The Balm - Mary-Lou Manizer & Bahama Mama Bronzer

Hey Lovelies! Today I am going to be reviewing the Mary-Lou Manizer and the Bahama Mama bronzer from The Balm. These two products have been on my wish list for a while, I have heard lots of good things about them on the bloggesphere so i couldn't wait to get my hands on them!

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Bahama Mama Bronzer Review

First up the Mary-Lou Manizer, now I love highlighters and this one is a beauty! It's a champagne/golden shade with fine shimmer and a gorgeous sheen. You only need to dab the brush into the product as it is super pigmented! Out of all of the highlighters I own this is the most intense so its perfect if your looking for a really glowy look! It also looks gorgeous as an eyeshadow, or on the inner corner to highlight. 

Next up is the Bahama Mama Bronzer, as you can see it is quite a dark bronzer, it is neutral toned brown shade so not overly orange or cool-toned, but somewhere in the middle. It is supposed to be matte but I can see very slight shimmer when I look at in the light but on the skin this doesn't translate so it works great for contouring. It isn't crazy pigmented, it can be applied quites sheer or built up and it's  finely milled so blends in beautifully. 

Overall I'm really impressed with both of these products and would really recommend them, I purchased mine from Feelunique, (type summerstyle at checkout to receive 10% when buying two or more products - valid 31st July)

  9. Oooooh I wish I'd gotten the bronzer when I got the highlighter, it looks good. I love love LOVE the highlighter - I think it's probably my all-time favourite. I like my highlighters to be really pigmented because I don't go for a subtle highlight :) I think it's the perfect shade too.
