The worst part of wandering drugstore cosmetic aisles is the inevitable money you will spend or debt you will force upon yourself (ok maybe that's just me). Why?
It's like a Murphy's Law of Cosmetics, whatever new and interesting product you can find that will be irresistible and beg to come home with you, will be found and will have to come home with you. Such was the case with the 100% Pure Cosmetics counter at Duane Reade (yes them again - I told you - they're taking over!!).
At first, just the title was enough to tempt me to take the bronzer home and dissect it.
The product testers piqued my interest twice as much after the super duper smooth application one swipe provided. It was a little pricey though for a beauty junkie like me, so rather than gamble on which color would suit my face, I settled on a bronzer. Who goes wrong with another bronzer in their powdery tan arsenal?
I had a fab photo shoot with the product. The little bird on my cardstock (my secret to the fab backgrounds! shhh!) made me think of Twitter and landing on a branch to nibble on my new bronzing fave.
When I opened the tin, I found that the cap can be used as a mirror - extra useful for on the go application.
Alright mad scientists. From what I'm reading, I'm pretty impressed with the ingredient list. You? Let me know!
See that little compact with the 12M towards the bottom? That's the product life of the pan after you open your product. Neat, huh?
