Have you got colour in your cheeks? Yes, that is Arctic Monkeys “Do I Wanna Know?” (listen )
This song actually inspired me to write about my current favourite cheek products. But, and this will be a shock for regular readers, I have been neglecting blushes lately. Yes, really.
And here are the two products that I have been using religiously lately…
Trish’s bronzer is probably my favourite out of all that I own. It is not too dark, too orange/muddy/shimmery/you name it. It warms up the complexion, and adds just the right amount of glow thanks to the delicate shimmer. Golden Bronzer looks amazing even on my light skin tone. Moreover, it is very finely milled, so blends beautifully and looks natural. Brilliant product. Maybe this will be the first ever bronzer that I use up?Read More
You all know that I am a huge fan of cream products, and mentioned various cream blushers so many times. But what about bronzers?
Yes, cream bronzers! I have three variants to show you here:
The most famous is definitely Soleil Tan de Chanel (review and swatches)
It is a cult classic for a reason, it is such a versatile product, it can be used as a base to warm up the complexion or as a regular bronzer to add some glow and definition to the face. The texture is light and the formula blends like a dream. I Highly recommend it, unless you very fair skin tone, this is the most orange-toned bronzer out of three.

There are not that many cream bronzers on the market, not that I am the biggest bronzer fan/user, but I do like myself a cream product plus a lot of the readers are!
So I am excited to tell you about the Sienna X Cream To Powder Bronzer And Illuminator which was launched relatively recently.
There are two cream products, bronzer and highlighter. So here are my thoughts about each.
It is much creamier than the highlighter and I really like the texture of it as it is so easy to blend it into the skin without it looking patchy or streaky, even on my dry skin. While it may look a bit orangey on fair and very light skin complexions, it looks amazing on more tanned/darker skin tones.
It works great for warming up the skin and, I assume, you could mix it with the foundation to get a sun kissed look, like with Chanel’s Bronze Universel. I’ve just realized that I never tried it that way, although I’ve had this product for a long time already, but will give it a go!
It has aRead More
Today I want to show you the cult beauty product that is Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universel Bronzing Makeup Base. Actually I can’t believe that I never did that before.
Here is how it looks like, it is a classic Chanel design and you get a lot of product for your money (£32/$48) actually.
So what is it?
Chanel describes it as light cream-gel bronzer with a velvety finish. You can basically wear it underneath the foundation, as the name suggests, to make your skin look healthier and, as it is popular to say, ‘sun-kissed’. Because the texture is so blendable and light it won’t look as if you’ve caked on tones of makeup. Plus it does not feel greasy or oily at all!

Since we were talking about Clarins earlier today, I thought I would show you the bronzers from their summer 2012 makeup collection.
There are three variations: light, medium and dark. And here they are in all their glory.
All three bronzers are divided into two parts: a lighter matte shade and a darker shade with shimmer. I think it’s a great idea as you can use them individually or mix together.
Bronzing Duo Powders contain white tea extract and 100% mineral sunscreen which ‘offer protection against the three main causes of ageing-pollution, free radicals and UV rays’. They also smell absolutely amazing.
I have been using these bronzers to add some warmth to my face and to do some contouring. I also love using them as eye shadows, especially in the crease.
The product blends nicely into the skin and stays on for several hours. I amRead More
