Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer in Ross & Rachel

I was fully expecting this bronzer and blush combo to be far too warm for my cool-toned skin, but somehow it works - largely, I think, due to the fact that the pink blush is pretty cool toned, and the bronzer is a bit warm, so swirling the two together cancels out the warmth a little bit.  Applied separately, the bronzer is a little on the orangey side for me, but if your skin is warm toned you could probably make it work.

Anyway, debates about warmth aside, Too Faced's Blushing Bronzer is a ginormous, shiny heart shaped compact which is more than a little kitsch.  I like the way the compact contains an equally ginormous heart shaped mirror in the lid, and that the product itself is generous, too - 18g, in fact.

The bronzer and blush are both soft and easily blendable, and a quick swirl picks up product as effectively as a careful dip.  Both the blush and the bronzer have the slightest hint of shimmer running through them, but on the skin they look fairly natural - definitely not overly glittery, just slightly glowing.

If you're looking for a quick way to a glowing, rosy bronzed face this summer, this product is great - although if you're pale like me you might prefer the Carrie & Big colourway, which has a lighter bronzer and a coral toned blush (and unfortunately may only be available in the States).  At £28, Soul Mates is a bit of a treat, but the large, sturdy compact and generous amount of product means it should last you well beyond the end of summer.  Find it at Debenhams.
