”Loved them! The eyeshadows are better pigmented and stay on better than most eyeshadows I’ve tried for this price and the I love the Bahama Mama contour powder! Goes on well and looks natural while on - doesn’t have a glittery pigment. Will definitely be repurchasing when I run out.”

I got this bronzer way back and this is my first ever bronzer, and I love it, now that it's here I'm actually considering repurchasing it! This is just a great bronzer that works on light to medium skin and meshes really well onto the skin. It's matte but has a very healthy glow to it like it has super micro shimmer, and I love it because it looks sun-kissed!about 2 months ago
I gave it five stars for these reasons: a. it is affordable considering the amount of product you get versus mainstream makeup brands. b. the color is buildable so you can go for minimal and natural sculpted face or channel hardcore contour. c. the powder is blendable and makeup newbie-friendly. d. it stays put the whole despite some transfer to my handkerchief. e. LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING. The cardboard body may feel feeble at first place, but it's pretty sturdy.2 months ago
A lot of reviews will say that this is a dupe for Hoola, but I disagree. Hoola is quite neutral and mimics a shadow well, making it great for both contouring and bronzing. Bahama Mama on the other hand, is a lot warmer has more orange, which makes it better for bronzing than contouring. That said, quality is great, the powder is finely milled and stays on for a good amount of time. A little goes a long way! Love the slim packaging too.2 months ago
This may be a little pricey, but this will last you a long time. It's so pigmented that you don't need a lot of product or else you'll go overboard and it'll show on your face. I would use this more for contouring than bronzing just because of its pigmentation & shade. If you use this for bronzing and you really just want a subtle bronze, you'll need to be very very careful & should apply with a light hand.2 months ago
Bonus: they help with breakouts, too!
