Review of the day: The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder

Today we are going to talk about one of the bronzers from The Body Shop make-up collection – Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder.

The producer says the product is enriched with honey and supposed to give your skin “even, bronze matte finish”. The bronzer comes in a nice plastic compact of terracotta color with quite a big mirror, that is convenient for touch-ups when needed. Compact looks very alluring due to the see-through honey-combs that mimic the product pattern inside.

The bronzer is not huge as some bronzing powders that seem popular nowadays, but it is large enough to be convenient to use it with the most common bronzing brushes. One swirl of your brush distributes enough product to use on your cheekbones, forehead or chin due to a very finely milled texture. Even though the bronzer comes in a powder form it is not that powdery and after use your compact remains nice and clean and you won’t get powder all over the place.

The Body Shop compact bronzing powder is presented in three shades – 01. Light matte, 02. Fair matte and 03. Medium matte that allows this range of colors to be suitable for people with different skintones from very fair for a nice bronzed look up to light medium if your are looking for a very light application or just a touch of bronzer on your face. All colors are obviously matte with no shimmer or glitter in the powder that makes it appropriate for all ages and won’t emphasize pores or imperfections on your face.

The color I own is 01. Light matte – and it is a very light brown with grey and rosy undertones to it, that makes it very much suitable for my NW20 skin tone with slightly rosy undertones. The color does not lean red or terracotta so it won’t appear unnaturally red or orange on your face and it helps you to look very healthy and slightly bronzy at the same time.

The product is very comfortable to use as it doesn’t let you take too much product at once and at the same-time remains buildable and blends very well that makes it useful for both beginners and professionals. Moreover, the powder acts equally well on liquid and powder foundations. This is the bronzer I personally reach for for every-day make-up look when I want to look natural and sun-kissed.

I hope that my review is useful for you. If you already own this bronzer, feel free to tell me what you think in the comments below;)

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,
