Who doesn’t like a multi use product? This Bronze Shimmer Palette is a brilliant high shine powder combination that can be used anywhere on the body. I loved mixing all the colours together and applying it to my decolletage and collar bone. But my favourite application of this palette was individually on my eyes. The high shine of the powder gave the most beautiful finish.
I wore only these colours on my eyes for a wedding recently and I have never received so many comments from other women who all wanted to know what brand I was using. I guess that is the best review of a product one could have. The brush that comes with the product is too coarse and small to be effective, so use a large powder brush for the larger areas of the body and a smaller blending brush for the eyes. At this price the product is a must have for your summer makeup bag.
This compact is elegant, slim and easy to fit in any handbag. Great for touch ups during the day. Firstly, I found the brush a bit harsh on the powder. But then when I started using it and knew how to manage it without damaging the powder I found it easy to use. The size of the brush actually allows you to choose the colour or the square you want to use each time if you decide not to blend all 4 shades together. It is fantastic product, it helps to transfer any look into glamorous one without much effort.
The colours are absolutely fantastic and easy to blend with any skin tone either to use as blusher, highlighter or eye shadow. The powder is very fine quality; I like the fact that it does not contain big pieces of glitters. It has a silky finish to it and is easy to correct any mistake you could make. It works great over blusher, (brightens dull dark blushers as well) or just on the cheek bones on its own for highlighting. I love having this finishing product in my make up kit. It is a multi purpose product with a great effect. 4.5 Stars
Easy-to-use, neutral colours with a beautiful shimmer. Wonderfully smooth texture. Packaging wise, a good slim case which won’t take up space in the handbag. Using my fingers to apply, the powder went on very silkily and felt so smooth on my skin. It was easy to blend on my cheeks and eyelids. However I was not a fan of the brush – it felt stiff and didn’t work so well on my cheeks (I had to use my fingers to finish the blending). Also when I swirled the brush around the powder, it made chunks of the powder loose and made a mess of the compact!
When I tried using my own blush brush, again chunks of powder became loose – seemingly a function of the “looseness” of the powder itself. The colours are fantastic – all four shades are very versatile, also great when combined together. Beautiful as a cheek highlighter and as eye-shadow. I found the colours very suitable for my Asian skin. Also perfectly subtle – didn’t make my face look greasy or shine in the dark! It has no smell and I love the texture – so smooth on the skin. I would give this 4 Stars – the letdowns were the brush and how easy it is to mess up the compact!
A very nice looking compact with four colour pallets and a wide application brush. This product can be used alone as individual colours for eyes or blended to highlight the cheeks. It was very easy to apply and had a soft silky feel. The colour blends are beautiful and natural looking, to use as single colours for eyes or blend all four to create a beautiful soft glow to face and decolletage. The texture was silky smooth and just glides on the skin. Product smell is neutral. This is a beautiful product that gives nice results, I would definitely purchase in the future. I would rate this product 4 Stars.
For a cheaper brand the packaging is well made and the colours of the actual bronzer are gorgeous. Using it as a blush, I found the application a little tricky. I got some bronze stripes on my cheeks and had to blend in the colour with my fingers. With practice I’m sure this wouldn’t be a problem. The colour is very subtle compared to other similar products. For someone with very fair skin, this is a good thing.
The shimmer is pretty, but I found I like it more when I wiped some of the product off so it wasn’t quite so sparkly. The powder is almost odourless and has a very velvety texture. I probably wouldn’t purchase this for myself. As a fair skinned person who has previously tried lots of fake tanning products, I now feel much more comfortable and attractive making the most of my pale skin. I don’t really like shimmery finishes on my face. 3 Stars
This Bronze Shimmer came in attractive packaging, although because I’m fair I wondered if there was enough colour to bronze me. The brush provided was soft however not effective. I tried one of my good brushes although the looseness of the product made it very hard to control. A big fat brush is the way to go used sparingly. The product became extremely loose and dusty after the first application. There is no smell to this product. The product has far too much shimmer and the colours don’t have enough pigment to be an effective bronzer however the product is more of a highlighter/shimmer dust, than a bronzer. 2 Stars
