Let me first begin with how much I LOVE the packaging of The Balm products!!
Kinda retro, with a classy and quirky/playful feel - just makes things seem a little more special, haha!
Anyway, I gotta say that I am impressed with this bronzer for many reasons...
The colour is a nice light brown that blends really well with my foundation.
And it also, acts as a highlight too! Although it is first and foremost labelled as a bronzer, this baby really illuminates your face!
I like that the brown is not too overpowering like some other products I've used.
Since I have a relatively pale complexion with sensitive skin, I don't like my bronzer to look unnatural or too bold. I'll use darker ones when I have a tan because they can compliment rather than overshadow, but on an everyday basis, I find the "Betty-Lou Manizer" (love the word play, haha) to be an appropriate shade for regular wear.
Although this swatch looks shocking at first, this product does blend out nicely to give that glowing effect!
I have really been enjoying the few The Balm products that I've gotten lately, and will continue to review some more!
Thanks for hanging out!
