I figure I could use a little sunshine in my life, as the recent week or so has been nothing but snow, snow and more snow. I got this product probably last summer and it still doesn't have much of a dent in it (cut to not-so-savory picture of what it looks like inside after many months of being molested by my stippling brush) and I love it. Plus isn't it so cute?! It looks fabulous on your vanity!
It is a very..interesting consistency that is hard to describe unless you have it. It is a creamy, dry somewhat hardish mousse consistency and goes to buff on the skin providing a beautiful warm glow. It is not shimmery at all, but still lends s life to the skin since it isn't a traditional powder.
That picture doesn't look so pretty, but it is really beautiful on the skin. You can use it in many different ways. As a base under makeup, a base where the sun would hit before powder bronzer if you want to be really bronze, and a bronzer or a cheek color on its own. It also is nice for contour, especially in hollow of the cheek. I like using a stippling duo fibre or "skunk" brush to apply it (the ones with the two colors, black and then white at the tips), and I think its the best kind of brush to give the most natural look. I like the MAC 187 or the Sephora Professional (the silver handle) one the best.
It's the closest to the tropics I'm getting at the moment!
I'll leave you with a pic of the view out my great room window. It looks pretty, but I can't wait for all of it to be gone!
