Primark PS Matte Bronzer Review

I've almost run out of my current bronzer, Nars Laguna, so I decided to pick up this budget friendly one from Primark to see if it's any good and perhaps save me from having to pick up another Nars bronzer. 

As you will have seen from the title of this post this is a matte bronzer, I have the shade Sunrise, it also comes in a slightly darker shade named Sunset. It costs £2 and comes in a cute copper toned compact, I like the look of the packaging but it's not the best quality, the pan currently tilts in the compact and I'm pretty sure at some point it will fall out which is a shame.

I'm not a fan of shimmery bronzers so Iove that this is matte, I also usually like a shade that is more neutral so I can use it to almost contour the face but this shade is too warm toned to do this. When you dip your brush into the powder you will notice a lot of fallout so be careful this could be messy especially if you're wearing lot's of white summer clothing, not a good look!

The powder is quite pigmented so be sure to tap off any excess powder from your brush and use a light hand when applying to avoid using too much. It gives you a very warm tanned look to the skin which is nice but it doesn't blend the easiest so I would work in small sections to slowly build up the colour till you're happy with the results and if you do struggle when blending take the brush you applied your face powder with and and gently sweep over the bronzed areas of the face to soften any edges and give a more subtle look.

You can definitely make this bronzer work for you especially if you love very warm bronzy shades but for me personally this isn't my favourite. I will try and get plenty of use out of this during the summer months (in particular when I'm fake tanned) but I probably wouldn't repurchase this again purely because I prefer a more neutral toned bronzer that blends out a little more easily. 

What are your favourite budget friendly bronzers?
