Freedom Matte bronzer

Freedom Makeup London: Matte Bronzer – Shade 110

I received this bronzer from Freedom as part of a free gift when the company first launched.  It has simple packaging and a very beautiful swirl pattern imprinted into the product.  I was impressed with the size and colour, but, as I had so many other bronzers ‘on the go’ I decided to put it aside rather than opening another new product into my already ridiculously large makeup collection.

This attitude lasted for a good couple of months or so before my nagging sense of curiosity convinced me that really, there was no reason to wait to open this product.

“Its a bronzer Megan, not a mascara… it isn’t going to dry out, (I said to myself),  just open it and try it out!”

So, two weeks later and I have been using this every day and I am pleased to report that I really am enjoying this product.  The powder is finely milled and although the colour looked quite deep in the pan, (and I worried it might be a bit orange), I actually think the tone is more neutral and it works really nicely on my skin.

Freedom states that this matte bronzer ‘shade 110’ compliments all skin tones.  I just can’t help but think that those kinds of assertions are a bit ridiculous.  I am pretty pale and you can see that this bronzer actually provides a good depth of colour for me without being too muddy.  If I had a skin tone with more depth of colour I can imagine that this would quickly become too light.  I am hoping the fact that this bronzer has an allocated shade number may mean that they intend to add other colours to the range.  We can hope!

The other point I want to mention is that I feel like this bronzer has a bit of glow too it.  I don’t mean glitter – there is certainly no glitter.  But I feel like it has a bit of dimension to it, certainly more so than other matte bronzers in my collection.  I actually think that is a good thing though – sometimes when bronzers are matte they get a bit tricky to blend nicely, but this one from Freedom blends like a dream.

Here you can see more of a close-up of the swatches. The colour looks quite dark on the inside of my arm, but on the face it works well.  If feel like you can see the ‘glow’ of the product in this image too!

This bronzer hasn’t been tested on animals, and at GBP2 (about Au$4) it is nicely priced.  I would certainly buy this bronzer again in the future and have very much appreciated getting it as part of a ‘free-gift with purchase’ deal.

Now that summer is well and truly on its way, I am happy to embrace any product that will help me to  look like a bronzed beauty  (as I huddle in the air conditioning… desperate to escape the terrible heat.  It was 29 degrees celsius at 8am this morning!)

Anyway.  I digress 🙂

If you are interested in having a look at the Freedom range for yourself, you can find it here.

Have a great day!
