Review: I picked this up from Ulta after coming back from Cancun late April. Ulta was also having their 20% Off Sale for Platinum customers (which was also the same time as the Sephora VIB Spring Sale Event) so I decided to try this after watching Jessica (jambeauty89) on YouTube. Luckily, they had testers at Ulta so I was able to pick up the right shade. If you are not familiar with the No 7 brand, they are a high quality U.K. drugstore brand (comparable to other U.K. brands such as Soap & Glory, Sleek Makeup and here in the US it is comparable to Sonia Kashuk as it is somewhat on the higher end drugstore makeup). The rose gold reflective metal casing is beautiful. It is very sturdy and it feels very luxurious. It reminds me of the Charlotte Tilbury packaging. There is no box that comes with the product, just the compact with a protective seal around it. There are three shades available, which for me is a major downside as I always prefer more color selection so a variety of skin tones can use the product. I picked up the shade Caramel, which is second shade. When you open the bronzer, it has a small embossed lines almost like pizza slices in an extremely thin way. The design makes the bronzer look and feel very high end.
The powder is soft, creamy and easy to blend. It is matte but it does not look cakey or powdery on the face. It definitely gives you a nice boost of color which makes the skin glow. It has a nice balance of cool and warm undertone which does not make you look orange. It is the perfect sun kissed shade. I have used this bronzer many times since purchasing it and I love it. It is long-wearing and it applies evenly on the skin. Would I repurchase? Yes.
