I was recently asked by Zoe (@londonlipgloss on twitter) to review these two products after replying to her blogpost asking for somebody to review these two products from the Bourjois Summer Collection as they weren't for her. I soon piped up as I love Bourjois and their infamous chocolate bronzer has been my only bronzer (and the same box) since I started wearing make up. Zoe picked little ol' me and my blog to review them...excited wasn't even the word.
I have had these products for a while now and have used the powder daily and tested the spray, so what did I think?
First off, I love the packaging. The dark brown just looks expensive and with the hint of green in the labelling it reminds me of mint chocolate. The bronzing spray is just like any normal spray can, lightweight and durable. The powder packaging is a little different to anything I have owned before. The lid is only held on by a small "knob" which provides the swivel of the mirror (I shall explain later) this to me doesn't feel as secure as a normal lid but it hasn't broken...yet? The mirror is MASSIVE and I love that I could easily do a full face of makeup in it. I am yet to use the brush, because I don't tend to reapply my makeup during the day I don't have to carry it around with me and use my "proper" brushes when putting it on.
The product itself is really nice and matches the high quality of all the other Bourjoir products I have tried and used. The shade I have is shade 12 fair/medium skin which is the perfect match for me, even though I use the darker colour of the chocolate bronzer (shade 52). I tried to take pictures of it on my face but my camera just wasn't playing ball :(. The colour is paler than the chocolate bronzer as shown in the picture below.
For me the chocolate bronzer is best for when I am tanned and when I am pale I will use this one. There is a slight shimmer, more so than the chocolate one but this does not transfer fully to the face. There is a nice sheen but nothing glittery at all.
