Soap & Glory Solar Powder Bronzer

Bronzer - £11
Being on the fairer side of the skin tone scale, I struggle to find a bronzer that's not over obvious, dirty looking and adds natural looking warmth. I've read quite a few hit or miss reviews on Soap & Glory's cosmetics line but when I was looking for something new to try in a 3 for 2 offer, I decided to try this on a whim, and I am so glad I did!

I really like the packaging. Its a pretty solid cardboard compact, with a mirror in the top to help with on-the-go application, but I think over time it may get a little battered if you keep this in your bag. I am a huge fan of Soap & Glory's vintage marketing and find the product names to be  fun.

The product itself is split into two main parts with a matte darker grey-toned and a matte lighter shade. There is a small shimmer section in the middle where the 'S&G' is but this is very subtle, so subtle in fact it doesn't show up on camera when its swatched. I either swirl the brush around the mix the shades for a warm glow, or use the darker shade alone as a contour. The powder is silky smooth and  once applied this lasts around 7-8 hours,

Because of its grey-toned matte shades, this creates the perfect natural contour as well as adding some warmth for fairer skin tones such as mine. I would really recommend trying this out as a great bronzer that won't make you look like a walking Wotsit!

Have you tried this bronzer? What do you use to add warmth to your face?
