If you haven't heard of theBalm, you're seriously missing out. This brand is a best-kept-secret (and not sold in beauty stores).
Color: This is a matte bronzer that doesn't make you look orange or fake. The rich, bronzy color is very, very pigmented so you only need a little bit to get a natural-looking glow.
Application: We have mixed feelings about theBalm's choice of packaging, mostly because it comes in a thin, flimsy box. Despite our feelings about the durability of the box, the pan is larger than most making it easy to apply with just about any brush. The mirror and magnetic closing are also features we sort of love.
Price: We're not complaining about the $20 price, especially since bronzers are typically more expensive. And, don't be fooled about the small packaging. Reviewers claim they've used it daily for a year and haven't hit the bottom. Now, that's impressive.
Keep in mind theBalm isn't sold in beauty stores, so you're better off ordering directly from Amazon.
