Benefit style box powders at a fraction of the price? Yes please! Despite the fact I’ve been raving about Benefit’s Dallas (reviewed here) for a while, I couldn’t resist this cheeky little treat when I saw it. As a pale-faced lady I’ve really struggled with the idea of bronzer for a long time, I instantly associate it with orange trendy types and dismissed it as a part of my routine until very recently when I discovered the glory that is contouring.
This is such a great contour bronzer for pale skin. It has a matte finish and is definitely more of a warm brown tone than anything close to unsavoury orange. It has a good build-able pigmentation and surprisingly great lasting power. The fact that it is so matte really makes this a must have for me, as almost all bronzers have at least a little shimmer to them making them less than ideal for using for contour.
I definitely never want to use bronzer as an all over face product (too much of a dirty goff to want to look even slightly sunkissed!) but if you do like the healthy glow look, used sparingly this gives a suitable tone without the tell-tale all over shimmer.
The little brush is no better than it’s Benefit counterpart, but at least is synthetic! I’d personally rather stick to a “proper” face brush, but if you had no alternative it would suffice.
Available for only £2.95 from FragranceDirect.co.uk.
Totally hellbent for finally finding a cheap matte bronzer
