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.
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 🙂

Have a great day!
