Lancôme Tropiques Minerale- Review + Swatches

Happy Saturday ladies.

Hope you are all keep well.

If you have been following me for a while you will know that my thing is cheek products. It could be blush, highlighters or bronzers. I have overloaded drawers with products to make your cheeks look glowy, more defined, fuller, matte and of course sun kissed! I love the sun kissed look! I think it suits my latin skin.

On a recent "What I'm using this week" video I spoke about this lovely bronzer by Lancôme.


I have to be honest! Lancôme is not a counter that catches my attention. I hardly ever stop by and look at what they have. I recognise they have lovely products that work but I think it's a brand which targets older ladies. I think!

This product has a neat packaging. Simple yet practical and classic. The lid has a gold/coppery tone which I thought was a nice touch considering this is a mineral bronzer.
 And once you open it you have this kind of product dispenser which I actually don't like. I find it gets messy and you get a lot of product on the lid.
When I have products like this I just open 2 or 3 holes and keep the other ones sealed. I find this is a neater way with less waste.


As I said on my video this product is very nice! It's soft, gentle and not heavy at all. It gives you a very natural look which can be overdone if you are not careful. I like it!
The only problem which was my problem and nothing to do with the product is that this shade is a bit too light for me and I don't get that a defined bronzy look. It's more like a highlighter or super soft bronzer for me. I am at the moment a mmm maybe near a NC30 and it's a bit too light.
See the swatches below and you will see what I mean. The colour gets lots (even in my hand)

Swatches:

No flash- The colour is kind of lost
 With flash- now you can see it and it gives a lovely radiance to the skin but yet I wouldn't say it's a very bronzy look.
So, to sum up- Yes, it's a lovely product and I will keep on using it. Shame I got the wrong shade. Entirely my fault and nothing to do with Lancôme!

I will keep an eye at the end of the month with all the Xmas sales to see if they have a darker shade at a bargain price again :)
