I heard lots of great things about the Rimmel London Natural Bronzer. I just happened to be browsing around my local drugstore and saw that they were on sale at $4.99 (regular price: $9.99). So, I decided to give it a go and join the bandwagon of contouring! This is my first bronzer and may I say, I LOVE IT!
However, prior to purchase, I had to pick a shade. Thinking the shades on the shelves were in order from lightest to darkest, I realized there was no order. Talk about disorganization! I was hoping there were testers on display, I was out of luck. I had to trust my eyes on this one.
When I finally found the shade I thought I was looking for, I peaked at the rack below and noticed they were the matte finish and not the shimmer finish I was holding (Sunshimmer ShimmeringMaxi Bronzer). I’m a natural girl and I like my makeup neutral. Adding shimmer on my face is the last thing I want. Guess which one I picked up?
There are four shades available to provide you with that perfect sun-kissed tan and a radiant new glow: Sun Light, Sun Bronze, Sun Glow, and Sun Dance. I debated between Sun Light and Sun Bronze since both seem to match my pale skin tone. I ended up with Sun Light, which had a pink undertone.
I may be a bit bias as this is my first bronzer, there is nothing I can compare it to. From what I am experiencing, it does what it claims to do – provide a radiant glow. I mainly use it for contour purposes and the formulation is amazing! It provides a natural look, great buildable pigmentation, and blends easily. I will look into other brands in the near future to compare. But for now, the Rimmel London Natural Bronzer is a part of my daily makeup routine.
