I have been “needing“ a new bronzer for quite a while, but I wasn’t too sure what bronzer to go for. I have been using my Catrice Prime And Fine Contouring Palette, but I find that I have to work harder to get the deep bronze I am looking for. While looking through Dischem like I always do I saw that Essence release a new bronzer the Essence Luminous Matte Bronzing Powder – which I will be reviewing today.
Essence Cosmetics says “ the matt bronzing texture with a silky-shimmering core creates a subtle, sun-kissed look.” The Essence Cosmetics Luminous Matte Bronzing Powders currently comes in two shades 01 Sunshine – this is for lighter skin tones and the shade 02 Sunglow – is for ladies with medium to darker skin tones.
I picked up the shade in Sunglow, I really wanted a bronzer that will give me that intense bronze without leaving my face looking muddy. As mentioned I picked this bronzer up from Dischem R64.95, which as you guys know Essence is one of my favourite budget friendly brands, they just fit within my budget.
The bronzer itself comes in a transparent compact and it has rose gold writing on it. It bronzer has this beautiful embossing on it, with the luminous shade in the centre and the deeper bronzer on the outside. Essentially this bronzer just gives you a gorgeous bronze with a slight glow. I have been using this bronzer for a few days now, and I am so impressed with the quality and how good the bronzer blends in and actually shows up well on my skin. Many bronzers I have to use quite a lot of product to get the beautiful bronze.
So with all this being said I definitely like that the Essence Luminous Matte Bronzing Powder is worth purchasing, it’s a great affordable bronzer that will certainly be part of my daily makeup routine.3
