BOURJOIS 'CHOCOLATE' BRONZER REVIEW




Hey lovelies! I'm reviewing another Bourjois product for you all today, this time, the infamous 'Chocolate' Bronzer. I'm seriously late on the bandwagon with this one as this has been a cult blogger product for ages now, but as I mentioned in my review of one of Bourjois' new lip crayons, I hadn't really tried many products from the brand before now! So, when Bourjois was on 3 for 2 in Boots, I just knew this baby had to come home with me so I could see what all the fuss was about. So, my beloved Soleil Tan De Chanel was put (lovingly) into a drawer, to make room for this beauty in my every day makeup bag.

I really love the colour of this bronzer, some have said it's a bit orangey but I think it's quite natural looking (unless the fact that I'm an Essex Girl is altering my orange detection skills!!). I did buy the lightest shade, which is plenty dark enough for me and I do think had I have bought the darker one, I may have ended up looking a bit more Sugar Hut than sunkissed, but on my skintone, this shade is lovely. It's really easy to blend out too, making it perfect for contouring, as I don't end up with cheek stripes, but also for all over bronzing. It can be blended out a lot for a more subtle bronze, or built up for a night out/ if I'm just feeling a bit pale!! It's also pretty long lasting too which is great, with a lot of other powder bronzers, I feel as though they've disappeared by the end of the day which isn't any fun. I like that is has a very subtle shimmer, so it gives you a glow all over, but is still fab for contouring - yay for multi-purpose products!

Also, can we take a minute to look at this bronzer. It's shaped like chocolate, luckily it doesn't look as if you've smeared chocoalte all over your face, but it smells like you have! It has a sweet, chocolately scent which I absolutely love. The scent is only noticeable when you're using the product and in the pan, so no need to worry about smelling like chocolate all day! The packaging is also very compact, so it's fab for taking out with you or for travelling. One thing I would say though, is I'd love for it to have a little mirror in the lid, though this would probably up the cost, which is not so fun.

Overall, I'd thoroughly recommend this bronzer, if I even need to as so many of you have probably already tried it!! But in case you haven't and like me had been putting off giving it a go, I'd definitely say give it a try - you might fall in love with it too!

  4. This is my absolute favourite bronzer and have used this and only this one for over 3 years now! It really is long lasting, I use if everyday and probably only purchase one every 8ish weeks! I so agree- a mirror in the lid would be amazing! I’d definitely pay the extra!xx

  5. I tried this a while back but even the light one was far too dark on me. It actually doesn't look as dark here though, so I might check it out again in case I had a bad one! xx

  19. Great review :) Us Essex girls have to watch out for these orange products so we dont live up to the essex stereotype haha. I've never swatched this but I'm always looking out for a multifunctional product for bronzing and contouring :)
