We Love This!

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, $45

I find that many of the bronzers I have tried - and unfortunately bought - have an unnatural shimmer.

Not this one. This is a matte bronzer.

I love how it seems very natural. It accentuates and sharpens your cheek bones. If you know how to use contouring lines to enhance your face, this is great for that too.

It is not overly pigmented, which is what I like. It appears to look more natural.

But if your make-up role model is Kim Kardashian, who has a make-up blueprint for her face, you can still layer the product to get a dark, deep colour.

It is also very long-lasting - giving you the confidence of not having an oily face during the day.

Bonus? It smells like chocolate - something I think more cosmetics companies could try doing to their products.

Available at Sephora.

bareMinerals Ready Touch Up T Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in translucent, $42

This translucent pressed powder is meant to deliver a flawless finish to your make-up while also making it last throughout the day.

It is only partially successful.

On application, it does give your face a matte finish. But last throughout the day?

I found myself constantly having to touch it up.

I'm not sure if I can lay all the blame for that on the applicator, but the sponge provided failed to pick up the product effectively.
