      Review of Avon Bronzing Pearls

      **The Product**

      Available from Avon representatives or the Avon website, these bronzing pearls retail at around £10 for a 22g pot.

      The bronzing pearls are presented in a sturdy brown plastic pot, with a twist-off lid. The pearls are protected by a circular sponge and a plastic cover. The pearls themselves are a mixture of pink, brown and tan coloured pea sized pearls of compressed bronzing powder. Avon say that the pearls contain light-reflective pigments that help create a warm, healthy-looking glow.
      The pearls also have a lovely sweet scent.

      **How to Use**

      The pearls are designed to be applied with a brush to skin to give a healthy bronzed effect. I have found the pearls are easily broken if you are too heavy handed, but they do give a very good coverage. The depth of colour can be built up, but I would advise caution if users are fair skinned as it is very easy to overdo it! I have a fairly dark complexion, particularly during the summer months and I find these bronzing pearls give me a natural finish. They can be used over foundation and other make up; or on bare skin equally well.

      A quick swirl with a large make up brush over the temples, cheeks and bridge of the nose warms the skin tone, giving a natural, golden tone. A light dusting on the shoulders and decolletage gives a sun-kissed glow for evening use.

      **Availability and Price**

      Available only from Avon. Products can be ordered from Avon representatives or direct from the Avon website.
      There is only the one size available and the price is currently £6 as they are on special offer, the usual cost is £10. I have found that Avon often have special offers so it is worth watching for these.

      **My Thoughts and Conclusion**

      I really love this product!

      Avon Bronzing Pearls are very versatile, they can be used as a bronzer, as a blusher or even an eye-shadow. I have been using them for many years and although I have to admit that the pot doesn't look particularly attractive, it is a must have cosmetic in my opinion.

      Avon Bronzing Pearls are not too glittery or metallic as some bronzers I have tried have been. The glow is long lasting, it does not flake or fade easily and I have worn this all day with no need to touch up. These bronzing pearls do not dry out my skin and. Removal is simple, the bronzer whisks away with my facial wipes or cleanser.

      The pearls themselves are very long lasting, I have had my current pot for over a year and there are still lots left. Unlike some brands, I cannot see an advisory 'use by' time on the pot, however in fairness to Avon, as my pot is quite old and worn I cannot categorically say that the information is not given.
      As mentioned, my complexion is quite dark, even without a suntan, I find the bronzing pearls give me a little lift. They are easy to use, easy to blend and are an all round good product.

      I am awarding Avon Bronzing Pearls a 5* rating and highly recommend to others.
      Thank you for reading.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good buy overall

        Ive been buying Avon items since 2009 and my granny was an Avon lady in her day and I have to say their products very rarely disappoint. Typically this product comes in two shades "cool" which refers to fair skin and "warm" which refers to dark skin. Though in the festive season you can also get diamond sparkle pearls too though they just add a bit more of a sparkle to you face rather than a tint.

        Consistency

        They come in a little circular, plastic container filled with a medley of different shaded little balls that have a mat yet sparkly appearance. Using an angles or Kabuki brush which is sold separately I like to break up the beads a little to make a bit of powder and I definitely think it adds a nice colour to my face not tangoed or over the top. I use the Fair skin shade since I am so pale, I am so pale that whenever I share a bed or bedroom with one of my girlfriends that I usually get woken up by them in the middle of the night. This has happened at least 3 times in the last 5 years of my adult life so just to give you a picture of my complexion.

        Although I am being honest here I only wear make up on very special occasions for example dates, going out for dinner or going to see a show for example I still haven't got anywhere near the end of the pot a friend of mine who has been using the darker skin version who bought it at the same time I did and uses it a lot more still has not found the need to buy a new one as she agrees they last for ages. Her main complaint however was that her lid was rather flimsy and broke in two so she is now using an application sponge/pad to keep the contents of hers in which maybe isn't so great but then again she has had it for over two years. The pearls haven't really degraded that much either.

