I am becoming a bit of a packaging bore, I’m afraid. I sit at my desk for hours clicking away at compacts and sliding open eyeshadow palettes. Ridiculous, impractical packaging makes me irrationally angry, whereas cool, well-thought-out packaging delights me. I like the rather funky housing for Bourjois’ Délice de Soleil – the mirror is quite unique in that it swivels as well as tilts, and the whole thing looks positively retro and (can I say this?) groovy.
The bronzer itself (let’s not forget the actual makeup!) applies smoothly and is a great shade for those who have got a bit of colour going on. It’s not for the fairest of skins, but neither is it orangey or overly dramatic. The brush is OK, but I never use these tiny brushes anyway, they’re about as much use as a chocolate teapot. I do hope that Bourjois bring out other delights in this packaging – perhaps some face powders or blushes. Note to those with younger sisters, daughters, or who just like Barbie: an empty Délice de Soleil compact would make an AMAZING doll’s dressing table! Glued to the top of the right sized box (covered in pretty, small-print wrapping paper) it has the perfect retro mirror along with (what will be) two empty storage compartments!
That’s enough Blue Peter-ing for one day – you can buy the bronzer at Boots for £8.99 here: BOOTS ONLINE
