That cherub’s got junk in his trunk!
Not only does Lancome’s new limited edition Star Bronzer ($50) for face and body work like a charm; it looks like one too.
Doesn’t it look like the cherub in the pan is hugging the sun?
Star Bronzer gave my cheeks a warm glow, and, coupled with Clinique Fireberry Glosswear, helped me do this easy summer look.
Lancome obviously had fun with this compact. Within the image in the pan are three different bronzing colors. I love the golden brown matte from the cherub’s bum.
Here are swatches of the three most distinct shades from different parts of the compact:
- A shimmery bronze with golden sparkle swatched from the sun to the left of the nekkid cherub
- A warm golden brown matte from the cherub’s arse
- A shimmery yellow gold from the cherub’s wings
What a great bronzer for summer! Too bad it’s a little on the expensive side. I do love how it looks with Fireberry Glosswear. I discovered how compatible the two products are by accident this morning.
I wanted a latte from the coffee shop across the street, but I didn’t want to leave the house without minimal makeup (I don’t want to scare the local children with my dark circles).
I grabbed my MAC 116 blush brush and swiped Star Bronzer onto the applies of both cheeks. Then, I added Dior Concealer to hide my dark circles and curled my lashes with Shu Uemura’s Curler.
I used a MAC 266 brush and MAC Concrete eyeshadow to fill in my brows and finished the look with Clinique Fireberry Glosswear lipgloss. Done in less than three minutes.
Don’t you love it when you find cheek and lip colors that complement each other? I like how the bronze and gold tones in both Star Bronzer and Fireberry work together.

See how huge the Star Bronzer compact is? It’s ginormous. I can barely wrap my fingers around it. At least Lancome doesn’t stiff you on the product. You do get a lot for that $50 price.
Lancome says Star Bronzer can also be used on your body, so I think I might try it out on my arms and legs next.
Star Bronzer is availabe at Lancome counters and online.
Happy Saturday, ladies! It’s warm and sunny here, and my coffee’s kicked in, so now I’m off for a run around the neighborhood. How’s your day been so far?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
