Review: Bourjois Delice De Poudre - Bronzing Powder

When this powder came out on the market I was definitely intrigued. Any cosmetic product that is food related is a win win really, especially if it's chocolate. Though I was ever so interested the packaging really put me off purchasing, it just looks cheap and boring. There's no swish design, no small mirror, not even a little plastic brush, instead just a cardboard flip with tons of writing and a small rectangular quad block of the bronzer.


The only reason I ended up purchasing this was purely because I found it on offer a little while ago and decided I might just try it out and see if it could replace my trusty Soap and Glory Solar Powder. I chose the shade 51 as it's the lighter of the two available, testing it on my hand it still seemed a little dark but I still went ahead. I was actually excited to try this bronzer, although it doesn't look impressive it smells divine, similar to hot chocolate.

On first application I was actually quite impressed, though the first brush stroke tends to be heavy it then blends to a natural shade. It's an easy to wear bronzer for the entire face yet can be built up for a more intense colour, making it a decent contouring product although the small amount of golden shimmer shown on heavy amounts can become a deterrent for that. The consistency is rather pleasing as it's rather creamy compared to many bronzers that are heavy on excess and fall out.

Overall I thoroughly enjoy this bronzer, it's very subtle making it great for adding a little colour to your daily look. I just wish the packaging was improved.
