The Body Shop Honey Bronze Make-Up Range

By 12:04 , ,

There's something about honey that I'm so attracted to. I think it makes everything loads more appealing and sweeter! The Body Shop's Honey Bronze Make Up range was launched in June in time summer. But since summer is all year round for us Malaysians, you can use this all the time!

My Honey Bronze Look ^^

I know most Asians shy away from bronzing products for fear that it might make them look tanned-ish. I say it's more like not really understanding the idea of bronzing and not really knowing how to use it. But I lurv the warm sunkissed glow it gives my skin! I was super excited when The Body Shop sent me some products from this range. The warm bronze packaging was enough to entice me, it's play time!! Yayy!

To do justice to this review I visited one of my fave TBS MA, Azza from the KLCC store to get some tips on how to use these products effectively.

The Bronzing Powder
Just look at the honey comb embossed into the powder. Nice! Best thing about this powder is that it's matte! So not only can you use it as a blusher but also for light shading for the day. It's finely milled with a light texture. It gives out a great hue upon application. To use for shading just apply it at your jawline. Blend well. It just softens your look. Azza says it'll look great in photos. Then apply it on the side of the nose bridge for a bit of definition. For that perfect sun kissed look apply it on your cheeks as you would a blusher. I lurved how this turned out!! I instantly looked healthy and glowy! There might be a tendancy to pile this on but keep in mind that it will get a tad bit dark after it has settled.

Shade: 01 Light Matte
TBS Malaysia has 3 shades

If you're wondering, no the colour doesn't look dark on the skin. :)

The Brilliance Powder
Warning - quite high shimmer! With a fine texture you only need to use it sparingly. If you plan on using this for a day look, brush it very lightly on the chin and the area slightly above where you apply blusher to highlight the areas where the sun would usually hit your face. Gives that radiant look. For an evening look, by all means go all out but try not to look like a disco ball. You can apply it all over the face, décolletage, body and hair too! Imagine the effect it creates when the light hits your hair. Superstar baby!

Shade: Bronze Shimmer
This comes in a Copper shade for international market

Brilliance powder on the cheekbones above the blusher and chin

Lip Nectar
The shade TBS Malaysia has is 02 in Honey Beige. The almost rich honey-like colour has fine shimmer particles that can either be worn by itself or on top or a light lip colour. It doesn't feel sticky or gooey upon application and it wears quite long. The only thing missing is the honey taste!! Would've been yummy! *smacks lips*

I think this is a wonderful range and I'm completely sold! I'm all for that healthy glow! Plus bronzey glow is always the rage with celebs! Think Jessica Alba and Jennifer Lopez, perfect bronze babes.

The Honey Bronze Look
Smudge chart by Me ^^

This honey enriched range uses honey and beeswax taken from traditional hives as they continue to "work" once the honey has been removed. It contains Community Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia, beeswax from Cameroon and the compact powders contain marula oil from Namibia. The ingredients make it moisturising and makes the products non-streaky.

If you haven't already tried this range, head down to the nearest TBS outlet! :)
