Favorite Drugstore Bronzers

One would think that I might lay off the bronzer as soon as Autumn has arrived but it seems that I'm more into it now than I was before! I may not be the poster child of the J.Lo glow look but I sure do love me some warmth a good bronzer imparts. Sadly, my tan which I loved, has already faded quite a bit and my face can look pale at times (especially in the morning). 

I wasn't sure if a bronzer comparison would be interesting for you guys but I must admit that even I gasped when I put them side by side – the difference between them is rather significant. After my major makeup clearout (post on that coming your way!), I have noted that I'm most certainly a drugstore bronzer girl. Something I would not think of myself before as the drugstore offer of bronzers never was impressive. However, I have stumbled upon some great pieces in the past years and my desire for that Guerlain Terracotta goodness has subsided (for now). I have four bronzers that float my boat and they all are pretty diverse, as you'll be able to tell from photos.

Revelique Cosmetics Bronzing Powder – I always think that it's such a shame this brand and this product isn't widely accessible because it's a dream for light and fair skin. Soft and silky, it glides over the skin seamlessly and it's free from any orange undertones. Looks very natural and radiant. As my skin is darker than before (despite my tan fading), I note it sinks into my skin and almost blends with its color. It's something I like to use all over my face because it ‘lifts’ my complexion and gets rid of any sallowness. Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder is the old timer from the drugstores and it keeps people's interest for years for a reason. It's the warmest one from all four in this bunch but it doesn't translate as orange. Looks rather radiant, smells delish and has a tiny amount of micro shimmer – puritans and very fair skin tones won't like this or the warm tone but it looks amazing in real life on everyone else. My opinion is that it's worth purchasing if you've been eyeing it up.

Manhattan Matt Bronzing Powder in Medium was the most worn bronzer of this summer for me. I adore the matte, very natural finish and the buttery texture. It sinks into the skin, leaves no tell-talle stripes and literally makes everyone think you've been on holidays until yesterday. Pigmented and/or sheer as you please, buildable as a dream and perfect for medium skin tones thanks to orange-free, almost cool and taupey undertone. theBalm Bahama Mama is the coolest cat here (literally and figuratively) and even though some get goosebumps from the bare mention that bronzer can be used to contour – this one definitely does fit that bill. Buttery soft but not crumbly, pigmented and streak-free – this is pretty much the ideal universal bronzing powder. From fair to medium skin tones, it will look amazing on anyone. 

Now do you see why I have no desire to explore beyond the drugstore aisle?

  • Pomislili bi da cu sa dolaskom jeseni rijedje koristiti bronzere ali desava se upravo suprotno – jedni su od proizvoda za kojima najvise posezem iz svog nesesera. Ne spadam u skupinu zena koje brizno njeguju J.Lo glow izgled tokom cijele godine ali sam veliki ljubitelj topline koju kvalitetan bronzer podari licu. Nazalost, broncani ten sa ljetovanja je vec dosta izblijedio a licu vec nedostaje boje (sto se posebno primjecuje ujutro). 
  • Nisam bila sigurna da li bi vam usporedni post meni najdrazih bronzera bio interesantan sve dok ih sama nisam poredala – razlike izmedju njih su znacajne! Nakon velike cistke kozmeticke kolekcije (post na tu temu dolazi uskoro), shvatila sam da se po pitanju bronzera najvise oslanjam na drogerijski rang. Ovo je iznenadjujuca izjava posto su od ranije drogerije bile ozloglasene po losoj ponudi bronzera. Ipak, u prilog tezi da se to promijenilo stoji par izvrsnih komada koji su me uvjerili da mi nije potreban Guerlain Terracotta (barem za sada). Zelim vam pokazati cetiri bronzera vecinom pristupacnih cijena kojima sam jako zadovoljna i dosta su razliciti, sto cete primjetiti na fotkama.
  • Revelique Cosmetics bronzer (9KM) – uvijek cu spominjati kako je velika steta sto ovaj brend a pogotovo ovaj proizvod nisu bolje zastupljeni i dostupni sirim narodnim masama posto je savrsen za svijetlu put. Mekan i svilenkast, divno klizi preko koze i ne sadrzi narandzasti podton. Izgleda veoma prirodno i lice djeluje osvjezeno kada ga nosim. Posto mi je koza tamnija nego npr. prosle godine (unatoc tome sto broncani ten nije vise u punoj snazi), sada kao da se ovaj bronzer stopi sa mojim tenom i gotovo izgubi u njemu. Zbog toga ga volim nanijeti skoro pa preko cijelog lica posto kozu lijepo osvjezi i cini da izgleda zdravo. Bourjois Delice de Poudre bronzer (25KM) je jedan od rijetkih drogerijskih old tajmera koji svo ovo vrijeme zadrzavaju paznju kupaca. Najtopliji je od moje cetvorke odabranih ali nije narandzast. Na kozi djeluje lijepo, podari toplinu, mirise slasno ali sadrzi malo sitnog shimmera. Shimmer i topli podton su vjerovatno razlozi zbog kojih ce ga preskociti puritanci te osobe svijetle puti. Licno mislim da ga vrijedi isprobati ako ste ga vec mjerkale neko vrijeme.
  • Manhattan Matt bronzer nijansa Medium (12KM) je bronzer kojeg sam najvise nosila ovog ljeta i potpuno sam se zaljubila u njega! Jako mi se svidja prirodni mat finish i puterasta formulacija ovog divnog, divnog proizvoda koji kao da se rastopi i utone u kozu. Dodatni bonus jeste sto cini da svi misle kako ste se tek jucer vratili sa nekog egzoticnog odmora. Moze biti intenzivan ili njezan, sve po potrebi posto se sa lakocom nadogradjuje u slojevima. Savrsen je za srednje taman ten zbog bogate nijanse ali i posto je pomalo hladan/taupe na kozi. Kada smo kod hladnijeg podtona, theBalm Bahama Mama (40KM) vodi u ovoj kategoriji. Iako se nekome podizu dlacice na vartu kada se spominje konturisanje bronzerom – Bahama Mama nije folirant, on to zaista moze. Puterasto mekan ali bez rasipanja, pigmentirano se i ravnomjerno nanosi – uistinu je utjelovljenje univerzalnog bronzera. Od svijetlog to srednje tamnog tena oduseviti ce vas, u to sam sigurna!
  • Da li sada razumijete zbog cega trenutno nemam motivaciju da istrazujem bronzere izvan drogerijskog ranga?
