Self Tanners -Au Courant -Instants Sunless Tanning Lotion

on 6/30/2013 10:30:00 PM


i've been using this tanner (i use the lotion version) exclusively since i found it years ago after trying everything i could get my hands on. it has a natural tan color on my pale, white skin.

i really like how the lotion is brown out of the container so I can always be sure that i'm putting it on evenly.

here are a few tips for applying it:

first, apply your regular moisturizer first and then let that dry (especially if you have dry skin)

second, I like to use a makeup wedge to apply it to my face. it does dry fairly quickly so i do a quarter of my face at a time. be sure to blend it in immediately after you put it on a section of your face and not let a blob or streak sit in one area while you are working on another area or it will leave a darker 'stained' patch under the blob or streak.

third, i let the tanner dry for about five minutes and then apply my regular makeup.

if you apply to your body be sure to put on lotion and let it dry before you apply the tanner and be careful on your knees and feet. i usually mix a little regular body butter with it when i apply to those areas. I always use vinyl gloves when applying to the body and using some type of sponge applicator is better.

this is the GREATEST tanner ever and the color is NOT orange as a few reviews say. i have tried everything and this is the best. i would pay double the price for it.

Powder -Au Courant -Pressed Mineral Powder Foundation

on 8/19/2007 8:55:00 PM


Thanks to Makeupalley, I've found a new product that I never heard of. I'm always looking for the best mineral foundation. I've always been a loose-powder girl, too, until now. I have been using Everyday Minerals and I was pretty happy with the Semi-Matte formulation, but never quite found the best color match and didn't like the way my face looked in the afternoon after several hours of wear. This Au Courant compact is great. First of all, less mess, I still apply it with a powder brush and it's easier to get the right amount on the brush. Second, I love the shade Blonde for my NW15 fair skin. Third, being in a compact, I can take it to work with me and easily apply a little extra here or there if I need to. I love it. It provides a nice natural looking coverage. It's fairly pricey at $35 a compact, but I think it's worth it.
EDIT: I went through it too quickly to use as a regular daily foundation. It's good to keep in your purse for touch ups throughout the day...

Self Tanners -Au Courant -Sunless Face gel (clear)

I adore this stuff. I don't break-out from it and love the color it gives me. The fact that's it's a gel allows you to wear it under make-up.

Self Tanners -Au Courant -Bronze Face Gel

I am a little surprised by some of the reviews here but being a self tan "addict", I know that the biggest thing is just trial and error. What works for some might not for others. I have bought this product over and over because it gives me a really nice brown colour, never orangey, after only one application. I usually do 2 days back to back for the perfect shade. The only drawback is that I wouldn't go out of the house with this on because it does give a kind of "dirty" look...but putiing it on beofre bed and rinsing in the morning works fine for me.
