Drugstore Must Have: Review and Swatches of Rimmel's Natural Bronzer in Sun Light6:22 PM
If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen this bronzer quite a bit in the last week. It has managed to sneak into all of my FOTDs and won a spot in my weekly favorites post that went up on Friday night.
This has quickly become my favorite drugstore product in the history of ever. The availability of bronzers is vast, so there is no need to drop a ton of money on one. In fact, about $5 is all you need.
I bought this bronzer for a photo contest Influenster was doing and there were three Rimmel products you had to use. This bronzer, the ScandalEyes mascara, and a shade of the Stay Glossy lip gloss. I actually ended up loving all three, but that is a different blog post. This is the bronzer's time to shine.
The finish is matte, which is amazing. Usually matte products can be patchy, very dry, and hard to blend out. That is happily not the case. It applies just as well as a more expensive bronzer, maybe even better. It blends seamlessly and looks very natural, even on my fair skin. At first, it looked orange, which translates to appearing muddy. Luckily that ended up not being an issue. However, I wouldn't recommend being heavy handed with it. Then you might have problems. But that is with any bronzer.
It is also nicely pigmented. I don't have to keep applying and blending and applying some more to get anything to show up. You are left with a kiss of color that lasts all day and doesn't settle into pores or any fine lines.

I am so sorry for getting this post up this late. I haven't gotten much sleep over the last week, on top of having some sinus problems and some fluid retention. And that is why my face looks so puffy in the above pictures.
I ended up falling asleep for two hours this evening, which means I am incredibly exhausted.
But better late than never, right?
I will see you soon!
