Today I am reviewing the most raved about highlighter, its ‘Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter’. If you love that Jennifer Lopez glow then this is the perfect highlighter for you. Mary Lou Manizer provides the perfect amount of sheen and glow to the skin and of course you can tone it up/down according to your preferences. But is it worth 24$ ? Read fully to know!!

What the company claims?

Meet Mary Lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer that catches everybody’s eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow.

How did Mary Lou Manizer Highlighter work for me

The Highlighter took the makeup world by storm. The first thing you will notice before the product is the packaging. It comes in a sleek and sturdy plastic case with retro mug shot image with a mirror attached on to the underside of the lid which is great for on the go. It is a gorgeous golden-champagne powder highlighter and it can be used as a cheek highlighter & also as an eyeshadow. The powder is finely milled and it doesn’t contain any chunky or obvious glitters or shimmers. It is super blend-able and doesn’t go patchy or anything. It can be worn by pretty much on any skin tones which makes it all the more popular.

It has 8.5g of product but you need to be very light-handed every time you use it because it is super duper pigmented. A single swipe is all you need for the entire face and it is worth every penny. If you are on the fence then I would highly recommend you get it. On the highest points of the face, for a light sheen use a fan brush and if you are into the intense highlighting then use an eyeshadow blending brush or you can even use the Sigma F86 or F25 for that fierce glow. 😀 Don’t be afraid to experiment you might even like the bold look you’ve shied away to try all these years.
