The Bourjois bronzing powder was something that I had my eye on for years but never took the plunge to purchase until I visited the pop-up shop… and I am very glad I did.
I have never owned a matte bronzer and always wanted one for the purpose of contouring as well as adding a light touch of colour — and this product works perfectly for both.
I chose the lighter of the two shades, 51. The powder is fine, has a smooth texture and can be built up and applies easily. In the pan you can see flecks of glitter but this doesn’t transfer onto the skin and the powder looks more matte.
The bronzer comes in cute, sturdy packaging. It is known as the chocolate bronzer — well mainly because it has a picture of chocolate on the packaging — but also because the powder resembles a chocolate bar. It also has a subtle, sweet scent, which makes it feel like a much more luxurious product than the £4.99 price tag and with 16.5g of product I don’t see myself hitting pan on this quickly.
