I am really liking theBalm. It’s such a cute and fun brand which is exactly what I think makeup should be all about much of the time. Let’s just enjoy it!! The neutrals eye palette, Nude’Tude is really lovely – you can read about it and see all the swatches here.

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter is a great handbag product and it applies perfectly with fingertips so it is fabulous on the go. If I need to brighten up my look I take some on my finger and sweep it over my eyelids and right into the inner corners to really open up my eyes. It is the perfect brow bone highlight and also just beautiful along the tops of my cheekbones.

I think that my favourite place to use it is right on the cupid’s bow. This seriously enhances the shape and size of my lips and looks really pretty too.

It looks pretty shimmering in the pan and swatched like this, but it is actually very soft looking on the skin. The golden tone makes it very kind to older skins too and I find it doesn’t sink into my lines at all. Less is more and you can use it very sparingly for a beautiful effect. However, if you want to add drama, you can lay and build it up for a stunning result.

This is a heavy swatch, but the tiniest touch along the top of the cheekbones looks seriously pretty! I love it.

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter is available HERE. If you fancy it, snap it up for it sells out fairly regularly.
