Clarins 'Splendours Summer Bronzing Compact'

A few weeks ago I read a review of the Splendours Limited Edition Collection by Clarins.   Those of you who follow me regularly will know I have a blush and bronzing addiction - I just had to have the bronzing compact.  I purchased it the very next day thus breaking the rules of my spending ban - doh!

The Splendours Summer Bronzing Compact is the epitome of bronzers.  This is a large compact with a good sized mirror.

Inside the detailing is truly stunning, a gorgeous Aztec motif is embossed on the powder, was almost a shame to use it - as this will soon disappear.  

This is mainly matte, however the centre section has a slight shimmer which you can use as a highlighter, unfortunately that part is a little orangey for me to use on its own, but soon remedied when mixed with the other two tones - it blends really well.  

This bronzer is really pigmented and because I am normally fairly pale I only need the tiniest amount on my brush to dust my face with which gives a gorgeous sun kissed glow. 

If you would like to have this in your make up bag visit any Clarins counter for a limited time only.  It costs £30.00 and you will receive 20g of product which will last you ages.  

Another product in the Splendours range is this beautiful Eyeshadow Quartet & Eyeliner palette 
this costs £31.00 and would compliment your bronzed look.  I have this on my shopping list.

Be quick now, these beauts won't be around for long. 

Ps, I have a confession - I also purchased the Crystal Lip Gel in Crystal Pink, review coming soon.
