The only Bronzer that you will EVER need!

Okay now that was a bit of an exaggeration. How can I even put in words such an extreme statement!

But you know what I mean right? If a make up addict can dare to say that, it automatically says something about the product.

No 7's Sculpting Bronzer is no different really. But what makes is so convenient and stand out from the rest is the fact that,

- It's matte and
- has four complimentary bronzing shades



See the gorgeous array of matte browns there. Such a change from all that drug store shimmer bronzer's isn't it? The sand dune inspired embedded design is so interesting too. That definitely gives it a high-end product feel in my opinion.


By matte colours I don't by any way mean chalky powdery mattes. These are silky high quality satin-matte shades just as expected of No 7. They glide on so easily and blend like a dream. 

You get a true bronze shade, a deep brown with slightly orange undertone, a gorgeous beige-brown (which reminds me so much of Chanel Bronze Universal) and a beige highlighter. 


I like to use this with a fan brush for precise application. Always use smaller brushes for bronzer's, that way you achieve a more flattering effect as to exactly where you want the colour to be placed.

I use the first two darker shades to contour my cheeks before I apply blusher. I cannot stand brown cheeks! The other two lighter shades work perfectly to contour the other areas of the face such as the forehead, temples, nose bridge and jawline.

Handy when you can't decide which bronzer to use or just to pick one up for travelling. I got this from Boots for £13.

This looks so cool do you think this would work well on darker skin tones x

Get Gawjus! said...

@Imo - I don't think it would show up as well :( Something more shimmery and pigmented like the Illamsqua bronzers would look great!

sami said...
