Festively Bronzed - Soap & Glory Wonderbronze

This was definitely one of those, 'I'm here buying Christmas presents so I'll pick something up for myself' kind of purchases. As far as I'm aware of, you can't buy Soap & Glory products in Finland, so I thought I'd have a little browse of the cosmetic stand whilst I was in my local Boots. As soon as I clapped eyes on this beauty, I knew it was coming home with me. 

I'm a serious magpie when it comes to all things sparkly and this shimmery, bronzer/blusher brick was no exception. The shade is Sundaze and if I can remember correctly, there were a couple of other similar products on the Soap & Glory shelf too. This, however, is right up my street. There are five separate shades which make up this bronzer/blusher. I've swatched them individually and also blended them together to show you what you can get from this gorgeous product.

There's everything from a pale, off white shade to a deep coppery bronze. Is it just me, or does anyone else think that these shades would also double us as seriously beautiful, shimmery eye shadows? Blended together, the outcome is flawless. I absolutely love it. It's shimmery, but not overly so and gives you the perfect, sun-kissed, bronzed goddess glow without you looking like you've been in a fight with a bag of soil and a pot of glitter. It's b.e.a.u.tiful and I can guarantee that I'll be rocking this right through the festive season. 

I don't even need to really mention the packaging. It has the usual Soap & Glory retro vibe to it as well as being a sturdy little package with a generous-sized mirror inside too.

Here's the Wonderbronze on my face... and I'll make a note of the other products too, because I'm good to you!
