'Sunkissed Bronzing' Product Review & Look

Hi Guys,

I was recently sent a few goodies from the lovely people at Sunkissed Bronzing Found Here & asked to create a Sun kissed bridal look of my own, First up i will show you guys a few pictures of the products i received along side swatches of them all aswel :)


Heres the box of goodies i received which consisted of a number of eyeshadows ,mono's , triplets & quads 2 lip palettes, applicators ,mascara's,bronzing pearls and a customisable palette! Unfortunately the handle of the brush that came with the kit was broken so havent included that :(


I want to start off by saying i really love the concept of this little customisable palette you can easily pop whichever combination you like and pop it in your handbag, i usually hate mono eyeshadows but having the option to pop it into a palette really appeals to me!...like so





There's enough space to even pop in a travel sized eyeshadow brush of your choice, perfect!

Now i must point out a con that i experienced with both the palette and the brush i received, this palette did fall apart (one of the hinges broke) quite easily which was very disappointing and the brush aswel, otherwise i would definitely purchase a palette like this as its nice and compact & handbag ready!

On To The Swatches!...




Shadows...
First up are all the eyeshadows!




I really loved the plum set and the bronze on the end, i used both together in my look to create a plum twist on a classic bronze smokey eye!


My personal favs are actually the mono's the pigmentation and colours were great and i love the massive size of the pans!


Lips...


I received two mini palettes here one of which seemed to be glosses and the other lip colours!

Last up are the jumbo sized Bronzing pearls!
They gave a lovely subtle bronze glow perfect for the cheekbones & as a highlight!

The Look i created with the products...


To create this look i used eyeshadow palettes 1,2 & 3 using the copper gold colours as a base, added depth to the crease with the darkest shade in palette 4 & highlighted my inner eye area with the light buttery colour in the same palette.

I then decided i wanted to add a pop of plum to the crease to bring some more emphasis to the eyes in this look, for that i used both the darkest colour in palette 3 and mono shadow 9.

For the skin i used the bronzing pearls on the outer parameters of the face and added a little of mono shadow 8 on top on my blush to add a tiny bit of glow to the cheeks.

Finished up by blotting on the middle shade in the lip colour palette followed by a touch of the last bronze colour in the gloss palette and voila!

As always i hope you guys enjoyed the post you can check out sunkissed bronze  on twitter here and their website here :)

With Love
