I don’t know how long it takes you to use up a bronzer but for me, the answer is A LONG TIME. And yet, every year new bronzers get released, and what high end bronzer is better known than Guerlain’s Terracotta collection? The first ever expensive bronzer I purchased was Guerlain (it was around £29 back then) and it lasted the entire time I was at University. Guerlain’s 2013 Terracotta collection ‘4 Seasons’ comes in […]
I mentioned The Body Shop’s Honey Bronze Collection a few weeks ago, and now I have a few of the products from the range for review! I always though honey and bronze were made to go with each other! I have the tinted body gel, the dry oil and a shimmering powder: Once it gets near to summer, inevitably all the bronzers come out. How quickly do you get through your bronzers? I buy a […]
Everyone knows that Fairy Drops makes fierce mascara with the funny brush but did you know they also have a range of lip glosses and powders?! Neither did I! (What you did? Shush). Fairy Drops Vanilla Puff powders come in these annoying pot things where you tap it to get the product to travel through to the puff. These are supposed to be handy, I find them damn annoying and bulky. Anyway here it is […]
Too pretty to not share with you…excuse my iphone camera pictures! Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess 2011 has a new 6 colour palette, a bronzing blush, 2 pencils and 2 perfumes, one coconutty, one citrusy. This is the Island Oasis Palette – very very nice, the blue and blackened purple are my favourite shades: The bronzing blush is also very pretty with a pale soft pink and a brighter warm pink star on the front. Swatched […]
The more I used luminizer’s and highlighters the more I like them. I have the Estee Lauder illuminating pen and the Laura Mericer one but one of my favourites is the Trish McEvoy product, because of it’s chunky applicator pen. I was rather pleased to get my paws on their Luminizer bronze – just because I have a tan now and I wanted something a little different – there are times when you want something […]
Sue Moxley is a brand I haven’t tried before – I know it was sold at Superdrug but I’m not sure if it’s now on limited counters now. Sue’s brand is called Famous. I got a few products from the range to test out! The Shimmerbrick (hello, Bobbi Brown) in medium is a rich mixture of coppers and bronze. I do like Bobbi Brown’s shimmer bricks, although they are very…shimmery. Be careful where you place, […]
I was sent some bits and pieces from the Boots No 7 collection called the Sun Drenched Collection. There’s the Bronzer, the Eyeshadow Quad and Sun Drenched 22ct lip gloss. The packaging is very golden: The Sun Drenched Collection is Limited Edition…. The quad is a bronzy combination of brown, gold, bronze and silver. The bronzer is completely matte and has variations of bronze, and the lip gloss is a sheer peach with some gold […]
I purchased MAC’s To The Beach Beach Bronze Cream Bronzer (Geez – try saying that after a few drinks) first, then I purchased the Chanel Bronze Universel in a moment of weakness. I was kicking myself, thinking that I had basically bought the same thing twice. Not so, my darlings. Overall, I’ve found the To The Beach collection a disappointment, so much so that I can’t even be bothered going through my purchases. Anyway, so […]
I’m not sure why it took me so long to pick up this Cream Bronzer from Chanel – the Bronze Universel is one of those things I said I’d buy one day, but finally got round to it when Debenhams had 10% off recently. This has lots of positive reviews, and I wasn’t sure if I’d like it – I pretty much dislike any bronzer too orange or too shimmery. They say: The velvety finish […]
Its bronzer season girls and I’ve had so many bronzers land on my door, some orangina hell, some gorgeous (will do a Top 5 Video – yes VIDEO! soon). Soap & Glory’s Solar Poweder is a two sided bronzer that comes in a solid cardboard case. Its bulky to me, but its well made and solid. They say: Mix-and-match multi-shade bronzer for beautifully luminous skin. FREE brush and Mirror included! Sweep the brush lightly over […]
Estee Lauder have launched two Limited Edition Bronzing Products as part of the Bronze Goddess 2010 Summer collection. There’s a Summer Bronzing Gel (a light tinted gel) and a Exotic Bronze Blush which is somewhere between the two! The bronzing gel is a lighweight, sheer formula that gives a warm, non streaky finish. I can second this – I fear tanning products very much, but this was easy peasy to use and gives a natural […]
The third item I picked up from the IMATS weekend is this pretty trio which consists of a bronzer, blush and highlighter: The shades are all slightly shimmering – quite a good multi use product since you have a blush/bronze/highlighter all in one. Swatches: The powder is very soft – you have to be careful not to rub it too much because it comes off quite easily. Here is the blusher and highlighter on (and […]

After lusting after the Prescriptives holiday collection for 2009 (their last Christmas!) I finally managed to get my mitts on a few goodies. Ooh I love festive designs. They have two limited edition baked eyeshadow quads – I got one in Warm: Its a mixture of subtle, wearable golden browns and bronze.
A warmed toned brown, can be used as a blusher or bronzer. What would you wear this with? Note: This image is part of the soon to be launched swatch gallery.

I was browsing on ASOS for a funky jacket when I spotted this Jelly Pong Pong gift set for £10 – a saving of £21! This is my first dabble with Jelly Pong Pong. Do me a favour. Go to your other half or a nearby male and tell them you bought something from Jelly Pong Pong and see if they feel the need to repeat the name over and over. Just wondering. In the […]
You know Gordon Brown uses Guerlain Terracotta bronzer right? Despite this, Guerlain is one of my favourite old school luxury brands, one of the ones I used to coo over as a teen. From the Terracotta collection I hauled the Kajal Liner (LE) and the Kabuki Brush (LE). I can’t remember the exact prices – I believe it was £18 for the Kajal and £27 for the kabuki. The Kajal/Kohl liner is very pretty: The […]
Oooh my exciting parcel arrived! Three Cle De Peau Extra Silky Lipstick and blush: The blush didn’t swatch very well but it is lush on – blends dreamily, looks like a bronzer but also works as a blush as the colour is dewy, soft. This is 120, 121 and 122: The nicest lipstick in the WORLD, with a price tag to match. Will do proper swatches later but these seem pretty sheer to me. My […]