        Price

        The pots themselves at full price are £10 though quite frequently if you wait for the offer to return you can get them for between £4-£8 if you have patience which seems a lot better value compared to some other brands I have seen in the high street in recent years. The brushes I like to use are usually £6/£7 each too though again if you are patient enough you can get them half price or maybe buy one get one free or another item half off. If you are happy to wait maybe 2 or three campaigns the offer usually does a full circle.

        The product is available online or via a brochure supplied by your Avon sales representative.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A nice product, simple but gives good results

        I received these Avon bronzing pearls as a gift. I don't really buy Avon products just because an Avon lady doesn't deliver to my house, if there was one then I'm sure I would buy from them. I love looking through the catalogue and ordering things, I also think they do great sales and are good value for money in general.

        My Avon bronzing pearls came in a round, black tub. It's quite large and it's definitely a lot bigger than the bronzers you can get in the makeup section at Boots and Superdrug etc. This is great because it means it should last longer. The shiny black container these come in is pretty simple, it has 'Avon' carved into the lid and it looks quite sleek and sophisticated. When you open the tub, you see a white, round sponge which is the same size in diamater as the pot and fits snugly inside. This is a really good thing because it means the applicator is there with the bronzer, ready to use. It also keeps things tidy and neat and it's great for if I'm carrying this in my bag.

        Under the sponge are the bronzing pearls, they are a golden, bronze colour. Basically they are little 'pearls' or balls of bronzer all contained in the pot to apply with the sponge. I think having the bronzer in pearls gives a more natural look because the sponge doesn't pick up as much colour.

        I have used both the sponge and my own bronzer/blusher brush with this. I find that the sponge is good to apply this to my cheeks or anywhere else really, I usually fold the sponge a bit though as it is quite big. I think using a brush is better to more precise application and I've also used an eyeshadow brush to apply this to my eyelids which is also a nice look. I would call these bronzing pearls multi-purpose because it looks great on your face, eyes and body when you want to look more tanned. These aren't orange or too dark but even with a dark tan they do add a nice glow. This does have a shimmer to it which isn't for everyone, some non-shimmery light bronzers can be applied all over the face but I probably wouldn't do that with this because I wouldn't want a completely shimmery face.

        I find these easy to apply and they have a very silky and smooth texture. I think that these add a nice, healthy glow to the skin and a bit of colour. They aren't orange or too unnatural looking but you can build the colour up for a darker or more dramatic look. I love how simple these are to use and they give a golden to bronze colour to the skin. I also like to use them as an eyeshadow and I think the colour really suits my dark eyes. It's also easy to blend and has quite good staying power, it doesn't wear off too quickly but it's easy to remove. It does tend to fade a bit throughout the day but not overly so.

        I'd recommend these to someone who is looking for a new bronze which gives quite a natural look.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great little buy from Avon

        I have owned Avon glow bronzing pearls for over a year now and am still using them on a daily basis so needless to say i am pretty satisfied with this purchase!

        *DESCRIPTION

        This bronzing beauty product comes in the form of small round balls known as 'pearls'. There are two choice of shades available, Cool or Warm. I have the Cool shade as i was concerned about looking too orange and not naturally tanned, i have found it perfect for me and i think the warm shade would be great too, next on my list! Within each pot, there are three shades of pearls which all blend together and combine when you rub your brush over to create one of the two shades with a shimmery finish.


        *PACKAGING/PRICE

        Avon retail this 22g pot at £10 normally, though bear in mind they often have offers and i purchased them for £5, though they have lasted a long time and i believe worth the original retail price.

        The brown round pot comes in a box at first, though i normally always throw away outer packaging. Within the pot there is a sponge, i don't believe that this is made for use but instead to keep the pearls in place in the pot which helps prevent breakage.


        *PRODUCT

        I use a chunky brush made for the use of bronzing and highlighting the face, i wouldn't recommend using a small brush as i think the pearls work better when rubbed with a large brush for purpose.

