Bahama Mama - well if you can't hop on a plane, this is a pretty decent substitute. Really like this bronzer. It's neutral and matte - 2 things that are definitely a plus for light contouring and when you don't want shimmer all over your face, and in areas that you want to recede. Good on light skins, but even as someone with warm undertones, I also prefer a neutral and not too warm-shade bronzer (why some companies still make weird chalky orangey toned bronzers is beyond me - stop it). The product can be built up or lightly dusted without streaks. Super like that the packaging is nice and compact - doesn't take up your whole purse or vanity (I really like some Physicians Formula products, but their compacts are huge !).

Nice bronzer, not too pigmented and easy to apply. The packaging is carton based with magnet and mirror inside. Strong and small bronzer :)

I feel this one is a bit darker than Hoola, but it works just as well at contouring. Maybe a bit too well for me as I'm quite fair and I have to work harder to blend this one out (which is why I keep it for summer and use hoola in winter). Very good quality though, pigmented, and I love theBalm in general! Cute packaging and often more conscious of ingredients.

Amazing stuff!! Has replaced ma hoola for everyday usage. Still have a lotta time for hoola ( its great too) but bahama mama is just better (on my skin anyway)for contouring.
I think i paid about 25 £ for it in uk , last year! Still havent made a dent in it. Will last for ages (like hoola did) just looks a bit more natural and warmer than other contour bronzers.
I put elizabeth arden shimmery bronzer above it and over some of it cos i likes that sparkly shimmery kick :)

I received a very S M A L L mini of this in my January 2016 Ipsy subscription. I love it! It's what I keep in my purse for contour touch up. I've read the reviews & got a mini Hoola (USD$15) on order coz I lost mine unfortunately [if I found it, the new 1 can be stowed in my purse], this also doubles as an eyeshadow in a pinch which is what makes it great for purses in that it can carry double duty! I put this on w a MAC travel brush or elf beautifully bare brush I have hot mama & Bahama Mama in my purse for blush & contour. TheBalm is annoying because I guess it's sold in Kohls which I don't shop there & I guess I will have to check out kohls dot com or something I guess I normally use Chanel dot com or Macy's dot com. #winning

Love, love, love this product.
It is easy to apply and looks very natural and flawless. If you want a very natural bronzed look, you can get that by using Bahama Mama, but if you want a stronger and more hard contour, you can get that as well because it's buildable.

Love this bronzer!
It is very natural looking bronzer, blends really good! I like the fact that it is talc free! It doesn't clog pores and feels very light on skin. It is not orange and I do have pale skin! It may seem dark in the package but it is not dark att all when you blend it on your face. I have no complains att all and I would buy it again if I run out of it!

Great bronzer that can also be used as a contour. I use this with the Hoola brush (from Benefit) that is sold separately and that gives my fair skin a nice sweep of colour without looking to muddy. Perfect for everyday, and compact to throw in a makeup-bag on the go! LOVE!
