Ahhh... Summer. I know most of you love summer because of the beaches you'll visit, road trips you'll be on and all the traveling. Count me in with all of those because I love them too but one thing that I don't like about summer is the sun exposure! I always spend time putting on sunblock since pre-mature skin aging is a no-no and the drawbacks to traveling means you're out under the sun, exposed! Gah!
But if you're tan this season, you're so in! So what's a girl to do? hmmm.. just FAKE your BAKE!! =D
No this is not a self tanning product but a nice matte bronzer. I've been on the prowl for a nice bronzer that is matte so that I could also use if for contouring. (Hello instant nose lift? =D) I saw some matte bronzers from some high end cosmetic brands but the cheapo me don't want to give in and the more affordable bronzers almost always have a bit of shimmer so I haven't found my perfect contouring/ bronzing powder until I found this...
The No7 Sun Drenched Bronzer from Boots! This is one of the beauty find I found in Bangkok. What I love about this product is the texture is creamy for a powder and it blends really well on the skin and it comes out sheer so that you'll never over-do your application so that you won't lool like you have been slapped in the cheek! =P
Also what's great is that it has 4 gradient shades from dark to light so you can just choose the shade that's best for your skin color or blend all the shades together for a natural finish! It's also a plus for a Make-up Artist like me so that I only need to buy 1 bronzer for all skin tones I'll be putting on make-up! =D
One more thing I like is that the shades are warm tones and not rosy tones which is perfect for asian skin! I swirl my Suesh Contour/ Bronzer Brush on all four colors to give me a nice tanned effect but I usually use the 2nd to the lightest shade for contouring my nose.
It truly is a great product and for only THB550 (Approx: ₱790). It's not bad for that price since you're like buying 4 bronzers! =D The downside of this product is that it's Limited Edition which sucks if ever I run out on these. But if ever you ever drop by Bangkok, check out their Boots stores that are scattered all over and be on the look out for this product, buy it then give to me as Pasalubong! =D
By the way, where are you headed this summer? Do share! =D
