If I were to pick one product that I've seen the most on Youtube, it would probably be The Balm Cosmetic's Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter. I bought this when I first started seriously applying makeup, and I still have yet to hit pan on this highlighter. On the official website, the description for this highlighter states that this will add "a subtle glow" but I completely disagree. For me, Laura Mercier's Highlighter is the one that gives a subtle glow that is almost unnoticeable and natural, but the adjective 'subtle' does not apply to Mary-Lou Manizer. If you think Becca's highlighters gives you more brightness than you'd want, this is not for you as I find this one to be even more intense. This is the highlighter I pick up when I want my face to just literally glow.

This highlighter really flatters and blends right into my NC25 skin tone, and I like to apply this particularly on the bridge of my nose. On today's FOTD I went a bit heavy with my highlighting game so that my camera can capture its beauty, so whatever you see underneath my eyes near my cheekbones is this highlighter in action. Also, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE using this highlighter to brighten up the inner corners of my eyes. Sometimes, I even use this on my lids just to add a little more glamour to whatever eye makeup I have going. Personally, I use this more as an eyeshadow than I do as a highlighter.

On the swatches below, it may look a bit powdery but that's mainly because I've had this highlighter for so long. Mary-Lou Manizer is so soft and creamy and blends very nicely. The fact that the mirror flips 180 degrees is an absolute plus, and the packaging is so adorable. Overall, I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good highlighter to add an extra statement, and even if you think you would be overwhelmed by this as a highlighter, I would still recommend this as an eyeshadow!

  3. I love this on you! Also, that brightness you have in the center of your face is so lovely. I have Mary LouManizer, but I've been using pinkier highlighters lately and so I put Mary Loumanizer aside. I might have to get it out again because of how pretty it looks on you

  4. I've had this highlighter for the longest time! I hit pan and it shattered during a trip but I still use it. I don't like it for pictures because it gives me a sweaty sheen though. My all time favorite is Becca! I guess I like a lot of shimmer. I have the Hourglass ones too but I feel like I can't even see a difference when I put it on.
