The Product = = = = = = the product is made by Rimmel and is a bronzing compact powder that adds soft, luminous quality to the skin with a Matte finish. The powder is ideal for an instant natural sun kissed look or to enhance an existing tan. Although I wear foundation I like my skin to look slightly sun kissed to tend to apply some bronzing powder to my face. I won't want to end up with an orange face but I do some a slight glow and some colour. I am currently using some bronzing rocks but I find this doesn't really give my face much colour but only a slight shimmery look which I don't always like as I feel as though it's slightly too sparkly for during the ...

I'm a big fan of bronzer, partly because I look horrible when I'm pale and partly because I don't like using foundation, I much prefer to just have a sweep of colour over my face instead of applying something that feels like it is clogging my pores! It's just personal preference however and I know that many people use bronzer as well as foundation. I normally use a Barry M bronzer for every day use which is a really subtle and natural looking colour but in the summertime I tend to prefer something with a bit more 'oomph'! I have always liked Rimmels's sun shimmer cream for the body so I tried this bronzer first a few years ago and still stick with it now. I ... Read the complete review

I bought this sun shimmer bronzer a while ago after I stupidly dropped my bronzer and it cracked into a million tiny fragments. I don't tend to wear bronzer all that much because I have pale freckly skin and it looks a little Nicola Roberts circa 2005. I do find though it is a useful cosmetic to own for those brief days of sun we get and for holidays. Because I get through it so slowly, using it infrequently, I don't tend to opt for an expensive brand as it's only an occasional item. This also means that if I lose it or break it, both of which are likely, then it won't matter all that much because it was cheap and can be easily replaced. The ... Read the complete review

This bronzer is truly amazing... I came across this a few months ago whilst I was in Tesco, as we were coming out of the Summer months it was reduced to £2.00 which I thought was amazing for a bronzer being as though the last one I bought was Chanel and I paid £30.00 for that so I thought I would give it a go and see what the comparison would be like. So I tried this product...I will keep buying this until it goes obsolete!! I have the large version, the shimmering maxi bronzer which has been brilliant. I apply the colour to my cheek bones where blusher would normally go , and because I have olive skin , this looks perfect. It does not blotch or ... Read the complete review

When it comes to bronzing powders they are something that I dabble with from time to time. I am really very pale skinned indeed so have to be really careful when it comes to such products and there are a couple of powder bronzers in my make up collection that I tend to stick to and use all the time. However the other day I simply fancied a change and I spotted this one in my local Lloyds chemist costing £5.49 and I decided that as it was a little darker than what I'd normally go for and without the amount of shimmer that my others possess it was worth a go! The Packaging: The compact is round in shape with a rich browny coloured plastic base and a ... Read the complete review
