~*~*~ Arabian Glow Pressed Powder ~*~*~
Being a regular buyer of Avon products I recently purchased this bronzer - Arabian Glow Pressed Powder.
It comes in 2 different shades
I have it in Deep Bronze. I choose the darker shade as I didn't really was a shimmering bronzer. I have in the past bought the shimmering bronze and have purchased other shimmering bronzers which are great for going out for a drink when you want to glam up a bit more but I don't really find them suitable for me for everyday wear.
I am naturally a blonde who is quite fair skinned and I don't really like being pale so I do like to use bronzers and fake tans to give me a bit of colour.
I saw this in the Avon brochure on offer just before Christmas for about £4 and as I was running low on my usual bronzer decided to add it to my order. The colour looks really nice in the brochure and when it did come I was shocked by how dark it actually looked!
When my Avon rep brought my order as always I was eager to open the bag and see what I had acctually purchased, this came in a little golden coloured cardboard box, opening it I was happy to see a little gold coloured compact with a nice flip top lid, it has a little button push thingy to open it which I think is quite nice compared to other where the lid just comes off... especially in your make-up bag, breaking the bronzer and making a massive mess!
It comes with a little spongy type applicator.... use a brush it's better!
Opening up the compact (like I have previously mentioned) I was shocked by just how dark this bronzer was, I used the applicator and brushed a little on cheek and it looked like I had rubbed dirt in my face! But then I grabbed my large blusher brush and swirled it over the bronzer and used this to apply the make-up to my face and it looked fab.
I tend not to use foundation just a bronzer as my complexion is pretty good so I use this alone and it adds a nice natural colour and as there is no shimmer to it it does look great.
I use this every day and so far I haven't noticed it going down at all, you really only need a little of the product as it does go a long way so I think it will last ages.
It has a usual retail price of £7.50 but grab it when it's on offer for £5 or under and you have a bargain. It lasts all day when applied and doesn't feel heavy on your face.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: Brilliant bronzing on a budget.
