Rimmel Natural Bronzer - Review
It's official: spring is here.
I mean, technically, spring has been here for over a month and we are having summer like temperatures- but with the return of the warmer months I star to get that want for sunshine and realize just how pale my skin is looking.
I love bronzers, if I'm wearing a full face of makeup, I might not wear blush, but I always wear a bit of bronzer, specially for contour purposes. But now, I'm in on the "bronzing up" waggon. A bit on the forehead (which mine is massive) a bit down the cheekbones and a bit on the jaw, just as if I had actually had some contact with sun and haven't been cooked up in an office or in college most of my week.
A couple of months ago, I saw a Lisa Eldridge video where she talked about bronzers, and being this, Rimmel Natural Bronzer, her favourite drugstore one, I though "good enough for Lisa, good enough for me" and I picked it up. And lemme say, not disappointed.
The shade is 028 sunrise and it's a nice not-to-warm not-to-cool toned bronzer, at a great price. I was disappointed tho that it has an ever so slightly shimmer which makes it not perfect for contouring, but it is amazing for bronzing. Super pigmented and not too powdery.
My only complaint is the packaging. I know, I'm always complaining about packaging. But the fact that this has no securing the lid or anything, makes it terrible for travelling. The lid is the same as the stay matte powder one, so If you want to take it in you bag or even on a travel makeup bag, I would recommend fastening it with some tape of a elastic bag. Also, not mirror is always a minus for me.
With all that been said, I would recommend this one for anyone looking for a cheap and great bronzer.
Have you tried this? what's your favourite drugstore bronzer?
