I’m back with another review on a bronzer called Bahama Mama by the Balm. My favorite bronzer, NARS Laguna broke when I dropped it during one of my makeup gig. <////3 So I brought out a new bronzer from my stash of unused makeup! It was a gift from my uncle and his wife on my 18th birthday (thanks auntie Javi and uncle sean! :) ).
The product is a magnetic compact made out of cardboard and is encased in another cardboard with the same print and design of the actual product. You simply slide out the compact out of the thin cardboard case. The design is so lovely! The Balm always comes out with products with the prettiest designs! :)
What I Love
The bronzer is matte bronzer which I LOOOVE. It has an ever so subtle sheen to it but has no chunky shimmer whatsoever which is something I look for in my bronzers. Shimmery bronzers tend to not be able to do the job of contouring. This is because the shimmer further enhances the part that you want to hide via contouring. It doesn’t look orangey when applied as well. It suits my skin tone nicely. :) The product is very finely milled and you can see that it really has excellent quality and is really easy to blend. I was very loyal to my Nars Laguna bronzer but this Bahama Mama bronzer by The Balm is soo good that I don’t feel so bad about losing my Laguna bronzer. It’s everything I want in a bronzer. <3
I have no complaints about this bronzer! :)
the bronzer did not show up so much in the camaera but it really looks nice in person! <3
Final Tips and Recommendations
I likes using this with my flat top brush from Sonia Kashuk. I use the side to draw a line on my cheekbone then i use the flat top side of the brush to blend everything out.
I really love this bronzer and I can totally see it becoming a regular product in my makeup kit. I highly recommend this to those who like using matte bronzers. For those who don’t, this is definitely worth a try!! :)
whats’s your favorite bronzer? :)
