Cindy-Lou Manizer – Review and swatches

Described as a soft peachy- pink highlighter. I’d describe it’s as a soft peachy colour with a rose gold sheen. Its very similar in terms of formula to its sister product Mary- Lou Manizer. It’s silky and soft to the touch, almost like butter rather than a powder.

The Balm Say:
An all-in-one essential, this smart shadow, beautiful blush and subtle highlighter is tucked inside a go-anywhere compact. The light-reflecting peachy pink hue adds a splash of color to your cheeks and a hint of shimmer to your lids, while illuminating your finest features.


Like Mary – Lou it is quite expensive at £16.00 yet a little really does go along way. So this will last a really long time. Its also extremely buildable so can be used to create a variety of looks. I personally use it most as a highlight its peachy shade creates a light pretty colour to my cheekbones as well as a subtle shimmer.
One of my favourite things about Cindy -Lou is it durablity once applied it will last and last on your skin with the same vibrancy as when applied, till you remove your makeup at night, which I’m sure you will agree really is amazing.
I think it will be flattering to most skin types although the peachy hue might not show up to well on darker skin yet it will still leave a natural glow to the skin. On fairer skin types it may look slightly too dark in the pan but with a light hand. you can definitely make this shade work for you as its so blendable.

The only issue I have is that because the powder is so soft and buttery it smashes in the pan with the slightest knock so not one for taking on your travels. However overall this really is a beautiful product and I love this. You really need to play around with it to make it work for you. Its stunning and I would without doubt recommend this to any one who wants to add a bit of radiance to their complexion.
