It’s theBalm…

DUDE! That is so balm…

Get it? theBalm…?


LOL! Sorry. I never get tired of doing that. 🙂

What can I say? I love ’90s slang.


I also love highlighters, like this new one here, Cindy-Lou Manizer ($24), a beautiful opalescent peachy pink with a soft sheen finish.

You can wear it as a highlighter with your favorite corals, peaches or warmish pink blushes, or use it as an eyeshadow.

Today I wore it on the tops of my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose. I like that it’s shiny, but not so shiny that my skin looks oily when I wear it.

Gonna try it in my inner corners next.

It’s available online now and coming this spring at theBalm counters.

    That is gorgeous!! I regret to say that I have not tried any products from theBalm yet, but I’ve really only heard good things!

  4. Sylirael says:

    I think this would be a bit too colourful for me as a highlighter – I’m so pale I might have to use it as a blush!

    I own the Mary-Lou Manizer right now and love it, though now I’m wondering if this would look better on my skin tone. (olive-toned, NC25 – though leans more neutral) Any thoughts? Since I lean neutral I’m really terrible at determining what would look good on my skin haha.

  9. Allison says:

    Betty Lou and Mary Lou have been my good friends for quite a while! Good, much loved friends! Glad to see another “Lou” in the circle.

    Beautiful hi lighter love the peachy glow and the ear cuff is stunning to 🙂

  12. Alison M says:

    I adore theBalm. Betty and Mary are regulars in my rotation so naturally they’ve invited Cindy to party. Such a perfect glow without glitter from the others so I’m sure Cindy will be just as lovely.

    This may seem silly, but does anyone know(or could help) me find the box to put a coupon code on the balm website? I’m ready to checkout and I have a 10% off code, but I see no box to input it…. Thanks!

  19. Kim says:

    Do you think it’s enough to make the Grinch’s heart grow three times? Get it? Cindy-Lou? Like Cindy Lou Who? 🙂 It’s seriously quite pretty, though.

    I’m not a huge Balm fan but love the kitschy name and the wear on this! Do you think skin tones lighter would still be ok with it?
