It’s no secret that I am completely addicted to bronzer and having bronzed skin, considering I’ve only had my blog for two months and this has been my second blog post all about bronzer skin. Bronzing is a step in my everyday makeup routine, I find that using bronzer really does sculpt and give a little more colour to my face especially those early mornings were I’m half zombie, half human, bronzer is then my best friend.
They are a lot of bronzers too choose from in the makeup industry but I’m going to share with you my top 5 favourite affordable ones. Let’s be honest affordable drugstore bronzers are just as good or sometimes better as high end bronzers.
MUA Mosaic bronzer is on the very cheap affordable end of the 5 as it comes in at £2.50 only, yet one of the most stunning bronzers! As it is more than a bronzer, it has a blush colour and quite a lot of shimmer for it to be a highlighter as well all in one. MUA did a very good job making this little cute product, as the colour pay off is insane and it compliments my cheek bones very well. Cheap and cheerful.
Bourjois Powder is no stranger to my makeup collection, this one in particular as I’ve had it for 3 years now and it has still not developed a proper dent in the product! AMAZING! The bronzer itself is very warm and rich which gives tanned skin a gorgeous glow, and at the price that it is for it to last that long is also pretty amazing, people say it smells like chocolate I would say more vanilla for me, I think it might just be my smelling sense.
The Bourjois bronzing primer is very similar to the powder but in a mouse consistency which is perfect then for contour under foundation as your skin then looks sun kissed, almost as if you just came back from holiday, and who would not want that sun kissed holiday look? It is quite expensive coming at £10 for a drugstore product but you really only need a tiny bit of this as it is very pigmented. Personally I think it is almost a dupe for the Chanel Soeil Tan De Chanel, I’ve even heard people say the Bourjois one is better but don’t tell Chanel that.
L’oreal Glam bronzer is a new one to grace my collection, and honestly I cannot say I regret buying this! I have seen so many reviews that I had to see what the hype was about. Now I understand. The bronzer has slight flexes of gold running through it which look gorgeous with a smokey eye. Also the bronzer it self is very pigmented! I looove it and would say it can be used for contouring with a really light hand that is because of how strong the colour is. The packaging is super sophisticated and sleek also it comes with a little compact mirror underneath and a contour brush for on the go touch ups. Perfect!
Last but not least the Sleep Contour Kit, this is a product I cannot live without, this has to be my third purchase of this product because how much I use it and then it ends up running out fast! But I use a lot of this product because it’s the perfect contour shade, completely matte no shimmer what so ever. It comes in 3 different shades to suit a variety of skin tones, and the rich warm pigmentation of the product also gives a bronzy sculpted glow to the face. The bronzer is a duo which comes with a highlighter which I’m honestly not a massive fan of because it is so shimmery but it works if you literally tap the brush into the highlighter, it will work perfect with the contour shade then.
I hope you liked this review and took something back from it or even learned something about any of these bronzers.
