Beauty: The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer

Oh, the wait is finally over. I've been lemming to try a matte bronzer for a long time now, until I have this upcoming makeup gig and I think a matte bronzer for contouring is what's been missing on my makeup essentials. So, I visit the beauty bar store and finally got my hands on this affordable yet superb product. I researched on the internet which among the matte bronzer performs well but at the same time will not make me broke and this one is a sure good find!

The Balm's packaging is super cute, a cardboard with that cute picture of a girl. It is sturdy and very appropriate for that kinda travel makeup necessities. I tried the Smashbox Bronzer which is Kim K's favorite however, for my Asian skin, that really don't do much contour on my skintone since it is light. So The Balm Bahama Mama is the best choice for me!

This is darker compared to Hoola Bronzer by Benefit and Smashbox Bronzer so if you plan to dust it over your NC30 skin, it will look muddy or super tan. Better way is to first pat off the excess bronzer on your brush and dust it all over the face for tan look. For contouring, this is for me very promising! You simply need an angled blush brush, and dust it to just underneath the apple of your cheeks. Don't forget to swirl the color on your cheeks to erase the hard edges and to let it just combine with blush.

My Verdict:

This is a winner! The pigmentation is superb, a little goes a long, long way. The longevity of the product once applied on your face is impressive. The product content I think will last me a long time since you don't need a lot of it for contouring. and the price, affordable. So this is actually a good beauty find! I can use this for bronzed look or for my makeup gigs especially for those with darker skin tones to create that sun kissed look.

Where to buy??
If you are in Manila, you can buy this at your nearest Beauty Bar. Mine I bought in Beauty Bar Glorietta for Php 775. I think for those who wants to contour their face in such a way that they want to make their face look thinner, well, a matte bronzer is what you need! Though I've been lemming to try the Nars Laguna Bronzer but for me it is pricey so this Bahama Mama Bronzer can be of a great substitute.

 Till our next makeup session!
