mary lou-manizer by the balm cosmetics is a powder highlighter that you can purchase online or at khols. it is an intense pearlized champagne color that is going to cost you $24.00.
- beautiful shimmer
- intense pigment
- packing provides a lot of product in the pan, and the compact includes a mirror
- powder finish, easy to apply and blend
the reason i am comparing these two highlighters is because of how intensely pigmented they both are, and how they pick up and swatch on the skin. mary lou-manizer is a cult favorite because of it’s ability to literally highlight your face so it can be seen from space! and soo glow! is a brand new launch from essence cosmetics so i was excited to pick up something new. once i tried this on my cheek bones, i immediately knew it was going to be my new favorite. i want my highlight to be “on fleek”, flawless and dewy–and instead of having to spend $24, i can recommend to you a product that is effective, easy to use, and affordable!
