Having red hair and yellow undertones makes finding bronzers quite a challenge. Anything yellow toned (think Benefit Hoola Lite) will make me look like I have jaundice and that’s the last thing I need. On top of that, the more neutral tone the more muddy it can look on my skin and despite its cult following, Marc Jacobs Omega Bronze in Tantastic is very much borderline too neutral to look flattering on me so I’ll say I was fairly intrigued when Tantalize came out because I’ve often reached for darker toned bronzers because the undertone turned was more of what I was looking for.

Remember that cheeky midnight Space NK haul I mentioned earlier. Well, here are my first impressions. I don’t think I’ll be doing any makeup shopping in the next months but oh, am I happy with these two purchases. First of all, you got to hand it to Hourglass for the idea of swirling up their powders and it’s not just pretty to look at.
