Lakme Fantasy Gold Dust Shimmer Bronzer - Review

What it Claims: Be born again as an enchantress. This pure-pressed bronzing powder kissed with a golden shimmer blends beautifully to flatter any skin tone. Sweep it once all over your face or body and enjoy a glamorous glow that’s straight out of a fairytale.
Available as 3 shades in 1

MRP: Rs. 450/-

What I liked:
      
     1.  This is a wonderful shade of bronzer. I am generally not able to wear bronzers as they either look too muddy or orange on me, but this is a really pretty shade of bronzer – it is a really nice shimmery light brown that will look good on most people
     
     2.  It has a undertone of shimmer to it – which prevents it from falling flat, most matt bronzers tend to look flat & muddy.


     3.  It has 3 shades, but I feel it looks best when all 3 are used together.


What I didn’t like


     1.  The big chunks of shimmer on top of the bronzer – they have been added apparently as garnish on top & a light sweep with a fluffy brush dusts them off – but also spoils the design on top.

     2.  It lasts for 2-3 hours on my face & slowly the color disappears leaving behind the shimmer

In Shade
Overall: Get this if you, like me, have a hard time finding bronzers that you can carry off. The price is right for the amount, & it does really look nice at night – gives the skin a wonderful glow. 


Product sent by Company / PR for consideration, this is a honest recount of my experience with the product.

  3. @imw: I understand, the shimmer can be too much for some people :)

    @Shivani: Errr.. I don't understand what you mean by using a bronzer on the T-zone?? From what I know, one never uses a bronzer on the T zone, it is to be used the same way one uses a blusher.. The only thing I use on my T zone is loose powder to stop oiliness, using something this shimmery would just make me look more oily on the T zone :P

  4. I think it is better suited as a blush/all over glow powder than as a bronzer. I like my bronzers to be matte, because I mainly use them for contouring. But it will make a nice shimmery blush, for sure.
