I have another quick review for you guys today.
I received a sample of the Balm’s Balm Desert Bronzer/Blush in my July Birchbox.
I will leave the link to my Birchbox post in case you missed it.
The full size version of this product retails for $21.
Here is the description:
Dive right into theBalm’s latest sun-kissed must-have…Balm Desert®. This blush and bronzer is specially formulated to be long-wearing and fade-resistant.
Because it has a hint of red, it made a terrible contouring bronzer (at least on me).
The good news is that it doesn’t have any shimmer so it could be used to contour. It does give skin that nice “glow” though.
As a blush though, it worked fantastically! I loved the way it looked-especially when I was going for a more natural/yet look at my summer glow look.
It worked a lot better than other bronzed blushes I’ve tried.
The powder is very finely milled which makes it feel very silky and smooth and is great for blending out on your skin. The only downside is the fact that it does kick up a lot of product and makes a bit of a mess on the packaging.
It is definitely long wearing too. It does fade somewhat throughout the day, but not terribly. I was shocked at the end of the day when I could still see product.
I have also been using this as an eyeshadow and love it! I love mid toned reddish brown tones placed in my crease so this works perfectly for me!
Overall, I do like this product. I don’t know if I would actually purchase the full size simply because I would only be using it as a blush.
If you have any recommendations on similar products let me know. I would love to try out more bronzer/blush products!
Have a beautiful and wonderful day!
