17 Miami Pop Bronzer

As I write this I'm currently sitting in my living room, watching a dog urinate against a tree whilst heavy grey clouds rapidly fill the sky. It's at moments like these I'm hugely thankful make up brand 17 have taken inspiration for their latest range from the bustling urban heat of Miami; NOT the subdued glamour of my gloomy west London street.

The prettiest item from this limited edition capsule collection is without a doubt the gorgeous golden Miami Pop Bronzer. Weighing in at a reasonable 7.3g, this plastic compact emblazoned with two vivid pink flamingos is quite simply brash in its appearance. Swirls of gold and copper powder crushed together create a simmering marbled effect, packaged up neatly in a fluorescent orange case. Trust me, you won't be losing this in your make up bag...

As the above picture swatch clearly demonstrates, this bronzer is not for the faint hearted. Brimming with lashings of golden sparkle and orange based shimmer, it takes an extremely light hand to get the application both modest and workable. Fair enough, I'm sure there are a heap of young girls who will happily load this on without a care in the world, but for anyone who is even vaguely conscious about appearing tangoed, this rich colour is best left on the shelf.

After a few dodgy attempts with a hideously overloaded bronzing brush, I finally managed to get the colour transfer somewhat wearable against my pale, cool toned skin. In all honesty I do like the finish; it's very bright, very lifted, very luminous and relatively soft; kind of like a less graceful Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick. 5 years ago I would have certainly rocked this all summer - and considering 17 is aimed at teens, I can see this shade becoming a huge hit with the under 19's - but at the age I'm at now it's just feels way too overbearing for me. Which is a shame really, because I actually think the general formula and longevity is pretty cracking for the price. *sigh*

17 Miami Pop Bronzer is available from selected boots stores nationwide and for £4.99

it's so pretty! I like that it is a lighter golden tone and not as bronzey as most bonzers.

That color looks so bright and fun on you, perfect for a Summer day.

Mmmm....I kind of like it, but then again I can see individual glitter particles on your cheek. Might pass.
