The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer

Hey loves!

You might have noticed that I've been blogging a lot about highlighters lately. I might be doing a lot of "strobing" but I still do my contour. I have a big face that needs a little help slimming down. Haha! The one I'm using lately is...

The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer
This is actually my sister's, but she gave it to me. I use contouring and bronzing more than she does. 

It's PhP 925.00 at Beauty Bar.

So let's get to know the product first.
Below is the back of the product. You can see the ingredients list and the manufacturing details.

Here's the product description from the website:

Finally, a Caribbean getaway in a compact! This matte bronzer creates the look of beautifully tanned skin without any orange undertones for a fresh-off-the-beach glow. Bahama Mama also doubles as the perfect contour powder, neutral brow-filler and matte brown eyeshadow. Yes, this tropical beauty keeps busy!

I love the package design. It's like an illustration from the early 1900s! It's fun and sexy at the same time. I like how slim it is and that it has a mirror too. What I do not like is how easy it is to look dirty. It can easily be cleaned with cotton and makeup remover.

Just as the description stated, it doesn't have that orange or brick red undertone and it has a matte finish, which makes it a great contour powder. Yeah it says it's for bronzing but I don't like to go all bronzed with my makeup usually. 

See that swatch? It's flat matte. And it's not powdery! 

Check out how it works on my face:

My face looked like there's added depth and it slimmed down a bit. It works pretty well with my color too. It's better as contour with this shade because I find the brown too grayish brown for my color. 

Lasting power is pretty decent. It can fade after 4 to 5 hours depending on how oily my skin gets. 

So what do you think of The Balm's Bahama Mama Bronzer?