        I would highly recommend these bronzing pearls for their subtle luminating affect and they also have a sweet smell, which at first i found unusual for a makeup product but i now very much like it.

        I simply sweep my chunky brush over the higher areas of my face eg, cheeks, nose, forehead and chin (parts that would catch the sun) after a dip in this pot and sometimes top up once throughout the day. The product is gentle and subtle and lasts reasonably well.


        *SUMMARY

        This pearls were an unexpected find from Avon having not owned many of their makeup products i was impressed! I was happy to purchase them at £5 and now i know how long they last would pay the full price of £10 and would also try the darker warm shade

        WORD OF WARNING!

        They run away! You at some point drop one or it gets stuck in the brush, just made sure you pick it up as you dont want these crushed into your carpet..!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Excellant value for money

        I had seen these pearls around for a while but due to the price £8/£9 I always refused to buy them as I feel that it is an expensive item I could live without. When Avon had them on offer for £5 I decided to bite the bullet and give them a run for their money.

        I don't like or use fake tan, I have never been keen on the orange glow look, so avoid using that. I have used moisturisers with fake tan in them but found them not very good. I am fair skinned so couldn't go over board with any kind of tanning idea as it would be more than obvious that I have used some enhancement to gain the result. Pearls I thought would be a good substitute, I have to admit I have used these pearls all year round to just give that colour glow rather than an all over orange twang.

        They come in a maroon tub with a circular sponge included. I don't use the sponge itself as I do find that they tend to cake the colour on. I use brushes as it gives a lighter and more even coverage. I bought a handle less brush from Avon and use that which is perfect. Within the pot (there are three different versions of the bronzing pearls to choose from) there are three different colour balls, the balls themselves are pressed powder, shiny in appearance and a soft smooth texture. You have a mixture of light, medium and dark coloured balls, which when used give you a multi-tonal colour application. This way you don't have to choose one colour to match your skin tone perfectly, the three colours mix to create a tone suitable for many different skin types and shades.

        I am a complete convert now, I held off buying these because of the price, but the tub you get never seems to go down. They last a long time (depending on usage) I use mine a couple of times a week, I don't wear it every day, and have had it for around 5 months. They are still going strong, so even at £8 the value for money is very good. I just wish I had bought them before.

        I have dropped the pot, before having the chance to put the lid on properly and they made a bit of a mess, luckily they fell into an empty sink so the clean up wasnt that bad. The lid could be a bit firmer to put on, its a bit weak at holding together.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Gives a great sun kissed look that lasts all day.

        Arabian glow bronzing pearls from Avon is one of the few beauty products I buy again and again as I have yet to find another that is as good.

        The product comes in a round plastic pot that contains 22g. Inside the pot there is a round sponge that keeps the pearls in place so they don't get shaken about in the pot and fall apart if you carry them around in your handbag, therefore they last longer. I currently have over half left and I last purchased this product about four months ago, although I don't use it every day. The pot it's self arrives in a small cardboard box.

        The pearls are about pea size and come in three shades;

        * Pale pink/peach.
        * Pink.
        * Pink/pale brown.

        I use this bronzer after applying foundation, I use a large dusting brush and start by applying a light dusting all over my face, neck and shoulders to give a nice glow, I then apply again over my forehead, nose and cheeks and depending on the season I may build up a bit more colour on my cheeks.

        I have fair skin and find this is a perfect product for me as you can build up the colour to suite every skin tone. The Avon web site states that it has light-reflective pigments that help create a warm, healthy looking glow, which is an accurate statement, I find that it leaves a slight shimmer/glittery look to my skin.

        The only down side I can find with this product is that when using it you have to be careful not to spill the pearls which can be easier said than done, as I find they seem to hide in the brush then fall on the floor or your clothes and if you don't spot them they can be trodden into carpets or rubbed into clothes, although this is the same with most if not all bronzing pearls I have used.

        These pearls currently retail on the Avon web site for £4.50 as they are on sale, there usual price is £9.00.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          would recommend, especially for people with pale skin like me!

