The nearly-always-sold-out cult highlighter that's currently 40 per cent off.

There are some makeup products that instantly reach cult status.

YouTubers rave about them. They’re plastered all over your Instagram feed. And you can never bloody get your hands on it because, due to the above, they are always sold out.

the Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer is one such beauty product.

Some have even described it as the highlighter that all others get compared to.

Thanks to its honey-hued shimmer, the luminizer (or highlighter) is beloved by almost everybody, with hundreds of five star reviews online.

It can be applied delicately for a subtle look or packed on for a glow that can probably be seen from outer space.

It’s just a highlighter though – it can also be used as an eyeshadow or all-over general shimmer-adder to make skin look smooth and younger-looking.


As well as fab (and punny!) packaging, the compact also comes with a mirror which is always handy.

But this isn’t me rubbing your nose in by recommending a product that will inevitably be sold out by the time you go to buy.


The coveted highlighter is currently more than 40 per cent off. Instead of setting you back $35, you can get it for $19.99, a saving of $15. What can you do with that? Buy another one for a friend, or you know, for yourself to stock up.

I know I’ll be buying at least three.

While at first glance it looks mainly suitable for pale skin tones, those with darker skin tones have also raved about the highlighter.

Run, don’t walk. We warned you.

Women are being shamed for looking ‘glam’ and we need to talk about it.
