Hit or Miss: Catrice Sun Glow Shimmering Bronzing Powder

I have recently been extremely impressed with the Catrice blush that I just had to try the Catrice bronzers, especially at least while there is still summer. And Catrice managed to impress me once again – it is one of the finest powders out there even in comparison with the high-end makeup.

 Catrice Sun Glow Shimmering Bronzing Powder (€4,99) creates a perfect summer tan. The velvety soft pressed powder with fine shimmer pigments ensures a fresh and radiant complexion. With the amazing 3D embossment and two perfectly aligned bronzing colors that blend perfectly. That’s what summer looks like!

This bronzer comes in transparent plastic packaging exactly as a blush. It closes safely but not to tight so you can easily open it. The transparent lid is actually quite convenient as you can see the shade right away. The amount of product you get is 0.31 oz or 9 g that is pretty standard for a compact bronzer. The bronzer has a nice pattern plaited pattern that looks very cute.

The actual bronzer combines two shades of bronzing powder – the lighter and darker one. The lighter part is the biggest and is located in the central part whereas the darker part is a third smaller and is located in the upper and lower parts of the bronzer. This pattern allows you to use either lighter shade alone or the darker mixed with lighter one for more intense color.

The bronzer is positioned as a product for medium skin but to my mind it is pretty light and is more appropriate for those with fair to light skin tones as it may not show up on medium skin tones at all. As I currently have tan skin the lighter shade seems to be just a powder with the darker shade balancing out the lighter shade making it look more like an actual bronzer on me. The color of the bronzer is more orange-terracotta that is very tan-like, with tiniest shimmer.

Overall, I have to say that this bronzer is pretty amazing. It has intensely pigmented, extremely soft and finely milled texture with tiniest shimmer that translates into gorgeous sheen on the skin. I never expected to like it as mush as I actually do. Considering its affordable price, I have to say it is one of the best bronzers on the market if you like more terra-cotta colored bronzers and do not mind a bit of sheen.

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

Dorothea
