Now that summer is coming, I'm starting my yearly quest to find the perfect bronzer for the days I'm too lazy to use self-tanner. After hearing so many raves reviews of Jane Iredale's Moonglow Bronzer, I decided to give that one a shot and I have to say, I'm kinda loving it. First of all, it looks great in the container, with the four different shades that you can swirl together or use separately. It just looks prettier than most bronzers that are all one shade (and I'm a sucker for a product that looks pretty and does its job well). I also like that it's a regular size. I love bronzers that come in oversized compacts (more product!), but that also makes them practically impossible to carry with you and I really like to have the option to take my makeup wherever I go. The bronzer itself gives me a healthy overall color with a slight shimmer, which comes from the 24-Karat food grade gold flakes that it contains (that's one way to get myself some gold!) The other thing I really like about it is that the four different colors aren't only meant to be used as a bronzer, they can also be used on lips, cheeks, eyes - wherever you want really - because Jane Iredale products don't contain any dyes or irritants (I seriously didn't know this was important and now I'm wondering how many bad things I've put on my eyes in the past because I like to use bronzer colors as shadow sometimes). At $46, it's not exactly an impulse buy, but the fact that it can be used anywhere makes that price a little more manageable. Besides, what girl couldn't use a little more gold in her life? None that I know.
You can find a store near you that carries Jane Iredale products here.
