Top 5 Bronzers/Contour Colours

1. Bourjois Delice de Soleil. 2. The Body Shop Baked Bronzer in 02. 3. Agnes B duo. 4. Cargo in Coral Beach. 5. NYX Blush in Taupe.

I do occasionally enjoy a bit of bronzer here and there, but I tend to be more of a blush girl so I only really use bronzers for a bit of cotouring (usually, anyway).
I have tried a lot of other bronzers in my time (including of course Benefit's Hoola which used to be a firm favourite and NARS Laguna which everyone seems to love).
Because I don't tend to LOVE bronzer anymore, I am not sure if I would spend over say £25 on one but never say never, right?

Without further ado these are my top 5/most used bronzers of the moment.
(If you can't be bothered with the rest of the post, the swatches are all above as I am sure you have already noticed!)

Bourjois Delice de Soleil Bronzing Powder

  • A warm toned, slightly orangey bronzer. 
  • Matt, with a bit of glitter in the pan but it does not translate onto the skin.
  • Has the signature Bourjois cake mixture smell.

The Body Shop Baked Bronzer in 02 (Warm Glow)

  • A shimmery, bronze/highlight/blush (all in one) colour.
  • Perfect for paler girls, or as a highlight for girls with darker skin.
  • Creates a lovely radiant effect on the skin.

Agnes B. 'b. Sunny!' Powder Duo - Tan & Radiance

  • A baby pink blush & slightly shimmery bronzer.
  • When combined creates a beautiful natural looking tan colour.
  • The pink helps cancel out any orangey tones in the bronzer colour.

Cargo Blush in Coral Beach

  • Although described as a blush, this contains highlight/blush/bronzer colours.
  • Has a really refined shimmer throughout.
  • Really great multipurpose product.

NYX Blush in Taupe

  • Unlike the other bronzers, this is a cool toned taupe colour which is great for a natural contour colour.
  • Silky smooth texture.
  • Matte/velvety.

Thanks for reading! What are your favourite bronzers?

  1. My Laguna has nearly run out and I honestly don't think it's worth the dollla. The NYX one looks the best but think it might have to be Bourjois for me living in little ol' England x

    1. Yeah I mean it's OKAY but it's probably best for tanned goddesses who can't live without bronzer and THAT AIN'T ME. I ordered NYX when I was in Newcastle, they have a UK website :)

  2. Nice blog! I'm more of a bronzer person, the cargo one seems nice. I'm following you now, please check out my blog and if you like it follow me too! :)

    1. Yeah I really like Cargo in general, their products tend to be of a nice quality :)

  3. Love this post! Bourjois' is amazing :)

  5. I love the bourjous bronzer, really want to try that NYX shade! xo

    1. I got it on the NYX UK website but shipping is pretty steep :(

  6. Aw I really love the NYX one! It looks like the perfect shade. Too bad that they don't sell NYX where I live :((


    1. It is really good! You might be able to find it online, that's how I got it :)
