bourjois maxi delight bronzer: £8.99*

Summer is getting closer and closer and I've decided its about time I bronze up. Today I decided to give the Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer a whirl all in the name of summer glow. It's an absolutely gorgeous bronzer, it really warms up the face. It's suitable for an all over glow and suitable for a subtle contour along the cheekbones. It's very pigmented but if you use a light hand and build up rather than apply too heavily it looks natural and glowy.

I have the shade 02 which is perfect for olive and tanned skin, it gives the right tones on my skin to flatter rather than look muddy or dull. It's a nice quite orange toned bronzer with a noticeable shimmer and glitter going through it. When swatched I found the glitter to be very noticeable but once blended onto the face it is barely visible. The orange tones wont suit all skintones but its very flattering on my currently pale olive toned skin. While I don't like scented products the compact has a subtle scent to it which reminds me of sun tan lotion or coconuts. I can't quite put my finger on it though!

At £8.99 it's a great deal for such a large compact and I'd highly recommend getting your hands on it once it launches in July 2013. I reckon it's going to come in other tones so there might be a more suitable one for lighter skintones. This one really wouldnt be suitable for pinker toned skin or pale ones as it is on the darker side. However if you're olive toned like me and need something to add some warmth to the face, this one if for you. I cant fault it! I've been let down by Bourjois Bronzers before, I'm looking at you infamous "chocolate bronzer", which I found to be so dry I could barely use it! The Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer is a really lovely drugstore bronzer and a perfect budget summer buy.

  15. Looks lovely for summer, currently using MAC matte bronzer and this looks slightly familiar and half the price. May try it out.

  24. this looks gorgeous and as a newbie to bronzers (i've never actually owned a proper sized one before...) it seems perfect for me! the review is very positive and the price certainly wouldn't break the bank! oh i'm so excited for it to be launches so i can check out all the shades (although i'm sure this one will be for me) and get my hands one!
