That’s your big boy
Last month I gave you a sneak peek at the Lancôme Golden Riviera Summer 2014 Collection, but I didn’t have the show-stopping piece, the Lancôme Golden Riviera Collection Star Bronzer. I talked about how much I loved the Lancôme Star Bronzer Brush, but it wasn’t until I saw the size of this bronzer, that I truly understood why you needed such a large brush. From the moment I saw this new Lancôme Star Bronzer, I instantly thought “that’s your big boy”, a little Seinfeld reference if you will. The bronzer is huge, it’s going to last me my entire life, if not longer.
Lancôme Golden Riviera Collection Star Bronzer comes in the largest, luxe, shiny round brown compact, with full size mirror on lid that you’ll ever see. It features the iconic Lancôme rose embossed into the powder with a shimmery gold overspray. It has a finely milled, incredibly creamy and velvety smooth texture that is so buttery soft it almost feels like a cream blush. It blends beautifully, provides a decent amount of colour with only a few swipes of the brush and almost melts into the skin once applied. As soon as the overspray is gone, you’re left with a satin, matte finish in a warm bronze shade that looks beautiful on all skin tones. It lasts throughout the day without fading or any patchiness.
Lancôme Golden Riviera Collection Star Bronzer looks incredibly natural on my pale skin, it gives my face a naturally sun-kissed glow without looking orange or fake. It gives a somewhat luminous sheen to the skin without looking shimmery or sparkly. It retails for $52 for 30g, which is about 3 times a traditional bronzer.
