08-05-2018 by

I've wanted this highlighter for months but it was always sold out. I finally found it while on a trip to New York City and it was worth the wait. It's great for those pale girls like me. It's buildable and gives you a great glow. Worth the money.

Mary lou is actually good for pale skin - 29-04-2018 by

Initially I wasn't sure because of the colour but its actually very pretty on pale NW8-10 skin.

Best highlighter I've found - 21-02-2018 by

This is my favourite highlighter, I found it better than the hourglass one. Has a nice sheen, reasonable price and lasts forever. Highly recommend!

My saviour - 27-11-2017 by

I’ve been looking for a simple, subtle and tonally appropriate way to add a touch of glow to my skin as I approach my mid-50s. Beauty experts tell me a subtle dewy shine will help reflect/deflect light and make my complexion appear more youthful and translucent. Well this stuff is IT. I simply adore Mary-Lou for all over face highlighting. Everything I could want and more. A soft glow if I use just a touch here and there for daytime; a sexy glamour glow if I go a bit heavier for nighttime. I am also a person who prefers nude style eyeshadows and I prefer to accentuate my eyes with liners and mascara, so Mary-Lou also goes on my lids. Such a simple quick step for a fantastic result over my entire face. I also use Cindy-Lou for blush on special occasions. I should be keeping this to myself but the more people who buy this product the more likely it will be available forever. So buy up girls!!!! But save some for me.

Lovely subtle glow! - 13-11-2017 by

I love them all! I use them over the top of my contpur and blush for a bit of extra pop, makes my cupids bow stand out amazingly and hoghlights my temples just right!

Beautiful highlighter - 05-11-2017 by

I first bought the Cindy Lou-Manizer and loved it so much I also purchased the other two shades. They work so well as highlighter, blush, bronzer and even eyeshadow. You also get a huge amount of product for the price point. Definitely well worth it!

Great highlighter! - 26-10-2017 by

I absolutely love this! I bought the Mary-lou Manizer and it has become a part of my everyday makeup routine. It can be used as a natural everyday highlighter or it can be built up for a more intense look. It has great pigment and looks great on lots of skin tones. Would definitely recommend this product!

Love! - 16-10-2017 by

This is a great highlighter (Mary Lou Manizer). In fact I have never bought another one since purchasing this, because I don't see myself liking one more? I guess I also don't see the point in different coloured highlighters, and this one suits my skin tone when I'm pale and when I have fake tan. It's also light enough to wear every day, and can be made look more dramatic when I go out at night.

Mary-Lou - lives up to the hype - 28-09-2017 by

This was sold out whenever I tried to buy it in store- I finally got my hands on it and it does live up to the hype. Great for pale skin and not too shimmery!

Love! - 16-06-2017 by

Absolutely love this highlighter, the pigmentation is incredible! I'm in love and Adore Beauty has such fast shipping and that's without express shipping!

Absolutely beautiful ! - 22-10-2016 by

I purchased the Mary Lou Manizer and Betty Lou Manizer, and I love them! They are both now included in my everyday makeup, and i have honestly not found anything better for the price :)

LOVE THIS HIGHLIGHTER - 05-09-2016 by

I have heard nothing but good reviews about this highlighter thought i would purchase the Mary Lou and it does not disappoint absolutely stunning you can wear it as a subtle highlight or a BAM in your face highlight very pigmented. A MUST in my make up bag.

holy grail highlighter - 01-06-2016 by

the pigmentation of this highlighter is excellent and can be easily buildable. Impress with the customer service of this, item arrived in less than 2 days and that's without express shipping

cindy-lou is amazing - 30-11-2015 by

so happy with it, so smooth and leaves a beautiful shine.

Gorgeous pink highlighter (cindy-lou) - 18-09-2015 by

Wow i just love this, it's a cool pink tone highlighter that goes perfectly either on top of your blush, used as a shimmer eye shadow/inner eye corners/brow bone or used as you would a regular highlighter (bridge of nose, cupids bow, above cheek bones etc). I am a fair yellow toned oilve skinned girl and this this works. I was skeptical and originally wanted mary-lou which was out of stock but I'm so glad i got this.
The only negative thing i have to say is that it's a very dry product. Even though it's shimmery, it's has quite a matte finish. Which isn't a problem but i really love the dewy finish that gives a wet look.
But I would still buy it again and recommend it.
Packaging is fabulous

Beautiful golden sheen - 27-08-2014 by

I rate this a new holy grail product - it's the slightly buttery golden twin to my all time fave highlighter Smashbox Shimmers Halo or Napoleon Perdis Blushing Bride color disc (dupe for the Smashbox)... eek, gorgeous!

Amazing Highlighter! - 11-08-2014 by

I got The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer. This stuff is AMAZING! It's really buildable so you can use a heavy or light hand depending on what you like to get the look you want. It's such a fine shimmer too so you wont get the glittery bits you find in some of the lesser quality Highlighters. Also, cruelty free brand! I will definitely be re-purchasing.

A little goes a long way - 24-07-2013 by

Got the Mary-Lou Manizer, it's a nice shimmery gold/champagne colour. Works well as a highlighter, just a little dab on the fingers is enough to blend in nicely. The compact was larger than I expected so this will last me for a long time considering how little I need each time. Definitely getting this again once I run out.
