Colour Me In: 3 Affordable Australian Bronzers

'Colour Me In' is a series of posts in collaboration with Alice of ArsyParsy, Tezza of Myteeefine and Amanda of Thai-Tales!


We talkin' STRAYA bronzers today!

I just wanted to quickly show you 3 Australian branded products in my collection that I do switch around from time to time, to use as bronzers.

With the upcoming warming Spring and Summer, bronzers are a must-have in your make-up collection to fake that beautiful bronzed and sunkissed look (and cheekbones too for many of us Asians), what do you say?

Australis Paparazzi Perfect HD Blush in Poser

Sure, it's not a bronzing product.. but it certainly can be used for bronzing! :P

Left to right: 1,2,3,4

Poser is blusher product but no way will I ever use such shades as blushers! There's 4 shades of brown in this product and from what I see, there's a shade suited for every's tone complexion -- cool, warm and neutral. I really love the idea of that. All shades are very decent in pigmentation and do have shimmers to them, but it's really barely visible once applied onto the hollow of the cheeks!

Australis Paparazzi Perfect HD Blusher in Flash It

As you can tell.. Flash It is one handy trio for applying blusher, highlighting and bronzing or contouring. However, in comparison with Poser, the browner shade of this trio is more 'orangey' which I really don't dig. It's also contains less shimmers, but I do prefer the warmer-toned brown from Poser. :P

Face Of Australia Mineral Therapy Bronzing Pearls

A real bronzing product!

From its name, you can tell what it is... bronzing pears in a bottle! I've only started using this product recently and I love it! There's a sheen of luminousity to it which I do like as it's perfect for that bronzed/sunkissed look! The product itself is silky and blends very well! However, it does go on to be a bit more pink on me, so it'd be great if they had more shades.

So those are three wonderful and easy-to-access Aussie-branded bronzing products that you definitely can't miss next time you're around at Priceline, Big W or any other Australis & Face Of Australia stockists!

Have you ever tried any of the products mentioned in this post?

Are you a bronzing babe, or nay?

I've only started bronzing recently, and I love it! My favourite from the products mentioned is the Face Of Australia Mineral Therapy Bronzing Pearls! LOVE the luminous finish so much!

This week's chosen colour is 'brown' -- usually not a very appealing colour, but it's different when it comes to make-up I can tell ya! :P

If you're bronzer babe, check out Amanda's post on bronzers too! If you're a circle lenses wearer, perhaps click to Tezza's post of brown circle lenses? And of course, neutral eyeshadows are everyone's favourites, so a must-click is to Alice's everyday barely there eyeshadow routine!

  1. I own Poser and I agree, I wouldn't use it as a blush! :p

  2. I own Poser and love using it for contouring! It looks fabulous, but I have to be very careful as it's so pigmented!

  3. The Face of Australia product looks beautiful!

  4. I don't usually bronze but when I do, I use the Australis stuff to bronze as well! I have the FoA one too, but for some reason always seem to reach for Australis more. :3
