Isn’t this bronzer the most beautiful thing you have ever seen?! Those 4 shades are so amazingly high quality and give the best finish on the skin when swished altogether and applied to the face.

I love Clarins products, they are well made, of high quality and aim to make you even more beautiful than you already are -just like my blog! I love their eye make up remover – read about that here; as well as their lip glosses, balms and face creams.

I love the fact that Clarins release a limited edition summer bronzer every year. No two years bronzers are ever the same, however they are all just as perfect as the one that arrived before. I picked up this bronzer about 2 months ago and it was the product that made me think oh my gosh I need to start a blog and tell everyone how amazing it actually is. so here we are 2 months later.

This bronzer is part of the Clarins ‘Sunkissed Summer Collection’. This bronzer is £30 & its worth every penny of your hard earned money. Its basically a blusher, bronzer, eye quad and body glow in one. The size of this compact is huge and it has plenty of product to last you for lots of summers.

The central blush shade is a beautiful peach. This looks amazing on fair or tanned skin – leaving you with the right amount of flush in your cheeks!. The blush is highly pigmented also so you don’t need to use a lot.

Around the blusher are 2 matte shades, perfect for bronzing and contouring the skin. One matte shade is medium, the other bordering on a deep brown, but both beautiful when used together to give definition to the skin.

The final shade is a shimmer bronzing powder. I use this on my face and on my body to really give you an extra glow. I like to use the Kiko large powder brush for this as it picks up just the right amount of product and dusts my skin with the product evenly! (unfortunately this was a limited edition brush so is not on sale anymore, however any good bronzing brush would work).

I use this compact everyday. I think the case is really pretty and robust and it has a huge mirror inside so perfect for taking in your handbag or in your case if your off on holiday!

I would also recommend this as a really thoughtful gift for someone who loves make up and Clarins. Its something very different but very beautiful so whoever you buy it for will instantly love it and you!

    It looks like so much product for your money! I’ve always used NARS Laguna Bronzer as there is no caking whatsoever and it pulls a beautiful, buildable cinnamon tone on my NC42 skin, but I think I’m going to have to out Clarins next time I’m on an empty! Thank you for your post x
