My Two Favorite Ladies: The Balm's Betty-Lou and Mary-Lou (Manizer)

Many know about these beloved highlighter/shimmer/eye shadow powders from The Balm. These two have quickly become two of my favorite pieces in my makeup collection. As of lately, Betty has been making more of an appearance on my face because of the darker shade of my skin these summer months. The quality of these powders is awesome with both being buttery smooth and very pigmented. They have multiple purposes such as a highlighter, bronzer, and even an eyeshadow. My favorite way to use them is to give my cheeks a healthy glow. These powders retail for $24 on the Balm's website, however, they often are featured on the discount website Hautelook where I think I paid $12 each for them.
