Product Review | theBalm theManizer Sisters Palette

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Do you want to fake beautiful, healthy, glowing skin? This magical trio is for you!

theBalm's Betty-Lou Manizer has been a long time favorite bronzer of mine. Even though I usually reach for matte bronzers, this has such a beautiful subtle sheen that doesn't emphasize and texture or pores. It's not really something you'd use for contouring but more so to warm up the skin.

My latest obsession with highlighters left me longing for the Mary-Lou Manizer and that's when I fell upon theManizer Sisters Palette. HOLY TOLEDO! Talk about great value.

This conveniently packaged palette offers a small size of the Betty-Lou Manizer, Mary-Lou Manizer and Cindy-Lou Manizer face powders. Now, one individual compact gets you 8g of product and this one gives you 10g of product...So in total, you get a bit more than one full sized product, but for $4 more. Therefore, when I mean good value, I'm not necessarily implying you get more bang for your buck. However, I don't know about you, but when you collect/try as many products as I do, it's really hard to hit pan on some of them before they "expire" (we can talk about that in an other article).

And not only that, all 3 products just work wonderfully together. A little 3 shaped motion on the sides of the face with a big brush of Betty-Lou to bronze up the skin, a little stipple brush with Cindy-Lou over top or in lieu of your blush (I like to "luminize" the top part of my matte blush where it meets the highlighter, if that makes sense?) and Mary-Lou as a highlighter (top of cheek bones, brow bone, down the nose, cupid bow, etc.) and bam! You are a glowing goddess.

On top of being a quality product (super pigmented and creamy and applies beautifully), it's super compact and travel friendly, so you can look flawless on the go! Oh and all shades can also be used as gorgeous eye shadows. I mean for $28 bucks? Sign me up!

Quite frankly, I've been using this nearly every single day, wether as part as a quick and effortless wide wake look (BB Cream, This, Mascara, good to go!) or on top of a full face of makeup (foundation, concealer, contouring) to really pack a punch! Especially if you tend to use a lot of matte products like I do, it's a great way to add flattering dimension to the face and make the whole thing look a lot more natural and beautiful.

I highly recommend this to anyone who's looking to perfect their complexion and/or wanting a great introduction to theBalm's products. As mentioned, it retails for $28 and you can pick it up at Kohl's or order it online or directly from theBalm's website as well.

Have you tried any of the Manizer sisters? (Is it just me or that sounds wrong? haha)

Talk to you soon,
