Birchbox Breakdown

Lounging poolside in Palm Springs with the cast of Mad Men may be a fantasy, but we can still snag some of that warm desert glow with this silky shimmer powder from theBalm® cosmetics. The fade-resistant formula works as a blush and bronzer in one to give skin that fresh, sun-kissed look - even when our late-night antics leave us feeling otherwise.

Not enough product for price
Purchased

A lovely product to use, the colour seems longwearing, even if it looks too dark on first application, it blends well. A negative is the amount of product - under 2 inches diameter - and for the relatively high price I expected to receive a sizeable palette - Not this!

Pale, I'm so very pale. Which you know as its in my bio. So why send me this? Haven't even tried it as I use highlighting liquid so it's been binned!

Really good bronzer for my really fair skin.

I was a bit worried about this bronzer on my fair skin, but it looks darker than it is and it works a treat. I really love it.

This works as a flattering eye colour for me, a very handy colour to give me a little colour all over

Great Product
Sampled

The Balm cosmetics can be hit or miss however this bronzer is definitely a hit! It's not too dark and can be easily built up on the skin. I have fair skin and it didn't look fake or clumpy on the skin. It's also great for facial contouring with the right brush. Perfect for summer glow.
