Prestige Glam Tan Bronzer Review and Comparison!
I have used it enough times to officially announce..... that I LOVE it!!! If I had to choose one bronzer to take on holiday - I would choose this one!
It's from the skin loving minerals range and is a mineral bronzing powder, the shade is 02 GLAM TAN! What a cool name! It's basically a dupe for Mac's msf's and only comes in at just under £9.
So is it anything like Nars Laguna? mmm no not really, I decided to compare it with mac msf in Gold Deposit and also found it to be suprisingly similar to another drugstore brand - Bourjois! The gold bronzing powder by bourjois is amazing - when I first purchased it I literally wore it everyday... I still use it alot from time to time!
The texture of Prestige glam tan bronzer is very silky, it glides on smoothly and is easily blended. It smells ok, nothing fancy. The packaging is Shu Uemera esque, I like it.. would have been nice if it had a mirror inside! I ALWAYS forget my mirror at home!
The product contains shea butter which is a bonus and has no bismuth in it for all you allergic people out there! (including me)
Here they all are swatched... This is a very exxagerated swatch - obviously we wouldn't dump it on the face this thick (you better not - do you wanna look like a painting?) :) but these swatches should give you an idea of its true colour.
Here is a more realistic swatch...
So after all of that comparing I have to say that my favourite is the Prestige glam tan, I would suggest you buy this if you are looking for a natural golden glow... I suppose you could use it as contour if you have quite fair skin. I have been wearing the glam tan alone over my Bobbi Brown moisture rich foundation and have to say that I love it, I have eliminated blush, highlight and contour... I now just BRONZE :) Seriously it's a much cheaper alternative to Mac's msfs and is just a lovely feel good product. It almost makes your skin look "fake" because it just looks healthy - not baked!!!
