Sorry, we’ve been MIA lately…
Let’s just say LIFE happened!
Sometimes it gets a little too hectic and it takes a while to settle and get back into the groove of things.
We hope to be more regular with posts, but please bare with us 😙 xxx
So today I have a review, and it’s on this 2 in 1 Bronzing Powder from Essence Cosmetics.
So as you can see, it has both a highlighter and a bronzer in 1 compact.
Can we just take a moment to admire how cute this thing is! 😍
What I like about this is that they aren’t in separate pans, so you can even swirl the colours together to get a gorgeous soft bronzer which is perfect if you’re aiming for that glowing goddess look 😉
I also really like the colour of the bronzer, its not too warm that it looks orange and not too cool toned to look muddy.
So it’s quite versatile in the sense that you can use it to bronze or contour!
And the highlighter… absolutely stunning for a “drugstore” brand.
But I’m really not surprised. Essence is 1 of our favourite drugstore brands and they continue to bring us mind blowing products at such affordable prices!
This is a really great product for someone starting out in makeup, because you’re getting a highlighter and bronzer in 1.
And you can use it on your eyes too! I already have.. 1 day when I was travelling and I was too lazy to take out my eyeshadow palette, I just used this. The finish was beautiful. Highlighter all over the lid and bronzer in the crease and outer corner, blend blend blend and you can rock this look any day!
Here are swatches
As you can see, the colours are beautiful and quite pigmented, I must say.
The formulation and texture of it also superb! Soft, creamy and easy to blend!
I truly appreciate the fact that the bronzer is matte and the highlighter is not chunky and glittery.
This is a new release this Autumn and should be in stores already.
It retails for R67.50 and comes in 2 shades.
Hope you guys enjoyed this little review.
