A couple of months ago, The Balm added another illuminating powder to their lineup. If you are familiar with The Balm Cosmetics, I’m sure you know that some of their most popular products are the “Lou-Manizer’s”. Pretty much every beauty blogger I know owns either Mary Lou-Manizer or Betty Lou-Manizer if not both. Little sister, Cindy Lou-Manizer is the newest addition that is marketed as a blush and subtle highlight. So how does it work on deeper skin? Keep reading if you would like to find out!
So as you can see in the picture above, Cindy differs from the Mary and Betty because it actually has some color to it. I imagine on fair skin, it will make a really pretty blush. On my skin, this shows up as a golden pinky-peach highlighter. Although it is a highlighter, it is not extremely shimmery and contains no glitter. Cindy is more of a subtle highlight that looks beautiful on top on pink, peach, or coral blushes. I like to wear it most with pink blushes.
So, is this product a must have? I would say no, but it is an awesome pink highlighter that doesn’t turn ashy on my cheeks. Also, did I mention, that all 3 illuminating powders from the Balm are safe to be used as eyeshadows too? I can definitely see myself using this as an eyeshadow in the future. Cindy Lou-Manizer is a hit for me!
I picked this product up from HauteLook for around $12, so keep an eye out for it on there if you’re interested.
Have you tried any of the Lou-Manizer sisters? Which one is your favorite?
