theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter - review, photos, swatches

Hello lovelies~
RO: Pentru azi am pregatit un nou review la un produs pe care l-am vazut laudat de milioane de ori atat in blogosfera romaneasca si internationala, dar si pe la YouTube-eri & make-up artisti renumiti.
Stiti ca uneori este un pic enervant cand vedeti atata hype in jurul unui produs care poate fi bun sau se dovedeste a fi doar "agitatia" de el. Ei bine, nu este cazul cu acest produs.
Va prezint cu mandrie febletea mea pe nume Mary-Lou Manizer, aka "the Luminazer". Goodness gracious, ambalajele de la theBalm sunt amuzante, vintage, sassy, si le ador! :))
Lasand la o parte mania mea pentru amabalaje dragalase si originale, iluminatorul asta isi merita toate monedele.
Unde il puteti gasi?
Pai in general dati de el in Sephora, Superdrug *pentru cine nu locuieste in Romania* sau in Marionnaud, dar daca nu aveti un magazin de genul prin zona, gasiti theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer si online pe aoro.
O sa va dau si cateva informatii despre aoro pentru ca au fost destul de multe fete care m-au intrebat de serviciile lor cand am postat machiajele pentru paletutele de la Makeup Revolution. Apropo, mai am sa va arat cateva bunatati de la ei, asa ca stati pe aproape!
Dar destula vorbareala, sa trecem la review ca de asta sunteti aici.

ENG: Just look at those healthy looking beams! ❤ The 1st photo is taken in natural light, that's how it actually shows on the skin. The 2nd it's how you see this highlighter in the sunlight and the 3rd is just a swipe over the product. The texture feels so smooth, so buttery and oh-em-geeee~ you need to be extra careful how you apply it because it is THAT pigmented! I don't think i will finish this product anytime soon! :))
***
What do i like most about this product? Well, it's a highlighter that really highlights! :))
You girlies know that some highlighters are not so pigmented and you have to put on layer after layer just so you can get something to show on your skin. That can look heavy and may accentuate your pores or make you look greasy. And some highlighters are just horrible because they have chunks of glitter in them. I still haven't met a girl who likes big showy chunks of glitter plastered on her face. Well, if you're going for the disco-ball look, then by all means, go for glitter if it makes you feel better!
Mary-Lou Manizer is not the subtlest highlighter, but it's not in-your-face either if you apply it carefully. People are raving and recommending this product so much because it gives you that subtle, healthy glow, and it doesn't look fake.

RO: Mamma-mia, imi place la nebunie iluminatorul asta! In prima poza am prezentat o poza facuta in lumina naturala, adica asa arata pe piele acest iluminator. A doua poza a fost facuta in soare ca sa ii vedeti sclipareala, iar in a treia poza am trecut usor degetul peste pudra. Textura este atat de fina, usor cremos-pudrata si OMG! trebuie sa fiti super atente cand aplicati acest iluminator pentru ca da, este atat de pigmentat! Nu cred ca o sa-l termin in viitorul apropiat! :))
***
Ce imi place cel mai si cel mai mult la acest produs? Pai ilumineaza maica! :))
Stiti ca unele highlightere sunt mai slab pigmentate si trebuie sa insistati un pic pana se vede ceva. Unele sunt si mai groaznice pentru ca au bucati de sclipici, si nah~ cui ii place sa aiba bucăţoaie pe sclipici pe fata? Bine, daca mergeti pe look-ul gen disco-ball, then by all means, wear what makes you feel better!
Mary-Lou Manizer nu este cel mai subtil iluminator, dar nu este nici prea evident daca este aplicat corect. Este atat de laudat si apreciat pentru ca ofera un look glowy, subtil, sanatos, care nu arata fake.

ENG: A couple of useful tips:
- it's really pigmented so take a little product and blend it well with a brush, then you can take some more if you want aliens to see you from space;
- don't take too much on your brush and apply it directly on your cheekbones because it will make your pores/wrinkles look bigger;
- for fair skin tone, the best highlighter would be the one in champagne tones like Mary-Lou Manizer;
- for light-medium skin types, a pink-champagne color like Cindy-Lou Manizer would look great;
- for medium, olive, bronzed, dark skin tones, the most suitable would be bronzers in teracotta, golden shades like Betty-Lou Manizer, or even Mary-Lou Manizer because the shimmery champagne with subtle gold tones suits every skin tone.

RO: Cateva sfaturi utile:
- iluminatorul este foarte pigmentat asa ca nu trebuie sa luati decat putin produs pe pensula, blenduiti bine, apoi puteti sa mai luati din el si sa aplicati daca doriti sa fiti un semnalizator pentru extraterestri;
- nu va imbibati pensula cu produs in ideea ca lasa ca oricum vreau sa stralucesc ca un licurici toata noaptea pentru ca n-o sa reusiti decat sa va evidentiati porii si ridurile fine;
- pentru pielea mai deschisa, ideal ar fi sa folositi un iluminator in culoarea sampaniei cum ar fi Mary-Lou Manizer;
- pentru pielea deschisa-medie, nuante de pink-champagne cum ar fi Cindy-Lou Manizer;
- pentru nuantele maslinii, inchise sau bronzate, li se potrivesc de minune bronzerele in culori teracotta, aurii, precum Betty-Lou Manizer, dar si Mary-Lou Manizer, care se potriveste chiar peste orice tip de ten.

Totusi, daca nu sunteti obisnuite cu iluminatoarele si vreti sa incercati ceva mai soft, vi le recomand pe cele de la Makeup Revolution, Catrice sau paletutele trio de la essence. Toate aceste branduri drugstore au preturi mai accesibile, iar gradul de pigmentare poate fi controlat. Acum depinde de gustul fiecaruia.

ENG: I have used this highlighter in my previous make-up looks so be sure to check them out too.
Well, what do you girls think about this product? Is it tempting? Or did you tried it yet?

RO: Am mai folosit acest iluminator si in ultimele look-uri, asa ca nu uitati sa aruncati un ochi si pe acolo.
Ei bine, ce parere aveti despre acest produs? V-ar tenta? Sau l-ati incercat deja?

Have a lovely day!