          Arabian Glow Bronzing Pearls

          As summer has arrived, I am sure that most girls want to look nice and tanned, I mean who doesn't? I have always wanted to be tanned, but I am very fair skinned, and even when I go on holiday I don't get that much of a tan. I decided that this summer, I was going to do something about my pale skin, so as my monthly Avon brochure arrived, and I was flicking through the pages, Avon's Bronzing Peals caught my eye! I got them for £9.00, but most Avon products go on sale after a while, and I now think they are around £5.00, which is a very good price. Also these pearls will last you ages, longer then a powder one will, (unless you drop them of course!) but seriously I have heard that these pearls will last you years, so if you think about it £9.00 is a very good price!

          So what even is a bronzer? A bronzer can be in powder form, like a blusher, or it can come in pearls - like the one I am reviewing. And you apply it to your face where the sun would normally hit you, to give you a nice tanned look! I applied this bronzer after applying my foundation and a power foundation, all though you can just apply it straight to your face if you want. Avon claims that this bronzer 'helps create a warm, healthy looking glow.' They also say to use a dusting brush with this bronzer.

          The bronzing pearls come in a small golden round pot, with the words 'AVON' on top. The picture on dooyoo of the red pot must be the old type of pot for the bronzing pearls, as it doesn't look like that anymore. To open the pot, you simply just twist off the lid and there is a thick white sponge inside the pot, I don't think the sponge is put in there to use to apply the bronzer with, I think it is just there to protect the pearls from falling out when you open the lid. However I just threw the sponge away! After you lift up the sponge, you will see the pearls, I was actually very surprised as I thought there would be a lot more pearls inside the pot as the pot looked quite big, I think there is around 140 pearls in the pot, (that is just an estimate) although that sounds like a lot of pearls, they are actually quite small, and it doesn't look like a lot in the pot. The pearls come in 3 different shades, there is a lighter bronze colour, then a medium one, and then a bit of a darker one. The bronzing pearls don't really smell of much, so when it is applied to your face, your face wont smell.

          To apply this bronzer I actually bought a new brush, I bought a really big face and body no 7 brush, as I heard this was a good brush to apply bronzer with. You can also use other brushes such as Kabuki brushes, which you can find in most places such as Boots. When applying bronzer, your meant to apply it to places where the sun hits your face, such as your cheeks, nose and forehead. So what I did was I dabbed my brush into the bronzing pearls, and then tapped off any excess bronzer. I then started with my forehead, I did light strokes across my forehead, then I did the same working down my nose, and then I gathered a little bit more bronzer and did light strokes across my cheeks. I would start by applying only a little bit of bronzer, and then gradually building it up by applying more bronzer until you get the bronzed look you want, as you don't want to over do it and start looking like a tangerine! You can get any look you want from this bronzer, from just a light sun kissed look to a tanned goddess! The bronzer went on my brush fairly easily, and left the brush onto my face easily too, so I didn't have any problems with that. You can even apply this bronzer to your neck and chest as well if you want so that you can look tanned there as well.

          I was very happy with the results of this bronzer, my face looked like I had spent a day in the sun! It gave my face a nice glowing bronzed look, without me looking like an oompa loompa or 'dirty' which some bronzers make you look like! The colour of the bronzer matched my fair skin perfectly, as I've already said, it wasn't too orange for my skin colour. For some people who have darker skin, this bronzer might not have been dark enough for them, but for me it was perfect. I think the 3 different shades of the bronzing pearls when mixed together on your face, gives you the perfect shade. I also noticed that my forehead had a shimmering look to it. I never really like products that make you look sparkly or anything like that, but this was very natural, and you could hardly see it. It just made your face look more sun kissed and tanned, which I liked a lot. This bronzer lasts quite a long time on your face, but after a while, it does need a bit of a touch up. This product is something you can wear everyday without looking over the top.

          I would defiantly recommend to anyone, especially pale people like me, to buy these bronzing pearls. I have never actually used bronzer before until now, but I found it very easy to use, and I had no problems with it. It didn't make me look orange at all. Now instead of my face looking pale, I can now have a healthy sun kissed glow this summer! Defiantly a make up bag essential!

