It's Looking Promising: Bahama Mama by theBalm

I'm starting to appreciate bronzers more and I think I have found one that looks pretty darn good. This is a kind of 'first impressions' post rather than a full review about theBalm's Bahama Mama.

I'm a big fat fan of theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer and so I've wanted to pick up some of their other products but because I'm trying to cut back and simplify my existence a little bit, I've only gone for this bronzer recently. I was recently really disappointed by a bronzer I got from KIKO (the Loud Night Bronzer) and I wanted a new, dark, matte bronzer. This looks nice because it doesn't look muddy or too warm so I feel like the colour is going to be a hit. The texture feels nice, it's paraben free - I don't know, I just think I'm going to love it but of course I will report back if it's the worst!

It comes in a little dinky package but you get 7.08g which isn't bad and it also comes with a mirror which is pretty handy. I tend to prefer more simple looking packaging but I actually think theBalm's packaging is kind of cute and almost a bit sarcastic?

Let me know if you have tried this! You can pick this up from Feel Unique for £12.50.

  1. This is my favorite bronzer. It's just so perfect for my skin tone. I got it in a set with the Hot Momma blush (which I'm equally obsessed with). Love it!

  2. I love The Balm products. Looks super pretty :)

    1. Me too, apart from their skincare which all smells really bad...

  3. It's my go to bronzer as I am NC42, I have to go a little heavy with the colour but its lovely and matte and I adore it :)


  4. I'm interested in what you think once you give it a try! Believe it or not, my first high-end makeup ever was by theBalm and I absolutely loved it! I'll have to try some more products from them soon :)

    1. Oh really! I always think of it as being fairly new but maybe not :)

  5. I just love this bronzer. It's absolutely amazing! I bought it after I saw Camila Coelho using it once ( have you heard of her? beauty blogger too. Like her tutorials), and bought it to test. Just couldn't leave it.
    Have a nice week. :D


  6. I've had this on my wishlist for quite a while now. Am determined to get it soon! Looking forward to reading your review!
