I have a Lancaster Bronzer compact which I happily used all last summer - it was very shimmery but (I thought) not too much. Until I was looking at some photos from last summer and I realised I looked like a shiney mad person .
So I've just bought Benefit Hula (sp?) matte bronzer - and it is awful. Whatever I do with it, it either doesn't notice or makes me look like I've had a fight with an oxo cube.
Is there a good inbetween semi-matte version of a bronzer out there?
I use Nars Laguna when I haven't been in the sun and Hoola when I have. I've realised Hoola is a proper fake tan for the face. You have to go for it and put it all over like a translucent powder and build it up. Now I have a tan it looks good.
I have one bronzer powder (not really a bronzer person TBH)
Laura Geller- (Blush & Brighten in Honey Dipped) Has a tiny bit of sparkle in it (but not so much that I look like I've escaped from a 6 yo Girls Fairy 'n' Glitter Party) and enough to lift me out of the Dip Me in Dog Dirt look.
But I live in Essex- a bit of sparkle is Compulsary if you live in the hallowed grounds of Essex.
