theBalm Bahama Mama

Move over Hot Mama a new girl is in town! theBalm has introduced a new powder to it's popular line up entitled Bahama Mama!

In the vein of Hot Mama this cute compact is filled with beach-worthy bronze powder to give your skin a sun kissed tan without the sun!

The Muse no likey bronze powder but she definately likey the cute packaging on this! I Heart Hot Mama but I can't love Bahama Mama sadly! But hey for all you sun divas out there this be the perfect powder!

Love it?

Want it?

Tell the Muse!

Hmmm... Well, I DO need a new bronzer. I had to ditch my trusty Wet n' Wild bronzer, as it was made in China (long story, will post on it soon).

Bahama Mama looks nice, but I doubt my skin will be able to tolerate the polyethylene. Plus that upskirt pic on the packaging kinda grosses me out; it's like "Girls Gone Wild: Polynesia". I'm considering Make Up Forever's Matt Bronze, instead.

PS: I read your previous post on Clarisonic. You gots to ditch the Clarisonic before it's too late! Don't makes the same mistake that I did!

Seriously, demand a refund.

I'm not into bronzing I can easily get a tan here in manila :) hehehe I saw these on beauty bars and I think I'd rather use my money on eyeshadows or lipglosses, rather than a bronze powder :)

Can I ask why you're not into these powders?

hey mandy :)

Can't wait to hear it ;) I've been swamped so haven't visited nearly enough! Be over soonish!

LOL You're nuts :P The color looks utterly off to me. When I think bronze I'm more into the healthy peach color where as this is cardboard brown..or is it only me that noticed that?!

Just replied a bit ago. Sorry for the delay ;) I'm returning it to Sephora shortly PHEW!

Why did you like it?

morning nicks :) how are you today!?

I'd say save your cash for something better too ;) Tanning, bronzing, etc...they make my full face even fuller. I hate the look of a tan on my skin! Yuk! I'm already sporting a double chin with a tan it becomes triple ;) hehe!

No, that wasn't the review. Actually, I said that I desperately wanted it, but when I got, I didn't even used it for the first two weeks. Then I used it regularly for like, a week. I do this kinda stuff a LOT. Before it was the Clarisonic, it was the T3 Tourmaline hairdryer (oy vey!). For 2009, I'm planning on not buying anything that's not a necessity; this madness has to stop!

MMm don't feel bad I'm the same. I go through a honeymoon period with stuff and I'm loving it at the moment but within a few days, a week, a month,'s laying under bathroom counter with the rest of the crap I only used for a few days. I'm wasteful like that at times :(

I guess it's part of being a girl!?

I'm sorta kinda banning myself at this point.

I'm trying to refrain from going nuts with cosmetics too since I've got a load of PR crap to review sometimes I get really overwhelmed :P
