I wont lie to you - I am partial to a bronzer. My DNA says that I'm more of a bronzer woman than a blush woman, and sometimes it bugs me that I don't get excited by blush, but in all honesty, I love the warm tones of bronzer and the feeling of having a glow. The curse of bronzer however is the possible orange look if you're too heavy in application. Fortunately for me, I have quite olive toned skin so I can get away with bronzer more than some fairer people could, which means a very happy Tamsin. Near me, there's an independent department store which does some great deals in the sale - this is one of my fav things about independent stores - you can get makeup items in the sale, unlike bigger department stores. I picked up this particular bronzer in the sale the other day - unfortunately as it was released last Summer, it may be difficult to get your paws on, but it may sway you to a similar bronzer in the long run.
Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Bronze Powder in Warm Radiance was part of the Rose Aurora collection. With the popular Rose Gold packaging, it made people stop at the Elizabeth Arden counter who may not have been regular customers, so gold star to them for a good merchandising game. I, too am a sucker for nice packaging and aesthetics do feature a lot for me. The compact is solid and pretty, and added mirror is always a bonus if you're on the move. The bronzer itself is a mix of shimmer and glow - don't be put off by the shimmer - there's not a lot there to speak of and it just gives a bit of a shine if the sun catches your face. Silky smooth to apply too and pigmentation is great - my only blip is that the powder can be a little wayward when applying and can get over the compact, but it's deal-able. Warm Radiance is the middle shade and if you have olive skin, this would be perfect for you - it's not subtle but not over the top.
A good dupe for this bronzer may be the classic Nars Laguna Bronzing Powder, so if you can't get your hands on this lovely Elizabeth Arden one, maybe that is your calling? However, you can still pick it up from Feel Unique for £21.25 which isn't bad as it did retail for £25. As a bronze bambino, the Pure Finish Bronze Powder ticks all the boxes for me, with a few extra points for the seriously hot packaging. If you love a bit of a glow, maybe this is one for you to try and get your hands on why you still can!
