Hello my lovelies and Merry Christmas! <3 I really hope you are all having a wonderful time with your loved ones! I had the best two days filled with lots of smiles and magical moments. Santa’s also been pretty generous and managed to get me quite a few beauty and skincare bits, which I can’t wait to share with you :) As of today though, I thought I’d show you my new favorite bronzing powder by Soap & Glory and it’s their Solar Powder (£11). I know a lot of you fellow pale girls would hear me on that one as we all know how lifeless and dull our skin could look during this time of the year when our sun kissed glow is just a happy memory. And yes, I do need to fake this beautiful healthy look by adding some makeup… I don’t feel complete otherwise haha.

With that said, my partner in crime has recently been Solar Powder. Even though I am rather loyal to my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (review here), I have to admit – this blew me away! Solar Powder comes in one, universal shade but has two brownish bronze-y colors in it – a darker, more of a true bronzer shade and one that’s more nude-y and has some fine shimmery golden particles in it. I love this concept as you can mix both colors together for an overall glow or use the darker one for contour and the lighter one for subtle hint of color. When I first got Solar Powder, it had some pink-y highlighter on top (as you can see from the pics above) but it took exactly two swirls of the brush and it was gone, which l honestly prefer. Also, none of the two colors look orange or muddy on me and the shades are ideal for my pale skin.

The formula of this gem is spot on as well. The powder is not chalky at all and it feels very buttery and creamy. Solar Powder is also really pigmented and you need the lightest dab of the brush to get the color you desire. It applies very smoothly and blends effortlessly into the skin. Also, I find that Solar Powder has a lovely staying power and it wears on me for good 8-10 hours, which is great, considering that bronzer and blush are usually the first things to disappear on me.

What else can I say? Solar Powder is absolutely brilliant and I can’t think of anything bad to say about it really. It is my perfect winter bronzer and I love how the tiny shimmery bits add such luminous and beautiful glow to my face. I adore the healthy look this two-toned bronzer gives. It is also amazing for contouring and it makes the sculpting so easy and faff-free! I am in love, completely!

Have you tried Solar Powder before? Which is your favorite bronzer for the winter time?

Lots of love,

  10. Honestly, from all of the countless Soap & Glory reviews that I have read, nobody ever seems to have a bad thing to say about them. It's like they can do no wrong. I've been hesitant to try their products just because of the price, but with every review I read I sway more and more towards trying them.

    Great review, doll! Look forward to reading more. On point photos as well.

  12. Awesome review. I love soap and glory but we don't get everything from the line here in Canada. I recently ordered the breakfast scrub and it's amazing. This product looks fab. Thanks for letting me advertise on your blog. Excited! :)
