Review: Clinique Almost Bronzer SPF15


Clinique Almost Bronzer SPF15 ★★★★
Price: $59.00
About: natural pressed dual powder bronzer for the face. Packaged in a slimline compact with mirror and brush applicator.
Review: As the name suggests, Almost Bronzer is a facial bronzer which is so subtle that it looks natural. The powder compact consists of two very natural tawny coloured bronzing powders which, when blended together, creates a warm glow that very, very subtly hits at being a bronzer without screaming oompah loompah! The only reason it did not receive the full five star rating is because the gorgeous natural toned powder is just that tad bit too subtle which means that I spend a little more time trying to build up the colour and ensure even coverage when applying it but apart from that I honestly can't flaw it. This lovely little number also contains SPF15 to protect your skin which I think is both wonderful and humorous (because if you didn't apply sunscreen underneath, you could end up with a burned face and perfectly tanned cheekbones, ha ha). Almost Bronzer is packaged in a lovely slimline compact which looks like a a little treasure box because it is so cute and the brown tone is really summery, warming and appealing. Press gently on the gold embossed Clinique clasp and you will discover the dual tone bronzer and mirror (although I do recommend applying this in front of a large mirror with good light around you. Lift up the secret compartment underneath the bronzer to discover a gorgeous and very nifty bronzing brush which is shaped flat to contour your cheek bones. There are two shades to choose from Light/Medium and Medium/Dark so be sure to take in to account your natural skin tone before purchasing. I have fair skin and chose the Light/Medium but as I am comfortable with using bronzers and can see that the formula is very natural in appearance when it is applied to the skin, I will be trying the Medium/Dark shade next time and yes - I will purchase Almost Bronzer in future!
