Bourjois Bronzing Primer - Reviewed!

I've probably only been wearing bronzer a lot for about two or three years, I never thought it would work for my pale skin. After 'mastering' the powder bronzers the next step of course is cream bronzers. There is not many drugstore offerings when it comes to cream bronzers but Bourjois have recently brought out a whole bunch of bronzing products for Summer including the Bronzing Primer. 
Bourjous Bronzing Primer
The packaging is simple, a plastic pot with a brown lid. The product itself is designed to be used as a primer, a 'tinted smoothing primer that evens and mattifies.' I personally found this a little too dark to use all over as a primer however as a cream bronzer it is perfect.

The product is a creamy mouse consistency which is surprisingly easy to work with. I use the Real Techniques Contour Brush or the Duo Fiber Contour Brush to apply it. I tend to gentle tap my brush into the product and blend it on the cheek bones and temples. The colour does seem like it could be a little orange but when blended onto the skin it gives a lovely natural bronze look.

I've found for a cream product this has really good wear time on me. Even though I have oily skin I find it doesn't slip off my face even without powder on top. I would recommend thought if you use powder to apply this before it and after foundation to get the best finish. The product does have a chocolatey scent to it which I personally like.

All in all i've been really impressed with this product and have worn it everyday since getting it. It has become a firm favourite of mine and is a great Summer product. The colour is definitely buildable and it is very easy to blend onto the skin, I think this would best suit pale to medium skintones.

Bourjois Bronzing Primer retails for £9.99.
