Ever since Ms Kim Kardashian posted her heavily contoured face, I see that contouring has became so popular and I gotta agree that it is important (even much more important than eye liner, in my case). Fine, you got your bronzer to create hollows under your cheekbones, your temples, the sides of your nose, but contouring is beyond a good matte bronzer.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Miss Mary-Lou Manizer and her sister, Cindy-Lou.
Describe them in one word? GORGEOUS! I mean just look at those radiant shimmer!
Meet Mary-Lou Manizer, a seemingly innocent honey-hued luminizer that catches everybody’s eye. This highlighter, shadow and shimmer diffuses light so your skin looks softer and younger while adding a subtle glow.
As for the little sister, Cindy-Lou Manizer
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.
They actually have another sister called Betty-Lou, a sexy shimmery bronzer that came out on the same batch as Mary-Lou (in fact, they often retailed in one package). I've never try her in my life, not because I dislike it, but I already have too many shimmery bronzer. So sorry, Betty-Lou, maybe next time ;D
So let's start with the older gal.
Mary-Lou is not that type of healthy-skin highlighter, she's more into adding final touch to your look, lock your makeup together. However, you can wear a little or a ton, have it your way. Personally, I like to dab a little on daily basis and go a bit cray for special events (but not too much, please, overuse of highlighter can give oily look to your face).
Best spots for Mary-Lou: cheekbones, nose bridge, inner tear duct and center of eyelids, cupid's bow, and brow bone.
By the way, these beauties are sooo fragile. I did drop Mary-Lou and she literally shattered into pieces, it broke my heart... No worries, I FIXED HER and she's now good as new. I'll share the magic trick with you, I promise.
At first, I thought I won't need her because I love Mary-Lou too much. Too bad, I failed once again 'cause she's actually as pretty as her sister! I was in the midst of collecting blush at that moment and this even though she claimed to be the "Con-tour Artist", I like to use her more as blush on.
Again, still obsessed with rose gold, she's actually has generous amount of fine golden shimmer blended in that coral compact. In fact, Cindy-Lou looks somewhat different from the disc when you swatch her. Apart from coral, I can always see that awesome golden shine and even soft lilac whenever the light hits me.
Best spots for Cindy-Lou: apples of the cheeks and eyelids as in to be used as eye shadow.
Now enough with the gorgeous color pay-off, let's talk about formulation. Honestly... I think it's the formulation that makes me falling head over heels with these sister. It's stunning. They are literally powder with cream finish. They doesn't look patchy nor cakey, they lasts for the whole day, they does make your skin look smoother and nothing appear sexier than a nice glow/ wet look on top of your makeup.
Seriously, never discontinue, I'll buy them for the rest of my life. They worth the hype!
PS: hope you like my better lighting ;P
