Annabelle Zebra Bronzer - Haute Gold

My latest Annabelle love...is the Zebra Bronzer in Haute Gold


At first glance, the colours seemed a bit too brown and dark to suit my skintone.


Fortunately, I was quite mistaken! Check out these swatches on my NC20-ish skintone:


These are each individual strips swatched with my fingers. Left to right corresponds with each stripe from bottom to top in the product.

Once swirled, the colour turns into a subtle, golden glow. There are no coarse glitters whatever or even distinct shimmers, just a beautiful pearly sheen.


As you can see in the same look I posted yesterday, the colour is extremely subtle but enough to warm up my skin slightly, as well as giving a healthy glow.


I love that this colour suits fair skintones so well without looking too obvious and fake! Even on darker skintones it would be a great highlighter for a glowy summer look.

Here's a rundown of the pros and cons:

The good
- no orange tones!
- suits even fair skintones
- adds healthy, natural looking glow
- no distinct shimmers or glitters
- affordable price since it is a drugstore product

The bad
- None!

Overall: If you don't have any bronzer in your life...you're missing out without this! Hurry and get to a drugstore, stat! :)
