The Ultimate Everyday Bronzer

Clarins Summer Bronzing & Blush Compact – 01 Sunset Glow

Discovering “the perfect bronzer” for everyday use is a very special thing.

For a short while, I was struggling to choose which bronzer to use whilst getting ready. Some bronzers are warm in tone whilst others are just a little too ashy for my own liking. I want a bronzer that will subtly add warmth to the complexion whilst also adding a little structure too. I have also found that whilst pigmentation is often seen as a good thing, pigmented bronzers and blushers are not always ideal, especially for everyday use.

The Clarins Summer Bronzing & Blush Compact is a tremendous product in my opinion. The packaging is pretty, a little weighty but also very handy to have because of that large circular mirror on the inside lid.

I really like to take a large fluffy angled brush and literally swirl it all over the three powders in this compact. Together these shades give the complexion a lovely flush of warmth, a touch of effortless shimmer and a nice pop of pink to the cheeks.

You can, of course, use each shade individually.

The light “almost banana toned shade” makes a lovely highlight. You can gently apply this to the top of the cheekbones for a very natural look or alternatively sweep this over your under eyes to set your concealer in place. Out of the three powders in this compact, the banana shade is the most shimmery, although for good reason. I am a big fan of the natural touch of shimmer that these powders add to my complexion.

The cool rose toned blush adds the most natural pop of colour to the cheeks. I think this is a beautiful shade for a fairer skin tone and one that I really enjoy using on an everyday basis.

Last but certainly not least we have the star of the show. The Clarins Summer Bronzer adds the perfect hue of warmth to a fair skin tone in my opinion. I love the effortless flush that this bronzer gives whilst the subtle finely milled shimmer gives a lovely natural glow to the complexion.

You can apply this compact with ease knowing that all three of the powders will apply evenly, smooth and perfectly blended. The powders are silky in texture whilst also perfectly pigmented. If you are looking for the ultimate everyday bronzer that you can just swirl your brush into and literally sweep across your face then you should definitely check this one out at a Clarins counter.


Love Jess
