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).

Cold Day

6 Dec

Very vold day today as I spent most of the time outside waiting for the bus to come so that I could go for the study session at the U today. I was tempted to go and get a hot chocolate but held off. I wore those tight-fitting boots again so it was pretty painful. Spent most of the day studying and travelling as well. Heh, I should say half of my day was spent travelling. Very tired today but I’m about the half-way point through the chemistry textbook. Tomorrow I will attempt to finish it off and if I can’t then I’ll prep for EASIA and run through the notes posted online and try to work through the problem sets. Studying…

Well, time to go to sleep now. Lucky I don’t have to go to the U tomorrow. TY!

Still snowing…

5 Dec

Still snowing… sometimes I curse Alberta weather. This is just way too much snow at once. But I saw interesting things like my neighbor who can’t get out because his front porch is filled with snow. By the time I got home there was like a little hole so that he could get out. I should have taken a picture of it but I forgot to.
Not much today other than the kid’s belt grading, no Viet class, lots of travelling around, and watching the Letter from Iwo Jima. Which was an awesome movie by the way. So I am back to studying….

Darn it all…
