Merry Sunday to you all, I hope you are relaxing and showing your lovely Mum some appreciation (and then continuing to do so even when it’s not Mother’s Day)
I wanted to give you guys a run down on the bronzer’s I’ve tried and the ways in which I use them the most! My favourite ever bronzer so far is the NARS Laguna – it’s the bronzer that I have ceremoniously hit pan on.
NARS Laguna is so versatile – you can use it for contouring (which is what I use it for most of the time), bronzing up your whole face, slimming down your neck, or like a transition eyeshadow shade. Laguna will probably be too dark for light skin tones but it is just right for me :).
It costs around £28 which is a lot but it’s definitely worth the money for staying power and pigmentation. Look at what a mess it is lol but I won’t chuck it until it’s all disintegrated…
This bronzer is 90% matte, it does have very tiny shimmer particles in it but you don’t really notice – AND it is so pigmented you don’t need very much of it to create some flattering shadow on your face!
The Esteé Lauder Bronze Goddess bronzer is massive – the compact is almost as big as my face! This bronzer is much more of a orangey undertoned bronzer. It’s very warm compared to the NARS Laguna, but it is still a great everyday bronzer to keep in your stash.
The Estée Lauder bronzer is £33 but again, you get a massive mirror and the product is worth it. This bronzer has larger shimmer particles in it than the NARS Laguna so if you want completely matte stay away from this.
Back to a more cool toned bronzer, you could try the Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow which is in the most AMAZING luxurious packaging! The palette has a bronzer which is cool toned (I think I’ve got the Light version) and it has a finely milled champagne coloured highlight in there.
It’s a powder that’s SO finely milled it kind of means it isn’t as glittery, it’s more shimmery than something like MAC Soft & Gentle (I think that’s actually a good thing though). It costs around £49, which is completely excessive so this is perfect for a gift, or a way to really spoil yourself. The sculpting powder is VERY good though, it doesn’t look like much in the pan but is perfect for contouring.
What are your favourite bronzers?!
Thanks for reading everyone!
