The weather here in Melbourne has been beautiful over these last couple of days, and it has got me all excited for the warmer months ahead! Naturally when the weather warms up, it’s time to put away all those dark winter shades and bring out the fun, fresh makeup. I made a head start today by purchasing the Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Sun Stones in Light to Medium. This was not a product that I had set out to purchase- I had my heart set on the Airbrushing Bronzing Veil Deluxe Edition, also by Physiciams Formula (in below picture). I had seen it in a Priceline catalogue and it looked beautiful. However, after testing it in-store, I changed my mind and instead purchased the Sun Stones. I felt like this product suited my skin tone better.
This is the one I had planned to purchase- I might pick it up soon.
The Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Sun Stones.
In direct sunlight. You can see the pearls are quite light in colour.
The Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Sun Stones is a beautiful product and is very visually appealing to the eye. It’s made up of small balls or ‘stones’, in two different shades: one is a soft, milky chocolate colour and the other is a light peachy/gold shade. When swirled together they create a very light, shimmery bronze colour. The texture of the stones are quite soft and the pigment is reasonable. They are not chalky but not exactly creamy; somewhere in between.
I love how this is packaged. Everything fits in really neatly inside the compact. It comes with both a sponge and a brush; I’d probably use the sponge more than the brush, just because I feel it would pick up more product. There is also a mirror included which is handy for touch ups. To open the compact, you need to unscrew the lid, but make sure you open it the right way- I opened it upside down so all of the beads fell out- yikes!
No filter is used here.
I would say this product would best suit lighter-skinned girls. As you can see from the above photos, this is a very fair shade of bronzer; I’d say it’s more of a finishing veil than a bronzer. This is a product that you’d apply to add some soft shimmer to the face; it’s too light to be considered a proper bronzer. I plan to use this as a finishing veil, once all of my makeup has been applied. I can imagine it will give a very soft glow to the skin and soften the overall appearance of the face.
