Hello my lovelies,
I love bronzers, there is nothing better than sweeping your face with a little bronzer to give a little colour to your face throughout the year. More recently I have been adding to my collection, there are so many different products out there now!
I prefer my bronzers to be on the more matte side, which makes it more difficult to get find. I prefer the sparkle and glitter to come from my highlighter, I suppose this is personal preference. I thought I would share with you my go to bronzers that I simply cannot live without!
Bourjois – Bronzing Powder See Here
This is one of the first bronzers I ever brought and I love it. First off, I quite like the packaging however it is a little bulky for the product inside. The best part about this is that it smells amazing. I have had this product for quite some time and it still smells insane. People have said it smells of chocolate, I don’t agree. I would say it just reminds me of summer. I think you have to go into your local boots and smell it!
It does have glitter in this bronzer but when I apply this to my face I don’t actually see the glitter too much, maybe I’m blind but it is more on the matte side. It applies effortlessly and blends nicely into the skin. It is a powder finish which I much prefer, however you do need a fair bit on your brush as it isn’t crazy pigmented. Despite this, I have had it for ages and I still have got quite a lot left!
NARS – Laguna Bronzing Powder See Here
The NARS website describe this product as a cult classic and that is exactly what it is for me! I don’t use this as much for day to day use as this is one of the only ones in my collection that is pretty shimmery. I do use it on nights out when I want more of a glow and it is simply perfect for it.
It is pretty pigmented so a little will go a long way which I love especially for a high end product. It sits beautifully on the skin and blends like a dream. Obviously the packaging is amazing as are all products are from NARS, its super slim and has a massive mirror which makes it perfect for travelling and on the go touch ups. I don’t know many people who haven’t tried this and love it.
*excuse the dirty mirror, I didn’t realise when I took the picture LOL*
MAC – Matte Bronzing Powder See Here *My one is from a limited edition range, but I believe this is pretty similar.*
By the name you can tell this is a complete matte bronzer which I absolutely love. This is what I wear on a day to day basis as it doesn’t have any shimmer it just gives me that bronze goddess look -I’m sure you know what I mean! I sweep this around my face and I am good to go. It doesn’t budge from my face all day so I don’t ever feel like I need to touch up throughout the day.
The pigmentation is pretty impressive and a little goes a long way. Considering I use this almost every day it doesn’t even look like I have made a dent in this but trust me I do! I love MAC’s packaging especially their limited edition ranges and this one has a mirror which again is perfect for travelling.
Let me know what your favourite bronzers are and if you have tried any of the products I have mentioned!
