When I first saw Stila's Summer Illuminating Collection there were two things that I definitely wanted, one of which was the Passion Fruit Lip and Cheek Stain (read about it here) and the other was the Self Adjusting Bronze.
I know I spoke about Stila's Set and Bronze last week (read it here) and it's going to look like I am addicted to bronzer - which mmmm might be a little true but could you blame me when Stila produce such amazing products. When I got a sneak preview of this a couple of months ago I swatched it and then promptly forgot and moved onto swatching the other products. I thought it was just another bronzer. It wasn't until I got home that I couldn't take my eyes off my hand. It was bronzed to perfection.
The powder is a natural bronze with a hint of shimmer (so little shimmer I thought it was matte). As the product says, it's self adjusting. I thought this was a bit of a gimmick but the powder reacts to each person's skin PH to give a custom bronze.
To be honest I am not sure if it looks different on everybody and I don't really mind if that is a gimmick because the result of the powder on me is beautiful luminous bronze skin. The packaging is an adorable little black case with stars on the outside and a handy mirror inside.
Although there is a slight shimmer in the product it doesn't really transfer onto the face and as you can see from the swatch below it warms the skin without leaving a ruddy or mucky look on the skin.
Ok so I might be wearing a little too much make up but I was going to pretend Oxegen, so trust me, I looked very pared down towards most of the others there.
Stila Custom Colour Bronze costs £13.00 which is amazing value for a quality bronzer. I bought mine from ASOS (here) but it's also available from Stila.co.uk (here) where they have free Ireland and UK shipping and they also have a range of Custom Colour Blush (a pink and a coral).
