Last month I spoke about a blogger event I attended at Dirty Martini in London and some of the companies that were there. One of these was companies was Orifame who had a wide range a beauty products on offer for us to try, one of which I will be sharing with you today.
The Giordani Gold bronzing pearls caught my eye at the event firstly because it has been quite some years since I’ve used bronzing pearls and it took me back to when I first starting using makeup. They look so pretty staring up from the packaging and are something different from the flat pressed bronzing powders on the market.
The bronzing pearls are available in four shades but the two I can describe from the catalogue photo’s are:
- Natural Bronze – pink, yellow, brown tones pearls
- Macaron Dreams – yellow, green, white and pink pearls
The others are available on the website.
Each powder pearl shade works in a different way on your skin for correction, illumination, counteracting redness and brightening tone so it is important you think about what you want to achieve from your bronzing pearls before selecting one. The Giordani Gold bronzing pearls I have are the natural bronze which contains three neutral brown sun kissed colours.
The Giordani Gold bronzing pearls can be used as either a blusher or a bronzer, however I always use them for the latter. The formulation of these beads is soft and smooth, giving my skin a radiant, natural glow due to the micronised pigments that reflect light. They contain a slight shimmer too, although this is subtle so doesn’t look overpowering on the skin. This is perfect for me because I really like that ‘glowy’ look but I’m not a big fan of lots of shimmer on my face unless it’s highlighter and even then I use a minimal amount.
You apply the bronzing pearls by simply swirling your brush in them and appling directly onto your face. The product applies reasonably sheer so it is easy to apply product to build it up to your desired look and I love that it gives you a natural looking tan rather than the orange tangoed look you can find with other bronzers.
I really like this product and it is a nice alternative to my Nars Laguna bronzer which is rapidly running out. The Giordani Gold bronzing pearls are available from Oriflame for £16.45.
What do you think of these bronzing pearls?
