Urban Decay Beached Bronzer, bronzer, makeup, urban decay

If you're in the market for a new bronzer, I think I may have found just the one to try.  Urban Decay's new(ish) Beached Bronzer has been tailor made for the summer months.  With the playful, summer appropriate packaging, on first impressions you could be forgiven for thinking Beached Bronzer is not that serious. Personally, I love the fun palm tree print and rose gold detailing.  This bronzer really does mean business and the powder inside certainly doesn't disappoint.

The slimline, lightweight packaging is perfect for on the go.  Urban Decay provide you with a decent sized mirror, ideal for touch-ups. The tone of the bronzer looks much warmer in the pan than on the skin.  I opted for 'Sun Kissed', which is the much lighter shade of the available two.  When applied to the skin, it provides a lovely, natural (as the name would suggest) 'sun-kissed' glow.

Too light to contour with, 'Sun Kissed' is perfect for the palest of skin tones.  Urban Decay have managed to pop the most wonderful of shades into the pan.  There are no orange tones, no traces of a muddy wash.  It's just summer in a pan, to give the fairest of girls a lovely holiday glow without having to bake in the sun.

The powder is finely milled and soft to the touch.  It's near impossible to over-apply.  Dusted over the cheeks, temples, nose and forehead leaves an ultra pretty summer look.

I'd been using Nars Laguna for as long as I can remember, so much so it will soon be appearing in an empties post.  I can't help but wonder if this has been slightly too dark for me (as an everyday bronzer) all along. 

Urban Decay I salute you!  You have produced the most wonderful bronzer for all summer long.
