Hands down the best bronzer I have ever used!
The packaging is so unique and the smell is lovely too!
I have it in the shade 51 and it doesn't look too orange or streaky on my pale skin.
The texture is so smooth so it looks perfect on top of foundation. I don't think I will ever buy another bronzer again.
Before I purchased this Bourjois Bronzer I had the Dior Sun Couture bronzer. A good and beautifull bronzer but also expensive and limited. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this Bourjois bronzer could match up to the Dior (not all the way but it's a good second!). Although I have to say for the Bourjois Bronzer as well for the Dior bronzer, when you have ridiculously pale skin like I do in winter times, please do not use this! I looked like a oompa-loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate factory and it definitely wasn't attractive.
But, when you use a little self-tanning (l'oreal face!) in winter or when it's summertime and you have been out and about in the sun, this bronzer will do wonders for you.
I am in love with this bronzer!!Not only it is the perfect shade for me ( i bought 52 shade) but it also gives a nice goldy glow! I apply it with a blush brush and it is amazing!It is not streaky or too heavy because it is buildable. I ve bought a thousand bronzers in my life but I have to admit this is my HG bronzer.Most bronzers tend to look orange or streky but this one is perfect.Υou can also see golden shimmers outdoors which is not extreme.It gives a subtle glow. Not to mention the great candy scent! this powder smells like sth sweet but I cannot tell. Overally I will buy this bronzer again because I am more than satisfied. I give 5 lippies!! continued >>
omg!!!! my first bronzer ever! I purchased this while I was in St Maarten in 2007,I also bought the kabuki brush, most amazing bronzer! I still have a lot of left, has not reached the bottom yet! it smells amazing! it's matte but also gives you a little shimmer
I got this bronzer based on the reviews and the smell is indeed devine! I got the 51, and it does have a little bit of shimmer but it's not over-the-top at all. I find that a lot of product comes off on my brush, so a little goes a long way, but it blends pretty nicely. I love how easily it goes on compared to the rimmel sunshine, I feel like I have to swipe it on ten times until I get a decent glow, and with this you just need one swipe. I'm pretty sure a good brush goes a long way with making any bronzer better, though.
Love, love, love!
1) it smells like chocolate
2) colour is perfect for any skin tone
3) has a subtle silver glitter to it
4) looks great when dusted on chest and arms too!
I have this in Peaux Mates/Halees 52. This is a great bronzer – I’m loving all the Bourjois products I’ve purchased during a spring make over I got. I’ve been looking for a new bronzer – I’d been buying The Body Shop shimmer strip bronzer, which is a great product, but too shimmery for me now. At my Bourjois makeover she used this cute ‘chocolate box’ of bronzer, shaped like a chocolate bar in a wonderful little sleek book-like container with a magnet closure. It says it has “hints of sunshine” in the bronzer and you can see little glittery bits in the powder. But it doesn’t show up glimmery on the skin. What I like is the colour is great without being muddy, and not too shimmery and not too flat. Plus it smells delicious! Love it!
Im quite fair but I feel this gives a nice hint of colour, making me look healthy without looking unatural (when applied correctly with a light hand). Another good point is that it doesn't contain huge chunks of glitter like some bronzers. It also has a yummy smell which makes it a pleasure to put on.
This is my second one of these bronzers and its fab! Great for contouring or just puting all over the face for that sun kissed glow, this bronzer has litttle flakes of gold in it, but its nice a fine and you dont look all sparkly. This has a really nice smell to it which i loved.
I have this in Peaux Claires/Medianes 51 and I use this for contouring my cheekbones and nose and it makes a huge difference.
The product is very soft and goes on smoothly with lovely subtle glints and has a heavenly coconut/chocolate smell. It will last long when applied over a good base. Don't expect it to last forever otherwise.
Lots of product in a cute compact packaging for a good price.
Since I contour with it rather than bronze myself, I will consider other contouring products before repurchasing. As for it being a bronzer, I'll surely repurchase!
UPDATE: Tried MAC's accentuate/sculpt and I have to say it works so much better than this one regarding contouring. I should also say that over applying this bronzer will make you look very orange so watch out.
