I was very intrigued by the Maldives Magic Blonzer. Its presented as a combination of blush and bronzer suitable for the majority of skin tones. I was fortunate that I got this as a gift from a very thoughtful friend (its normal retail price is £35).
I was slightly concerned when I opened it as it was rather dark, and I am extremely pale. I have tried various bronzing type products and have only been happy with one so this was going to be a tough test.
The powder feels extremely fine and silky smooth. The colour is a warm brown bronze with very subtle golden shimmer. The colour is pigmented and also extremely buildable so I think this will suit a wide variety of skin tones. The colour lasts throughout the day with no fading.
Swatched below L-R: 1 swipe,2 swipes,3 swipes.
I can just about get away with it if I use a powder brush and very gingerly tap it in the product once, that gives me enough colour for both sides of my face.
It also works really nice as an eyeshadow, I use it in the crease with a beige on the main lid for a no fuss natural look.
I'm really pleased that I have this although I would say its probably more suited for those darker than me (I'm a bit lighter than a MAC NW15).
Here is my eye of the day with the fall Le Cirque Kaleidoscope. I was slightly hesitant to post this as I couldn't catch all the tones of the colours but hopefully it gives you an idea.
Here is it using the Couche de Coleurs layering technique (all the colours are layered from the top to bottom in the kit, so you start from the lightest and go down to the darkest)
For the next one I just added a bit of the purple shade to the crease and outer edge to give it a bit more depth.
I am really loving this, and can create a variety of looks with it.
