The Manizer Sisters joins forces and make an appearance as a trio in the new the Balm The Manizer Sisters Luminizer Collection Palette! The new the Balm The Manizer Sisters Luminizer Collection Palette brings together the outrageous Mary-Lou Manizer guilty of creating an innocent honey hued highlight on cheeks and face for a more youthful look, the notorious Betty-Lou Manizer wanted for faking the bake by giving your cheeks and face a golden bronze faux sun kissed finish, and Cindy-Lou Manizer on the loose for giving cheeks and face a light-reflecting peachy pink splash of color.

I actually have all these femme fatales in my collection already but having them all in one easy travel friendly palette is fabulous!

I can’t believe it’s been nearly seven year’s since the Balm Mary-Lou Manizer released. How crazy is that? Now these notorious sisters all come together in one cute palette!

the Balm The Manizer Sisters Luminizer Collection Palette is a $28 (0.04 oz total size) palette and is available exclusively at Kohl’s and kohls.com. The palette is a slim line rectangular magnetic closure palette with a generously sized mirror and the powders inside.

These powders all are tripled mill which gives them a very soft, velvety consistency. I’ve always compared them to the texture of Stila Kitten as they are thick and almost creamy-like in consistency! The powders act as a highlighter, eyeshadow, and even a blush in some cases! All three are easy to over do so use a lighter hand during application to avoid a disco ball finish. I wouldn’t say there’s pure shimmer or glitter here but things get frosty with heavier application so remember to go lightly!

Mary-Lou Manizer is the true highlighter in the group with a soft golden beige champagne. Lots of people have compared this to Too Faced Absolutely Invisible Candlelight in the past but I think Mary-Lou is way more of a golden sheen versus the subtly white gold of Too Faced’s finish. Mary-Lou’s a fav of mine on my lids but it can be really frosty and glittery on my face as I tend to have a heavier hand but if I’m very careful I can get a nice golden glow on my complexion so remember use a little TLC during application.

Betty Lou Manizer Bronzer was released in 2012 and she’s also great for use as not only a bronzer but also as a shadow. This is a rich chocolate-y bronze shade and I’m always a little scared of shades like this as they tend to apply muddy but on my eyes it looks pretty darn nice and smokes out to give eyes a nice hint of bronze-y brown. On cheeks it gives a very brown bronze finish with a nice sheen.

Cindy Lou Manizer is the newest powder in this trio and she acts as a highlighter, a blush for fairer skin, and an eyeshadow. Cindy Lou is a very pretty golden rose powder with a peachy bronze effect that gives a subtle peachy glow on cheeks!

If you have none of these shades now is a good a time as any to get all three in this fabulous little palette! And if you already do? This is a nice travel friendly way to take all the girls with you when you’re out and about.

the Balm The Manizer Sisters Luminizer Collection Palette is a great pick up if you’re a contour and highlighter kind of girl or guy. These shades are nice essential colors for bringing light and depth to your face.

You can grab the palette now at Kohl’s or kohls.com.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I think is a great set for people to try out the sisters. I agree, it would be great for travel, too.

    • Isabella Muse

      Agreed! Or if you use them often enough it’s nice to have them in one spot for travel!

  • Coffee

    I have to get this! Great especially on the go. Thanks for the thorough information about it!

  • Nataile Brown

    This is a great price for all three of these. I have Cindy and Mary and love them. Although, Betty is a bit too dark for me. Just FYI: I apply both with the elf stippling brush so it doesn’t go on too heavily. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nooo, they’re *exclusive* to kohl’s?? I’m not from the U.S. and the website isn’t working for me. And this would be so perfect, because I want to try them all, but I would never use a whole pan of Mary or Cindy or whatever. Boooo! :(:(:(

    • Emilie

      I don’t think they’re exclusive to Kohls, you can buy them on theBalm’s website!

  • genevieve

    A very useful kit for those whose complexions suit these colours. Great size too.
