Revlon Photoready Bronzer

Recently I was given the Revlon Photoready Bronzer in Bronze and Chic  in a goody bag after covering the Revlon Backstage for Antonio Berardi. Even though I'm fairly tanned I never really wear bronzer, however my skin was looking a bit pale and didn't quite match my body so I decided to give this a quick try. I was very pleased with the results!

This has to be one of the best low end bronzer's i've tried ever. It's a beautiful warm toned bronzer that has a lovely matte finish. The shades are pigmented and really smooth and soft. I swirl my brush in the powder to pick up all the colours and tap on the side of the packaging and then apply to my face either to contour my cheeks or as an all over bronze. It gives a really lovely soft bronze glow that isn't too orange or too cool for my skin Also as it has no shimmer in it doesn't look gritty or shiny just brightening and giving the face the right ammount of colour. My only gripe would be the really bulky unnecessary packaging as it's twice as large as it needs to be. Although this is mainly to house the brush that comes with it but the brush itself is not really all that suitable for bronzer application.

On the whole I really love this bronzer and I'm glad I tried it out on a whim. It's been a makeup staple for me ever since I got it and I think it might even sneak into my favourites for this month! I highly recommend checking this out if you're looking for a warm toned well priced bronzer from the drugstore! I cant seem to find it anywhere in the UK quite yet, it might be a recent release or something that's coming up soon so it might be worth keeping an eye out!

  1. I wouldn't call Revlon 'low end' - bit insulting!

    I think this is due out soon as they've released some other bits from the Photo Ready range recently.

  12. It's a shame I recently bought the Bourgois chocolate Bronzer (loving it XD) so I feel kinda bad for buying yet another bronzer, but it seems so worth it!

    And let me tell you that you look very victorias-secret-ish on that picture ;) hope that counts as a compliment for people from the UK ♥

  33. am always looking for a matte bronzer so will check this out as soon as it comes to the uk xxx

  34. this bronzer looks so so gorgeous and whilst i don't actually use bronzer that often (i think i've only ever owned one in my life), i think this has convinced me to look into putting it in my make up routine. i like that it's matte and it does look really pigmented on you, so fingers crossed it would have the same effect on my skin! definitely going to have a look out for it when it comes to the UK!