            Disadvantages

            Great idea Avon!

            You may have noticed that i like Avon products, and this is another one that i love!
            I brought this for £8 quite a few years ago and use it daily, on my cheekbones to give my face more of a natural glow.
            When this arrived, the packaging is a medium sized tan coloured pot, and when they come they have sponge on top of the pearls. There is 3 different coloured hues of pearls that combine to give you a natural looking glow, and make you look sunkissed and not over the top and orange.
            I apply these with a brush, and the best thing about it is that they never seem to go down, and you wouldnt have to buy more than 2 a year.
            The only problem that i have come across is due to my own clumsyness. One time, as i was screwing the lid back on top of the pot i dropped them all over my white carpet, causing a bit of a disaster and making me spend alot of time picking the back up and then cleaning the carpet. Unfortunately i missed one, which got trod on byy me and left a small stain before i removed it with a vanish product
            Id recommend this to anyone, just dont drop it!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            great value

            After applying my foundation and powder I always add bronzer to my cheeks, chin and forehead to give my skin a naturally looking glow. I have used Avon for just over four years now and I have liked most of the products I have purchased from there.

            I was left in a little dilemma as I had been struggling to find a bronzer that doesn't look streaky when I have applied it over my setting powder so I decided to have a look through the avon brochure that had arrived that day as I was always left fairly satisfied with avons
            cosmetics and skin care.

            The packaging is fairly simple it comes in a bronzed plastic case. It looks fairly cheap and definitely doesn't look as glamorous as the products from the likes of Chanel and Dior, I definitely think they could improve the packaging and be a little creative instead of plonking it into a plastic jar and adding the logo onto the top of it. Far too simple for my liking.

            There is a sponge on top of the pearls to possibly protect them from coming out when you open the container, if this is the purpose then its definitely a good idea as it seems to do the trick.

            I usually start by brushing my bronzer brush onto the pearls and then apply on my cheek bones, chin and forehead using circular motions to blend it in. The bronzer doesn't look blotchy and blends perfectly so it doesn't look streaky or cheap looking like some bronzers do.

            The bronzing pearls come in three shades from light medium to dark which means you get a good combination of beiges to make the perfect bronzed shade. I love the idea of using three different colours instead of just one because then you can decide what colour you are aiming for on that particular day. If you want to go a bit darker you may decide to blend the darker pearls and so on.

            The bronzing pearls cost £4 and they last for years. I am not just exaggerating this my friends have had pots of these pearls for years and years and they are still round and look perfectly fine on the skin. However it is not recommended to keep make-up for this long as it is not very hygienic but still I guess at least its lasted a long time instead of running out after a month or so.

            The bronzing pearls are quite strong which is probably the reason my friends have had theres for so long. They can be carried in your handbag bashed about wherever you go and they will still be a solid pearl shape, this probably could be the sponge that protects them from crushing. If avon want to make more money they should ditch the sponge and then they would crush which means people would be buying more of these pots! Just don't tell avon that because the sponges are a great idea and I definitely don't want to keep spending my hard earned money on bronzing pots because the pearls keep smashing.

            Overall, I really like the Avon bronzing pearls, they last a long time and they give a gorgeous natural glow. You can build the colour up so one day you can have a nice golden natural glow and another you can be a bit more darker and more noticeable.

              Fab product which are suitable for day or night!

              I very often buy Avon products but I was always hooked on 17 bronzing pearls. However, while I was quite skint I saw these on offer in the Avon brochure for £5 (proper price £8). I decided to give them ago.

              When they arrived they were in a square box and I took them out to find a deep pot with three different shades of pearls in. My inital reaction was that because the pot was quite deep there was less chance of a pesky pearl escaping and being trodden into my white carpet! So far I have been proved right and I think this is one of the major benefits of the product. The pot is a really good size.

