Gosh Bronzing Shimmer Powder

The first thing I can say about them is that they are a dupe for the highly desirable and talked about Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzers which came out a year or so back.

Don't you think?

I absolutely wanted to get one of those but for over £30 a pop, I could not justify such a purchase. The shades Antigua and Maui still haunt me in my dreams.

But I've finally found a solution to them. These look much prettier than the Bobbi Brown ones and perform pretty much the same if not better.

Gosh Bronzing Shimmer Powder in Bronze and Pink.

Look at their golden shimmer coat. It's out of this world pretty in real! Plus the ridges like pattern that they have created on the powder is quite unique in my opinion.

If you're thinking these might give you that 'cullen' effect then you're correct, at first it does but after dusting a huge paddle brush over it for quite a few times, you get a clean powder blusher and bronzer and all that golder overlay simply disappears. 

The product is still left with a sheen like finish, however that transfers really pretty on to the skin without any chunky glitter or shimmer particles showing up. 

The pink is definitely a dusky blusher and has a sultry, summery look to it, whereas the bronze is a warm brown bronzer with not orange or red undertones whatsoever. 

They are pretty sheer and silky on application and are velvety smooth to blend. Having said that, they are pigmented and you can actually see the colour on the cheeks unlike some shimmery products out there.

It goes without saying that I will be multitasking with these and popping them on the eyes as well. 

If you've been wanting to get those Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzers, then I have to say that these are better option as you get a tonne of product for around £8 in Superdrug. A fraction of the price compared to its high end dupe eh? 

No you cannot choose, you have to get both of these shades pronto! An FOTD with them shall come soon so keep your eyes peeled.
