I have started to use bronzers a lot more recently since I have become enthralled with contouring.
The Golden Rose S.A team were kind enough to send over their Mineral Terracotta Powder for me to try out. You might be wondering about the Golden Rose brand since it isn’t commercialised yet. Golden Rose makeup was founded in Turkey and they offer a fully fledged range of makeup products. The great thing is that that these products are cost effective but aim to provide the same results as more expensive brands.
The Mineral Terracotta powder is actually a range of matte powders that provide smooth coverage. There are six shades in total and two of the shades (05 and 06) in the Mineral Terracotta range that are actually a bronzer and highlighter duo, which are the essentials for contouring.
I was given shade 05 which I found a little light for a proper contour I would probably go with shade 06 since it’s more orange toned it sort of blended into my skin. The bronze half is matte but there’s a hint of shimmer. It might have not worked for contouring for me but it provides a really a amazing sunkissed glow. The aim of the powder is to make the skin appear radiant and healthy and this duo does just that. The smooth velvety texture glides onto the skin which is one of my favourite things about the product. I used the matte side in the hollows of my cheeks and the highlight on my cheeks above my blusher. I also used a large powder brush and mixed both colours together and used that instead of blush. This provided that much coveted glow. The colour pigment is potent and the lasting power of the product is really good. Just one thing if you use a lighter base like BB cream for example you would need to reapply after a few hours but I found it worked quite well with a heavier base.
My only qualm is the packaging it’s a little flimsy. I don’t know if it’s just me but I hate when any of my palettes break.
