Tried and Tested: Bourjois Bronzing Primer

I am a big fan of Bourjois bronzers and this Bronzing Primer (£9.99) is no exception. 

This is basically a cream bronzer that you can wear alone or with foundation. I've been playing around with it for a while but only recently wore it properly. It is absolutely beautiful. If you are after a sun kissed glow, this is going to be your best friend. I like to wear it on top of foundation, placing it where I would typically put bronzer. Through trial and error, I've found the best way to apply it is with a stiff brush. I like to use the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. 

I dab the brush into the product and then dab it onto the skin where I would naturally bronze. After all the dabbing, I use the same brush to blend it all out. I am absolutely in love with this bronzer! There is talk of it being a dupe for the Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel (£32) but I haven't tried that one so I can't comment on whether it's a dupe. That being said, I would recommend going for the Bourjois one first, especially if you're new to cream bronzers. It's a fraction of the price so it's not a huge investment for something you're unsure about. 

In terms of the lasting power, it lasts all day. I think it's suitable for all skin types because although it's a cream, it doesn't have a dewy finish. It's quite matte but it gives you a glow. I'm hoping that makes sense! 

To sum up, this is a great bronzer. It's natural but gives you a beautiful sun kissed look that's perfect for summer! 

What cream bronzers do you recommend?

Thanks for reading,
