Review: theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer

8 Mar

Hello everyone! I have picked up this bronzer lately and since I’m not really a bronzer person I mainly use this as a contour or sometimes a blush.

Review: I’m not a cheek product type of girl and probably won’t get into it any time soon but I got this as a gift with purchase. This is actually a really nice natural looking bronzer and it gives a nice sun-kissed look to my skin. The color is matte, no shimmer and isn’t orange like some other bronzers on the market. It is very pigmented, smooth powder with a soft brown undertone and is also great for contouring (especially in the winter months where I’m paler than my usual skintone) but put on too much it can look a little muddy on the skin. Packaging is flimsy cardboard and it makes it easy to dirty the packaging with the bronzer and it isn’t travel friendly I feel as if the powder will break if I take it travelling.  

Cost: $26CDN @ Rexall pharmacies or $19USD

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those looking for a natural looking bronzer but this will not work for those with darker skin tones (might not show up).

Hello everyone! As you’ve noticed I haven’t been posting much lately and that’s because my computer has been shipped to be fixed. And it is going to take 2 weeks for it to comeback so all I can do is  currently beauty reviews… so sad… but I’ll leave you with a photo of something fun.

Review: Nivea Lipbalms

1 Mar

Hello everyone! This is a compilation review as I have more than one type of lipbalm from Nivea so they are all put in one.

Review: Since there are more than one lipbalm I will break the reviews up into their respective type I have also placed them in an order that goes from really like to dislike.

Hydro Care (blue) – overall a really great lip balm has a vanilla sort of scent that isn’t too overpowering and goes on the lips very smoothly.

Milk & Honey (light yellow) – I use this as a night time lip treatment as it has a heavier feel than most lip balms. Goes on with shine and can sometimes be a little tacky on the lips. Scent-wise it smells much more wax honey than a nice blend of honey and milk.

Strawberry Tinted (red) – This is a tinted lip balm and works very well the color is a very bright color (great for spring/summer looks). I found this not to be moisterizing enough and there are glitters in the lip balms so it does not slide on as smoothly compared to Hydro Care (blue). The tint can last all day as it can also work as a lipstain.

Sunscreen (bright yellow) – I really disliked this lip balm it literally felt like solid sunscreen for the lips. It was not moisterizing at all and it turned my lips whiter which should not happen (imagine putting on white lipstick). Tacky and hard to put on.

Price: Ranges from $1.50-3.00 CDN from various drugstores

Would I recommend these products? I would recommend the top three (hydro care, milk & honey, strawberry tint) but the only one that I will be repurchasing will be the Hydro care as it works very well for a great price. I would not recommend the sunscreen one as mentioned above it was not a lipbalm but solid sunscreen for the lips.
