With the warmer weather slowly approaching, I want to look a little more tanned and bronzed and what better way to do so than with cream products. Sienna X is a brand I have always heard great things about, in particular about their self tanning products, so when they got in touch about their Cream to Powder Bronzer and Illuminator* I was very excited to try it!
The packaging is stunning. It is a bronzey/rose gold with the Sienna X logo on the front. The front of the compact does a 360 turn which I really like because on the inside there is a full size mirror so you can twist it round until you get to the perfect position. The compact is very light weight which makes it perfect for your handbag, I have found myself carrying this around almost everyday since I got it. Inside of the compact is two cream shades, one a bronzer shade and one illuminator/highlighter shade.
Both of the shades are cream based but once applied to the skin they have a powder like finish which I have been really enjoying. I have been using the bronze shade to do a little bit of contouring with or just to add some colour to my cheeks when I don't want to wear blush. The illuminator shade is perfect to wear on the tops of my cheek bones, brow bone and in my cupids bow. Both of the shades blend out really nicely, the bronze shade gives a very natural glow and the illuminator adds a gorgeous highlight without looking like a strip of glitter or making you look like a disco ball. I found it best to apply both shades with my fingers rather than with a brush as I could get more precise with my fingers. I just took a buffing brush after I apply it to make sure it is all blended in.
I think this compact is going to get used so much more in the warmer months as they are cream based. This little beauty retails for £12.95.
