My faves from The Balm

Hey loves!

I hope you’ve all had a great Christmas break and your gearing up for 2016!

I got a couple the balm pieces for Christmas and thought I’d review them for you guys as I love their products!

I received the The Manizer sisters, containing Mary-Lou Manizer (I have the full size product which I’m totally obsessed with) Cindy-Lou Manizer and Betty-Lou Manizer

My first impression of this pallete is it’s really cute and perfect for on the go, I love the cute packaging using pin up girls and there’s a cute play on words with all of their products,

Mary-Lou Manizer

I love this highlighter ! I’m simply obsessed with it I use it almost everyday and put on slightly more when I’m out in the evening, it’s perfect for most skin tones (although darker tones beware, it can look ashy)

It has a perfect gold tone and isn’t too shimmery or glittery which I like, it’s also great for the eyes too, (I love using it on the inner corner of the eye makes them pop!)

Cindy-Lou Manizer

This one I haven’t played around with as much it’s a pinky toned and can be used on eyes or as a highlight or blush the colour is beautiful but I prefer the Mary-Lou to highlight, so will be using this as a eyeshadow I reckon.

Betty-Lou Manizer

This is a beautiful bronzer! I love teaming this with Mary-Lou to contour, it’s not a flat matte bronzer has a slight shimmer but nothing too sparky which is ideal for contouring.

I also received Frat boy shadow/blush which is far better than I thought.
Frat boy is a lovely flat matte rosey pink, the pigment in it is really good so a little goes a long way, it’s a great blush and will take me through all seasons.

Although these were gifts (so unsure where they were purchased) You can purchase the Manizer sister palette on or here and the Frat boy blush here

I hope you have found this review helpful, I definitely recommend the Maniser sisters palette its a must have for any fan of theirs and if you haven’t tried The Balm you should check them out…

I hope you all have a great New Year!
