theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer – Review and Swatch

IMG_3205

I think the name of this product is deceiving in the sense that I don’t believe this is a bronzer, but actually a sculpting or contour powder. I bought this from Feel Unique for a sale price of £13.50 which I think is really well priced considering I was going to buy the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder for £35.

Bahama Mama comes in really pretty packaging, it has an outer cardboard sleeve and I love the funky artwork. The bronzer itself has a mirror in the top and a magnet to close.

The colouring of this bronzer is the best part. It is a very cool toned brown which means when you apply it to contour your face it actually mimics a real shadow. This looks far more natural than a warm (orange) tone bronzer. I was hesitant to buy this product in the first place as I wasn’t sure if it would show up on my skin. It is not massively pigmented on me and I have to apply a few layers for the colour to show through, however on lighter skin tones (may be too dark for pale/very fair skin) this will be perfect. The texture is 100% matte and doesn’t contain any shimmer.

This is actually the perfect product for someone who is new to contouring (like me), it’s pretty much fool proof as it blends really easily and it’s too harsh in terms of colouring.

Ooh look at those cheekbones!

This bronzer is a winner for sure, I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a fuss free sculpting powder.
