Nars Laguna has long reigned supreme as one of my absolute favourite bronzers. However since discovering Delice De Soleil Bronzing Powder from Bourjois, I have not used it for at least 3 weeks. The packaging is so sleek and actually quite snazzy, it does look a lot more expensive than it is. Included is a massive flip mirror, which you can rotate.
Not quite sure why you would flip this, but it’s a great sized mirror, especially handy for any touch ups on the go. Also included is one of those brushes you never use! (again handy for on the move)
This bronzer provides a lovely warm glow to the skin, as always we want something natural, not
muddy or orange, and this does the job perfectly. It comes in 2 colours Fair/Medium and Dark/Tanned.
Ignore the overspray on the above picture, there is no shimmer at all, it’s completely matt. Easy to blend and just leaves a lovely glow to the skin. The texture is similar to Laguna and the colour is not far off either. A great cheaper alternative.
As of late, I have been using this on my cheek bones and temples, and love the effect it gives. I’m fair skinned so don’t use too much, however you could build up the colour to provide a strong contour.
And it’s good for your skin:
Cocoa bean for radiance
Orange blossom extract for hydration
SPF 15 – mineral filter (sun protection) Non pore blocking
On the apples of my cheeks I have been using Bourjois’ Bronzing Primer (£9.99)
Now this little pot of sun is well known for being a supposed dupe for Chanel’s Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universal. First of all I have both, this is a lot more moussey then Tan De Chanel and a lot easier to blend. Chanel’s formula is much more ‘packed’ in the container. This is literally like chocolate mousse in a pot. It smells much, much better than it looks (of chocolate) and applied with a light hand can leave a lovely golden glow/sheen to the skin. I haven’t been using as a primer but as an actual bronzer. Do not overload though, especially if you are fair as you could definitely look orange. It is soooo rich and a little goes a very long way. I think this would suit all skin tones (one universal shade available). Both of these products are perfect for the Summer and are just lovely. Applied with a light hand, you can definitely achieve a St Tropez Glow as opposed to an Essex tan.
