Lancôme Star Bronzer Natural Glow in 02 Solaire | Review

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Lancôme has long held a special place in my heart, and not just because they make fantastic products, but also because their eyeliners and mascaras made an indelible impression on me as a teenager, and they were the holiest of holy grail products that I used and savored through my entire teenage years, and well into adulthood.
Lancôme Star Bronzer Natural Glow in 02 Solaire is an ultra-finely milled bronzer that feels silky-smooth in texture, and has a gorgeous and refined finish that is punctuated by a luminous, light shimmer. It effortlessly glides across the skin, deposits color evenly and gives the skin a gorgeous sun-kissed glow. This golden gem neither settles into fine lines, nor does it emphasize pores. Furthermore, the radiant sun-kissed glow is natural in appearance, unlike many bronzers that lean orange and artificial. Additionally, it does not oxidize on my skin, and thankfully remains true to color.
According to Lancôme,

This sheer silky-light powder delivers a natural sun-kissed glow in any season. Exceptional light-reflecting pigments ensure a radiant, tanned makeup result. Smooth and comfortable texture blends effortlessly and evenly into the skin. Skin feels silky soft and even toned.

  1. Although I'm not a bronzer wearer, that is one gorgeous pan!

  2. I think this is pretty but I also think you need the right skintone to make it work. I don't have that skintone.

  3. I love the finish and color of this bronzer!

  4. SO pretty!! The shade is pretty warm, but I love warmer bronzers for the summer!

    1. It definitely leans warm. I agree, it really is quite pretty!

  5. I really don't use bronzer much cos I'm pretty tan alllllllll year round but that one is GORGEOUS!

    1. It's definitely one of the prettier bronzers that I have seen. I don't often wear bronzers, but I am actually enjoying this one a lot. Even though I am cool-toned, I find that I can wear this shade when applied with a light hand.

  6. This is gorgeous in the pan. I don't wear bronzer though, they tend to look orange on me.

    1. It's definitely a beauty in the pan! Most turn orange on me as well. This one doesn't oxidize ant turn orange on me, and with a light hand I can wear it even though it is on the warm side.

  7. I adore bronzers, I need to try this!

    1. I think that you would be very impressed by this formula!

  8. I'm not much of a bronzer girl, but this looks gorgeous. Lancome blushes are always my downfall.

    1. Nor am I generally speaking, but this one is really stunning, and it doesn't turn orange on me!
