This much awaited post has finally come (awaited by myself anyway). Some of you may have seen the tweets of the tragic moment I smashed my Too Faced Soul Mates bronzer just 20 hours after I purchased it (a sob story good enough for X Factor lets not lie), but after restraining for weeks I finally repurchased it again. This time, I got the shade Carrie & Big which is one of two shades – Ross & Rachel which I purchased last time – as this seemed to be more suited to pale skin tones like mine.
To put it bluntly, I am OBSESSED with this bronzer. Too Faced have really got it spot on with the packaging (although, when have they not), from the cute box to the huge mirror, the packaging is an all round winner. The mirror makes it perfect for travelling and if you happen to smash yours like I did with my first one, it means it still has a use.
I’ve seen a number of negative reviews regarding this bronzer’s tendancy to show up orange on many skin tones and I was a little worried it would have the same effect on me, if you know me, you know I hate orange face products. Now, I do have to admit this bronzer is slightly orange toned however this really works for me if I am going for an all over natural bronze as this is a similar colour to the colour I normally tan (yes, someone as pale as me can tan every once in a while). Whilst I’m saying it has orange tones, it certainly doesn’t look ‘orange’. Those of you that have used benefit hoola will know that it has grey undertones which makes it perfect for contouring however, slightly muddy looking if you bronze all over. This product is the opposite, not so great for contouring however , the perfect colour for bronzing. I particularly like using these products together as they seem to complement each other.
In terms of the blusher, I’m not going to lie in saying that it is quite hard to get on your brush without mixing it with the bronzer, this can be quite frustrating although is easily sorted by using a smaller blush brush. The colour itself is a colour that I’ve never used before, I normally go for dolly pinks however this coral shade really complements the bronzer and I find using them together gives you a really natural-looking complexion.
Overall, I’m chuffed with this bronzer and I think its a worthwhile purchase, I’m sure it will be getting a lot more use over the upcoming summer months.
