In last week's haul I showed you these snazzy bronzers I had picked up at Boots and now I've had a little go with them, I'm ready to review them.
I bought two out of the three bronzers thinking one would be for when I have fake tanned and one would be for when I'm braving my natural skin colour (actually so pale that it's practically see-through!).
On the left is Rich Bronze and the right is Glam Tan. They usually retail for £8.99 each but Boots have an offer on and they are currently £7.99- Every penny counts!
I was initially really excited about this as they reminded of MAC MSF Bronzers with all the different shades and the gold veining. I use my MAC Duo Fibre (suspected fake-dagnam eBay you swine!) to swirl the colours round and apply to my temples and apples of my cheeks.
Whilst the swatches are quite impressive, I find the actual product to be a little bit of a let down. I may need to experiment a bit more but I find that the gold glitter isn't as finely milled in the skin as it looks in the pan and unlike the glitter in MAC Belightful, it stands out and looks a bit garish.
Both colours have this issue and are very similar. The difference being that Glam Tan is more goldy than the Rich Bronze, which is, surprise surprise, more bronzey.
I don't think these will draw me away from my cheapy-peapy £1.95 2True Bronzer (it's bloomin' amazing I tell ya!) or my MAC Belightful Highlighter but being as I spent about £16 I couldn't afford to write them off. After playing around with them a bit I have actually found a really good use for them.
I am now using them with a big kabuki brush applied in a vertical line down the front of my thigh, knee and shin to create a slimming effect, on my shoulders and decolletage for a sunkissed effect and in my cleavage to draw the eye....naughty ;)
If I'm feeling fruity I also dust a bit on my arms for a sparkly-parkly effect.
I think these products are average for what they are, very pretty to look at but quite pricey. I don't think I will be trying Prestige again after the malting blush brush (reviewed on one of my youtube videos) and these bronzers :(. Oh well, more room for all the other brands! Woop!
Have you ever been please by Prestige?