              Having tried the pearls I decided that the colour was really nice and they gave an excellent colour without feeling too heavy on my face or particularly powdery!

              I have used them in a variety of ways. They give a good all over colour or they give a good definition to cheek bones. Also, I have found they give a nice highlight to my shoulders etc.

              These bronzing pearls don't have the funny glitter in that some do which makes them much more suitable for the day than a lot of other products. They are often on offer in the brochure so that they are a really reasonable price

              Avon Bronzing Pearls

              I hate the orange look of fake tan and think sun beds should be banned but I am very pale so was looking for something to help me get a bit of colour on my face. My mate gave me a half used pot of Avon bronzing pearls to try and they are so good that I've started buying them all the time now.

              The bronzing pearls are little balls of powder and each tub has 3 different colours all mixed in and they are light, medium and dark.

              You use a large dusting brush to apply the colour and they all mix together to give a natural tanned look.

              I like them because even on my pale skin they look natural and its easy to get just the right amount on the brush to suit any skin tone. My mum has much darker skin than me and she tans easily but the same bronzing pearls work well for both of us.

              They are easy to use cos I just keep them in the pot and use the brush straight from the pot. Then when I have put the lid on they keep good until the next time I want to use them.

              I don't use it all over my face just on my cheekbones and forehead then I might sweep a bit along my nose and on my chin like it says in the Avon book. I like it because it gives my face a shimmery look and makes me look like i've got a tan when really I haven't.

              The bronzing pearls cost £8.50 but one pot lasts about 4 months so that's good.

              Better get the Avon book out! Well worth having

              I'm still fairly undecided about Avon as an brand, I have ordered some things, such as Moisturisers, Nail Polish and Necklaces, pretty much products I knew would work for me and would suit my skin, I've never brought any Foundations or Lip Glosses, just incase they didn't suit me or I didn't like them, I love to try on make up before I buy, to check. But flicking through the Avon book, in January, I came across Avon Bronzing Pearls, and I've never seen any bronzing product like this before, so I thought I'd take the risk, and buy it anyway. Only recently, I've actually tired it though, so I thought I'd share my experience.

              The product consists of a pot, with small Bronzer pearls in, and comes with a small sponge, which you use to apply the Bronzer. The sponge is pretty soft, but it does hold the Bronzer from the pearls really well. Also the sponge is fairly large, so it makes it easier to apply, and can get a good bronze effect by only a couple of dustings of the sponge on to the desired area, therefore this product would last quite a while. But it can be difficult to apply to smaller areas, such as eyes, as the sponge is quite large, but is using a smaller brush with allow you to use your Bronzer on other, more smaller areas.

              The Bronzer made my skin look, well, bronzed obviously, but a natural kind of Bronzed, in fact no one really noticed I had Bronzer on, they just thought my cheeks were naturally sun-kissed. The Bronzer seemed to blend very well with my natural skin colour (well, my foundation..) and also made my cheeks have a healthy glow and colour to them, un like some bronzers which can actually make me look orange or make my cheeks stand out a mile, because they look completely different to my skin, but Avon's Bronzed Pearls could be blended very well with my hand and also the Bronzer sponge. I personally, used Avon Bronzing Pearls with my normal make up, but made sure my make up was too strong, other wise it looks really horrible and fake, so I quickly slap of some Foundation and Lip Gloss, and I look natural and sun kissed, like I've been to Spain (I wish!)

              Avon Bronzing Pearls are only available at Avon, through your local Avon person or online, and costs between 5-7 pounds, but may be cheaper as Avon have a lot of offers running and sales.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                A good pot of shimmering pearls to give a warmer glow to your cheeks

                **Avon Bronzing Pearls**

                After doing my little stint as an Avon Rep when I worked in an office a few years ago I got hooked on certain products. I got attached in particular to certain make up products and still buy them today. One of those products is Avon Arabian Glow Bronzing Pearls.

                The Arabian Glow Bronzing pearls are made up of light reflective pigments to give you that glow which should be warm and rosy. You are meant to apply with a dusting brush or the pot comes with its own little dusting sponge too.


