Today I am here with a review on a bronzer by Makeup Revolution. I guess this is their newly launched bronzer as I have not seen it anywhere on Indian shopping sites. After reading so many good reviews about Makeup Revolution products, I couldn’t resist myself and ordered few stuff from their official website. As I had never used any contouring or a bronzing product before, I added this bronzer to my cart (also because it was very cheap). For those who want to know how much MUR charges for International shipping, they charged me 8 pounds which is around INR 782.
Create the perfect sun kissed look for any time of the year! Easily blendable and buildable for the desired look. We have used a unique compact case which includes a sponge with a mirror. Perfect for touch ups on the go and a must for when you are on the move.

My Experience with Makeup Revolution Bronze Kiss Bronzer:
Firstly let’s talk about the packaging of the bronzer. The bronzer comes in a very uniquely designed round compact case which opens sideways, and not like most of the bronzing powders. It is transparent from top and black from the sides. There is a white sticker at the back of the bronzer which includes its shade name, ingredients etc.
There is a small sponge tucked beneath the bronzer pan which I think is very innovative. But who uses bronzer with a sponge; the sponge provided is useless, I guess. The bronzer pan gets shut tightly when it closes, which means it can be carried around easily without any risk of it creating a mess. The packaging is same as their compact powder’s.
It is a very cooled toned bronzer with greyish undertones. The shade does not show that well on my wheatish skin as you all can see in my swatch picture. But this shade works great when I want a nice and subtle contouring which does not look stark and heavy. The shade, Bronze Kiss, will work amazingly well for the girls who are on the fairer side. The bronzer comes in 3 different types from this range the first one is light, the second is medium and this is the third one.
The texture of this powder is smooth and soft; it is creamy in texture and not at all powdery. It can be layered up several times without looking chalky or cakey. The pigmentation of the bronzer is amazing but the staying power is less. But I don’t mind it considering the price it is available at. I had applied it when I was going for a party at 8 in the evening and when I came back home at 11 the bronzer was not showing up; it was looking as I have not done any contouring.
Pros of Makeup Revolution Bronze Kiss Bronzer:
• Creative packaging
• Smooth and creamy texture
• Does not look chalky or cakey when layered
• Beautiful cool toned bronzer with grey undertones
• Travel friendly
• Very affordable
• Amazingly pigmented
Cons of Makeup Revolution Bronze Kiss Bronzer:
• Staying power could have been better
• This shade does not show up well on my wheatish skin
Would I Recommend Makeup Revolution Bronze Kiss Bronzer?
Beginners in bronzing and contouring, like me, should definitely try this baby out. The shade is perfect for subtle contouring. It is inexpensive as well as travel friendly. I will buy a better bronzer next time.
