Bronzing products

A good bronzer can make a huge difference when it comes to make up. In the last couple of months, maybe a year -conturing your face with Bronzer became a huge deal and everyone seems obsessed with finding the right product to lift, hide, contour specific areas in your face.
In this weeks blogpost I´ll share my favorite products to do all these things with.

Let´s have some fun with bronzer, shall we ? :) Go!

This bronzer is by Kiko Cosmetics and is in the color 01 Forward Sienna. This bronzer I am wearing most of the times. It has three different colors in the packaging, a light brown, a middle toned brown and a darker shade. What I love about this bronzer is that you can apply your bronzer quite controlled. you can start of with swirling your bronzing brush into the lighter shades and see if you like the finish it leaves on your skin. If you want to you can add the darker color to give it a darker finish. It´s a perfect "all in one product" because when you get a little bit of a tan you can swirl your brush in the darker color and it gives you the perfect shade for your tanned skin. Huge favorite !

This bronzer is the sun club bronzer for darker skin. (color: 02 sunny)
The sun club bronzer by essence smells like sunscreen! amazing, if you ask me. I am not only in for it for the smell, I do love the bronzer itself. I am hands down, not a person with darker skin, but the swatch of the lighter shade didn't leave a good amount of bronziness ;)
Don´t be afraid to test the darker color, it is beautiful even on pale skin. I promise you.
It is a bit more orange toned than other bronzer but for the prize (around 2 pounds) it is an amazing bronzer.

The poudre bronzante delice de poudre bronzing powder in the shade 52 is a product a lot of blogger and youtuber talk about. I know that Tanya Burr is a big fan of it and when I first got my hands on it, I fell in love right away.
The product smells awesome. It actually smells like chocolate and the packaging looks like a chocolate bar. how cute is that?
Not only is the packaging and the smell the cutest thing ever, the bronzer itself is amazing as well. I love bourjois paris products. 

The most- likely "most famous" bronzer. Everyone know about the Benefit - Hoola bronzer. I have to say the price is insane! benefit products are pricy! I remember getting this one a horrible day and I wanted to treat myself to something really nice. I only use this bronzer at special events. I just have to say it, it is the best bronzer I have ever used. I am not regretting getting it, actually I will cry my eyes out the day I´ll see the bottom of the packaging. It is hands down the most perfect colored bronzer.

This one I got quite recently if you may have seen this product here http://londonstagraam.blogspot.de/2015/04/xxl-beauty-haul-london-edition.html
It´s the instant glow by seventeen. It´s my first ever cream bronzer and I used it a couple of times when the sun came out and I knew I would be outside and in the sun a lot. I like it, I like the formulation and the color. I will use this one during the hot days in summer and on holiday. 

The last bronzer is by soap & glory it´s the solar powder. I got this product together with the seventeen one in my recent London haul. (link above)
What makes this bronzer special? its the glowing finish it leaves on the face. Its not matt like the hoola bronzer sort the sun club bronzer. It´s glowy, perfect for a sping and summer make up.

I hope you liked this weeks blogpost!

  1. Wow you own a lot of bronzers. I only tried sleep from the ones you showed in the picture. I really really like it, although I have to be super careful when I'm using it because it leaves that dirty looking line. S&G product has intrigued me, I love their products but I love the idea of 'the glow!

    1. Hi love,
      blending is the key to a gorgeous make up. You can avoid a "dirty line" like you describe it, by taking a rather large fluffy brush and blend, blend, blend. It takes some practice but you should be fine after a few times you tried doing it.
      I personally love a "glowy" finished make up especially in summer.

      Love, Kim xx

    2. Yeah, I do use a biggish brush. I also have one of those real technique contour brushes from their newest metallic collection, but I still (not always) only sometimes get that dirty looking line. I guess it's trial and error though like you said! Exactly, very bored of matte by this point of the season!

    3. Hi love,
      I have the exact same brush. I think it makes the bronzer looks amazing The brush is different to brushes I used before so it takes some time to get used to the brush. I always use a big real technique blush brush to blend, so it looks as smooth as possible

      Love, Kim xx

  2. Insightful post, Kim! You sure have a lot of bronzers! Great for summer season :)
    I only own one and I think I'm going to stock up on more after reading this post. ❤️
