Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Season to Season Bronzer

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all are well :)

In the past I have been lucky enough to have been able to get my little mitts on Physicians Formula makeup. My friend Louise had sent me over some various bits and pieces from the States which I'm ever so grateful for! Other than the odd bronzer here and there in TK Maxx, Physicians Formula wasn't available to use ladies and gents here in Ireland……until now. >:)

I was luckier again to have been invited to the Physicians Formula Launch party in the Morrison Hotel last month. The room was filled with delicious treats, buzzing beauty bloggers and an array of makeup products…what more could you want? I had my makeup done on the night using different products from the range which was great as I was able to try out products that I might not have picked up otherwise. We got a lovely little goody bag to take home and todays review is of one of those products, 'Bronze Booster Season to Season Bronzer'.

I'm a huge fan of bronzer and contouring products, they give such a gorgeous finish to the skin. My makeup routine in the morning wouldn't be complete without that step! However, for myself finding a bronzer that isn't too orange toned and that suits my complexion can be difficult at times. My holy grail product had been the Sleek MakeUP Contour Kit 'light' (review here) but recently I had found myself wanting to try something new, something different!

As the name of the product suggests, this bronzer features a shade for each season. My favourite thing about this product is the fact that you can customize your shade of bronzer. You can wear each of the shades individually or swirl them all together! Physicians Formula stock this product in 'Light-to-Medium' and 'Medium-to-Dark'. The one I own is the 'Light-to-Medium', personally I think this compact is best suited to someone who has a pale complexion like myself. 
The shades range from light, medium to dark so they are perfect for bronzing up the skin…no orange tones in sight! I love that I can still get use out of this while wearing a little bit of tan too, if I am wearing tan i'll bronze up my skin using the 'Summer' shade in the compact. Between the two different compacts there is a shade in there that will suit everyone!
The little gold circle you see in the centre can be used as a face highlighter which looks exceptionally lovely if paired with the 'Summer' shade of bronzer, the combination of the two shades gives such a gorgeous glow to the skin. The texture of the product is quite smooth making it very easy to work with, it blends like a dream.

Just underneath the bronzer, the compact opens to reveal a mirror and a brush so its perfect for on the go touch ups. The brush is a nice addition, its soft and does apply product well. However I prefer to use a smaller more precise brush for applying my contour/bronzer so I won't get much use out of it on a daily basis but it is handy to have on the go!

This product retails for €19.90 which is more than I would usually pay for a bronzer but its worth every cent, i'll definitely be repurchasing once I run out.
As of 1st June 2014, Physicians Formula is stocked in pharmacies nationwide.

Have you tried any of the Physicians Formula range? Let me know ^.^
