Beauty on a Budget: Rimmel SunShimmer Maxi Bronzer Review and Swatches
If you’re loving the new Lancome Bamboo Bronzer but simply can’t afford it, check out the Rimmel SunShimmer Maxi Bronzer.
It’ll only set you back around $5.99!
What is it?
A super size golden bronzer for face, cheeks, and body.
Best news about this bronzer is the fact that the overspray isn’t just for show! The bronzer is made up of a swirl of muddy brown and a fine golden shimmer. Although the first bit of gold rubs away fairly quickly, yes a little overspray in the mix, it still has a faintly golden glimmer that lightens up the muddy brown and makes it very wearable. The bronzer doesn’t have a nasty orange or mud finish but simply enhances your own natural skin tone with a kiss of golden glow. Its quite pigmented and blends easily with the use of a smaller kabuki. I use a small dash on my cheeks on top of a peachy cheek stain to enhance the color and create a sunkissed look. I have it in the shade Sun Queen which I believe is the darkest shade but still manages to remain subtle and simply illuminates the face without over doing it or making me look like a Oompa-Loompa (my biggest fear when it comes to bronzers).
Not alot of bad about it to be honest. Although I’m not keen on the packaging, not really pretty.
Who might like it?
- Anyone looking for a cheaper bronzer option because they are lemming the Lancome Bamboo Bronzer.
- Anyone who wants a golden glow for the Summer.
Who might not like it?
- Very fair skin ladies may find this applies a tad muddy.
- Anyone that simply hates bronzers prob won’t find any interest in this.
I never really had much interest in bronzers until I tried Urban Decay Baked Bronzer. Soon after I developed a great love affair with finding great shades of shimmering bronzers. Rimmel Sunshimmer Maxi Bronzer fits the bill perfectly. It has just enough shimmer to create a golden glow without creating a disco ball effect on your face plus the inexpensive price tag makes it appealing for those on a beauty budget.
