It's the best bronzer I have used ever. I use it as blush , bronzer, and for contouring. It's a big deal if you have it due it's a multi-purpose. Its color a real tan like a sun kisses. definitely I recommend it and I will repurchase it again.

This is too grey for my NC40 skin. I could see it being a great contour, but I prefer an all-over bronze, and this just doesn't work for that. It ends up looking muddy.

Pigmented, lasts all day and has a great color. Perect as a transition eyeshadow shade, too.

i like the tone of bahama mama... it is a pinkish brown on me. not orangey!
it seems to have a slight sheen to it but no shimmer at all.

the problem is that it is very subtle on me, i can barely see it.
i also tried it as a transition eye shadow and it is lovely yet still quite subtle.

i am nw20-25 in mac terms : light-medium on the cool side (pinkish)

if you like a bronzer shade like this and are lighter in shade than I am, then you might like this one.
it will be good for me to use on no-makeup-makeup days

Extremely orange-y looking, especially after oxidizing on the skin after a long day, literally looks like my face has been dunked in Cheetos. Also really patchy, especially on drier spots where it barely clings on to the skin.

This is the type of bronzer that I can contour/bronze at the same time. I just lightly touch the pan with my tarte swirl brush and dust it under my cheekbones. I don't even swirl my brush on this because it's really pigmented and it can get quite muddy if you put too much so be mindful of that (I basically use this just for bronzing because I don't really like strong contour looks on me, I feel like it makes me look old). Small amount of this gives me enough shadows and dimensions to my round face and I really like the color as well, not too gray and not too orange. I also contour my nose with this one and it looks really nice and natural! This also lasts me all day considering that I have a very oily skin. This is my first highend product so it's kind of pricey for me but if you're going to compare it to other highend bronzers this is definitely cheap and worth it! One thing I don't like is the packaging, don't get me wrong I love the design and I love how sleek and how travel friendly it is but I kind of wish the mirror is a little bigger! I like seeing my entire face when I'm wearing makeup but I guess it's unnecessary because I have a separate mirror anyway, so I guess I'll give this five lippies because I really do enjoy this product. Even if I have tons of drugstore bronzers and would like to try out other highend bronzers like the toofaced and the hoola one, I'd still definitely buy Bahama Mama once I ran out and will never leave my makeup stash. I'm such a sucker for bronzers! Other people maybe obsessed with blinding highlighters but mine are bronzers! Love the difference it makes on my round face.

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.

The color is very suitable for contour since is not shimmery, I really like it and the price is good
