theBalm Betty Lou Manizer Review




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:

- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan







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!

Betty Lou Manizer is available for $24 at theBalm.com and of as always, Sephora.

    just got it a couple days ago; I absolutely lovee this color, although I have to admit I don't really know how to wear it..

    I have light/medium skin, so it definitely shows up as dark--but it's so shimmery and reflective that, depending on lighting, it could almost be a highlighter.
