Mini Haul :: Random Trip to the Mall

I went to the mall to exchange a product at Sephora. I got the Benefit POREfessional primer which I love, but I have to many primers, so I wanted to exchange for something I needed. Another Cleansing oil! I also ran into Neiman Marcus and picked up 2 fun products too!

The Goods

  • Tatcha Cleansing Oil
  • La Mer Cleansing Gel
  • Guerlain Terracotta Pause d’ete Bronzer

Ok, I wanted to try out La Mers cleanser forever and since I just ran of my cleanser and figured I would give it a go! Also I wasn’t planning on getting this bronzer but I walked past it when I was paying for the cleanser and I was like what is that!!?

LOOK AT THAT!

So excited to use this! UGH I love Guerlain!

 

My Favorite Bronzers!

My complexion is fast improving but it isn’t there yet. So for foundations or any base make up really I need decent/high coverage. Since I am a pasty white any and all base make ups usually completely remove any sort of color I’d have on my face, so I need a good bronzer to help me not look so ghoulish!

I have a lot of different brands of bronzers, but I generally stick to these guys more then any.

Givenchy Poudre Bonne Mine Healthy Glow Powder

Color 2 Douce Croisière – light tan

s1411370-main-hero

This has a nice color for my skin tone, and I love the slightly shimmery finish of it. Has a very light feel. I usually use a big powder brush when I apply this. It has nice long wear, and doesn’t feel heavy or get cakey. I also love its blendability!

Urban Decay – Naked Flushed

 Color Palette Native

When I first saw this I wasn’t to sure, but it was on sale and I thought MEH why not. Well,I fell in LOVE with this set! I use the highlighter all the time, and the blush I use a lot as well, but that bronzer, so good! It gives me a very slight sun kissed look without making it look like I have to much makeup on. I use a mini kabuki brush for this.

Rimmel Natural Bronzer

 Color Sunshine

I really like this one (well obviously! It’s on this list!) But I do have a few specific reasons why A- because it is so affordable. and B because when I use this I will also use it as an eyeshadow and I love that look so much! I find if I want a simple easy look for just around the house, or to go get groceries or a quick bite to eat, using bronzer as an eye color as well as face makeup gives me a polished effortless look. This bronzer is the one I usually do this with because the color is so flattering for my skintone, and for my brown eyes.

BareMinerals Warmth All Over Face Color

MY FIRST BRONZER! Seriously, I still have it too! this stuff lasts forever and goes such a long way. I initially thought the color would be to much for me but it looks so nice on! Sometimes I will layer this with my Urban Decay one for a more chiseled look!

I will be ending this list with my Holy Grail Bronzer!!!! ❤

Guerlain Teracotta Bronzing Powder

Color 3

Love love LOOOOVE

Everything about this I just love. I love how easy it is to apply. I love the color. I love how it might look too dark for me, but it matches so GOOD! I could throw away all my make up and just live with a nice foundation, mascara and this bronzer forever!!!!!

I probably own about 15 bronzers but these are definitely my faves! ❤
