Ignore my terrible eyebrows. I never realised how terrible they was when I took the picture!
For the past couple of weeks, I've been on a bit of a mission to make myself look as tan as possible since I'm not going abroad this year. I refuse to be left the pale one while everyone else around goes on lovely holidays and comes back with gorgeous tans to match. I REFUSE!
Apart from the obvious fake tan, I've also been adding bronzer into my everyday make-up routine and although I love the way it makes me look, my bronzer is just not up to the job. I'm currently using the MUA bronzer and unfortunately I can't last a few hours with it as I cannot stand the way it smells - it's far too sweet!
I did however manage to pick myself up the Bourjois Sunkiss Collection kit from Boots while it was on offer and that came with the gorgeous Maxi Delight Bronze with brush. I was intimidated by the sheer size of it - trust me, it's massive! But since I was so eager to be tanned, I carried on regardless.
I've been using this bronzer for a few weeks now and I have to admit I love the way it makes me look. It can be just a very subtle glow when you first apply but it can easily be built up for a more dramatic look - which is a great plus because I hate bronzers/blushers that look far too thick and solid after just one application. It's bronzer - not face paint!
As I said above, the one reason I hated my old bronzer was the smell and that will never be a problem with the Maxi Delight - it just smells gorgeous! It's very subtle but sweet and reminds me slightly of candy. Something I will never complain about.
The formula itself is very light and doesn't look over-shimmery. No one likes like the glitter overload look. It can easily outlast my work day and then some so there's no fear of it fading and you turning back to your true milk bottle state.
Overall this bronzer is my dream come true and I can see myself using this for a very long time! If you were unlucky enough not to get the Sunkiss Collection kit, you can pick up the Maxi Delight bronzer on it's own for £8.99 from Boots!
