My sister’s BFF turned me onto Victoria’s Secret Flawless Glow Face Bronzer, from the Bare Bronze Collection. This velvety duo-bronzer has two finishes. Use the satin matte shade to contour, the pearly powder to highlight; and blend the two shades together for a shimmering bronze glow.

The shimmery half of the duo leaves you looking sunkissed, rather than muddy – a la Lindsay “Dirty Face” Lohan.

Here’s another tip passed along from Lauren’s friend: apply the shimmery shade, in a stripe, down the middle of the nose – then continue the line from the bottom of the nose to the cupid’s bow. And ta-da – instant hotness.

Flawless Glow Face Bronzer is available in three shades: light (glow 1), light/medium (glow 2), and medium (glow 3). I’ve got a Halle Berry-esque complexion and I wear the light/medium, just to give you an idea.

On the website, Flawless Glow Face Bronzer will set you back $17.50. But my sister and I snagged ours in the Victoria’s Secret store, where they’re selling these babies for $4.37! There’s also this adorable kabuki brush (super soft brown bristles with hot pink tips) that’s on sale for $4.87.

I finally cashed in the gift card I got last September at Fashion Week – and bought the Flawless Glow Face Bronzer and the Very Sexy Demi Push-Up Bra with Gel-Curve (very sexy, indeed).

    I’m a big fan of a nicely applied bronzer, I love to look slightly sunkissed even in the middle of winter : )

    I usually wear Mary Kay’s version, which also combines a few differnt shades of bronzer, but I might just have to try the VS version too!

    Thanks Daneen!

    I just read someone raving about this bronzer somewhere, it sounds great, but I’m so reluctant to stray from my NARS bronzer. Oh and LOL @ Lohan’s ‘dirty face’

    ah, as a vickie’s associate i can share some wisdom. the bronzer was 4.37 on semi-annual sale. it ended about a weekish ago so there might be some leftovers still in stores or online, but otherwise you’ll have to wait till june to get these babies for cheap again.

    there are also gorgeous bare bronze eyeshadows to check out- really good for like a tan summery look (so maybe not so much now when we’re all pale and sickly looking…) so keep an eye out.
