The Drugstore Bronzer Edit.

If you'd have told me a year ago that I had to wear bronzer or else my face didn't feel done I would have looked at you completely gone out. Over the Past couple of months I've picked up four of the most hyped drugstore bronzers in the blogosphere and today I decided I'd compare then for you. So without further ado let's get on. 

MUA Bronzer - Shade 3 £1.0

This is the darkest and most muddy of the four but used with a light hand and the right brush it can leave you with the most gorgeous colour to your face whilst looking really natural . This is the only one of MUA's bronzers that isn't packed with shimmer, which is a little annoying as they wish they did a lighter shade for really pale guys and gals. 

NYC Smooth skin bronzing face powder - Sunny £1.99

I just don't get the hype for this one, as you can see in the swatches below it lacks in pigment and I find it just doesn't blend well. I was really looking forward to trying this and I was thoroughly disappointed. If you are Casper the ghost pale you may be able to use this as it is very light, I may have to try it again in the winter. 

Sleek Face contour kit - Light £6.49 

This is the most grey toned and the best for contouring out if the three, I love the way this one blends into the skin and can be built up from a really subtle contour to a Kim Kardashian face lift contour! Even though it's not a bronzer I thought I'd give a quick shoutout to the highlighter in this kit as it is really pretty. 

L'oreal Glam bronze - Golden Bronze £7.99

I think this one is my favourite, although the sleek comes in at a very close second. I'm not 100% sure if this product is completely matte or it had a gold over spray on the top. Even if it is shimmery it doesn't show on the skin. It leaves the skin looking so healthy and naturally sun kissed. This one is well worth a look!
