L’Oreal Paris Glam Bronze Eau De Soleil – IMG_5729

This is a liquid bronzer with a tiny gold shimmer inside, “Weightless fresh bronzer, natural healthy tan. Our 1st liquid bronzer, radiant sunkissed glow, no makeup feel”.

I must admit that when I first tried this product out, I was scared as I have never used a liquid bronzer before. As I carried on and learned how to work with it, I became more confident and realised how easy it was.

The packaging is not very practical, it takes up a lot of room in my makeup bag, has no pump to get it out, which makes it harder to not waste the product as it is liquid form it just runs down my hand if I use my hand as my palette.

The packaging is exactly the same as the Nude Magique foundation, slightly runnier in thickness.

Glam Bronze Compared to Nude Magique foundation.


As you can see in this photo Glam Bronze is thinner and moves on my hand more than the Nude Magique foundation.


Both blended out.


Both blended out with flash to show shimmer.

It is very easy to use too much, (see photo) as there is no pump to get a small amount out, but if blended it can look natural, and give a beautiful sun-kissed glow.

It sets semi matte on myself, but if I use it over my powder it remains matte which is something I like about this product, considering the shimmer in the product it can only be detected if you look very close at the face.



With flash to enhance the shimmer.


A strong positive to this product is that once applied it does not look cakey on the skin unlike powder bronzers which can enhance this effect.

The smell is too strong, for me I do not want to smell that on my face all day. It is similar to how hairspray smells so if you are sensitive to strong fragrances bare this in mind because it is on your face.

It blends well with fingers or brush, I would recommend using a brush to make sure it is completely blended. I use my fingers and mainly my Real Techniques Buffing Brush, which is perfect for everything.

I think it will be good in particular for me in the beginning of summer when I need to darken my remaining winter foundations. Hopefully this will dilute the fragrance too, and of course for general bronzing.

For someone as pale as me, a little goes a very long way and the 30ml will last a long time which is great value for money!

Have you tried this liquid bronzer?
