Hola Beautiful IMBBians!!!
Blushes don’t go so well on my Indian skin tone but I do try to use them to contour my face, give more definition to my cheek bones and make my face appear slender. However, most of the bronzers are way too orange or artificial which makes one appear unnaturally tanned, as if one had a mishap at the tanning salon.

In the past I have used the Lakme bronzer which is way too orange for me and I ended up using it as a body highlighter. I have also used the Covergirl bronzer which was way too light for me, but this did not make me stop trying bronzers from other brands.
The product in this post is my latest tryst with bronzers.

My Take on Wet n Wild Bikini Contest Coloricon Bronzer:
My Lakme bronzer has been half used and the Covergirl bronzer is still untouched but I decided to buy another one, even though I have had bad experiences with bronzers in the past. I feel bronze and coral shades don’t suit my dusky complexion so I always find myself reaching for pink blushes and they do a decent job of imparting a rosy hue to my cheeks but I have been craving for a more chiseled look of late hence I bought this product.
Packaging: Product is in a plastic pan which is then attached to a plastic case with a see through cover. The packaging is not very sturdy and the cover of the case is a little wobbly. However, I love how the product is pressed into the pan even though it has no inbuilt mirror or a brush.

Texture: It’s a powder bronzer and is liable to have some fallout; however it is not worth complaining. One can dab off the excess from the brush while applying to remove any loose pigment. It is very soft in texture and blends effortlessly.

Color: A very pretty tan- bronze hue with a varying density of shimmer in each color. It does not have big chunky shimmer particles which get transferred easily or spread all over the place but has really smooth particles like that of a baby powder which gives a homogeneous finish.

Shimmer and Shine: It has a very pretty sheen to it but one has to exercise caution while using it or your face might end up looking too greasy or orange especially during summers. If used sparingly, it can give a good lift to your cheek bones, hide double chin and skim down chubby nose.
Wear Time: Entire day or till it is removed, however, the shimmer particles might transfer a bit if subjected to vigorous rubbing.
