My Take on- The BALM – Bahama Mama Bronzer:  Bahama Mama Bronzer is a grey toned neutral matte bronzing powder which is actually a contouring product. It is neither yellow nor too grey, doesn’t look muddy or orangey. The neutral undertone suits all skin colour. As per the brand –TheBalm, their products got lovely, attractive and sassy packaging 😉 I love the brand; just like their sexy packaging their products are also high in quality.

I brought this product on my friends cum sister’s recommendation and I am glad I have this wonderful stuff in my life. It is one of that perfect shade that is perfect for contouring purpose; however, it is also a multi-tasker. The BALM – Bahama Mama Bronzer can also be use as an eye shadow i.e. transition shade, blending out smoky eyes etc.


Texture and Pigmentation: The BALM – Bahama Mama Bronzer is silky and smooth is texture, feels almost creamy when touch. The formula is lightweight, silky and blends easily with less work. The excellent blendability gives easy application. Bahama Mama Bronzer is said to be matte but up-close it has subtle sheen to it which is noticeable only once applied that gives an amazing healthy glow to the skin. Pigmentation is lovely, the product has medium to buildable pigmentation that provides control upon application.




The BALM – Bahama Mama Bronzer last for 8-9 hours before fading, it is also fragrance free. Besides, The name “Bahama” reminds me of holidays in Bahamas 😀
