Advantages: works well, lasts ages
Disadvantages: more expensive than most (but worth it)
==L'Oreal Glam Bronze Duo Powder==
I am terrible for picking up way to much make up and cosmetics and try to take advantage of the Boots discount card that I get entitling me to 10% off. Team this with the 3 for 2 offers that Boots usually has on their stock of make up ranges that it can often seem like a good bargain can be bought!
This L'Oreal Glam Bronze Duo Powder was actually something I needed at the time of buying (very rare occurrence) and I have to say that it is one of my more successful purchases of cosmetics as I really do like it and use it most days.
I often opt for bronzer rather than blusher as I prefer the brown colourings rather than the pink or peachy colours you get when buying a blusher. This bronzer appealed to me though because of the two different tones of bronzer that is encased in the packaging and working together would give a more natural colouring than perhaps the block colour of bronzer that I had been using previously.
The bronzer pack itself is not cheap but it has to be said that it does last for ages as I have had it many months now (possibly even a year) and it is still going strong. At £10.20 pence it is not the cheapest of this sort of product but working out how much it cost when it was on the 3 for 2 offer and with my 10% off it does bring it down to a very reasonable price.
The product weighs in at 9 grams but this is irrelevant as all you need know is that it lasts a very good amount of time. I chose the colour shades for blondes and there was also a dark one for people with more olive tones already. The two tones of blusher inside the packaging are a good mix with one shade being considerably paler than the other. Both have a slight shimmer to them to give that "just kissed by the sun" look.
The pack contains both a flat applicator brush and a mirror for application on the go. However I can say I use wither of these much as I usually only apply the bronzer in the morning as part of my makeup routine and don't feel the need to apply again as the bronzer will generally last all day and still look good.
I find applying the bronzer is easy and the two tones certainly create a gentle more natural looking colour than a solid block of bronzer does and it blends much more effectively without the need for any rubbing after it has been applied. The look of the product on the skin is light and fresh and really looks very good and like I say lasts a very good time too and unless I am going out of an evening I wouldn't need to put any more on.
All in all I have to say that even though this is probably priced a little higher than I would usually pay out for I feel it is certainly well worth it. With the special offer that it was on and using my discount card is it defiantly a product I will be buying again when I need to. It lasts for a long time not only on the face but the product itself and the final look of the bronzer on the skin is natural yet effective and for this reason I feel that this is another top product from L'Oreal and I can only award a top score of 5 out of 5 stars and give it a high recommendation!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
