TheBalm - Bahama Mama Bronzer!!!!

Have you ever tried any products by TheBalm brand? Oh my, everything I ever try from this brand I end up absolutely loving. What does this mean?
I just bought Bahama Mama Bronzer by TheBalm this weekend at Sephora, and I must say - this is very thumbs up! This bronzer truly gives you a healthy, tan, not overly made up look.

Bahama Mama Bronzer is somewhat similar to Benefit's Hoola, but better!! First let me talk about Hoola. I love the color, I love the fact that it is matte, because lets face it, its not every day that we want a sparkly face. Sometimes, but not always. Despite all its positive qualities, I found a big issue with Hoola. Although its color is a beautiful brown, this bronzer left me looking "muddy". No matter what brush I used, no matter how light of a hand I tried using, I could not get that one to work with me. Some of you pull it off very well, but I never had the same luck.

So many many great bronzers later (I'll post more information about those), I discovered Bahama Mama Bronzer, and I am in LOVE! I use MAC's 136 brush with the bronzer to give me a contoured look. This bronzer is gorgeous brown tan color, super smooth, silky, and perfect. Its very rare to hear me speak this highly of a bronzer, just because I am extremely picky. This one is a must try though! It is $18, which is not a bad price in comparison to many other bronzers. See the link below:

I'll have to check this out! I use NARS in 'laguna' and it's amazing...BUT it's $30 and even though it looks big it really isn't! p.s. I love your posts, keep up the good work! =)

Thanks Aleksis! I really enjoy your posts too!

I also like Laguna. Actually, now that I think about it, the colors are similar. You get a little more sheen with Laguna, whereas Bahama Mama is transluscent, therefore matte. Really matches the texture of your own skin, which is what I am all about (sometimes) :-).

Simply amazing! So, I want to encourage you to continue reading hear blogs because this girls knows what she's talking about!!
