When it comes to seasons of makeup one season I get excited about is the Summer collections and when I saw Urban Decays Summer Collection and saw that it was all about getting the glowy complexion I knew it was a winner and I am happy to say this bronzer did not disappoint.
First off we need to talk packaging. Has there ever been a more swoon worthy packaging?, I mean it just screams summer with its palm trees and beach like feel. It truly is amazing, packing aside though I have to admit this is one of the nicest bronzer I have ever used and for many reasons but the main reason is the texture.
This powder bronzer is finely milled, pigmented and smooth like butter and giving that great pigmentation they are still easy to build up without going over board leaving the perfect finish to the skin which is matte but still luminous and totally natural.
Having pale skin it can be hard to get that sunkissed look but with this bronzer it is literally fool proof making you look sunkissed in a good way. It literally does look like you have just stepped off a beach. Now as Sunkissed is the palest of the two shades it is suitable for more fairer skin tones but I think it will translate well on slightly more medium skintones. It does however have a warm undertone so if that ain't your thing you might not like this however the other bronzer in the range in the shade 'Bronzed' is meant to have a more yellow undertone.
As I mentioned it is matte so it is perfect for doubling up as a contour and even an eyeshadow so a great all round product especially handy if you are taking it on holiday this summer. I simply love this bronzer and the texture is what has sold me it feels incredible on the skin. As for staying power it lasts on me for around 6-8 hours depending on how oily my skin has gotten throughout the day but overall a decent lasting power.
I highly recommend this bronzer and I have nothing bad to say about it. It has replaced my beloved Nars Laguna which has been a cult fave for over 3 years so that is pretty darn special. I think if your going to pick anything up from the Urban Decay Summer Collection this year it has to be this bronzer, you will not regret it.
So girls does this appeal to you? Are you in the market for a new bronzer?
