The weather’s getting a lot warmer and it’s already slowly starting to feel a bit like summer here! Yet, we’re all still as pale as ever (especially me!) so it’s time to get the bronzing powder out!
One of the bronzer’s I’ve just started using again is the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Golden Light.
Packaging: An 8g, glossy black circular compact that opens upwards to reveal a mirror on the inner lid and bronzing powder at the bottom.
Shade: This Golden Light shade is a beautiful bronze shade that looks so soft and natural at the same time. It’s completely matte too which is great to use for contouring.
Texture: This feels so soft and velvety which makes application so easy. There may be some fall out when dipping your brush into it (not as much as you see in the images here), so just be sure to tap off the excess so you don’t get too much on at one go. It’s easier to build up the colour slowly than to have too much on at a go!
Application: This gorgeous bronzer quickly warms up the skin, whilst keeping it looking natural. I just lightly apply some on my forehead, temples and upper cheeks with a medium sized fluffy brush for a warm glow.
If contouring, I’ll use a small brush that’s slightly tapered and apply it to the hollows of my cheeks, down the sides of my nose, and the jawline.
Cost: As I don’t get Bobbi Brown where I’m from, I got this online from Amazon UK about a year ago. At that time it sold for about £27.24 however it seems that now they’re selling for £23.00!
Nevertheless, this is definitely a pricey bronzer, which is to be expected coming from Bobbi Brown. That being said, it’s a really good quality so I’m quite sure you won’t be disappointed.
Verdict: Definitely one of the best I’ve tried so far. The colour is so natural so it doesn’t look muddy or orange on even the palest of skin. It’s also very easy to apply and actually quite difficult to really make a mess with this product (unless you really overdo it!).
This Golden Light shade would have the best visibility on fair to slightly tanned skin tones. So, if you’re darker than this, you may need to opt for one of their darker shades for more prominence.
How are you warming up your skin for Spring?
