theBalm® cosmetics Balm Desert® Bronzer/Blush

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.

Nice tone

I love the color of this bronzer/blush. It works really well on my pale (pasty) skin. I have warm undertones and this complements them nicely. I do wish these bronzer samples were a bit bigger tho. I find it hard to use a bronzer brush when the sample is a 1/2 diameter circle... :-/

Too dark for me

I was so hopeful that this bronzer would work for me. It's too dark for my light skin. However this works as a great eyeshadow.

Because the sample packaging was so small I had a bit of a hard time getting an even application. Thought the color was nice for summer.

Makes a GREAT eyeshadow!
Sampled

The sample is pretty dang small, so I was not able to use this product in it's intended fashion as a bronzer and/or blush. However, I have no complaints because it's a fantastic eyeshadow! It stays put and is a great everyday eyeshadow to give my eyes a little more dimension.

I opened this package and saw the color of this bronzer, and immediately assumed it would be much too dark for me to use. I was so surprised! It really does exactly what it claims, giving a subtle warm glow. I love it!

Love all TheBalms bronzers, blushes, and highlighters. The sample size is small af but I don't care. I use it all the time with my large powder brush. You just have to swirl the brush over it for a while

Okay bronzer
SampledPurchased

I bought this bronzer as I thought the sample was pretty good however it's too glittery and it clogs your pores.
