Hello my lovelies,
I have been wanting to get this bronzer forever and then it took me forever to write this review.
This has been the most raved about bronzer in the beauty circles after the NARS LAGUNA bronzer, I wanted one anyway so I thought why not try this one, but then this isnt readily available here I had to wait and well I finally got my hands on it and now I know why all the hype.WHAT THE BRAND SAYS:

PRICE: $14.95 USD This bronzer is priced on the higher side for a drugstore brand.
Packaging is like a standard compact packaging with two sections ,the fisrt one opens up with hte product and a mirror and
the one at the bottom has a brush, which is rather hard and rough on the skin. I quiet like the packaging and specially the color, gives it rich looking feel. But it is a tad bit bulky.
When I opened it I was disappointed as I thought t would be too light for my skin and wouldn’t show up as I wanted to use as a contour product also.But after I swatched it I was pleasantly surprised as it appeared to be just about right.
So next came the pigmentation test, I quiet liked it, you dont need a lot of color for the effect to show up, and the bronzer blends like a dream . Another thing that I liked the most was it didnt oxidize on me, it did not turn orange after some time.
But this bronzer is not matte, it has fine very fine milled shimmer to it, which I was aware of while purchasing it, but hoped that it wouldnt be too evident, and its not, the shimmer rather gives the face a glow under sunlight , and otherwise it isnt very evident and obvious.
I use an angled blush brush to apply it as a contour under my blush, and also to contour the entire face where ever required. Sometimes I use it with a bigger blush brush to warm up the face.
So overall I am quiet loving it. It feels very light on the skin and blends very easily and also the shimmer present is very very fine and rather imparts a glow to the skin. I would definitely recommend it and repurchase this one.
Until next time.
