Review : Rimmel Sun Shimmer Maxi Bronzing Powder in 002 Sun Goddess

This is a huge, gigantic bronzer!! Seriously.. it's the biggest bronzer I've ever seen so far! And it's beautiful too! I really like this bronzer!

Ok, let's start with the packaging, which is a huge bronze-y compact made of plastic with a clear lid, which is great, because you can see the color inside! It's a simple compact, but it feels nice and sturdy! Now it's the time to scare you with a picture of it lol (click on the pic for larger view...yeah to scare you even more!) :

When you open it up you get a beautiful bronzer with a pretty sun pattern on it! Isn't that cute?

On to the actual product now! This bronzer is a bit powdery (nothing over the top though), but hey it's a pressed powder product, it can't be finely milled like a loose powder product! On the back of the compact it says "Shimmering bronzer to illuminate your face and body with a sunkissed glow"... Either I'm blind or Rimmel did a mistake with this bronzer's description, because it's a matte one, I don't see any shimmer or glitter in the pan or when I use it! Since it's matte it's great for contouring, it blends easily and it lasts pretty long on my oily skin!  Here's a swatch in natural daylight:

As you can see it has just a little bit of glow when heavily swatched, but on my face it doesn't have any glow, it's matte! Although it looks dark and scary in the pan, it's actually a nice medium color! I really like it, especially for a light dusting all over the face! :)

I got this bronzer off Ebay for about £4 and I don't know if it's still available in stores, because I couldn't find it on Rimmel's official website! If you can get your hands on it, definitely buy it! I forgot to tell you that you get 23g (!!!) of product! ;)
