A lot of people don't seem to understand what my fascination with bronzers is all about. Let me get to that part in a bit when I review The Bronzer by W7 in detail!
Starting off, the packaging is gorgeous isn't it! The gold enhances the look of the already not quite cheap looking plastic and the case is surprisingly sturdy! I do dislike the fact that it comes without a mirror since a bronzer is a bronzer is bronzer. Lol. No shades mean you don't really need to see the color through wherever you stack your powder compacts. Anyways, no big issue there, not everyone likes a big mirror in every compact like crazy ol' me! However, the gold might scratch off with wear overtime I'm afraid. It looks good at the moment, but not as good as new and I fear that if I throw it in my bag everyday it might fade off eventually!
The bronzer might be a bit too orange for pale, pink undertoned skin so I don't recommend this to all those ladies out there. However, it works quite nicely on my yellow-olive undertones. I use this bronzer for an all over bronzed look and that is what I LOVE about bronzers in general. I love the color it adds to you skin after foundation washes out all of your natural goodness. It sort of helps get that sunkissed look without being all shimmery and sparkly since it's a matte finish powder. I use this particular bronzer as a blush too at times pairing it with a darker bronzer and it looks quite nice. Yes, bronzers will make you look tanned. That is the point. Some people tell me I'm crazy to want to be tanned and not as fair as I can possibly look? I say they're crazy. Well not entirely, but my bronzer obsession is justified because I like how it looks on me and I say you can look like whatever you prefer, it's a free world!!!
Anyways, enough ranting. This bronzer blends nicely and isn't chalky or powdery at all. I swirl my brush in the pan and it picks up just the right amount, not too little and not too much and there is ZERO fallout which is a first for me as far as the bronzers I have tried are concerned. A single application is all I need with this bronzer. Any more makes me look orange too but not muddy like some bronzers. The lasting power is also impressive indeed. On me it stays put for a good 5 hours if I don't constantly touch my face. With a makeup fixative spray, it lasts all day long for me.
Sorry for the blurry swatch, but the left side is a single swipe of the bronzer and on the right it is swatched slightly built up! I'm also wearing it in this post!
As far as the product is concerned, I am extremely happy with it. It performs well and lasts long enough for my liking but I won't be repurchasing it since it should last me a very long time. Select W7 products can be found at Enem Store and Rahat in Lahore. For folks abroad W7 products might be found in local UK drugstores or online. I do not recommend buying from a specific online store in Pakistan that sells it because I am personally boycotting it since they sell counterfeit high end brands. Some of you may already know of this certain store but if you don't log on to my Facebook page to find out!
