I own two bronzers already but those YT gurus got to me! And it's not expensive so I thought I'd give it a whirl.
I'm suprised to find that this may just edge out all other bronzers. I'm extremely pale, and the #51 shade is incredibly subtle. No orange, no glitter.
There's no such thing as a perfect bronzer, but this is a darn good product. Great packaging, good price point, very dense so will likely last years, and has a nice chocolate-orange smell. I'm already recommending it to all my pale friends.
This is testimony to how easily influenced I am. I have bronzers galore - possibly because I struggle to find bronzers that work well with my light skin (NW15/20). After listening to a few beauty gurus on YT rave about this I decided to give it a go - apart from that there was a 3 for 2 offer on in Boots. I bought the Bourjois Kabuki at the same time.
I am really impressed with how well the 51/52 shade gives me a healthy glow without making me look dirty or orange. I am sure if you applied this with a heavy hand, you could achieve just that effect, however i would rather just stick with the subtle glow. It is quite matte and could be used as a contour powder as well. It lasts well.
The packaging is 'nice'. I wish it had a mirror and a safer fastening than the magnetic strip. That said, I am sure the mirror would make this very nicely priced bronzer a little harder on the purse, so i'll stick to no frills packaging.
I have this in ''52''. The shade works well for my medium skin-tone, both as bronzer and contour since it is fairly matte. (it claims to have some sort of ''glistening'' effect, but as far as I can see, it appears quite matte). I reach for this alot because I can control the build-up of colour on my skin and makes for great contouring that looks very natural. Doesn't make me look shiny at all. Packaging is quite cute. Bronzer is pressed in a chocolate block form and comes in a cardboard packaging. There is lots of product in the pan so it will last me forever! :)
I could not believe my eyes to see so many positive reviews. I think I need to give this product a second chance.
I bought this because bronzers are seldom introduced into the asian market. I am NC20, with some gold/red undertones. However what I detest about the product most, is that I somehow cannot apply it evenly. I tried many brushes, tried using lots of powder before application, but somehow I still see streaks. The color is also a tad fake looking on me. On a positive note, this product is relatively cheap for such a huge pack of product. The packaging is also so impossibly cute, like a chocolate bar. The scent is also very nice with amazing shimmers. Now I use it as a eyeshadow.
i luuuuuuuuuuuuuuv this bronzer soooooooo much ...i got it in 51 oh my god it's a beautiful color NOT orange at all ...i use it to bring back color to my face after applying foundation... it makes my face come back to life once i apply this bronzer and warmth up my face , brilliant !! I apply this bronzer in a 3 method...it lasts long also and the color doesn't change at all . Of course it's a stable in my makeup bag...its kinda expensive here in saudi arabia 90 SAR = 24 USD here at Boots
Tip : in order to make this bronzer work for you , you should use a brush that can pick up the color well , use a dense brush that has some stiffness to it ,i use the bare minerals full flawless face brush and it works great with this bronzer it picks the color easily and apply the color nicely
this is a great Bronzer and reasonably priced. i have used
mac (that was to orange)
benifit (that made my face look patchy)
too faced (that made me look dirty)
i would rate this product above most high end brands.........it's soft smells really good and blends well i love it
I don't like this bronzer much at all. I've tried #51 and #52 - #51 is lighter but very orange toned. #52 is darker but still looks quite orange on my NC30/35 golden skintone. The bronzer applies patchy no matter what brush I use (109, angle brush, kabuki, fluffy...) and breaks me out along my cheekbones when I use it as a contour. The smell is very synthetic, unnessecary and overwhelming. If you're looking for a fairly cheap bronzer then I would recommend giving this a go but I much prefer my TF Chocolate Soleil.
I'm surprised at the brilliant ratings of this product but everyone is different!
I quite liked using this bronzer, it smells nice, I like the packaging and can't complain about the price! It's a nice matte finish at the colours are great, I bought 51 as I was looking for more of a contour colour.
I found that the powder became very hard even after a few uses, I would have to scrape the surface first to actually pick up any product. But mostly it did not agree with my skin at all, the hollows of my cheeks and jaw line are now full of clogged pores and I've had to adopt an expensive skin care routine to try and draw it all out which I am also paying for in breakouts!
So a thumbs down for me, but the product does not say that it is non comedogenic so it's my own fault for not checking, then again I had no problems at all up until this one product. Never mind.
I have trouble finding good bronzers for my skin as I have really fair skin (nc15 in mac terms). I saw a few good reviews on You Tube and it also popped up in peoples favourites/make up tutorials so I thought I may as well try it as it's cheap (around six pounds). I got the shade 51 & I'm really pleased to say it's great for my skin colour and doesn't break me out as a lot of other make up does. All in all a good bronzer & with it smelling of chocolate too - who can resist!:)
Bought from Ebay for about £2.99 and used nearly everyday for six months, when the scent went a bit weird so I assume it had reached its expiry date. It didn't make my face look dirty, or ridiculously shiny, smelt divine, and was so practical with its slim design. I even scored the surface a couple of times when I used it for contour and wanted to load my brush more fully, and it still looked even and just the right side of sheer. Bourjois is a favourite brand and I'm glad this didn't disappoint, especially at the bargain price i paid for it.
