Look Beauty Holiday Glow Bronzer in Ibiza - Review

Ever since the Look Beauty stand popped up in my local Superdrug I haven't been able to resist an item or ten.
As you may or may not know, Look Beauty is actually the brain child of Look Magazine
and the cosmetic line has by far surpassed my expectations of what I ever anticipated it to be.
Honestly I find Look Beauty to be one of the better UK high street brands
and find they have a great grasp of what is current!

Much like the Make Me Blush blushes in the collective the Holiday Glow bronzers come housed in square metallic packaging,the casing is fairly bulky but it doesn't look overly tacky and the main aspect is that it protects the blush from general wear and tear. 
The compact also has a large mirror inside which is ideal for on the go touch-ups!

The Holiday Glow bronzers come in three shades - Hollywood, Rio and Ibiza.
I settled on Ibiza as although marketed as a bronzer the shade really lends itself to being a
great dusky pink/brown blush that isn't too dissimilar to Benefit's Dallas Blush/Bronzer.
I deem Ibiza to be a warm toned mix of brown and pink with a light shimmer finish.
On most skin tones this will be a blush/bronzer but deeper skin tones can use this as a highlight option.
The beauty of this shade is that it warms the skin gently without being orange or ruddy in tone
and is a great shade to use now that we are transitioning into Autumn.

The Holiday Glow shades are fairly soft in texture so you will experience some fall out
but on the plus side the softer formula do make for easier blending and application.
The bronzer  itself feels velvety soft on the skin, light and does not cake,
nor does it highlight problematic areas or cling to dry patches of skin.
Truthfully the bronzers are not the most pigmented in the world but as the shades are fairly subtle you can build these up by the layer without worrying about them caking on the skin or looking over the top.
I found Holiday Glow - Ibiza to wear really well as it is subtle I found it to fade evenly
and the formula seems to work rather well with my oily skin lasting for around 9 hours 
before signs of wear began to show.
