The Balm Bonnie Lou-Manizer Review
I love The Balm Cosmetics, it's the first high end brand I believe I ever purchased from. I never really have the urge to buy everything from one particular brand but I really enjoy picking up just about everything they do. See the Bonnie-Lou Manizer highlight in action in this Instagram video
New Bonnie Lou Manizer Highlighter 
Their "Lou Manizers" are their highlights that have been out for some time. They are a super intense highlight that has been around since before super intense highlights were such a thing. These highlighters retail for $24 USD.  Anyways, Bonne-Lou Manizer is the latest addition to the bunch, and a welcomed addition. They had a pale champagne, blush pink, and bronze but a classic gold was what I was missing.

The formula on the Lou Manizers is super soft, so be careful, they can break easily. On the skin they have almost a wet look, you can go super lightly with a fluffy brush or use something more dense to build intensity. There's no glitter, but a very intense shimmer.

Overall, if you didn't already guess, I love this highlighter. I'm a little bias I guess because I love my Lou-Manizers and I'm so glad to have a gold in the mix.

  2. Gosh...I was really just gazing at this for weeks all unimpressed like and you just made me want it. It looks so naturally glowy in that pic.

  3. Crazy I've been searching for a review on this on YouTube because I wanted to see Bonnie Lou on a woman of color especially compared to Betty ( most of all) but Mary too. I just randomly found your blog on google and I just so happen to already be subscribed to you on youtube so I'm praying you will post a video of it soon love your channel
