My Glow Go-to

Hi today's post isn't about anything new but actually a product that is quite old. It is one of my faaaavorites but I don't think a lot of people really know about it.

We have to admit that 17 is hardly the most in demand highstreet makeup brand, and whilst I don't particularly like (or know) most of what they sell their 'Instant Glow Shimmer Brick' is my go to when wanting a bronzey look.

It comes in 2 different shades,'Pink Bronze' and 'Gold Bronze'. Being mixed race I have a very warm complexion so I always get gold bronze but if you have a lighter, cooler complexion maybe you would go for pink bronze. (Also sorry about the pics, it has been used... a lot).
The amazing thing about this powder is that you can use it anywhere on the face. You can use it on your eyes for eyeshadow, use the lightest shade for a highlight and obviously you can sweep your brush through all the shades to use as a bronzer to give a lovely shimmery glow. I have even patted the powder over a lipstick to give it a sheen. Whenever I want a ultra bronzed look this is my go to product, and if I need to be quick you could literally get away with using only this product (obviously along with your foundation/ concealer and brows/ mascara). I think I will post this look soon.

Another thing I love about it is that it isn't glittery, I can't stress how much I hate this- there is a MASSIVE difference between glitter and shimmer. The colours are ultra pigmented and you only need one sweep of the brush for great application and it will last you for ages! Something you wouldn't expect from a low price brand. When ever I use this bronzing brick I get a ton of compliments (especially at work) about my skin, people say I have glowing or great skin and when I tell them it's a product from 17 they can't believe me.

I absolutely loveeee this and I love the amazing price at only £4.99! It's definitely something I will buy again and again and I will continue to use for a long time. Pick it up from Boots and give it a try!
