Hey everyone! So in today's post im gonna review these goodies from The Balm: Downboy blush, Fratboy blush, Bahama mama bronzer and Mary Loumanizer highlighter. So read on!
Downboy:Starting off with Downboy, the packaging is really cute as you can see (as well as all others), it has a mirror inside and a matte cool toned pink blush. The blush is pretty well pigmented but is somewhat powdery in texture (i suppose i was expecting a more velvety texture) but anyhow blends pretty nicely. There's no scent to any of these. The staying power is pretty good, around 7ish hours (as far as i've tested).
Fratboy:This is a matte bright pinky coral blush and it has a more softer texture compared to downboy (not sure why). This blush is also very pigmented with the staying power of 7ish hours.
Bahama Mama Bronzer:This a great shade for contouring. Its matte and not orangy at all, which makes it a perfect shade for contouring.
Finally, mary loumanizer :). What a gorgeous dull gold highlighter/shimmer with a great staying power. This comes in a silver plastic packaging with a mirror inside. It does not have that glittery shimmer with huge chunks of glitter, rather a really blended shine. So it can be used as an everyday highlighter.
Swatches for comparison:
Here are all 4 swatches together for comparison purposes.
(L to R): Mary loumanizer, Bahama mama bronzer, Downboy, Fratboy.
- Good pigmentation
- Good staying power
- Cute packaging
- No scent
- Easily blendable
- A little expensive
- These might not suit all skin tones, better suited for fair to fair medium skin tones.
Over all im really happy with all these! They have great pigmentation, the bronzer n blushes are matte and everyday wearable kinda shades while the highlighter is simply gorgeous for anytime. I got these from different places, Maryloumanizer for Pkr 2400, and the rest for Pkr 2000 each.
