Bronze the World…

Bronze the World…

When I think of Bronzer Sunsets pop into my head!

I’m going to admit I wasn’t always a fan of bronzer. I know what you’re thinking "what is this girl on!" Well it was just because I’m very worried about make up lines and Blending took far too long in the morning on the way to work. But my world changed a few years ago, maybe 3 who can tell at this point my mind is slowly going ;)

Anyway a few years back I discovered Dallas. Not Dallas Texas but Dallas Benefit Bronzer. I fell in love and with time I started trying new ones although I do tend to go back to Dallas ;)

It gives me such a warm and sun-kissed glow on my cheeks and I look like I've been back from a great vacation on the beach! Dallas is expensive but if used right will last you up to a year. A great investment I think.

Some of the other bronzers I’ve tried and tested and loved are One hot Minute also by Benefit. I loved the glow and shine effect and it went on smooth and lovely on my cheeks. I generally would only apply it once in the morning and not have to reapply it again all day which I love in a product. There is one small draw back to this product and that the tin. It can go everywhere if you’re not careful. Turn it the wrong way and open it and the powder can go all over your clothes or work tops. I’m very careful when opening mine and what I do is put a little on a tissue and then dip my brush into the tissue and it works perfect for me.

Gosh Giant Sun Poweder Bronzing - for fresh tanned look all year round. Give your skin exactly the kind of candor, after what you want. You can apply to entire face, or to refresh their cheeks. I have to say I felt this was a little dark until I got a little tan then it was ok. But for €19.99 I don’t it’s worth it when you might use it a few times year. I gave it to a friend who is a lot darker then me and she loves it.

I'm always on the look out for new and exciting Bronzer tell me what your Favourite one is?
