Review : Korres Bronzing Powder in 01 Sunglow Light

/ Leave a Comment
I recently got this bronzing powder as part of a Korres set that was 60% off and I like it so much that I took it with me on my vacation! That means a lot if you keep in mind the number of bronzers I own!

Let’s start with the packaging first! This bronzing powder comes in a plastic brown/bronzy compact that’s very sturdy! When you open it up you get a quite big mirror that you could use for touch-ups or even to put your makeup on while on the go! I love compacts that come with a mirror! ;) The only downside of this compact is that you can quite easily leave fingerprints on it and I like my cosmetics to be/look clean! Here’s what it looks like:

On to the actual product now! This bronzing powder is finely milled, it blends easily and it lasts fairly long on my oily skin even without a primer! The interesting part of this bronzer is that if you apply it lightly it looks matte and if you apply it heavily it’s quite shimmery! So, here’s what I do : I apply it quite heavily on my cheeks, so it looks like I have bronzer and highlighter on, and lightly on the rest of my face just to give my skin some color without looking shimmery (I have oily skin) ! Cool huh? ;) It’s quite pigmented, but not extremely pigmented, so don’t worry that you will look like a clown! I apply it with Sigma SS150 Large Powder Brush and it works great! Since this bronzer looks quite shimmery when you don’t apply it lightly, I don’t think you can use it for contouring, unless you’re fair! By the way it doesn’t look orange or muddy on me! Here's an unblended swatch of it taken in natural daylight:

I think this bronzing powder retails for about 15 Euros, but I paid less than 6Euros, since I got it as part of a set with 4 products for 23Euros! You get 11g of product in this compact, which is a fairly good amount, since with most bronzers you get between 8 and 10g! Definitely check it out, especially if you can find a discounted set like that, it’s so worth it! To be honest with you I don’t know if I would purchase it full price, just because I find it a bit pricey, but I would definitely get it again if I could find it on sale!
