Sun Kissed With Just One Swipe!
Bronzers from Physicians Formula
Inspired by Beauty Addict's Fake Bake Month, I am going to dish today about some new summer bronzers from Physicians Formula that I received in the mail.
I am a pale girl who has not seen the sun in any serious way since the early 90's. I do not sun bathe nor do I use any self tanners. Bronzers used to scare the pants off me until Estee Lauder's Tom Ford Bronzer. This was the product that made me realize that bronzers were not my enemy. They could be kind and give me a natural and appealing sun kissed glow.
With a few swipes from my skunk brush, my face appears to look well rested and healthy with no ill effects from the sun.
It is a miracle in a compact.
Physicians Formula has an impressive roster of bronzer products. They have a variety of mineral bronzers, wet/dry bronzers, multi-colored bronzers and a bronzer that contains SPF20.
Magic Mosaic Multi-Color Custom Bronzer 33846 $12.95 (picture to the right)
This is a combination of bronze shades that resembles fish scales in the compact. It is has some shimmer and gives a natural looking glow. This is a bronzer that you can control based on your needs. One swipe of the dark shade and you can look like you vacationed in Belize.
Jungle Fever in Leopard #3281 $11.95
It is practically too cute to use but I swiped it. This one has some shimmer that has not been captured by the photograph. The golden base makes it wearable for pale tones.
Powder Palettes Multi-Colored Bronzer $12.95
#2718 Healthy Glow is my favorite. It has cooler shades of bronze and pink.
#1441 Bronzer has warmer shades of peach and terracotta
#3869 Light Bronzer is a less intense version of #1441
The compacts have a secret compartment for a brush or powder puff.
Bronze Gems Matte & Bright Bronzer, Highlighter and Eye Shadow Powder for $12.95
There are three shades: #2819 Healthy Glow Bronzer, #2818 Peachy Glow Bronzer(gives a lovely apricot-like glow and the warm pink shade looks great on the eyes!) is and #2672 Light Bronzer(perfect for pale skin).
This is a handy dual finish bronzer that includes a mirror and brush.
The smiling sun face bronzer is called Summer Eclipse in Sunlight. It is a blend of pearlescent gold and warm bronze shades that gives you a deep and rich color. This was a little too dark for me but it was the sun face that got me.
The Retro Mosaic Bronzer #3848 $12.95
The actual powder resembles and feels like suede. It is 5 bronze shades in a very vintage looking pressed powder compact. This gives you a deep coppertone tan without the sun damage.
It is made with Italian talc and includes a mirror and powder brush.
