It is moments like these when I'm reminded why I love beauty blogging. Knowing that I can come on here and fully express my excitement at hitting pan on a bronzer and, not only will my readers not judge me, they will also understand and share my joy.....that's something you can't put a price on.
Telling my family or friends that aren't into makeup like me (aka all of them) that I just hit pan on my bronzer is a complete buzzkill. They just don't comprehend why this is such a big deal and therefore are incapable of appreciating the situation like I know you guys can :)
The flash of pan you are seeing belongs to E.L.F.'s Essential Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Matte Bronze. I've had this for forever it seems. I actually don't use this as a bronzer, but as a contour. It has a very neutral, almost cool, undertone to it that's perfect for properly mimicking a shadow. You just can't do that with a typical bronzer with a warmer undertone as naturally-occurring shadows aren't orange or red.
This technically isn't the first time I've hit pan. I've gone through 2 shadows in my 120-palette from BH Cosmetics. But I haven't used that palette in ages and the last time I used it was way before I had even planned on starting this blog, so I'm not counting those.
If you've been with me and Amber Likes Beauty!, you may recognize this bronzer from an old post I did about contouring. You can check that out here.
