Every year Clarins brings out a special edition bronzer and this year is no exception. This year’s stunning design was love at first sight for me. On swatching it at a counter, the silky smooth texture endorsed my need of owing the bronzer:)
This is a giant bronzer, all 20g of it! It is housed in a beautiful limited edition round compact, embossed with hibiscus flowers and palm leaves.
There are 4 distinct shades, 3 matte bronzer shades and an iridescent orangey coral blush. You can definitely pick up the shades individually with a small cheek brush. I like to run my brush all over the pan for a dose of healthy and glowy sun-kissed look. There are tiny gold sparkles in the blush but it does not translate onto my skin. This is a warm undertone bronzer and I think it could look slightly orange on some light skin tones.
The formula of Clarins Bronzing and Blush powder is beautiful! I love the smooth and silky texture. It is very pigmented and blends out effortlessly. The opaqueness is buildable which allows you to have complete control over how soft or striking your look is. It lasts all day (over 8 hours) on me with minimal fading.
Clarins states that there are also plant extracts within the product. It is fabulous to know that your skin could be hydrated and protected from harmful effects of pollution during wear. I am all for makeup with skincare benefits!
Overall, I really enjoy Clarins Summer 2017 Bronzing and Blush Compact. I adore the pretty design and the excellent quality of the powder. I’m delighted to own my very first limited edition bronzer offering from Clarins!
I purchased Clarins Bronzing and Blush Compact from Boots |£32.

Much love always,
