Bronzers that will make you swoon…

In my previous position (at a cosmetics company), I became obsessed with moulded and intricately-designed palettes. I saw a plethora of gorgeous designs either moulded like a relief (step aside, Michelangelo) or laser-etched onto the powder itself. The technology was becoming so advanced that it was possible to mould palettes with various colors and even interweave them amongst one another. They are truly little pieces of art – many of which would break my heart to touch. In fact, I would even consider purchasing two – one for display and the other to actually use. Is that crazy? Anyway, today I thought I would share with you my top picks for this year’s moulded or laser-etched bronzers…

{1} Guerlain Terra Inca Star Powder – The texture on this palette is incredible. Shades of golden beige and pink bronze are smartly selected to be extremely wearable, although taking that first swipe with my blush brush and tarnishing this impeccable design might stop my heart momentarily.

{2} Diorskin Nude Healthy Glow Powder – There is nothing prosaic about this palette. The four essential colors needed to replicate a healthy sun-kissed glow is literally interweaved into this pressed masterpiece. It is also available in two variants – one for fair to medium complexions and the other for medium to dark complexions.

{3} Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian Lace Powder Bronzer – Ok, let me start first by saying, I am already obsessed with lace. Throw in Sicilian lace? Double swoon! I love how the design exudes an air of fine Italian craftsmanship, which is why I am willing to bet that owning it will make me feel suddenly loftier.

{4} Laura Mercier Cheek Mélange – Reminiscent of a sunset, this Laura Mercier bronzer helps you achieve that perfect summer glow. And because it is long-wearing, your colour will remain relatively budge-proof despite the sweltering summer heat. And for the record: all efforts I have made to stop staring at this lovely piece of work has been deemed futile.

What are you favourite moulded palettes?
