Is it a blush? Is it a bronzer? This product by The Balm promises to be both. Depending on your complexion this can also work as both. On my fair skin, this is more of a bronzer than anything else, which is why this review will be focusing on using this product as such. So here we go: say hello to The Balm Balm Desert.
The Balm Balm Desert Bronzer/ Blush
Summer is the time to slap on loads of bronzer. Especially for pale gals like me, bronzer is a life saver, to create the illusion of a tan without a lot of pain and effort. One of my favorite bronzers for the summer time is the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer in the shade Sweet Tea. This is a bronzer I don’t hear many people raving about and that is why in today’s review, I will be doing just that.

One of my favorite cheek products for the summer time is the I Heart Makeup Love Hot Summer bronzer. I am usually not a fan of glowy blush or bronzer, but for the summer time I like making an exception. Since I tend to wear less makeup as it is warmer, I like going for products that can do three things in one go: add warmth, add color and lastly to add a healthy glow. The minute I spotted his product on Instagram I knew it would tick off all those boxes for me. Here’s why I love it so much.

One of my all time favorite bronzers at the drugstore? Soap & Glory Solar Powder. Up to this point I had never gotten round to reviewing it, but after putting it in my shop my stash, I knew it was time. I already loved it during spring last year and also this year I find myself reaching for it again. Why do I love this bronzer so much?

It’s still cold outside, but we have been having some sunfilled days and that means that spring is also in the air. Personally I cannot wait for the nicer weather to come round. Nice weather means better temperatures, vacation and lots of time for exploring the city. You know what it also means? Being able to wear this bronzer by Urban Decay.

In terms of bronzers, I struggled finding good ones for years. With my pale skin, finding a bronzer that didn’t turn me into an Oompa Loompa was a bit of a challenge. I have found a few that I like on both the affordable and high end side since then. I had heard great things about the Make Up Forever Profusion bronzer and when I tested it in store, I knew it would be a great bronzer for a very subtle glow.

Catrice just seems to keep on bringing out new products. Just last week they released their latest summer limited edition: Soleil D’Eté and I was very much intrigued by the products. It’s a very summery collection with lots of bronzes and metallics. I decided to pick up the liquid bronzer, the powder bronzer and the highlighter.
