Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder

If you had asked me a year ago if bronzing powder was a frequent feature in my everyday makeup routine I would've probably laughed right in your face. However, I have grown to love the stuff and now can't bear to part with it!

I bought the Bobbi Brown bronzing powder about six months ago and as you can see I've barely dug into the pan. The reviews on this were what truly sold the product for me - it's been top rated and classed as a must-have, and you know how much I'm swayed by other people's experiences. The bronzing powder is described as a soft matte, silky-smooth bronzer that instantly gives the skin the look of a natural tan. I purchased it in the lightest colour available (Golden Light) for the desired lightly tanned look.

Now, I sometimes find bronzers really tricky to deal with, mainly because I'm quite fair-skinned and I really don't want to come off looking like I've been completely tango-ed. From the swatch above you can see that it is quite an orange powder, but once easily blended it leaves my skin with a lovely golden tan. I used to use this for contouring only (with a Real Techniques contour brush), however with the recent - and somewhat short lived - summer weather I've used it more on the parts of my face which would naturally tan so basically the forehead, tops of the cheeks, nose and chin; ever so lightly applied and really blended into the skin. I love it, you honestly don't need much at all to make a huge impact. The price is the higher end and I think that it's worth every penny. It's an incredibly versatile product that lasts all day without reapplication. Not only this but it doesn't feel cakey on the skin at all.

I think it's safe to say that this product is now an essential in my makeup bag. I cannot wait to try out Chanel's Soleil Tan de Chanel for a chance to compare the powder texture of Bobbi Brown with the newer gel-cream bronzing formula. 

What do you guys think about bronzers? Essential products or unnecessary and simply forgettable? Which are your favourites?
