Today's post is all about bronzers, featuring products from Rodial, Revolution, KIKO, Physician's Formula and Too Faced, therefore a good mixture of prices and new and cult products.
Firstly, we have the Rodial Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder (£52.00), which is the most expensive of the five, and is only available in one shade. However, that shade is a universal colour which has been created to suit all skin tones. It comes in a sleek black pleather and chrome silver compact and has a mirror on the inside of the lid for any on-the-go touch-ups. I do actually think this is a really beautiful bronzer and contour powder, as it feels silky to the touch and blends in seamlessly. I also remember that this was one of Caroline Flack's favourite products and she always looked beautiful. You can find it online at Rodial here.
At the complete opposite end of the price spectrum, we have the Revolution Bronzer Reloaded in the shade Holiday Romance (£3.00). There are three shades available, and I believe that this is the lightest. It comes in a peach compact and doesn't have a mirror, but for £3.00, that really is not an issue. This bronzer is a shimmery bronzer, so if you like a healthy glow, then this is going to give you just that. The formula is lovely and soft, and for those of you with darker skin tones, you could even use this as a highlighter. A great everyday bronzer for an amazing price. You can find it online at Revolution here.
KIKO always create some of the most beautiful collections, and when I saw the KIKO Sicilian Notes Nourishing Bronzer (£14.99), I knew I had to try it out. I have the shade 01 Mediterranean Sand, and when I went back online to check the price, I did realise there is only one shade available at the moment, Soft Marsala - KIKO limited editions always sell out pretty quickly. This gorgeous peach compact includes a mirror on the inside of the lid and then a beautifully embossed bronzer, which includes a pop of peach in the middle of it. The formula contains hyaluronic acid and lemon seed oil to keep the skin nourished during wear, which I think is a nice added touch, and therefore very comfortable to wear. You can find it online at KIKO here.
On to an oldie, but a goldie, the Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer (£12.99). I have gone through three compacts of this bronzer, and it is still my favourite. It is buttery soft, as the name suggests, and the shade really suits my skintone. The products itself does smell of buttered popcorn slightly, which isn't my thing at all, but I love it that much that I just have to put up with it. There are four shades available, but the original Bronzer shade is the one that suits me that most. I have tried two of the other shades, but have always preferred this one. It has a tropical look to the packaging and if you need a bronzer, please just try this one first! You can find it at Boots here.
A bronzer which has been around a while now, but which I hadn't previously tried is the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer* (£25.00). There are three different shades available, however Milk Chocolate is perfect for my lighter skin tone. The Bronzer comes in a super sleek compact, complete with little love heart opening, which reveals a mirror on the inside of the lid and then the bronzer pan. There is a delicious chocolatey fragrance when you open up the compact and the formula is infused with 100% cocoa powder. I love how this bronzer doesn't give a muddy look to the skin, and instead complements it beautifully. The formula is super soft and silky and blends into the skin in seconds, leaving you with a very comfortable, yet super gorgeous bronzed glow. You can find it online at Debenhams here.
