I love theBalm. Mary Lou-Manizer is one of my favourite highlighters and I love the Nude Tude palette. I am on a bit of a journey of discovery with the brand as the whole in fact, but one of the newest additions is this gorgeous bronzer. Here’s a look at the new theBalm Balm Desert Bronzer. Get ready to love it!

So this is actually a product that sits very nicely between a bronzer and a blush and you could easily use it for either, or both. Which makes it absolutely lovely!

Now anyone with big pores might worry about the sheeny quality in this bronzer but I can assure you, this actually sits very nicely on the skin. It has what I would call a radiant matte finish and it is actually very flattering. It imparts the skin with a very natural looking luminosity. I love it.

The texture is great. It picks up easily on a fluffy brush, I just tap off the excess and it blends effortlessly into the skin. You can have a sheer soft glow, or build up to a more intense finish, depending on what kind look you are going for. It is also absolutely gorgeous on the eyelids.

It is long lasting, as promised, and will be a perfect addition to your summer complexion wardrobe. theBalm Balm Desert Bronzer is already available in the US and will be launching in June 2015 in the UK. You can find theBalm at Feel UniqueSuperdrug and ASOS.

If you haven’t tried anything from the brand yet, I totally recommend that you do!
