theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer

I recently managed to get my hands on the Betty-Lou Manizer bronzer by theBalm from a local 'shop and swap' group on Facebook! I called it immediately! It had only ever been swatched and I got it for $15 instead of the regular $24 it retails for - I'm a happy camper! This is my first product by theBalm and I'm very excited to try it out! I've been intrigued by their products for quite a while, now!

My camera kept capturing a glare.. so this is the only clear shot where you can see 'Betty-Lou'!

Here you can see a bit more clearly!

So here is what theBalm website says about this product..

"Fake it, don't bake it! Before you head out to relish some well deserved fun, score a faux, sun-kissed glow with theBalm's Betty-Lou Manizer, a silky smooth, all-in-one bronzing highlighter, shimmer, and shadow. Layer this soft, paraben - and talc- free formula on your lids for a luxe look, or sweep on your cheeks, forehead, and chin for an instant, goddess glow."

Their packaging is very cute! I think Wanted poster packaging is clever and witty! And, of course cute!

So the product is packaged in your standard compact. It comes with a nice little mirror, as well. It closes very securely.. It's a little tricky for me to try and open! I don't have to worry about it opening accidentally inside my bag, though!

Here's a small swatch so you can have an idea of how it looks! Once again, I apologize for the photo! Swatch photos are still being very tricky for me!

Anyway, I can't wait to play around with this! It's very soft and nicely pigmented! I put a little on just to test it out and I was very happy with the glow that it gave me - very nice! I think I'm really going to like this product!


  1. I have this bronzer too and I love it! I got mine in a set for $9, the set came with this Mary Lou Manizer, a blush called Frat boy and Stainiac. What a deal! There was also a set i snagged for $9, it came with the Bahama Mama bronzer and 2 blushes, i am happy with these products and love theBalm!!!

    1. Oh, that must have been the sets from Marshall's I've heard so much about! I wish we had one here, those are amazing deals!

  2. Hi Jade,

    Yes, I bought them from Marshalls. TJ Maxx and Ross also carries these sets :-) Amazing!
