Product Review -- The Balm Bonnie-Lou Manizer


Like a lot of people, the Mary-Lou Manizer from The Balm was probably my first really serious highlighting product.

It is a lovely champagne shade that can look super intense on the skin or blended out for a more subtle effect, making it a pretty versatile highlighter -- and to this day, it's one that I come back to again and again.

I also own the Betty-Lou Manizer, which is a bronze-y highlight shade, and Cindy-Lou Manizer, which is a peachy-pink highlight shade, and I like them both quite a bit too, though I don't get quite as much use out of them as I do with Mary-Lou.

So when I heard that The Balm was adding another highlighter to the line, I knew that I had to give it a try.

Product Review -- The Balm Foiled Again... Foil Eyeshadow Palette


I  am a huge fan of The Balm.

That's pretty well documented on this blog at this point.

Whenever they put a new palette out, I buy first, ask questions later.

(The only palette I haven't purchased is the Highlite 'N Con Tour Palette, just because I already have so many contour palettes and the shades don't look like they'd work for me. Though I'll probably cave and buy it if it every turns up on HauteLook or I can get a good deal on it somewhere else.)

Like so many other brands this holiday season, The Balm recently came out with a metallic  eyeshadow palette, the Foiled Again... Foil Eyeshadow Palette, and I was really excited to try this one out because I love me some metallic shadows.
