Review : Milani Powder Bronzer in Light #01

As you can see I'm continuing with the bronzer reviews! Natalie, a lovely follower of my blog, requested reviews and swatches of the bronzers I recently bought, plus it's summer, so bronzers are a must have item now! ;) This time I'll review Milani Powder Bronzer in Light! I love, love, love Milani eyeshadows (both the quads and the single ones) and blushes, so I was really excited to try their bronzer as well !

The packaging is really simple, which isn't a bad thing actually! It comes in a plastic compact with a clear lid! I love products with a clear lid/cap, because I can see what's inside! The compact is flat and quite small, so it doesn't take a lot of space in your makeup bag or your hangbag! My only problem with this packaging is that it's a bit hard to open, especially if you have long nails! Here's what it looks like:

The actual product is a bit powdery, but nothing over the top! It looks a bit shimmery in the pan, but once you apply it on your face it looks quite matte, so you can definitely use it all over your face or for contouring! It blends easily and it lasts pretty long on my oily cheeks! As you can see this bronzer is darker than the one from NYC and Stila I've already reviewed on my blog and the shade I have (Light) is the second lightest shade they make, so if you're very fair it might not work for you! This bronzer comes in 2 more shades, Radiant and Medium! Even Radiant, which is the lightest shade they make, looks pretty dark to me! Anyway, here's a swatch of Light in natural daylight :

As you can see it's really pigmented and quite dark, so use a light hand with it! Keep in mind that the color in the picture is packed on and unblended, you won't apply it like that on your face! In the compact you get 10g of product and it retails for about $5-6, which is pretty cheap, if you consider that you only need a tiny amount each time! I got this bronzer off ebay, but you can also find it on Cherry Culture ! You can find out more about Milani Cosmetics on their official website ! Definitely check this bronzer out! ;)

  1. Thanks so much for the swatch, all the colours look very similar in the website!

  2. @Natalie no problem! ;) if you're lighter than me you better get Radiant, the Light will be too dark for you!
