Skintone: Medium fair, warm undertones
I am trying my hands on Bronzers these days. I came across this Bronzing powder and an illuminating powder from Faces some weeks back. So, I decided to give them a try. Today’s review is all about the Bronzing Powder. Read on further to know how it fared for me?

My Experience with Faces Ultime Pro Bronzing Powder:
Beginning with packaging of the product. The bronzing powder comes in a large circular pan, that comes housed in regular black colored cardboard faces packaging. This outer carton has the product related information printed on it. The bronzer comes in a large circular plastic palette. This palette has a large clear flip cap, that shuts very tightly making this palette fit for travel purposes.
The lid has the product’s name embossed on, in silver fonts along with the brand’s tagline. There is no mirror or applicator attached with this packaging. But, it is actually not a con for me. Overall, the packaging is sleek and travel friendly. But, it might not be sturdy and looks a little delicate.
This bronzing powder comes in only one shade. This shade is apt for Asian skin tones. It will perfectly flatter all fairer skin tones and will add a subtle glow to the skin. I have reviewed Shiseido Bronzer some time back. And personally, I like this bronzer more than that. This variant has very finely milled micro shimmers in it, that adds nice luster to the bronzer. It gives a gorgeous sun kissed look. The shimmers in the bronzer are gold color and are super fine. Hence, these are not visible with bare eyes and the bronzer just looks lustrous and glam. The pigmentation of this powder is medium and buildable. One can easily build up the color according to the requirement.
The bronzer is super smooth in term of texture. It glides like a dream on the skin and blends so easily without many efforts. It looks subtle and natural on the skin without looking muddy and ashy. Despite of the presence of shimmers, it does not look gaudy. The bronzing powder is non powdery but still I observed a little fall out in the pan while picking up the product, which I do not mind. So, it is not actually a con for me as it blends beautifully.
The staying power of this bronzing powder is somewhere around 4-5 hours on my super oily skin with a primer underneath. I have sensitive skin, that reacts to facial products so easily and this bronzer has not caused any skin issues to me so far. There were no skin break outs or other skin ailments.
