A new bronzing favourite



The Rosie Huntington-Whiteley makeup collaboration with Marks and Spencers went big in the world of beauty, I added Rosie on snapchat and it was only then that I caved into the hype and decided I needed a bronzer, a lipstick... Basically, everything! I was actually lucky enough to find the bronzer on depop at a fraction of the retail price and unused, this bronzer has now become an everyday makeup staple.

The colour 

I don't have too many bronzers in my collection so I needed to try some more, having a pale complexion my usual option is something like The Body Shop honey bronzer as its a pretty neutral shade that isn't too dark or warm, perfect for me in the winter. There are two shades "Bronzed Beauty," and "Magic Contour," I have the latter, which for a contour shade isn't great for me, but as an overall bronze I love it. Like The Body Shop bronzer this is a very middle of the road shade, helping to provide a natural looking glow without looking at all fake. This is slightly darker and warmer than a bronzer I would usually go for, but it is perfect for the summer or if I'm wearing fake tan.

Formulation/ Pigmentation/ Longevity

The powder matches up to the price tag as it is incredibly silky soft and light weight, I find this blends really easily and sits well on top of my base. One thing I would say is that this stuff is pigmented, not to the point where it is difficult to work with, but I think without a light hand this can look a little over done. One thing I find always sets premium and high street products apart is how well they last on the skin throughout the day, I was so impressed to find this still on my face after 8 hours of wear. On my oily skin that is pretty much unheard of!

Is it worth the money? I actually think it is, the packaging is gorgeous, the product itself feels premium and you get a good amount of product... I am yet to find another bronzer that lasts this long on my skin, which is a massive bonus as no one wants to be topping up their makeup throughout the day, especially in summer.

  1. A silky and soft completely got me as well as the colour. I'd definitely try this out if the price tag wasn't so high!

  3. This looks sooo gorgeous! I really wish that this could be available for overseas customers outside the EU/UK :( I want to get some of her makeup but they won't ship, too bad. These would look great in Nordstroms or some other department stores. I'd love to see a swatch of this bronzer on your skin tone! It looks like it would be perfect for me too.
