Hauling The Balm CosmeticsFriday, May 09, 2014
The Balm is one those brands that seems to come out of nowhere and take over the industry overnight. I'd only ever seen a few bits in one store and then all of a sudden they were all over the Blogosphere and Youtube. So naturally I was dying to try them and I snapped up a few bits when they were on Hautelook. The Balm has a collection of amazingly unique products - that you can't find anywhere else on the market - that span over makeup, skincare, haircare and tools. The best bit is they all come in stunning vintage inspired packaging that I absolutely adore.

Lastly, I bit the "buying bases online" bullet and picked up the Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer in the shade lighter than light. I've not yet tried this for a full day but so far I am in love. First off, the shade is perfect! It is the best match to my skin that I have ever found, in any sort of base. It has a pink undertone that blends in beautifully so I don't have to worry about looking too yellow or uneven, it just sinks right in while evening out any redness in my complexion. I can see this becoming my go-to base for the upcoming spring and summer months and I can't wait to really test it out!
You can pick up any of The Balm products from Rexall Drugstores, www.beautyjoint.com or on www.thebalm.com
