No one does bronzers like Guerlain. That’s my conclusion. I love bronzers because they help to create a very dimensional look and to the pale porcelain skin it adds a little bit of color. Also it is one of the niftiest little products around as it gives your skin an instant summer time glow – without harmful sun exposure.
Guerlain offers lot of choices and nice shades when it comes to bronzers and yes with an amazingly gorgeous packing. This year Guerlain released 4 new shades to the collection of bronzers and I couldn’t resist of buying one. It comes in 6 different shades, but I went for the shade 03 Natural Brunettes.
It is such a gorgeous product and versatility is the key feature of having the four quadrants. Each quarter has a slightly different tone and texture to last. What I love about this bronzer is that it comes with 4 shades inside; two darker shades and two lighter shades. It gives me a choice to go for a heavier contouring or just a light one.Pigments are light, very easy to blend and effortlessly buildable for a more defined look. Bronzer range contains four matte shades with blend together to match every skin tones for an authentic looking tan. Texture wise it is velvety smooth and very, very finely milled.
From the swatches you can see that the product is the direct illustration of its name. You can use this bronzer in all four seasons because it offers a color range that suits the summer to the fall. This perfectly works well for all women who find the tone of their complexion and bronzing needs changes along the seasons.
What I adore most about this bronzer is that it’s not one dimensional. The shades are adaptable and can be used on the apples of the cheeks as a blusher and below the cheek line as a bronzer. It can also be used to sculpt the nose and highlight the eyes and chin area. Plus you can use the colors separately to contour and shape different parts of the face: the darker shade for the cheekbones and jaw line, the lighter top shades for all-over color, and the bottom right shade as a highlighter. Alternatively, you can always just swirl them together for a lovely bronze glow. Now that’s the beauty of this palette.
Best thing is that the bronzer doesn’t make you look muddy. Product is great for those who are normally daunted by bronzers. Complete year-round versatility and it is a definite must have in the makeup bag. The packaging is strong, sturdy and actually quite weighty and has a nice refreshing scent. This is a great bonus as you would want to splurge on high end products which are versatile and long lasting.
