The Body Shop: Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder (Review and Swatch)

If there's one thing makeup related I can tell my younger-self, using bronzer is the one (along with many many others XD ha ha ha...).. So I was in a need for a new bronzer lately. I came across The Body Shop's Honey Bronzer because 1. I have seen many positive reviews; 2. I swatched this bronzer in store in person and the color is just right for my complexion, not too dark and not too orange and weird; 3. it's on sale! who doesn't love bargains :D

As you can see the picture above, my NARS Laguna bronzer from NARS At First Sight Palette was very well loved. It's still one of my faves because the color is so pretty and easy to work with. And it gives you a very healthy bronzy look. (FYI: I'm about NC 25-ish, Make Up For Ever HD #118 or #120, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation in the shade Light Sand). The Body Shop's Honey Bronzer on the right (shade: 02 Fair Matte) looks slightly lighter than Laguna bronzer. It's matte so it does not give you any shine on the face. It's one of the products that you don't have to be too careful (or too light hand) when applying - which is good if you are a makeup beginner or often in a rush in the morning. You just slap this on and you're good to go XD Super easy to work with! 

Here are swatches of both bronzers. Honey bronzer on the left and Laguna bronzer on the right. They are equally beautiful. Honey bronzer (02 Fair Matte) is lighter, matte without shimmers. Laguna bronzer has very subtle shimmers so you get a bit of glow on the face. Both are fragrance free (at least to my quite sensitive nose...) so that's a plus if you like fragrance free makeup. Price-wise, Honey bronzer $20 (but they often have 40% or 50% sale) and Laguna bronzer $38 which is quite pricey. 

and yeah...that's pretty much it and I hope you find somthing helpful in the post if you are in a bronzer-hunt :)

Thanks for reading and have a great day, afternoon or evening :p
