Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder | Review

I don't really use bronzers that much, I'm so pale that it's hard to find one that wouldn't make me look like an Oompa Loompa. But (there is always a but,) a while ago I got a couple of Bourjois bronzing powders just because I loved the way they swatched on my hand when I was browsing makeup in Boots (and they were on offer, who doesn't like offers). The one I'm reviewing in this post is Delice de Poudre in 51, it comes in a lovely chocolatey-looking box and when you open it, it looks and smells like chocolate. Lovely. The powder doesn't have that orange effect that I'm not really a fan of, it also has a bit of sparkle to it when in the box, but it doesn't translate on my face. It's slightly glowy but not in a bad way. The powder is buildable and also great for contouring. Personally, I only need a touch of 51 but there is also a darker shade - 52, if you are not as pale as me or if you get a tan over summer etc. I unfortunately cannot get a tan, my skin goes tomato red straight away. Anywho, I would definitely recommend this powder and I will probably re-purchase if I don't find anything better. Its got a good price tag too.
