Catrice Sun Glow Shimmering Bronzing Powder

3/12/2015



Bronzers are one of the weak spots of the drugstore aisles around the globe. They're either too orange, too dark, too shimmery or too sheeny. If we want sheen - we have highlighters and illuminators, right? However, there is a fine line between a regular bronzer and a sculpting powder. You know the drill, we've mentioned this countless times - ashy, gray-ish and cool toned powders are best for subtle definition and sculpting of the face while bronzers impart a healthy glow and warmth to the skin, thus warm undertones aren't a surprise. My fave drugstore bronzer for the longest time was the Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder (aka the chocolate bar) which I've reviewed. It's warm-toned and it contains some subtle shimmer which looks very pretty and natural so this bronzer really falls into the good guys category. Perhaps the best bronzer from the drugstore aisles is the Revelique Cosmetics Bronzing Powder which contains no shimmer and looks 'expensive' on the skin - it's truly one of the best ones I've come across. However, availability of this brand isn't the best so if you're after something affordable along the Bourjois chocolate bar lines - I think I have something for you.

Bronzeri su jedna od slabih tacki kozmetike drogerijskog ranga diljem svijeta. Ili su isuvise narandzasti, isuvise tamni, presljokicasti ili uopsteno sjajni. Ukoliko zelimo sjaj na jagodicama - koristiti cemo hajlajter ili ilumintaor, zar ne? Takodjer, postoji tanka linija izmedju klasicnog bronzera i pudera za definiranje pojedinih crta lica. Znate vec o cemu se radi, spominjale smo ovo vise puta - sivkaste, pepeljaste nijanse hladnog podtona su u biti najbolje za definiranje i konturiranje lica posto imitiraju prirodni izgled sjene koju bacaju npr.izrazene jagodice. Sa druge strane, bronzeri su tu da podare toplinu i zdravi sjaj tenu, samim time topli podton nije iznenadjenje. Meni najdrazi drogerijski bronzer vec duze vrijeme je bio Bourjois Delice De Poudre bronzer (tj. popularna cokoladica) koju sam recenzirala na blogu od ranije. Toplijeg je podtona i sadrzi suptilan shimmer koji zaista djeluje prirodno i lijepo na kozi. Iz tog razloga ovaj bronzer moze posluziti kao primjer kada drogerijski brend napravi dobar proizvod ovog tipa. Ipak, mozda najbolji drogerijski bronzer koji sam isprobala mora biti Revelique Cosmetics bronzer koji uopste ne sadrzi shimmer i izgleda 'skupocjeno' na kozi - uistinu je vrhunski komad kozmetike! Slabija dostupnost ovog brenda je mana i samim time sto njihova kozmetika nije dostupna svakome radije cu preporuciti nesto drugo ovog puta. Ako ste u potrazi za necim sto je slicno Bourjois cokoladici a ne kosta mnogo novca - mislim da imam prijedlog za vas.





Catrice Sun Glow Shimmering Bronzing Powder is quite a good looking fella - I love the woven pattern which compensates for the plastic packaging. In all fairness, it's rather sturdy and offers a satisfying clicky sound upon closing/opening motions. You get 9g of product which seems like something I'll never hit pan on - at least you know you're getting a lot for your money. This also means that this is a tad clunky bronzer but again - you get your money's worth. I have the version for medium skin (which suits my complexion) called Shimmering Bronze 010. I was certain that there are two shades within this bronzer - the light pale yellow/golden one and a warmer bronze one at both sides but it turns out there are slight differences between two darker shades but they both appear exactly the same on my skin therefore I've made only swatches of them both mixed together, the pale golden shade and how they all look when swirled together. I mostly get a flattering honey hue from this bronzer which looks very pretty and I'd agree it suits medium skintones - perhaps even some fair ones with warm undertones. The shimmer is subtle indeed and although it's a matter of preference - I think it looks suitable for daywear as well. Longevity is awesome since I get an entire day of wear and I still come home to fresh, bronzey cheeks after work. I like to apply this bronzer with a big fluffy blush brush (such as the Real Techniques one). It gives a really nice caramel/honey-hued warmth to my face and I must say I'm pleasantly surprised with this one. I think it's a wonderful alternative to the Bourjois bronzer and being under a fiver surely doesn't hurt!

Catrice Sun Glow Shimmering bronzer je zgodjusan momak, zar ne? Jako mi se dopada utisnuta sara poput pletiva koja kompenzira cak i cinjenicu da je pakovanje dosta jednostavno i plasticno. Ruku na srce, pakovanje je uprkos plasticnoj gradji dosta cvrsto i pouzdano pruzajuci onaj zadovoljavajuci 'klik' pri svakom otvaranju/zatvaranju. U njemu se nalazi 9g proizvoda za sto vjerujem da nikada necu dotaci dno - no barem znate da cete za svoj novac dobiti i kolicinski mnogo proizvoda. Imajte na umu da, zbog vece kolicine bronzera i samo pakovanje djeluje pomalo glomazno no ponoviti cu - bez obzira na to, imati cete osjecaj da ste kupili nesto sto ce trajati jako dugo vremena (isplativa je kozmeticka investicija). Moja verzija ovog bronzera je namijenjena srednje tamnim tonovima koze (sto mi i odgovara) pod nazivom Shimmering Bronze 010. Bila sam uvjerena da se u sklopu ovog bronzera nalaze dvije nijanse - svjetlija blijedo zlatna i toplija bronzana boja sa oba krajnja coska. Kasnije sam ustanovila da su tamniji coskovi blago drugacijih nijansi no na mojoj kozi djeluju identicno. Ovo vam pisem jer cete vidjeti swtacheve svijetle zlacane nijanse i mjesavinu obje tamnije + rezultat kada se sve nijanse pomijesaju. U sustini, dobijam jako lijepu zlacano/karamelastu nijansu koja zaista lijepo pristaje srednje tamnoj kozi ali bi vjerovatno pristajala i svjetlijoj kozi toplog podtona. Shimmer je suptilan i iako je ovo stvar ukusa, moram reci da meni licno ne smeta i uklapa se u dnevni make-up koji nosim. Trajnost je izvrsna posto se bronzer na kozi zadrzava cijeli dan. Cesto me, kada se vratim kuci sa posla, docekaju i dalje svjezi obrazi. Ovaj bronzer (kao i svaki uostalom) volim nanositi velikim mekanim kistom za rumenilo (poput Real Techniques kista). Efekat je prirodan u tonovima meda i karamele te sam uopsteno pozitivno iznenadjena ovim kozmetickim proizvodom. Mislim da je sjajna alternativa za Bourjois cokoladicu a cinjenica da kosta cca 9KM mu u svakom slucaju ide u prilog.