                **Pearls and Packaging**

                The pot is 22grams in size and surprisingly golden bronze in colour. It is a good size jar and has a twisty top which tightens and unscrews easy enough. The label is etched on as an A on the front and on the base of the pot in many languages you are told what you get and that you should use within 24 months.

                When you open up the pot you get a circular round sponge which is about an inch thick and over 2 inches in diameter. It feels quite spongy and squidgy but it is surprisingly soft when you use it to apply the pearls.

                There are lots of pearls in the pot in 3 or so different shades from dark bronze to bronze and light bronze which together gives the nice combination of bronze for your skin tone. The pearls themselves feel quite hard but do break in your fingers if squeezed and gives a nice rich colour. They don't feel too creamy but a mixture between a cream and powder.


                **Applying**

                I put my foundation on first before applying the pearls. I also find that it is better to them in the winter to give a bit more of a glow rather than in the summer when my skin catches the odd rays. I apply using the sponge that came with the pot rather than a dusting brush. I find that it soaks up the pearls well and then on application is not too heavy. I sweep it right up the cheekbone and then use the sponge in a circular motion to settle the pearls into the cheeks.


                The result is that you do get more of a depth of colour in your cheeks that shimmers and it has a slight glittery effect too. It adds warmth to your skin and takes away the paleness that mine has.


                **Cost**

                They cost around £5 though when they do offers you can get more money off than that. You can purchase them through the catalogue and your local Avon rep or through Avon's online website.


                **Recommend**

                I am pleased with the Avon pearls as they aren't expensive at under £5 a pot which does last a long time. I don't use them all the time and find you don't need much on the sponge to go far. It doesn't look overkill either but nice and warm and glowy. It is a good essential for your make up kit to have. I would rate them 5 stars as they are cheap enough and good quality and give a long lasting result that isn't too heavy.

                  Amazing bargain, every girl should own these.

                  Im constantly seeing Avon adverts on the TV but I have an old fashioned stigma attached to the brand that it is old ladies who buy product from a make up catalogue. My Mum gets the catalogue passed round at her work and bought me some of these for my birthday. Shade name Arabian Glow.

                  I have tried many blushers in the pas but could never seem to get the shade right for my pale skin. It was either too red, too harsh to too orange. These bronzing pearls seem to suit the skin tone of everyone I have known that have tried them and that includes people with a real variety of skin tones.

                  The product comes in a square golden brown coloured box with the description on the front. Whne you open the box you get a golden brown tub with a screw lid. The tub has avon written on it in white writing. The ingredients used are listed on the bottom of the pot, for those who have allergies or specific requirements.

                  When yu unscrew the lid (which opens nice and easily) there is a circular piece of foam used for packing, which is very useful as it keeps the balls in there nice and tight, and stops them hitting against each other, therefore I would recommend keeping this foam for the duration of the product.

                  When you lift off the foam you se three colours of balls all mixed in together. Combined they create a soft almost natural looking glow. I would recommend using a big blusher brush to mix up the colours and blend well. I have had no skin sensitivity issues with this product. It lasts about six hours and washes off easily when necessary. Superb value for money. I use daily and the pot lasts me a year!!

                  Excellent value, great quality product

                  Many people I know are huge fans of AVON bronzing pearls, but for me they do not provide a dark enough colour for my skin.

                  That aside, they are reasonably priced around £8, but are often in AVON deals such as 2 for £9 so really good value.

                  You get around 30 pearls in the plastic pot, which range in colour from a light cream, mid-orange all the way down to a tan colour. The problem I found was that the brush picks up too much of the light coloured pearls and not enough of the dark (there are more light pearls than dark). I prefer the pressed powder for a darker colour but I think this would suit most skin tones as I have fairly deep coloured skin (olivey).

                  The pearls are of good size and the brush definitely picks up the power on them. Some other makes just tend to get greasy and not pick up the colour, the AVON ones are powdery to the end.
