American cosmetic brand theBalm is finally available in Malaysia!!!
I lurrrrrrrve the packaging and the concept of it. So vintage, so theatrical!
The image of theBalm is a mix of sexy and serious, smart and funny, romantic and rebellious. Plus if you visit the website, you will notice that the brand has a passionate love for pets (especially pugs. Jojo Struys would so love this!!).
Gonna share with you some of the items i got from Balm!
#1 Sexy Mama
is an anti-shine, oil absorbing powder to perfect your face without a trace. Look at the compact box it is sooooo… compact and adorable and it’s totally fab to slip it in your handbag or clutch, no matter how small!!
You could use it after your moisturizer as a very light and sheer foundation. Its provocative power comes from tiny oil absorbing spheres that leave a soft, smooth matte texture behind. Just brush it lightly all over your face for the matte finish!
#2 Two Timer
At one end it has a spiral brush that is called Marcus Lashalot, which is perfect for holding a large amount of product but still applying it evenly.
On the other end, it is an injection molded soft brush named Johnny Finetune. It stays true to his nickname by meticulously separating and lengthening each lash, causing a fan-like effect.
I like to have some of Marcus, then Johnny right after. It’s awesome.
#3 Down Boy
Paisley pink shadow/blusher is so so so <3!!! The color stands out instantly with just a light dab, and it makes you all flushed and charming and flirtatious and everything else!
I <3 this! The good-for-you talc & paraben-free formula is made of fine-graded powder for a smooth, even texture.
After you are done with your make up, apply a thin layer of Sexy Mama again to set the look.
