My Word on the 17 Warm Bronze Shimmer Pearls:
This is a shimmer bronzer that contains small beads of various colors. There are brown, peach, pink pearly beads with a shimmer to them. It comes in a plastic see-through packaging with a dark brown screw lid on the top. The beads are securely covered with a sponge that does not allow these fragile beads to crush easily.
I have already reviewed my lovely M&S bronzer here on IMBB, which I prefer to wear much more often, but this 17 shimmer bronzer is perfect for any special occasion when you want to add a glow to your face and body along with having a natural sun-kissed look, but do not think that it can just be used during the day; it can give a perfect bit of sparkle for a night-out even. Actually, the light shimmery look adds a different charm to the face during the night and I prefer wearing it more then.
Applying it just requires you to take a large blusher brush and swirl it on the beads 2-3 times to pick up the unique mix of shades and apply it on to the face where the sun might touch you. 😛 It applies so easily and naturally, the best thing about it is that you can apply it carelessly without it looking un-neat :P. It brightens up your face and gives you that summery glow! Blending it is very easy and it can even be used as a body shimmer and can be applied on the shoulders and neck region.
I faced a problem in the beginning while applying this as the small pearls used to get stuck in the brush and led to wastage of the product, but once while travelling, by chance, I left the box loosely opened, which resulted in crushing the pearls and converting it into a powder form, but this made the application much simpler as now, I just touch the powder with my brush, tap it to let go of the excess and apply it with a light hand on the face to achieve the glow I want and it lasts easily for 4-5 hours. 😉 Even removing it is not a hassle and it gets easily removed using any cleanser without leaving any shimmery chunks behind.
The swatch: Top-white light, Bottom- yellow light.
We Indians do not have a very pale skin tone, so bronzers are not a must-have makeup for us, but still this shimmering bronzer is a bit different than your usual bronzers and does add a nice variation to the face when applied properly. I have seen a nice glow and warmth on my face in my snaps whenever I have applied it and so thought of sharing my views on this product with you all.
Blended Top-yellow light & Bottom-white light. The camera was not able to pick the true shade but yes it does blend that well giving a light shimmer bronzed look.
Boots is not a new brand for IMBB readers and have some great product reviews. This is one more hit product from Boots 17 brand, which has some awesome reviews and a 5-star rating online.
So, leaving on you folks to try and judge the product.
My ratings for it would be 3.75/5 (-1.25 for non-availability and also as it is in a category of not a must-have product).
Thanks for reading. Enjoy your day.
