Once again, I've fallen in love with theBalm packaging! The other day I reviewed Frat Boy, well now I have Betty Lou Manizer for you. A unique bronzer/luminizer in an adorable tin. This is a very shimmery bronzer that I can't imagine using on my eyes, but on my cheeks only. I love the silky smooth texture of the product and it won't look powdery. Of course it contains a nice mirror too. I can't stand when blushes or bronzers don't contain a mirror.
What it is described as:
A silky smooth pressed powder that can be used as a bronzer, eye shadow, and all-over shimmer.
What it does:
This all-in-one bronzer, shadow, and shimmer uses mica to diffuse light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding subtle warmth. The oil-free formula can be layered on your lids for a luxe look, swept on your cheeks for a radiant glow, or used as an all-over finish before heading out for the night.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
Tons of shimmer, you can see the color on my skin is much different then your typical bronzer. I think Betty Lou would look much better on a darker skin tone though, if you use too much and have a fair skin tone, (like myself) you might get an orange fake look.
But just the right amount will leave a nice glow on your face, and I always like to add bronzer around my forehead and neck. So I can see this pot lasting a long long time, because unlike a lot of bronzers in my collection, a little goes a long way. I really should stop calling this a bronzer because it's more of a luminizer and shouldn't be used in the same ways a bronzer should. I would recommend using a tiny amount of this, just to create a little more of a glowing effect. I can't wait to get a great tan again, so Betty Lou will look fabulous!
