Chanel Luminous Bronzing Powder #917

I absolutely love summer and this year major beauty brands have been hitting us with loads of gorgeous eye candy. Some of my makeup favorites this summer comes from the Chanel summer collection and the Luminous Bronzing Powder in Sable Rose 917 is one of them, what I love is that it works as a blush and as well as a bronzer.

The Luminous Bronzing Powder comes with a soft brush which works well for touch ups, however I rather use my Sigma blush brush when applying the product at home. As you can see Sable Rose consists of several colors instead of just one single color, in Chanel’s Sable Rose, you get 7 stripes of colors. I love that this can also be used as a blush – depending on how I swirl my brush.

The multicolored narrow stripes in the Sable Rose bronzer gives a more blended flush of bronzer than anything that I’ve ever used before. This is definitely not a traditional bronzer, the dusty rose shades adds a lovely rosy color to my cheeks. You can use the top half for a bronzing effect, and the bottom half for a blushing effect. Or, of course, you can do a single swipe of all the colors for a beautiful rosy-brown color. The powder is finely milled and satiny, it feels like a very moisturizing formula which I really like. Here’s a picture of me wearing the bronzer, using one single swipe of all the 7 colors..

All in all I really like this bronzer, it’s definitely one of my favorite products this summer and I know I’ll be using it a lot. This is a fine piece of makeup to add to any makeup collection, if you love bronzers like me, you should definitely try this one.

      Thank you do much Bria! ;)) You should definitely not give up modeling, they are not so strict about the height when it comes to commercial modeling! Good luck! :) Xx

    Looks great, very natural…but I guess anything looks good on you ;) In the summer I usually like to wear tinted moisturizer and a bit of bronzing powder instead of a heavy make up! xx
