17 Instant Glow Pink Bronze Shimmer Brick

17 Instant Glow Pink Bronze Shimmer Brick £4.99 @ Boots

One thing I've not been wowed by yet at the drugstore is a highlighter. I love nipping into Boots and picking up bits and bobs but I must admit it's never a highlighting product. I've tried the No.7 skin illuminators and I wasn't too keen and found them way overpriced for what they did. I was having a browse through the 17 make up and came across the little bronzing section. They had such a great range of bronzing products I was highly impressed! I loved the look of these shimmer bricks (immediate thoughts being possibly a Bobbi Brown dupe?!). They had a more bronze shade but I really liked the look and swatch of pink bronze and thought it would be a little more of an illuminating product.

The colour of this product is gorgeous when swiped though all the shades! It comes off a really pretty rose gold colour with a bit of "bronzing" effect to it. I sweeped this onto the tops of my cheekbones and loved the effect it gave!  My cheeks looked glowy with a hint of colour that just looked healthy and flattering. You could obviously use this as more of bronzing by sweeping your brush through the brown shades. The next thing I'm looking forward to using this product for is on my eyes, I think it would look absolutely stunning on its own which some liquid liner.

I would really recommend this product. The powder is smooth and has brilliant pigmentation but is manageable. I would definitely say this is a more blush/highlight colour than bronzer though. The price is perfect for the product and definitely worth it, I'd even pay a little more!

Thank you for ready!
