Hey there my favourite humans!
Today I am bringing you a short and sweet review on a little bronzer – that just so happens to be shaped like a chocolate bar! How awesome is that?! I’ve noticed a trend from makeup brands coming out with chocolate themed bronzers. I mean even too faced do it, I wonder if that’s a coincidence.
Anywho, I’m going off topic. Why don’t I shush myself and jump right into this review?!
Is it too orange or muddy? No. As the name said it’s somewhere in between the shade of milk chocolate yet not too muddy – it’s definitely a neutral brown shade.
Is it easy to blend? This bronzer is super blendable and buttery. It isn’t chalky or gives a lot of fall out. It definitely a has a cream vibe to it even though it’s a powder.
Natural or intense? I’d say this bronzer is somewhere in the middle. It’s not particularly naturally for me because I am fair skinned but on someone rocking a deeper skin tone, this perhaps wouldn’t be as intense. Its pigmentation shows it to be super intense however with a brush that does dilute the pigmentation slightly.
Pigmentation: This bronzer is very pigmented, in fact, many times I can easily contour with this shade as well. It’s definitely not sheer.
Does it work well on fair skinned?: It does but the fairer your skin is the more of a contoured look it will give.
Can you contour with it or is it just for bronzing up? I can do a fairly subtle contour with this bronzer of the brush I use is on the dense side. If I use a more fluffy brush (with a light hand), it can look like more of a bronze.
Lasting power? It lasts the standard type a powder bronzer will last. It doesn’t have any special lasting capabilities but it doesn’t disappear too quickly – at least on my skin.
Price: $23 AUD, It’s roughly $19.18 AUD on Feel unique
Packaging: It comes in a cardboard-like packaging, designed to look like a chocolate bar and on the inside is the pressed bronzer in the shape of a chocolate bar.
Finish: The bronzer is a matte finish
Pros: Pigmented, buttery, blendable, a lovely shade (not orange or muddy), very pigmented, you can get a bronzed look or a contoured look with it
Cons: It doesn’t have a sheer formula, it’s on the opaque side. I find the bronzers I reach for more are more sheer and buildable – so it doesn’t have that going for it. Also, it’s not a particularly cheap bronzer
Shade range: Just the one shade – Bourjois does have another product which is half of this bronzer and half a matte beige/white highlighter.
Overall thoughts: I do enjoy this bronzer quite a lot. It’s easy to work with and looks really good on the skin. I find that I use it to contour more than bronze but nevertheless, it’s an awesome product. And who doesn’t love makeup shaped like chocolate because I sure do
Would I repurchase it?: I’m on the fence with this. I wouldn’t repurchase it straight away but I like it enough to consider it. I have plenty of time considering I haven’t even made a dent in this bronzer despite how long I’ve had it now.
And that wraps up this review! Have you guys tried this bronzer or anything from Bourjois lately? What bronzers have you been loving? Drop a comment and let’s get chatting! I hope you all have a great day, I love ya peeps and I’ll see you all in the next post.
