Annabelle Biggy Zebra Bronzing Powder Review and Swatches

Its that time of the year when we are all thinking about brozners and how to get that sun kissed glow! This bronzer has just the right amount of shimmer and color to look flattering on medium skin tones. I was never a fan of shimmery bronzer and I use a matte bronzer for contouring only. This has turned me in to a believer!! Lets move on to the swatches..


The five shades of Biggy Zebra Bronzing Powder

Swatch of a swipe across all shades - gorgeous bronze glow with gold shimmer!

Looking at the swatches above, you have an idea that the sun doesn't like my house anymore!! It doesn't visit us now, so the cloudy cool tones in the pics but the biggy bronzer shines through quite nicely.
This bronzer has shades of bronze with a lot of pigment and some shimmer. I have swatched each shade separately although they look like 3 colors repeating themselves, but I don't care, I swatched all 5 of them :P
I swirl my brush around this and lightly brush it all over my face, esp on the cheek bones, bridge of the nose and chin. I noticed that it does not make my face look muddy, in fact, the bronze hues and gold shimmers look very natural and add to the 'glow'. I often even skip my blush with this because it has some peach undertones that look lovely on my medium skintone. Thank goodness, its not orange nor brown. It never looks muddy. Please don't use this for contouring because it has shimmer and can make you look weird. Just saying...
Overall I really like this bronzer. I use it all the time and it looks amazing!! This retails for CA$ 11.95 and is available in all drugstores. You can also purchase this from Annabelle's website by using this link.
