ELF mineral glow kit in bronzed [review with swatches!!]

 HELLO GUYS!!
I have an ELF product review today...
something I've been using every single day since I opened it..
and I'm talking about the
ELF mineral glow kit in bronzed. 






This comes in a faux leather case and with a body kabuki brush.
But my main focus in this review will be the bronzer.
The faux leather case is cool for travel stuff.
and the kabuki brush isn't the best I've tried.
Allow me to rephrase that.



The kabuki brush... which you can buy seperately on the site..
is NOT a good brush. It is coarse and sheds. So it is not the stand out product in this kit..
The mineral glow in bronzed on its own costs £5
The mineral body kabuki brush costs £5
and the mineral glow kit in bronzed costs £10 (and you get the faux leather case for free)
So, you decide what works best for you.
Personally, if I were to buy it .. I'd get the mineral glow in bronzed on its own.
But that's just me..



and the bronzer is very much worth it ..
because I have been using it every single day since I opened it.

 



 PACKAGING
  I initially poked all the holes open and I shook it everytime 
I want to apply it to geta slight amount in the sifter. 
 I later removed the whole thing.. and I find it easier.. 
because I don't have to shake it everytime and all I have to do is use a light hand. 
The packaging is quite big, and you get quite a lot of product which is surprising
Honestly, I don't care for the kabuki brush that it comes with ..
 I find it too coarse for my liking and too flimsy. 
  It's a loose powder, so it can be quite annoying to put on the brush. You have to tap of excess and make sure your brush doesn't pick too much product.



SHADE
 A golden-toned bronzer which will warm up the face. 
It doesn't give a dirty face. It is quite hard to overdo it. 
I feel it has a very slight orange-red tone to it..
 which I find very flattering on my medium skintone.

applied heavily, blended (you can see the very slight sparkle to it here - it is THAT minimal)

TEXTURE
Very smoothe


swatched heavily, blended


FINISH
  It is not a 100% matte.
 If you look upclose it has very very slight shimmery glow to it,
and as a matte bronzer-lover
this doesnòt bother me one bit.. 
because it doesn't really transfer when swatched or when is applied, 
but I feel it gives a more natural looking bronze than the regular matte bronzer.



APPLICATION
 I apply this with a buffer kabuki brush
 I got from ebay on the top of my forehead , 
against my hair line, the temples, 
underneath the cheekbones.


I am wearing this in all of these looks below :










 







BOTTOM LINE 
It gives me a nice tan look. 
I have gotten quite a few compliments on how my tan is prolonged from summer, 
and how healthy I look when I'm wearing it.
LOL. little do they know it's my trusty bronzer.
I definitely like it A LOT. 
And I recommend this to all warm complexions, 
especially medium skintones. 

Who might not like it?

 People who like pale skin, those who have cool toned pale skin because it may show up too orangey on them. And people with dark complexions – it probably won't show up on them.


Anyway!
I hope you find this helpful,
and stay tuned for future reviews :D
