L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze Pro Perfect Airbrush Self Tanning Mist Review

I imagine as a Beauty Blogger I’m supposed to boldly go where no man…errr…I mean woman has gone before.

Well in my case I am boldly going where I’ve never gone before! Sorry to disappoint but I’m positive a hundred other Beauty Bloggers have gone down this journey before but the good news is you now have my official take on a subject I detest with a passion.

Picture+071

Can you guess the subject?

Tanning.

Ugh.

The sun, bronzing, tanning….I HATE it all!

However, since I’m such a sport I decided to test out L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze Pro Perfect Airbrush Self Tanning Mist. Bloody hell that’s a mouthful isn’t it?

I’d never, ever try out a spray bronzer unless I truly loved you right? Right. I’m awesome aren’t I? Go on tell me what an awesome blogger I am.

Lord.

Well…what’s to say….

It’s actually really difficult for me to say “OH MY GOD I HATE THIS” because I actually don’t hate it. I hate the way it made my skin look but that’s me being bias against tanning, bronzing, the sun, etc…etc…..hey you can’t teach an old dog new tricks! I don’t like tanned skin and you won’t change my mind on the subject now pass the SPF 550 and shut up!

Spray, Spray, Spray your way to a beautiful tan!

But….

I will say only good things about this because it has some serious key pro points to it. First of all it’s cheap as day old chips and actually for it’s inexpensive price tag it works. Gasp, shock, WOW!

Honestly, it really does work. $10 USD and you got yourself a killer tan minus harmful UV rays! Wahooo! I’m all over it or I would be if I liked the tanned look. I tested this on the underside of my arm and only applied once. I sprayed it on Sunday night and although the bottle says to keep spraying 1 to 2 times a week to touch up I think I’m good to go as it hasn’t faded since application. This is great news for those of you seeking a long wearing tan but not so good for me as I’m sporting an arm that’s half tanned…can you say goofy?

It’s actually really easy to use which impressed me as this is my first time using a product like this. Exfoliate and spray! That’s it. The spray is a clear liquid which turns into a brown, orangey shade over night (I read a few other reviews that said they seen a color change within 30 minutes but I seen nothing until the next day!). You won’t see the results right away but come morning you’ll be sporting some serious color.

Picture+072

Honestly, one fault is that the color doesn’t entirely look natural but since you’ll likely be using this on your legs mostly and maybe your arms it should be ok plus doesn’t everyone always crow about how slimming your legs appear when tanned! Liquid spray on diet? Waiter, can I has some more of this stuff? I’m not entirely sure I’d recommend it for a very fair skinned girl. I tested it in medium so I’d say take a step down from medium if you’re lighter tone however if you’re medium fair or darker this should look good!

Pros:

  • Cheap as bloody hell! $9.99 USD and you should be able to do both legs and both arms as well! You might even have a bit left over for touching up!
  • Applies easy! No mess, quick drying!
  • Fantastic staying power so far without touch ups!

Cons:

The color is a bit iffy so do a test spot prior to spraying an entire leg and realizing that the shade is so NOT you!

All in all I’m shocked to say that this stuff isn’t as bad as I originally pegged it out to be!

Would I Muse Approve it? No! The Muse does not approve of tanning even if it’s in a spray bottle hehe! Would I use it again? Sure, why not I could afford to look slimming, gorgeous, and tanned….maybe…kinda…..sorta…..

Try it out! You can’t really go wrong for the price and if you enjoy a good tan what better and safer way to look like you just hopped off a plane from Mexico!

Love spray tans?

Hate ‘em?

Tell the Muse!

Dior Luscious Lip Plumping Gloss

dior
Dior has released eight shades of a new lip plumping gloss which is available now from Sephora for $19.50 USD each. I find myself wondering about the applicator on these and streaky, messy application hmmmm…….

P212930 hero

After my run in with Dior’s Addict High Shine Lipstick I’m thinking I might skip on these. Although the colors and the formula look interesting enough I can’t get too excited about a plumping gloss…shrug….

If you’re loving ‘em be sure to check out your local color selection. Japan has an array of different shades not available within the US as does England!

Want ‘em?

Definitely a skip for me this time around!

Benefit BSpot

I’m willing to give Benefit’s newest fragrance a try since I’m such a huge fan of Maybe Baby!

untitled52465

At first glance it sounds like a rather odd combo of notes. A blend of mangos, freesia, peony, and sandalwood? Whoa. That’s alot to partake of in one bottle.

But I’ll give Benefit a chance with this one! I’ll be heading into Sephora to have a sniff! Hey you never know it could be another winner!

Want it?

Tried it already?
