Summer Lovin' - Bronzed Babe

Image from here

I have a love/hate with Bronzer.
And it's always been more hate than love. I know I should embrace it.
Bronzer's seem to make me look red, sunburnt instead of sunkissed.
And some have a ridiculous amount of glitter so I look like I've stepped off a parade float than a boat.


I have found my Holy Grail of bronzer.

The Face Of Australia Pressed Bronzer has changed my opinion of bronzers.

Swatch One is shown over natural skin, Swatch Two over Primer
- The Price, with a RRP of $11.95 you can't go wrong. I have actually bought a second one which now lives in my beach bag.

- Buildable. This starts out light and you can build it up to your preferred colouring. No orange boom.

- Sturdy. Seriously. My makeup bag accompanies me around all day from meeting to meeting. It gets hammered. A lot of products fall apart under that stress, not this one, as you can see from above. Aside from the pretty matte packaging having a few grubby foundation marks, not a crack in the product.


- The sparkles.
This won't have you looking all Cullen-esque but still, its borderline for the amount of shimmer I can take, I wouldn't team this with a shimmery eye or lip.

- The Packaging.
I prefer shiny to matte when it comes to makeup packaging because I get tan/foundation marks on everything, and the shinier it is, the easier it is to wipe off.

Face of Australia Pressed Powder can be purchased from Priceline, Kmart, Big W or selected pharmacies.
Or, purchase online from Fashion Addict to save $

As stated above, I have repurchased this product since I first recieved it.

  1. Bronzers are hard when you're cool skinned or pale. They often look too red or pink or orange on me too. I have a Revlon one that I've used for a while simply because I couldn't find anything better. But recently came across Natio Pressed Powder bronzer. It's browner and has less shimmer than most. I quite like it. This one looks great too!! Thanks, I'm going to go and try it!! Lovely post gorgeous xox

  2. I'll have to check it out! I love a gigantic bronzer myself :)

  3. YAY ill go check it out next time im in priceline for something!

  4. I love this as a blush but not as a bronzer, too warm/glittery for me :)
