My Thoughts on: Bourjois Paris: Bronzing Powder

Today I want to talk to y'all about this bronzer that I found. Now, I scour beauty blogs up and down for the best products for pale people like me. Some of my favorite beauty blogs are from British bloggers, and it's usually really hard to find a lot of the products that they mention. It may be a bit of a long one, but if you want to see a short recap of if I liked it, would I buy it again, will I keep it or give it away, you can just skip to the end!

I don't know if y'all have heard of a site called ASOS but I tend to order from them a lot. They have a lot of sales and you can usually find something that you like there. I ended looking at their beauty section the other day (or you know, a month ago) and found that they had the Bourjois Paris Bronzing Powder (it's got the french name, Poudre Bronzante, Delice de Poudre) on sale for about $8.00. Now, they don't have it on sale anymore, but you can find it hereif you want to check it out.

I haven't actually used any other products from Bourjois before so I'm not really sure how much of their other products measure up, but I really liked this product. My favorite part of this product is the packaging. It comes in a little booklet, which makes it awesome to travel with. Plus when you open it up, it actually looks like chocolate. It doesn't have a strong smell of chocolate, it's actually quite faint. Once you put it on your face, you can't really smell it. It's better than some of the other bronzers that I've used before.

I know it looks a little orange on my hand in the last picture, but I promise on my face it's definitely not. It also looks a little bit shimmery in the package, but it's not shiny either. I can use the shade that I brought #52 (they also have a #51 shade) as either a contour or a bronzer. The thing about this bronzer is that you don't really need too, too much of it. I'm sure that too much of anything can make you look really bad, and this is no exception.

One of my smaller, more meaningless complaints about the product is the fact that it doesn't have a mirror on the inside. Instead, it's got a short blurb about the product, and how to apply it. Unfortunately for me, the powder that I use to set my make up (most days) doesn't have a mirror on it either. So that means I'll now have two larger products being carried around in my purse that don't have mirrors on them. It's a small complaint, but a complaint at that.

Short Review: I really liked this product. It doesn't make me look orange or muddy, nor does it have any shimmer in it. I bought it off of ASOS for about $8 during a sale that they were having. Bourjois is a french brand, but I found it through beauty bloggers in Britain. I use it to contour and bronze. Once I run out, I'd probably buy it again if I haven't found anything to substitute it for!

What is your favorite bronzer? Is it a drugstore brand or an upscale brand?
