“ Brand: Rimmel / Type: Bronzing Powder / Subcategory: Bronzer / What it does: Bronzes, „
I am fairly new to bronzing and the whole 'contouring' but because I love the rest of Rimmels match perfection range I decided to give this a go. I love the foundation and powder however I disliked the blush. This for me had the same problems as the match perfection blush.
I liked that it had a combination of two colours in there, so I could possibly find the right colour that would match my pale complexion. Also the packaging is a simple pull on and off lid which like me most people won't like as it is not well protected. For someone who travels alot this isn't ideal.
~~~The product itself~~~
First of all the colour payoff is dreadful. If i really rub my finger into the pan I will eventually get a good amount of product on my finger. So as you can imagine when I swirl the two together with my brush I end up feeling like I am applying nothing to my face. If i do get anything it looks like my face is dirty and it doesn;t suit me at all. It looks pretty orangy and I really do not get on with it at all.
There is a small amount of glitter in there, but not a lot compared to other bronzers. Therefore it is not completely matte but it will give you a hint of shimmer. Unlike the blush however, it isn't chalky in texture and when you swirl the brush around in the pan it doesn't kick up a lot of product. Therefore you are wasting less but i don't think much is going on the brush in the first place!!
I cannot comment on the product lasting as I removed the product straight after applying because I thought I looked ridiculous and I haven't actually been brave enough to go out in public with it on and I am probably very unlikely to as well. For £5.99 I am very disappointed with this product as I think this is quite a lot considering its quality.
I am going to buy a new brush and see if that makes a difference to my application but at the moment I definitely think there are better products out there for the money and I wouldn't recommend spending your time on this one. The only time I can see myself using this is if I get a tan and I can use it as a bit of a powder. In conclusion it is way too orange for me
