I have read about this bronzer on IMBB before when they discussed the New York Fashion Week and thought I should review this product because I was already in love with it. Mine is in the older packaging and that is why I wanted to wait till I got the new package one, as seen on their website, but I found out that it is the exact same product, just the packaging has changed and a new brush has been included too. So, I decided to share with you beautiful ladies a secret to the perfect matte brown bronzer.
This is THE BEST bronzer out there, at least for me personally. I use it mostly for contouring. It’s just so smooth and soft that it becomes very easy to work with.
I apply it on the hollow of my cheek right from my hairline to almost mid-way and it immediately chisels my face. Applying a touch to the temples and sides of my nose helps thin out my face.
It blends out easily, so it doesn’t look too harsh, especially on the sides of the nose. Make sure you use a light hand while applying this color anywhere, it’s always best to layer on color than to be heavy handed and end up having a botched look when it comes to colors like these. It also works absolutely great as a blush. It’s very hard to find a brown color that would look good as a blush on Indian skin. This does the job, as it has a hint of multidimensional brown tones. So, it doesn’t look like a patch of brown powder on the face!
In the image below, I have swatched it on my hand once on the lower hand, the upper hand is bare. The camera honestly doesn’t do justice to the texture it gives upon application, but I hope the image highlights how subtle it can be if you choose it to be subtle.
This also works very well as an eye shadow. If applying foundation, concealer and powder have made your face too monotone, just apply a wash of this over your entire eyelid to give it back some color. What I also love doing is just using the bronzer on my crease; it defines the eyes by giving an appearance of a deeper crease.

Not highly, but only because of its price. If you are comfortable splurging this amount on a bronzer, then go for it!
