Hello! I am going through things that I have bought prior to the start of my NO BUY and posting swatches to remind myself that I have lots of makeup. Here are a couple of nice things for the cheeks!
Physician's Formula Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Bronzer
WOW, that is a long name for a product! Let's face it, I bought this because the packaging features fishnets and a high-heeled shoe and the powder looks like a little corset. It's one of those things that you leave out on your makeup table because it's pretty. The compact has a mirror on the back and comes with a little brush which actually works quite well.
This comes in two shades: bronzer and light bronzer. I picked the light bronzer. I use it as a neutral blush. If you don't like shimmery blushes or bronzer, you won't like this. It applies rather shiny. The powder has a fairly strong vanilla scent to it; if you are sensitive to scented products I would avoid this.
This product definitely makes some interesting claims. It is supposed to be like "lingerie for your face". (WTF?) Also, it is infused with cocoa extract, which is supposedly "the love chemical" and horny goatweed which is supposedly an "ancient aphrodisiac". Please tell me I am not the only one who finds it hilarious that there is an "ancient aphrodisiac" called HORNY goatweed. I did not experience any aphrodisiac effects while wearing this powder.
Ridiculous ingredients and overpowering scent aside, this is a very nicely packaged bronzer and I have quite enjoyed using it.
Benefit Rockateur Famously Provocative Cheek Powder
Once again, I may or may not have bought this because it looks pretty and has lace and little studs on the box. I do not care for most of Benefit's products but I do love the little boxes of powder. They come with a nice little brush and have a mirror inside.
This one has a cool imprint to the powder. I may or may not have used it prior to photographing it. (Fail!) Once again, this blush/bronzer is shimmery and it is quite heavily scented. Why do they add scent to face powders? Scent can be very irritating for some people (though neither of these powders bothered my skin).
Ummmm, so yeah, it appears that I didn't actually SWATCH either of these. That's really helpful! I have been using both a fair bit lately, you will see what they look like in upcoming looks.
What are your favourite neutral blushes or bronzers?
