theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer

There's a new bronzer in my life and I'm in love.

I've talked about a few things from this brand lately and I am yet to find a product from them that I am disappointed with.

theBalm has indeed lived up to it's incredible reputation for me and their products really are as good in quality as they are in their packaging and names.
Today I am talking about Bahama Mama - a gorgeous bronzer fantastic for contouring and giving your skin a healthy glow!
After using my Sleek contour palette day in-day out for over a year and being totally in love with it, trying something new wasn't really on my to-do list!
So when the lovely people at theBalm sent me over this I wasn't sure whether it would live up to my high expectations of that drugstore bargain!

But after trying it out alongside the Mary Lou Manizer (review and photos here) as a contour and highlight, my sleek kit was quickly chucked to the back of my make-up bag and happily replaced by this duo from thebalm.
I sweep this in the number 3 shape from my chin up towards my forehead and after highlighting blend together with a large powder brush.
I love the subtle contour it gives and the fact it is a matte finish is even better, it seems like more and more matte bronzers are becoming available thank goodness.

The bronzer comes in a gorgeous little compact, complete with mirror - which is very handy if you're on the go!

Bahama Mama is £13.50 and is available at ASOS and Superdrug. 
BIG, big love for this bronzer - it has made it's way into my everyday make-up routine and I can't see it leaving anytime soon!

  1. I'm still to try any of theBalm products, but I am desperate to try some! I love the packaging, it's so cute and the little plays on words they have for their product names, they seem like such a fun brand!
    This looks great, I'm still stuck to my sleek contour kit and would be very interested to try this!

  2. Looks gorgeous! I keep seeing theBalm everywhere yet I haven't tried anything. The packaging reminds me a bit of Benefit box packaging, but I mean that in the best possible way! :) x

  6. I love theBalm packaging! It all looks so funky. This bronzer is actually a really nice shade. I can see why it would be good for contouring! x

  7. Somehow I totally missed the memo on this being matte (I guess I'm a bad description reader) ...I must go get it!! I've always thought it was really pretty!


  8. Dear Kirstie,

    Could you please tell me if your Bahama Mama bronzer has the QR code on the back and the expiration date? I have ordered mine from Asos and it does not have the code or the date. I am wondering if maybe what I have is a fake Bahama Mama bronzer.

    Appreciate the help.

    Best regards,
