Bring On Summer Baby

It's kinda frustrating when after spending a fortune on high-end blushers, trying to find the one that gives you a 'Nargasm' (short for Nars Orgasm, I know I come up with lame stuff - its a hobby) glow, you come accross a cheaply priced product which gives you exactly what you were looking for.

I discovered two hidden gems in the form of Miners Bronzer Blends today. Ones called Sun Blushed which is a mix of soft brown and muted pink. I am wearing them swirled together in the picture above and it looks stunning in my opinion! This is exactly what you would want to achieve from Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose.

The brown creates dimension and the pink gives a rosy flush to the cheeks. It also reminds me of the Illuminating Bronzers Bobbi Brown came up with which were incredibly expensive to indulge in. This one gives BB a run for its money!

Another one's called Sun Kissed and this one is a mix of bronze and light tan. It creates dimension and gives a truly sun kissed appearance. This one is exactly like the Illamasqua Bronzer due, just much more affordable.

These are shockingly priced at £3.99 each, but they are so good I would happily pay more. I did not expect much from them as they looked pretty drug store-ish but their quality is commendable - in the line of Bobbi Brown, The Body Shop and Illamasqua I would say.

They are not powder or shimmery or chalky. They are simply illuminating bronzers which give you a sun kissed glow. They give an out of this world sheen to the cheeks which stays put the whole day. It is so silky and smooth that you don't even need to blend. The final effect looks like a cream or a mousse bronzer, powder - no way.

I first thought these were lip glosses but the blue gave it away. These nail paints are Miners Spring/Summer Collection priced at £2.99 each. They are all shimmery, the least shimmer being in the hot pink (Rio Pink) one.

They are not my favourite in consistency, as they are slightly streaky and you need to work with it to get the right coverage. If you do not like shimmer then these are not for you. That said, the colors are absolutely adorable!

I usually despise shimmery nail paints but I have some favourites here, Denim Shorts (baby blue) and Flamingo (bronzey coral). These will look gorgeous for the summer ladies. I will be doing NOTD's on the other colors soon, so stay tuned.

Overall, I am overtly impressed with the brand especially as it's priced so reasonably and I don't simply say that as I received these for consideration but because I am in love with their bronzers and want you guys to try them :)

The nail paints could have been better in consistency but you can't complain for the price eh? Plus I already have some favourites here so I can't complain.

If you want to be ready be summer, don't forget to check them out here.

@Smaira - also they are stocked at pharmacies throughout the Uk and abroad I guess. There is a 'stocklist' option on their website where you can find your nearest pharmacy that stocks them.
