Temptalia Asks You

Do you love yourself some bronzer? Only on certain occasions? What’s your favorite?

Temptalia's Answer.

I tend to get so caught up with blush and highlighters that I forget about bronzers! I love lots of things that give me bronzy glow, though! I think it’s an easy way to add va-voom :)

Stila’s Summer Collection features a stunning quad, the Charmed palette ($28.00), which I am sure instantly created some temptation! The colors featured in the palette are a mid-tone copper, warm gold, intense teal, and deep burgundy.

The color themselves are quite lovely, as they swatch well with rich pigmentation. I’d describe the colors more of a coppery-pink, warm coppery-gold, teal with green undertones, and a brown-burgundy. The texture is smooth and silky, easily blending into the skin and no fall out problems.

The only issue I had with the palette was the packaging itself. The gold coloring and the detailing on the outside was beautiful, but it feels like it’s all cardboard. The clear part (where you can see the shadows) is super thin plastic–like what you might find on top of shadows. I’d have preferred something more durable. Otherwise, this palette is superb, and it is totally worth $28!

Dior Bronze Harmony Blushicon ($42.00) comes in two stunning shades — Coral Riviera and Rose Brazilia. I’ve only had my hands on Coral Riviera at the moment, but I did swatch them both at Nordstrom a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t decide between the two… now I know I have to go back and get Rose Brazilia, too!

Oh, Dior, you really know how to make a girl swoon. First it was the Skin Shimmers (can’t wait for Pop Diamond!), and now.  The new Bronze Harmony Blushes. I love these blushes for a nice pop of color with just a touch of sheen!  I like to pair Coral Riviera with Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer for a bronzier look or Rose Diamond Skin Shimmer for a pinker cheek.

Beneath the summer sun emerges a siren or, perhaps, an angel… She is beautiful; in fact she is mesmerising! Resting in the shade of a parasol or protected by the slow rhythm of a fan to dr y the shir t which clings to her moistened skin. Did she dive into the lagoon fully clothed to gather shells with which to make a necklace?
