Sunkissed Bronzing Glimmer Compact

Everyone knows it by now - I am a self confessed bronzer addict. I just love it. One thing I don't have a huge amount of though, is glittery, shimmery, sparkly, fun bronzers. I'm a bit of a matte girl. But not so long ago I realise that sometimes, using a bronzer with a shimmer would save me having to use highlighters to get the same effect. And so I bring to you, the Sunkissed Bronzing Glimmer Compact. 


Golly gosh when this turned up at my door I was so super excited. I mean, just look at it! It is b-e-a-u-t-iful. With five shades ranging from a gorgeous highlight, to deep bronzes, this gorgeous compact has everything you could want in a fun and flirty, sunkissed look.

I have to admit. This is the first bronzer of it's kind that I have used. I am used to single shades; solid, compact colours. Whereas this is several shades in one. At first I was a bit like, "Ohhh, how do I use this to its best then?" You can use these shades either singularly, or altogether. I prefer altogether. 

The extra lovely factor about this glimmer compact is that you don't have to just use it for your face. It's perfectly fine for use all over your body too! Although that's not something I have tried yet. Makeup wise, I love this. I love this as a highlight, I love this as a bronzer. It isn't too much. What I mean is, you can happily use this anywhere on your face and it isn't overpowering. You need a light hand, for the slightest touch, and application is super easy. Its soft, blend-able, but doesn't break apart when you touch it with a brush.

On the subject of brushes, this actually came with a brush from Sunkissed Bronzing. Unfortunately, I decided after much inspection not to use the brush, as it seemed to be shedding at the slightest touch. But any powder, bronzer or contour brush will work perfectly with this. I have liked using my Real Techniques Powder Brush, and Contour Brush!

  10. I really like the Sunkissed products. I haven't had a bad experience yet. This bronzer looks lovely. I like that you can use them all together and individually to highlight. :)

    I'll have to look out for this one! :) xx

  11. This looks gorgeous! As I was reading through I was ready to recommend the Collection Shimmer Mosaic Bronzer as it's a velvety, shimmer product but amazed to see this one is great value also, was expecting to see a £25+ price tag... what a bargain!

    Thanks for the post :) x

  30. I have this and recently purchased their Sunkissed Metalic Bronze Blush which is one of those 'baked' rounded products. I must admit that I absolutely love this range for the colour pay off and the price! If any of you have a bodycare shop nearby, they sell these products even cheaper than ebay. I think the product here was £1.99 and the Metalic blush is under £2.00 as well. Very good value products.
